I’m posting this game thread early in the day (I’ll set it to publish to the front page at 8:00 pm) because I’m on the road, though I expect to be home in plenty of time to watch this one. The family and I are in Charlottesville, VA, at a major college football game.*
The ol’ Redlegs pulled one out last night in extra innings, thanks largely to a five-run 8th inning…and no thanks at all to Mike Stanton, who has been a complete disaster this year. I kept expecting him to get better, but it has never happened. Glad he has a two-year contract!
Tonight, Bronson Arroyo takes the mound for the Reds. Let’s hope for a third straight win against the Giants. Discuss it here.
*Again, a disclaimer: I confess that, given the state of the program, any game involving the University of Virginia can’t reasonably be called a major college football game. I can pretend otherwise, though. It is my alma mater, after all.
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
Chad launched Redleg Nation in February 2005, and has been writing about the Reds ever since. His first book, “The Big 50: The Men and Moments That Made the Cincinnati Reds” is now available in bookstores and online, at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and wherever fine books are sold. You can also find Chad’s musings about the Cincinnati Reds in the pages of Cincinnati Magazine.
