    By the way....after listening to Keels for the last couple of weeks....having Thom in the booth is like sweet nectar on a hot summer's night.

    What dooo you know- Reds win!

    Bruce not sounding like a 23 year old in the post game. Good stuff.

    If Bruce gets hot this last month of the season the Reds are going to be in good shape. I was hoping for a bat at the deadline he may have been here the whole time.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    It'd be nice to have a team that beats the best, but I'll settle for a team that seems to regularly win the games it should.

    I think you may be right. I was sitting on the third base line in left. Man, his shots looked majestic from there.

    So Dusty's pretty much a genius, I suppose.

    Bruce may have learned how to hit LH pitching tonight!!

    His OPS vs. LH pitching entering the game was about .700, it now stands about .100 points higher (and better than against RH pitching).

    I know not everyone likes Thom, but after listening to Keels for that long, it was great to have him back. The games just seem bigger when he's calling them.

    Not a cheapie in the bunch. All of them were halfway up the mood deck or higher.

    Wasn't he leading the league in no-doubter homers way back when? Add another 3 to his tally.

    Big night for Jay Bruce and Johnny Cueto. That's the kind of performance that is needed the rest of the way if the Reds are going to make the playoffs. Just super as the Reds move back to 20 over .500.

    Of course, the Cardinals won with Pujols and Holliday (miraculous recoveries?) leading the way. We'd better sweep to stay ahead of them. And I think we will.

    I think they're still coming down from the stratosphere. His first shot was above the tunnel in the right field stands, like 20-25 rows up (?). A colossal shot. The second was farther towards center, probably like 5-10 rows up. The last was closer to the line again and almost as long as the first. Truly impressive to watch from my vantage point behind the visitor's dugout. From there it just looks amazing when a lefty gets a hold of a ball like Jay did tonight.

    Great game overall today, not a bad moment from beginning to end. Never seen so many boats on the river to watch a Friday night fireworks show. The game even had fans who were exiting excited enough to honk their horns. Love that atmosphere surrounding the park after a game. The pulse of the riverfront was very strong to say the least.
