"No matter how good you are, you're going to lose one-third of your games. No matter how bad you are you're going to win one-third of your games. It's the other third that makes the difference." ~Tommy Lasorda
Huge for Jay.....wow.
Pitching and defense keeps putting them in position to win. Love it.
Baseball is like church. Many attend, few understand
Cards quietly doing what the cardinals do. Pirates doing what they do. Just keep winning Reds....
End of the pirates game was just pathetic. like, 5 fans and a shower of boos.
Is it just me, or does every game George Grande announce end up in a walkoff home run?
Yeah. I always wonder if these hitters read the scouting reports on THEMSELVES. Bruce has always tried to pull everything.
I loved seeing him go with the pitch and take it to LF. He's strong enough to hit it hard the opposite way too.
As for scouting report. I actually see them pitch him inside more than outside. That off speed pitch just inside always seems to strike him out.

Being 4-0 while at Myrtle Beach, I'm thinking of staying and seeing what happens. Of course my staff would revolt and I wouldn't get any paychecks, but...
Reds up by 6 on the Bucs and 7 over the Cards.

Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman. Damn glad to meet ya.
The game thread reminds me of Brantley a few years ago when he said Edwin wasn't clutch. Then Edwin hit a walk off home run
