    There were a few more threads too. There were a LOT of threads started his last two years in ML, kinda like Cruz this year. The hype was intense

    There was no social media back then just a few stories now and then about the great young catcher the Reds had playing at AAA Indianapolis.

    I've been excited about all of Bruce, Dunn, Kearns, and the return of Pete Rose as player manager.

    I'm every bit as excited for Electric Elly.
    I wish him all the luck in the world and really hope he does well and is successful.

    There are fickle fans around just waiting to nail him to a cross if he gets off to a slow start.

    So how many others keep refreshing the game thread because you can’t wait to see tonight’s lineup? Asking for a friend.

    Haven’t been this excited since the Phil Ervin and Aristides Aquino call ups.

    Many never forgave him for not being Larry Walker.
    “I don’t care,” Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. “He’s in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.”

    I understand the MLB ticket site crashed for a while with people trying to buy tickets to the game tonight. The Reds better be prepared for this. They may have to open up some concession stands in the upper level. I am guessing they will at least double the attendance they would have normally got tonight. It's a good thing it will be a 7:10 start so people can actually get to the start of the game. It'll be like a mini Opening Day only without all the pomp and circumstance.

    Oh, hey there. Reds coming to Camden Yards end of month. Looks like I will be going to see Elly and McLain and Steer for three games in person and, if I catch a break, Abbott and/or Greene in that series.
    Well, that's what those words mean. He was here. If they don't keep him, he will have been lost/subtracted. I headed out the door today with two shoes on my feet. If I don't return with them, I have lost them. If I do return with them, I haven't added them. ---M2

    In Reds history, they’ve only signed and developed four position players from the Dominican Republic to the big leagues. Elly De La Cruz will soon be the fifth.
    1B Arturo DeFreites (1978-79)
    3B Juan Francisco (2009-11)
    OF Denis Phipps (2012)
    OF Aristides Aquino (2018-22)
    Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman. Damn glad to meet ya.

    In spring training 1965, Ted Williams autographed a baseball for Johnny Bench: “To a future Hall-of-Famer for sure.”

    Thank you. I was wondering who they were. No one that made a big impact. Lets hope DeLaCruz does.

    Hopefully Elly has what it takes to join these hallowed ranks.
