    Pirates at Reds (7/29 - 7/31)

    Reds have a three game lead for 4th place in the division heading into the series against the Pirates.

    Tonight we have Gray on the mound (5-6, 3.29 ERA) vs. McRae (0-2, 7.71 ERA).

    Per Lance McAlister on Twitter:
    #Reds showing 5th largest attendance increase in MLB from a year ago today. Up 2,575 per game. MLB average is -495 per game. 11 teams down over 1,000 per game.

    I think that increase is going to take a bit of a hit tonight and tomorrow. Projected 16K tonight.

    A bad Pirates team started a replacement pitcher who was shelled, and then relieved by some sacrificial offering who continued the trend

    There have been multiple walks, poor fielding/throwing by the Pirates and stupid baserunning.

    An embarrassment. Refunds should be immediately available.

    You try to get excited about Peralta when he gets a few people out then he just gets you unexcited the next time he comes in, just won’t let you!!

    So wait, it's the other team that's an embarrassment? Hallelujah! At first I thought Puig missed the cutoff man, Winker got thrown out by 25 feet trying to stretch a single to a double, and Votto boots an easy ground ball that leads to 3 runs scoring. And that'd be just the first two innings. Man, you had me going there.

    Reds are the kings of sad baseball tonight with an 11-6 win. Hopefully more embarrassing play tomorrow leads to another Reds win.

    Just a sad state of what we have come to accept as "Major League Baseball."

    It's just too diluted, 2 maybe 4 too many teams.

    Reds fans seemed to be enjoying themselves quite a bit. Doubt any would think to ask for one tonight.

    Puig sure is cold right now and his frustrating was showing last night.

    Speaking of Puig, can anyone explain to me how this extra pick works if the Reds decide not to trade him, then offer him a deal that he doesn't take? I'm a little confused how that works.

    I knew Dietrich hasn't done much since his 3 HR game, but I just read this:

    Dietirch is now 16 for 100 since that 3-HR game vs Pirates on May 28. 2 HR, 8 RBI, 14 HBP. #Reds

    Woof.
