Matt Belisle vs. Sergio Mitre tonight at the Fish Palace as the Reds begin a weekend four-game series with the Marlins.

The comeback is on, by the way. The Reds are still in last place in the National League Central, but now they are tied with the Astros for last. Plus, they’re just a half-game out of fourth place in the Central.

Milwaukee and Chicago can begin sweating. The Little Red Machine is coming to get them.

The madness continues tonight. Discuss it here.

  1. Nah, he can still put men on base as well as anyone.

  2. Ricky Stone warming up now.

  3. Take the door and slam it in their face, Todd!

  4. Brantley: “You cannot pitch, with your right hand, if that right hand, is around your throat.” What? Marty: “Absolutely right. It’s a physiological impossibility.” Zuh?

  5. How long has the current GM been on the job in Florida?

  6. My guess is Brantley is saying Coffey chokes in pressure situations.

  7. Should have kept the right hand around his throat on that bunt.

  8. Larry Beinfest has been Marlins GM since 2002.

  9. Thanks, DA.

    I wish the Reds had some of the prospects he has come up with.

    Coffey removes right hand with a strikeout.

  10. Clutch! An eighth inning by the Reds bullpen passes by scoreless!

  11. Now Weathers warming in the bullpen.

    7-5 Final! I believe you’re right, that ties the longest winning streak of the season.
