    I know what you mean. Suarez missed two straight opportunities for walk-offs. However, Golden Sombrero has a different meaning (striking out 4 times in the same game).

    Oh bummer. Did not know that. I stand corrected. I was thinking the reference was to the two last at-bats of the games.

    Guess no one watched tonight. Reds won 3-2 after a 2 run shot by Galvis.

    Sonny Gray pitched well again.

    Sadly, still no FSO on Dish. I'm resigned to the fact I will not see anymore of this year's team on the tube. Dish is known for playing hardball, so I don't expect anything to happen quickly...especially since FSO has been sold. Hopefully once the deal with Sinclair is finalized, things can get done. But, I think HBO and Cinemax are still not back on Dish...and I understand they've been off since November. So, who knows.

    Sounds like the Dish is broken.

    Didn't realize that today's game was a BMS. Thought I might be seeing a replay of last night's game with the score being 3-1, but then Iglesias goes deep to make it 4-1, so I knew otherwise. Castillo with a 3 run lead heading into the 5th.

    Reds won 4-2, in case anybody wondered. Series win for LRCW. The Reds need to do the same, if not better, against the Pirates.

    Lorenzen was REALLY good again today, outstanding last night, he’s in a pattern right now of either nobody gets on or everybody gets on!!

    Who’s predicting another fight?? Heard it from a good source that MLB gave both teams a stern warning for this weekend.

    And I think Dietrich is due to come off the IL about this time, too. I'll set the line at 2.5 HBP (both teams combined)...are you taking the over or under?
