    The ump behind the plate must have a hot date to get to.

    Game day had it much closer than I thought it was. Missed regardless.

    Catcher stole the strike. Caught it low, quickly lifted the glove. Ump went for it.

    I've not seen so many bleeders roll throw the Cubs infield in the last week.

    Game day had it in the zone. The crime was letting Valdez hit for himself when you have 3 outs left.

    Ridiculous call. BP with a single.
    2014 Reds record: 1-2

    I look like a banker in this...
