    What? Cairo and Valdez in the lineup? Sunday Special, Dusty

    He's been playing Sunday Specials for a week now out of necessity, and they are 5-1.

    In the grand scheme of things, today is an icing on the cake thing. While a sweep would be obviously awesome, the Reds have done so much heavy lifting that today is a must game for one team---and it isn't the one I root for.

    To bring back the now immortal words of Orlando Cabrera, circa 2010, "you win when you can, not when you have to."

    Can't win without 'em

    Not sure I wouldn't hit Hanigan sixth and bump Cairo and Valdez down a spot, but other than that I'm in full agreement for this lineup. Rolen has earned a day off, and Phillips shouldn't play until he's 100%.
    Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman. Damn glad to meet ya.

    KittyDuran wants to go but the seat she wants is wheelchair accessible only - she tried sounding pitiful to a Kroger employee to no avail! She could go to another Kroger & lie but would be kicked out of the ballpark... ) Well, she's onto GABP to try her luck there!

    Perfect lineup. Let's try and get a sweep but if they lose, so be it.

    Everything to gain and nothing to lose, except a game in the standings.
    This is the ol Left Hander rounding third and heading for home.

    I have set in wheelchair accessible...if they don't sell them at some point, they are allowed to be bought by the general public.


    Bring home a win, I have to go school shopping with the kids.

    The first pick of the 2022 amateur draft went 3-3 with a walk from the lead-off position yesturday. His OBP is .780...crazy for a travel team. He pitched 5 innings and gave up 3 runs with NO WALKS...again crazy for 9u...Mustangs win..
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    I have a good feeling about Homer today. Hopefully I'm right.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Me too. I think he steps up big time. And I think A.J. unravels.

    I think the Pirates have a decent chance today, the Reds without Votto, Phillips, Rolen. Scott has been a hot batter and plays that stellar defense, Reds could miss him.

    Still, if Homer does well, I'm confident the Reds will win. Cairo had a big night last night and maybe he'll be on a little roll and get a key hit or two.

    Go Reds.

    Didn't that happen to start the game the day after The Brawl?
