Please tell me someone else heard George say "Well, Soriano got wood" on that last out.
I swear Frazier's voice sounds familiar, but I can't think of who it reminds me of.
"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."
Oh dear god, a George Grande and Jeff Brantley announce duo.
Lol. Hey at least it isn't Brantley on the radio. I seldom have to listen to the radio broadcast, but he is clearly the worst play by play announcer I have ever listened to. Our local guys do high school basketball better than he describes a ball game. Its a travesty. I never know if something good or bad has just happened. At least on TV, you can see the play, on radio, you're dependent on a Forrest Gump call of each play.
2nd pitch right after a dinger, fastball right in the ribs. I'm sure it's possible it was just a bad pitch...but if it was, that's some pretty crummy timing for it.
The thing I'm wanting to go back and look at is whether or not Ludwick did anything to show up Wood on his HR trot or something. Anybody notice anything out of the ordinary?
~edit~ Just went back and re-looked at it, I sure didn't see anything "hot dog'ish" about anything. Either just a bad pitch, or an intentional plunking. Regardless of which it was, the Reds responded EXACTLY they way they should. On the scoreboard.
Ludwick is a Scott Rolen disciple. His home run trot is quick-paced and done in a way so as to not show up the pitcher.
