Matt Belisle vs. Oliver Perez tonight as the Reds seek to beat the Metropolitans and end a four-game losing streak. Seems like Oliver Perez has had some success against the Reds, but my memory may be tainted since I saw Perez toss a one-hitter at Cincinnati a couple of years ago when he was still with Pittsburgh.

Discuss the game here…will it be Joey Votto’s major league debut? I agree with Jeff; they need to let Votto play every day.

    I hope Eric Milton signs with a NL team next year so we can see if Norris Hopper can even homer off of him.

  2. Y-City Jim

    In scientific terms I would characterize a Hopper versus Milton matchup as a stoppable force meets a movable object.

    That is a beautiful statement, Jim.

    Don’t call it a comeback – 8-6 now. Single, single, single.

    How do you spell frustrating? REDS.

  5. Y-City Jim

    Gonzo unselfishing walks in order to allow Ross the opportunity to make the third out.

  6. Y-City Jim

    But Mackanin robs hims of the chance by pinch hitting LLM.

  7. Jimmy James

    First and third with no outs. I didn’t miss him that much.

  8. Y-City Jim

    Has LaDuca ever had a 2 HR night before?

    This bullpen is one beat puppy.

  9. Y-City Jim

    If Mackanin ever had s shot of being this team’s manager it is rapidly disappearing.

    Can Tom Shearn give the Reds a half decent performance tomorrow?
