Tigers at Reds (6/19 - 6/20)

Page 2 of Number I saw on Saturday said that they were projected to have 28,000 at GABP tonight, which I was a little surprised by. Be nice to get the mini sweep... 34 comments | 17504 Views | Go to page 1 →

    Had diamond seats so got there really early. Buddy said it was a bobble head night. Nothing when we got in. Attendance was claimed to be 31k plus. No way.

    Yeah, that's nuts.

    I heard a woman bought 55 tickets at $20-25 a piece and will be selling all of them for roughly $40-50.

    You had to have purchased a special ticket to receive the bobblehead. Wasn't a normal bobblehead night.

    They were a lot closer to 31K than I thought they'd be. That number couldn't have been far off.

    By the way the national anthem was outstanding. We were still inside when the gal sang it. The place went dead silent. The video crew had some great shots of fans, military folks on hand, first responders and the flag. Very moving. Than the bald eagle was released from the cage and flew onto the field.

    I always enjoyed when Sam, the bald eagle, makes an appearance. He usually does 4-5 times a year.

    Agreed, I'm not sure why Senzel isn't getting action in the OF.

    No room for him in the outfield in Louisville right now.

    Scooter or Senzel, one of them is trade bait very soon.

    I heard this nugget on the Baseball Tonight Podcast: Since breaking into the big leagues, among players with at least 1500 plate appearances Billy Hamilton is dead last in runs produced.

    Is it time to use him almost exclusively as a late inning pinch runner/defensive replacement?

    FYI the Tigers are huge. They dwarfed the Reds.

    It’s passed that time.

    Yes, and I think/hope Hamilton will get traded as we approach the deadline. I do think he has some value to a contender as a pinch runner & defensive replacement, particularly teams with larger outfields.
