Reds RHP Ramon Ortiz had soreness in his groin Sunday, a day after he threw off a mound, and was placed on the 15-day disabled list. RHP Matt Belisle will pitch against the Cubs on Monday. The Reds didn’t immediately fill the roster spot.
I’ve been a Reds fan since the late ’60’s, with my luck of being able to attend plenty of games at Riverfront during the BRM era. I was sitting in the Green Seats in the OF when Pete came home in ’84 and was in the Red seats when Glenn Braggs reached over the fence in ’90 to beat the Pirates. I have had many favorites from Jim Maloney to Johnny Bench, Barry Larkin, Adam Dunn, and Jay Bruce.
