Game Thread: Stupid Cubs at Reds (2013.04.22)

The Reds host the Cubs tonight and I can not help but remember this little rant….

Marty Rips Cubs Fans

My favorite line from that is “… at the end of the day, THEY are still the CHICAGO CUBS!”  There is nothing better than watching Reds baseball and bashing the Chicago Cubs.  Discuss the game and bash the Cubs here.  Go Reds!

  1. Thank goodness Mesoraco isn’t batting 7th. Wouldn’t want to miss the chance to see Izturis win it.

  2. Worst bullpen in baseball and we can’t manufacture a run. It’s official–the Reds offense is diagnosed with severe bipolar disorder

  3. I think a four game series against the Fish, followed up by a three game stand against the Cubbies, puts your team back into Spring Training mode, or something.

  4. We may be okay, so long as the situation doesn’t call for Hoover to be yanked for Manny Parra tonight.

  5. Extra innings with the Marlins and now the Cubs. What does it say about the kind of year the Reds are going to have? The answer is zero. But that doesn’t mean we can’t be frustrated with our beloved Reds losing to or having to go extra innings to beat such lousy teams. Tis better to vent then have your blood pressure rise to dangerous levels.

  6. Marty is turning against Phillips now? If that’s true, he’s really a piece of work. I mean, one should focus criticism on Phillips, Bruce, and Votto—what’s really wrong with the team.

    • @Hank Aarons Teammate: He was making passing comments about his lack of putting the ball in play, that he’s been in a bit of a funk… which was only expectable given the other planet he was living on for awhile. Nowhere near his normal disdain for Bruce… just basic Marty snark.

  7. I’m more worried about this game having a long-term adverse effect on the bullpen than I am about losing the game.

      Why? nobody has been used that much out of the ordinary. That’s a Dusty Baker like statement. Let’s go ahead and lose today because I’m worried about what might happen the next three days. Well, hope your happy Simon just took care of it for you.

  8. Alright, I’ve had it with the woos. It’s amateurish, and the players must find it so annoying.

      It was a little out of control last inning.

    • Frazier is SO over this game.

      My thoughts exactly. This team doesn’t seem to be as hungry as they should be.

  9. That was smart managing. Had to figure the Reds were still looking bunt and it was a 2-0 count so Simon would probably groove a fastball.
