2013 Reds / Game Thread

Game Thread: Diamondbacks at Reds (2013.08.22)

The Reds will look to go for the series win in today’s matinee tilt against Arizona.  The Reds will send their ace Mat Latos to the mound to try and extend the lead in the Wild Card race and try to trim a half game off the deficit in the division before the Cardinals and Pirates even take to the field.  It sure would be nice to have a win under our belt by 4 PM and be able to sit back and cheer for the Braves and Giants wouldn’t it?

But before we can cheer for those two teams to beat our division mates, we must first cheer on our beloved Redlegs.  And to do so today means getting creative at work.  For me, that requires loading up MLB.tv, rotating my computer monitor away from the door, turning the volume down low, and ignoring my job duties.  If I get caught, then, I guess I’ll tell my boss to shove it.  The Reds are in a playoff chase and they need my support!!

Go Reds!

  1. I haven’t felt this good about the Reds since May. Huge 3 out of 4 series against a good team playing for their lives.

    Go Reds!!!!!!

    • @homerandbruce: We just need to be prepared for some of the backups to play Sunday. Day game after a night game, against a weak opponent, before heading out on the road to play our closest playoff competitor (and enemy #1).

      Sure, we can hope that Izturis doesn’t bat #2, but we should be able to accept the JV roster as a group otherwise.
