The Reds are on the radio! Funny thing, I can't even remember last year's record.

I am listening on this link, if anyone needs a hand following the game. https://radiostationusa.fm/online/700-wlw

Back-to-back hits to lead things off. First and third, no outs. Wild pitch. 1-0 Cleveland. Another hit. Runners on the corners.

Only a little over three months away from Barrero being a full year out from hamate surgery. THEN we can fairly judge him.

Maile and Benson making a good first impression, so far.

With speed playing a bigger role this season, maybe signing Maile wasn’t such a stupid move after all.

That was a pretty weak attempt at a joke. It's spring training. I haven't warmed up yet

Sims is one of those guys that, while he perpetually struggles for the Reds, if the Reds were to cut him, he would go elsewhere and become a lockdown reliever.

The pitch clock occasionally pops up in the bottom right side of the screen. Wonder if they'll continue doing that during the season.

In some of the spring training stadiums, there is a pitch clock behind the plate, just off to the side, that the pitcher and viewers at home can see. I am guessing that will be the case in all MLB stadiums.

NebraskaRed
02-25-2023, 05:33 PM
Spring training and all, but that game was 2 hours and 20 some minutes.

It was nice to watch some baseball again. My biggest takeaways are this team looks more athletic and less like your Thursday night beer league team of the last few years. And I thought Benson at least looked the part that you give a nice long look to this year.

I also remain bullish on McLain and hope he forces his way onto the roster like India did in '21.

I’m not sold on McLain because of his disappointing minor league numbers, but would be nice if he is what Senzel was supposed to be.

The multiple stolen bases (including stealing home) were definitely not something we've seen the past few years.

Not sold yet but .816 in AA. He could be India 2.0. Speed, a little pop, lots of aggression. Hes 23 with good college baseball development. Would not surprise me if he makes the jump this year

I like how at the end of the clip the announcers are saying watch that again but there is no replay, however with looping it seems like there is. Really nice editing if it was intentional

Only saw the 9th inning. Looked to be the best part. lets hope that isn't the best moment of the 2023season.

I noticed that. I kept expecting the pitcher to throw up a long jump shot to try to beat the clock.

"It was a nice pace. It wasn't rushed but it just kept everything moving."
