Here’s a game thread to discuss the game. I’m already concerned, however. Paul Wilson has thrown five pitches, and he’s hit a batter, and given up a homer and a single.

Not a good start.

    Eight batters, seven runs, and Wilson is headed for the showers without retiring a single batter.

    This team is sinking like nothing I’ve seen before.

    BTW the Record for runs vs the Reds in the 1st inning is held by the Dodgers (14) vs the Reds in 1952, two years later they AGAIN scored 12 against the Reds in the 1st after TWO outs.

    The Reds scored 14 against the Astros in the first inning in August of 1989.

    I quit. In the words of that immortal sailor, “I’ve stood alls I can stands, and I can’t stands no more.” I can’t follow this team anymore.

    Chris, if you quit – are you looking for some lovely paring gifts?

    If you want to quit on this franchise, you would have done it a long time ago.

    Hey, three winners in the Kroger – Big Payoff inning tonight – then a comment of Ashley Brennaman’s graduation with a side bar quote of “Lord knows when I’m coming to work tomorrow” by Marty. He’s got to be thinking 1982 all over again.

    Oh well..at this rate we’ll be seeing a 5-4-3 DP turned by Encarnacion, Bergolla, & Dunn sooner than later. Hope no one was banking on those Louisville Bats International League Playoff tickets….

    This might be worthwhile if it gets Casey, Graves, and Milton/Wilson out of town. But I doubt it – the only rumor I hear is that Kearns is headed to the Bronx.

    Boy, that Stone for Valentine move made all the difference in the world.
