Maybe let Garcia leave today on a high note. Let it sink in, end the day on a positive note? The stuff you guys yap about sometimes is legit tiring. Let the plan for his playing time unfold and take a breath. Iím sure this will somehow be the running meme for the game thread if farmer/galvis has a poor game and god forbid they benched a 22 year old that has played 1 game.

Not if the throw pulls the catcher into the 3B baseline, which happens on probably well more than 50% of the time, because the throwers bias it that way, thinking that missing to the 1st base side of the plate means there is no chance to get the tag.

The Reds and Pirates have out scored the Cards and Brewers 18-4 today.

Hands in the air if you predicted that.

Winker and Castellanos were huge today. Feels like the kinda day that can turn your season around.

Sweep! One hit shutout and only a solo home run allowed in 14 innings. Good job Reds moving on from that ugly loss on Tuesday.

Huge day. So many encouraging signs all around. Wish Shogo coulda got a knock or three, but so many good at bats up and down the lineup.

A lot of encouraging signs from this team today heading into a huge weekend series. Like someone else said, sometimes having Votto outta there causes the other guys to step up.
2nd doubleheader sweep with Votto playing neither game. Just an observation.

Maybe this will be the day they turn it around.

Cubs over the weekend. At least none of the Wrigley South crap. Have I ever mentioned how much I dislike Cubs’ fans?

Was that last year or the year before when the Reds swept a 4 game series against the Cubs in GAP? It was so satisfying sending all the band-wagon cubby fans home losers after spending tons of their $ in Cincy.

Double header sweep on Aug 2nd preceded at 5-6 run from then until the 4 day covid break. Maybe this time!

I forget exactly how the discussion went, but there were a few posters suggesting we should market Miley or Disco or whoever at the deadline, and then plan on taking one of our relievers (Iggy/Stephenson, I believe) and putting them back into the rotation next year, because at some point in the past, they used to be starters.

I'm not necessary sanguine on giving away a starter without some solid return (and I don't really think Miley or Disco gets you that, now), but if we ARE looking at promoting somebody to the rotation next year, I hereby propose that Lucas Sims be that guy: this is basically his 2nd year pitching out of the bullpen (177 starts in 230 pro appearances over 8 seasons), is in his age-26 season, and clearly seems to have turned some kind of corner this year.

Have you ever noticed how quiet it gets around here when the Reds win? :beerme:

The Reds should just protest a game a series so they can consistently get doubleheaders.

Don't get too down when you lose, don't get too up when you win, and fire Dick Williams.

I fell asleep about an hour and a half into game one....which is annoying but it was midnight here.

Reds only two games out of a playoff spot (2nd place in the division). If the playoffs started now, the Marlins would be in.
