    What Reds used the Pink Bats today? Auctions now live on MLB.com

    Missed the game today. So what Reds used the pink bats? They should raise some nice coin when they hit mlb auctions. I'd love to have one, maybe some no count guys will go cheap....I just saw Thome go yard with one and Bill Hall hit a walk off with the pink bat. Wonder if some guys will keep using them if they can......

    Thanks........just watching Sox-Twins on espn game tonight, quite a few are using them on both teams. I'd say over half and all the big names Thome, Konerko and Hunter. AJ just went yard with one. Maybe more Reds should have used them, couldn't have hurt.

    Griffey used a black bat in his last at bat when the game was on the line.

    Eckstein, Speizio, and Edmonds used them in the Cardinals game. Eckstein and Speizio only used them for one or two at bats, but Edmonds used it for the rest of the game.

    Speizio's bat matched the little pink thing he has growing on his chin. lol

    Maybe it's not politically correct to say, but I think there'd be greater opportunity for corporate synergy with the Breast Cancer research movement if the people in charge had picked a more "useful" color than pink.

    Based on the remarks in the stands today, the pink bats were decidedly NOT a hit.

    Pink is THE color of breast cancer awareness and research. To use any other color would defeat the purpose. And why the heck would the people in the stands care what color bats they're using? Arroyo uses a red bat; do they dislike that too?

    In addition to Griffey, Dunn used his regular one in his last AB as well.

    And hopefully LaRue's pink bat will bring more money as he hit a home run with it.

    Both teams were back to their normal bats when the game went into extras. I guess the agreement was only for 9 innings.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Instead of using a pink bat, Barry Bonds used "the clear" one.

    I don't think he was saying they should have used blue bats when the color is pink. I think he was saying perhaps they should have chosen a different color back when the whole thing started.

    Exactly. I get the whole "pink = women" kinda thing -- but if the goal was to try and use the color to increase awareness among all people, it's a lot more difficult to include "pink" into sporting events like baseball and football.

    I'm in favor of the idea, and I hope they raise a lot of money with this promotion...but, then again, I think we should be raising awareness and money for ALL kinds of cancer research as opposed to focusing on just one specific issue.

    Was Lopez using a pink bat as well? I couldn't tell from my vantage point in the ballpark...
