I know Darvish can rack some K's up for sure.


But this has been a theme for an entire season. First inning or bust. So many shutouts. So many pitchers having their game of the year against this offense.


They've gotta do something this winter. And I'm fully hoping they bust back out next inning and make me look stupid. That'd be great, lol.

just Google his name and steroids, and it is pretty clear that many assume he was using. I think he even tested positive in some of those leaked test results. If you look at his career stats, it is exhibit A in something changed in 1996 at the age of 35 and his 4th year in Colorado. He basically is a 20 HR guy, then goes to Colorado and gets the 10 HR bump for a few years to a 30 HR guy.....then in 1996 he is nearly a 50 HR guy.

That hurt the Cubs


Love playing spoiler against The Cubs. If The Reds can't make it, let's at least take them down with us.


I'll always remember Austin Kearns single handedly killing their post season hopes back in the day and Chip Caray's line of "AUSTIN KEARNS IS DARTH VADER IN BASEBALL CLEATS!!!".

Man oh man that was great

Silly me, I was watching the ESPN feed wondering what the obsession was with Thom Brennaman.I'm on vacation in S.C. and the cable goes out so I go out on the patio to listen to Marty on MLB AtBat. Apparently, cable service was restored and I picked up the game on ESPN. The announcers praised the Cubs, Middletown, and went overboard on Darvish. They were as bad as Thom on those three and more. Rooting for the Cubs was unbearable. But, the Reds won.

My 3 hour recording of the game cut off in the 7th inning thanks to the human rain delay that is Yu Darvish. Dude was taking almost 30 seconds a pitch in that game, which is like 10 seconds longer than the proposed pitch clock.

Another beatdown of the Cubbies would be pleasant.
