2012 Reds / Game Thread

Game Thread: Reds vs. Brewers (2012.09.25)

Nine games remaining in the season, and tonight is the first of the final three regular season games at Great American Ballpark. Fortunately, there will be some home playoff games in a couple of weeks, so never fear.

Anyway, the Reds are still competing to be the number one seed in the National League’s playoff structure, so these games do carry some importance.

Discuss the game here. Go Redlegs.

  1. Man, it’s good to see Votto more than single. I look at the next week and a half as an extended batting clinic. For EVERYONE in the lineup. Even SuperTodd.

  2. Frazier cold since late August, but Stubbs has been cold since late June. Would like both to get hot for playoffs.

    • @Mwv: It’s rode, like a horse.

      Speaking of “rode” and “horse” Its to bad Front Row Amy doesn’t travel with the Brewers.

        Oh man, that really made me laugh.

  3. After 6 complete its 4-1 Reds. Between Cueto and the bullpen, no reason that lead shouldn’t hold up.

  4. Why am I hearing so much about how Arroyo will pitch at AT&T park? After today, it looks like the Reds and Nats are going to be tied. The Reds have to be the favorite to win the #1 seed now, given the schedules of both teams.

    If they are the #1 seed, it could be great or terrible. If Medlen pitches the play-in game and Braves win, I like the Reds chances. If the Cards win that game, I really am not going to be a happy camper.

    I’d just prefer the #2 seed, all things considered.

      As fans we got to get out of this mentality, they need the #1 seed and they will win the first round no matter what. All other issues are intangibles that do not matter to winners and anyone would be nuts to say having the home field advantage in the NLCS is not important.

    • I love Jim Day’s campaign to get the woo to end.

      Yes please, end the wooo. Too annoying. Embarassing on national TV, which all the playoffs will be on. If it was limited to the 8th and/or 9th innings that would be one thing. But those random wooos in the 3rd or 4th inning are nonsense. Wooo in the 8th inning and stand, cheer and clap loudly for Chapman in the 9th.

  5. Besides the win the best thing about this game is the way Cueto pitched. Cueto’s gonna be just fine. Lets get em again tomorrow. Go Reds! Adios Amigos.
