Sorry for the delay. Chad must be busy.

The Reds look to capture the series against Oakland today. In order to do so, we’ll have to take down the near unhittable Dan Haren.

A simple Reds fan from a simple town. I have been a Reds fan all my life. The 1990 team was crowned Champions during my prime youth years and I grew up idolizing Chris Sabo all the way down to the flat top hair style and the #17. I have passed that love of the Reds down to my three boys who love the game and the Reds just as much as I do! Follow me on twitter @CoachWilson17

    I think Haren is due to come back to earth. His peripherals are similar to last year except a much lower hit rate. It’s low enough he can’t possibly sustain it, though Oakland does field a very good defense.

    Hopefully the Reds can be the team that starts to burst the bubble.

    Hopefully they won’t trade Dunn, but if they do at least his value is on the rise.

    Reds just made my comment (#2) look prophetic. Thanks Dunn, Encar and Hamilton!

  5. ChicagoRedsFan

    Dunn has 6 homers in the last 6 games.

  6. Eric

    It’s a shame Dunn won’t save his home runs for when someone is on base.

    Please tell me this was an attempt at sarcasm.

    But in case it isn’t, I think it was Chris who posted a couple of weeks back the percentages of career solo HRs hit by some of the members of the 500 Club. Guys like F Robby, Willie and a few others. Turns out that solo HRs accounted for between 56% and 60% of their totals (Killebrew was the outlier at 63%). Dunn’s career percentage is ~57%, so he’s in very good company.

    But don’t let facts get in the way of a good rip.

    yes, sarcasm provided free of charge.

    Doesn’t sound like Hopper is doing the “little things” too well today.

    Unfortunately, he’s really being exposed with extended playing time.

  10. Chris

    Brantley clamoring for more breaking balls….as Cout bounces one away from Ross. Funny.

  11. Chris

    Hey, whaddya know – we do have a pitching coach, after all.

  12. Tom

    Yay….. Castro just pinch hit for Hamilton…. Narron for MOY… F&^#$%G Dolt….

    Sorry, Eric, it’s getting hard to tell the serious Dunn bashers from those taking a rip at the serious Dunn bashers.

    With the exception of Weathers, I can’t think of a single relief pitcher on this roster, that I’d invite to spring training next year.
