I would like to see Gomes go to AAA and get hot like Hariston did last season.He hasn't had a lot success the past few years and could really use the ABs to get his swing right and build confidence.Hope he takes the job.
I'm not cool enough to have a good signature
Its officialy Opening Day.Can't wait for the game.
My prediction is that we loose.We are going up against one of the teams favored to win the WS and one of the best arms in the game.My hope is that Harang can keep us in the game and we can sneak away with a late inning win but don't see it happening.Still.............GO REDS!!!!!!!!!!
I can't even sleep. I am supposed to leave for Cincinnati at 7:00 in the morning, but I can't shake the excitement that is Opening Day.
The greatest thing about it is that even though The weather will be awful, the lineup is not our best (argue that all you want), and I have to drive 3 Hrs just to get to the game.......There is not a place in the world that I would rather be at 1:10 tomorrow afternoon than at Great American Ballpark in section 413 Row K seat 15 or 16 (Depending on which seat My old man wants). I am only 20 years old, but this is a tradition in my family, as I am sure it is in most of yours. Skipping class and work to see the 1st franchise in baseball Open up the season is by far the best day of the year, every year. I love being a part of REDS nation, and I am sure you are too. So here is to the 2009 Cincinnati Reds.....May it be a year of great baseball in the Queen City, and give the Reds' fans from all over something to cheer about come October. I hope you all are as excited as I am.
WE DON'T, WE DON'T, WE DON'T MESS AROUND HEY!
Hey fugowitribe, I'm with you. I've been complaining all day about the Reds' moves today, but I'm still really excited about the start of the season and am having trouble getting to sleep before leaving for Cincy early in the morning.
Go Reds- Say what you want, but I'm excited about the Reds for the first time in 5+ years.
I've heard the term "dark horse" in relation to the reds for years now, at least since Willie Mo was turning heads and it has gotten me over excited at this time every year; last season finally broke my heart. I'm going to need to see proof of improvement.
Go Reds, in 2009 and forever.
fugowitribe--I agree with most everything you posted. Opening Day is my Christmas, Thanksgiving and July 4th all wrapped into one. I am much older than you and am still like a kid unable to sleep the night before Opening Day....Go REDS!
.....and guess who scored the only run today and had one of only 3 hits against Santana...
.....drum roll please.....
Old McDonald had a hit.....ee yi, ee yi, oh.
You never know what's going to happen during any "one" game.
This lineup was unacceptable for most any day of the season, let alone opening day. Who's this Darrell Darrellson guy and why did Dusty bat him 2nd?
