The Texas Rangers come to town tonight, and they’ll be greeted by the smiling face of Matt Belisle on the pitching mound. After such a promising start to the interleague schedule, the Reds have dropped two in a row and things feel back to normal now.

Vicente Padilla will pitch for the Rangers. Feel free to discuss it here, and all “Walker, Texas Ranger” references are encouraged. References to the now-demoted Gary Majewski are discouraged, unless they are funny.

Blame Chad for creating this mess.

  1. I’m shocked that Nicole Ritchey and Britney Spears haven’t made visits yet. That conversation might drop everyone’s IQ by a few points.

  2. bottom of the 9th….Donkey EE and Joey.

  3. So far so good for MacBeth! Things are looking promising for him…

  4. Fangraphs gives the Reds approximately a 21% chance at winning this game, at this moment going into the bottom of the ninth down 7-6.

  5. Gagne is almost as ugly as Casey Blake.

  6. Have to swing at those Donkey

  7. It would b e interesting to see a diagram of pitch location on Dunn hits.

  8. Hack hack Hack

  9. Poop!!!

  10. So close!!! so far away. Disgust

  11. For the love of nuts. The Reds now have a worse record than both the Royals and the Nationals. Terrible.

  12. We just lost the the team with the worst record in baseball, which makes us…..?

  13. At least the Yankees lost

  14. Can’t blame the bullpen unless, of course, Jerry hesitated going to them because he has no faith in them. But then we can just blame Jerry.

  15. Tasty. Worst record in baseball…booo

  16. Speaking earlier of Blake, he extended his hitting streak to 24 games tonight. Just 33 more to break Dimaggio’s record. Be sure to do it the same day Bonds breaks Aaron’s mark.

  17. Still ½ game ahead of the Rangers recordwise, by my count.

  18. He is not the one throwing nor signing them.

  19. A homestand that started so promising.

  20. He’s the one not getting the best out of them.

  21. at least former Ranger draft pick Aaron Harang goes tomorrow.

  22. On the supposed Dunn trade proposal to the Angels – The Reds were asking for a starting pitcher and a starting 2B. Does this mean they aren’t happy with Phillips?
