    Cubs at Reds (6/21 - 6/24)

    Reds come off a sweep of the Tigers and the Cubs are coming in for a four game series.

    Personally, I need the games to stay dry, could be a solid stretch for me if we can avoid some rain.

    @Reds

    The #Reds today placed OF Scott Schebler on the bereavement list, recalled from Triple-A Louisville OF Phillip Ervin, optioned to Louisville LHP Wandy Peralta, selected from Louisville the contract of LHP Kyle Crockett (#51) and released C Tony Cruz.

    Not sure what makes me happier, that Winker hit that Grand Slam, or that he did it against the Cubs.

    Reds win game one behind good pitching from Harvey and a Grand Slam from Winker.

    Harvey certainly fixed his velocity issues. Hopefully we can get something decent for him soon.

    Winker almost hit the Toyota sign again.

    Buddy who is a huge Cubs fan sends me a text last night asking what happened to the grass on the field. I told him about the concert that was there last weekend. I told him I was there Tuesday night and never noticed it from my view from the diamond seats.
    I’ve been traveling so I still haven’t seen the damage.

    I was wondering about the grass myself. Now it makes sense.

    The damage is extremely evident from the upper deck.

    The company that was supposed to pick up the flooring the used for the concert didn't have enough guys to take care of it Sat night and/or Sunday, so it didn't happen until Monday. Apparently they've been watering it like crazy.

    You could feel all of the air deflate out of 3rd base line, where I was working. Sort of awesome haha!

    Votto just struck out with the bases loaded and he never swung at a pitch. I just don't understand him. All of the pitches were border line and he never swung at any. Very passive instead of aggressive.

    Long ball continues to be a problem for Castillo.
