Page 12 of Big Series, maybe the biggest of the year. If the Reds are going to truly be in it, this weekend is the time to make the move. The Reds come in 4 games... 174 comments | 3154 Views | Go to page 1 →

    Reds lose 6-3 to get a split with the Cubs. The person Reds kick off their road trip tomorrow night in Washington.

You don't let your starting pitcher lose a game after pitching that well. Once he is facing the go ahead run late in the game with 100 pitches, you bring someone else in. Managers have done it that way my entire life of watching MLB.
    Wrong.

    I'm not upset by a split but man three would have been nice. Gotta get two from Washington.

    I say it with everyone weekend home series against the Cubs, but dear God do I love when the Cubs come to town.

    Set personal records on water sales on Saturday and then topped it on Sunday last time they were here. This time on Saturday, I set a personal best record for beers sales in a regular season game (excluding Opening Days) and a personal best in peanuts sales.

    It was a good weekend to be a beer vendor, would have been just a touch better if they took 3.

    Saw a statistic that said that Joey Votto has been called on out strikes with the third strike being out of the strike zone the most in baseball this year (18 times).

    While at some point you have to take it out of the umpire's hands, but batters should not be required to swing at pitches out of the strike zone.

    Who's up against the Nationals fellas? I could give it a go but I had a couple starts in the last two weeks and wasn't sure if we should save my arm for another series.
