    What happened to "getaway day"?

    Not too pleased to see the Reds being forced to hang around Houston an entire day to play the last of a four game series. What happened to the afternoon game when a team is heading out? Not sure who schedules the game times, but I think it's crap to have the Reds catch a late night flight to Chicago when it's unnecessary. Especially during the longest road trip of the year.
    As God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.

    Add in the fact that the Cubs are off today, and tomorrow's game isn't looking good. (And Harden hasn't injured himself yet, so he will be pitching.)

    On the other hand if it were a day game today it probably wouldn't be on tv.

    GREAT POINT.

    Watch us get rained out tomorrow in Chicago though.

    Today should've been a day game, but at least tomorrow is a night game.

    That's what the radio is for, brother.

    Yea, you guys are spoiled (even if the team isn't playing great, I'd still like to watch them). I'm in San Diego and haven't ordered MLB.TV yet, so it's Marty and the Cowboy thus far.

    I guess I'm an old man by message board standards, but at age 40, I remember when the majority of games were not televised. Home games were on once or twice per year and it was a big deal. WLWT Channel 5 carried the Reds when they were on the road and we listened to "Marty & Joe on Reds radio" the rest of the way.

    Games being on tv are much more interesting than the radio in my opinion. In fact, if it's not on tv. I usually just check gametracker online.

    In that case, you're missing out. Marty can be brash, arrogant, and all those things, but he's also a hall of famer. The Cowboy is funny to me. He's definately still a player in his mind.

    Hopefully Harden continues his poor streak. It can't last that much longer.

    At work I can at least listen to day games, that's good enough, even though,---maybe it's just in my mind---- Reds don't seem to do so well in those day games. Anyhow, I prefer to listen to the radio guys when George Grande is on the tube. His incessant need to make up stories is as annoying as listening to my ex-wife.

    Ahhh, but the club is currently on the back end of an 11 day road trip. That makes it the longest of the season.
