    Re: 8.1.09 Reds v Rockies

    Lots of reasons to watch tonight...Bailey and Rolen's debut. Let's hope for a game in which we have a chance after the first IP.

    Sure is weird seeing Rolen in a Cincy uni.

    And why isn't Hanigan batting leadoff or 2nd?!?

    Yes, I know, it's cuz Dusty says catchers don't bat that high...just frustrating to see our two worst hitters batting 1-2.

    96 chz for first pitch strike on Barmes...then 94 on the black at the knees. 5 pitches, 5 strikes. Sexy.

    Then the 0-2 hook nailed, but the vacuum at 3b gobbles it and 2 down! Very nice play by Rolen!

    Seeing Rolen at 3rd, I feel like I just called up to be a fan of an actual big league team.

    That was a horrible call.

    Nice to see this Homer coming out of the gates. Very nice.

    Drew tattoo's one into the gap in RCF for a stand up double. Very nice!

    Bailey running it in there at 97, Ubaldo says hey look, I can hit 98.

    Check that. Next pitch at 100

    A rare first inning lead for the Reds as Sutton scores on Votto's ground out. 1-0 Reds

    Reds RS/RA for the 1st inning now reduced to 44/6,549 :

    Hard to recall the Reds both shutting out the opponent in the 1st, AND getting the lead.
