I feel a bit more confident about this matchup than yesterday's with Roark vs whatshisface pitching. Let's hope Babyface Luis can keep that great changeup working and with fewer BB's and the lineup can actually hit better than I can at 60 with a bad back, hip and shoulder.. Personally I like the nick, Babyface Louie.. I doubt it'll ever stick though. My wife said he looks like he belongs in 8th grade..
Wow..we really don't have what anyone can legitimately call a legitimate leadoff hitter, hits for avg with good speed..It's been awhile since we did..

This is probably the slowest Reds team I can remember, including the ones where guys like Adam Dunn, Sean Casey and an old Ken Griffey Jr. were lumbering around the bases

I'm not in love with this lineup. I understand Votto is leading off because he gets on base but he's definitely station to station, I'm just not crazy about him batting first. Dietrich is a good ballplayer but I prefer him off the bench and I also think Peraza needs to work out his slump by playing. Schebler is this years Duvall.

What are the odds this game gets postponed? The weather report has rain starting around game time and going on for a few hours. We've got tickets and I don't want to go down to sit out a rain delay.

Slowest Reds team I can ever remember. I started watching in 74. I know most teams don't steal bases anymore. But the Reds hardly ever go first to third on a hit.
I love the stolen base. Maybe Senzel will bring some speed. Though I doubt Bell will allow him to steal much if any.

I'll probably get used to him, but he does have the prototypical radio voice that could be selling soap, insurance, announcing a ball game or telling us the nukes are on the way so take appropriate precautions. "Armed forces radar indicate nuclear missiles will hit your home soon so enjoy the game while you have time.."

Doesn't hardly seem right for a runner to be out stealing when the tag is on the back part of the foot with the back of the glove near the wrist and the ball is insecurely in the tip of the glove and it is questionable that the glove even contacted the foot before the foot hit the back. Declined to challenge because of the weather and the quest to get a legal game in on the last date of the Braves being in town for the season!

I thought the humidity weighed them down in the air?


More water in the air make it less dense. An H2O molecule weighs 18, N2 28, and O2 32. At any temp and pressure there are the same number of molecules in a given volume of air, so the more gaseous water there is, there are less nitrogen and oxygen, therefore the average density is lower the more humid it is.

I don't have the forecast but the radar seems to me that the heaviest rain should be over in 10 minutes or so, and maybe 90 minutes until all the rain stops. Should just call it and let both teams get going to the sites of tomorrow's games.

He MIGHT be the RG if Hart can actually live up to his contract although I have my doubts. I'd prefer they move Glenn to RT and put Williams at left, but we'll see how it plays out. At least they don't have the ketchup bottle virtuoso running things anymore.

I guess, but there is no reason to start a game with more rain on the way. The possible injuries are what I worry about a lot. Hoping for the best. It's funny, but the two sports I care most about depend on weather. Football-play in a snowstorm, but not auto racing and baseball.

The long break came at a good time for both teams. The starters had thrown 93 and 101 pitches, and the one reliever had finished his half inning with 13 pitches and had gotten three outs and stranded his 3 inherited runners. Murphy's law says that the game will get tied and the rains will come again and both teams will have to take an off day out of their schedule to meet for a single day in Cincy later in the season!

Well I see my Suddenlink channel in Marietta that I see the Reds on has reverted to the jewelry channel so my evening of watching the Reds play is over!
