About The Author

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.

    Can they bring up Keppinger, already? Seems like he is highlighted on this everyday. What else does the guy need to do?

    I know, I know…Castro is signed through the end of the Bush administration…

    Castro is signed through…

    Ha ha – can’t wait for both to be ended. I knew Keppinger was doing reasonably well, but at this moment you’d have to say that he’s having a slightly better (luckier) year than Votto, and he’s no slouch.

    Aaron Herr has cooled off since his hot May.

    That was quite the game in Chattanooga, with a bottom of the ninth comeback completed by one of those Jay Bruce doubles off the wall.

    Is there any word on when Bray might be with the big club? I really like his stuff and think he needs all the experience in the majors that he can get.

  4. Chad

    Klinker’s looking awfully good so far. Wonder if they’ll give him a start? That was his longest outing yet.

    I’ll have to ask.

    I heard pre-game on Sunday as I was walking through the ball park. They commented that Keppinger is batting .400 and has an OBP of .500 when batting lead off this year.
