Very happy for Peraza. Brutal start but he has really turned it around. He’s been a big part of this run and will be a big part of the future. Bell has the offense rolling, no need to question it.

The 1969 Reds were 89-73, finishing in 3rd place in the NL West, 4 games behind the Braves. The Reds were managed by Dave Bristol. (Nine of the 12 clubs in the National League finished at .500 or better in 1969. The expansion Padres and Expos finished with identical 52-110 records, and the Phillies were 63-99.)

On August 11, 1969, the Reds defeated the Phillies, 4-3 at Crosley Field. The Reds' lineup for that game:

Pete Rose rf
Jimmy Stewart cf
Alex Johnson lf
Tony Perez 3b
Lee May 1b
Johnny Bench c
Woody Woodward ss
Chico Ruiz 2b

Big Klu
08-11-2019, 01:21 PM
OK, my critique of the 1969 unforms:

Caps: Outstanding! These are the classic all-red caps that most of us grew up with in the 70's, 80's, and early 90's.

Jerseys: Outstanding! The 1969 jerseys are simply button-up versions of the classic BRM uniform. The classic font block numbers and the large font for the names on the back are exactly as they should be.

Pants: Outstanding! With the minimalist style of this uniform and all of the white that it shows, it is important that the pants are worn at the proper height to show the color of the stockings.

Socks: Very good! Plenty of red showing. Some players need stirrups instead of solid red socks. Some players need a tutorial on proper stirrup height. (Also, black shoes would also be an improvement!)

Overall: I liked the 1956, 1961, and 1967's, but these are definitely my favorite throwbacks so far! They now look like the Reds!

On one of the earlier Throwback days, several of us had a discussion about how it would be great for the Reds to have a timeless classic uniform so that they would never have to remodel their look (like the Yankees, Dodgers, Red Sox, Tigers, Cardinals, and Cubs).

I get the tough ďno excusesĒ schtick but is a good umpired game too much to ask for?

This isnít at you kal I just happened to quote and use yours.

Angel is gonna give it both ways and the big part of this thread is tiring into built in excuses. The very first pitch of the game was laid right on the edge just touching......if Angel calls that on the Reds it looks like weíll be complaining a lot.

I fully get the difference between 0-1 and 1-0. Mhs95 knows where the next pitch is going, you knew where it was going and I knew where it was going....is it too much to ask a professional baseball player what the pitcher is likely to do after getting a call in a spot?

Angelís gonna have a big zone on a Sunday afternoon to end the series. Iíll take him over Lazz and several others. He is not a very good ump. Both teams will have to battle with him some.

No offense either man. I want everyone to enjoy the game. The ump often gives an easy reason to yell.

As for the bad 0-1 call Iím wanting the batter to understand that the pitcher is likely to either throw it exactly there again, or even a bit lower to tease. I donít want my hitters swinging at an 0-1 pitch unless they know itís in the zone where they are looking.....If itís 0-2 then yeah, try to foul that baby off.

Thatís my thoughts on it. Never protect until 2 strikes for me.

It was 3 inches inside. Batters shouldn't have to compensate for India umpires. Their job.is to swing at strikes. It's the ump's job to call it properly. Votto did his job. Angel didn't do his, as usual

No, it wasn't close at all.

After the Strike One to Aristedes in the 1st and the called strike to Votto in the 5th, viewed only by mlb.com graphics to Votto, but live on mlbtv on Aristedes, I had to get online to see what everyone here was saying. Mlb.com had Votto's so far inside (as far low as Aristedes') that I was hoping he wouldn't get tossed because he has a legitimate gripe. An ump shouldn't be allowed to get away with this. Hope the hometown fans behind the dugout are giving him hell.

Not winning me over. He just says too much stupid stuff.

I want the 1969 uniforms to become permanent, but I want a matched set -- with the '69 road grays as well.

I would approve of the sleeveless 1957 home whites and the sleeveless 1961 road grays (with a wishbone-C on the cap) for Sunday alternates, though.
