  1. K for EE

  2. K for EE, not getting any better

  3. Votto has three hits tonight. He’s saying, “Remember me?”

  4. Gee, I’ll bet Bob Castellini would like to have that $3mil back on the waste of a CF Corey Patterson! Baker needs to get rid of him himself to regain any respect. When is D. Thompson making his Louisville Debut?

  5. Did you say this is your first child? We have #2 on the way in August.

  6. No more at bats for Bruce tonight.

  7. First one, yep. Starting to feel real at this point.

  8. Wonder if the Reds will get any love on Baseball Tonight?

  9. Bruce is begining to make me regret getting a custom made Patterson jersey one week into the season 🙁

  10. Parenthood is wonderful!

    Our last one graduates from high school this weekend and is the valedictorian.

  17. He’s a good boy and his sister is pretty sweet as well.

  18. Did you guys know Bruce’s nickname is “The Deal”?

  19. Check that – that was just some dude’s idea.

  20. Parenthood is the best. Took my 3 year old son to see my old high school’s baseball team play in the regional playoffs today. Just the two of us. We had a blast; nothing better in the world.

    Plus, our team won 20-2. That helps.

  21. They’re still yelling “Bruuuuuuuuce,” apparently.

  22. Affeldt trying to make it a save situation.

  23. I have a friend who is a big Royals fan, and they’re Patterson is this guy- http://www.baseball-reference.com/p/penato02.shtml -and is getting playing time over this one (who I really like)- http://www.baseball-reference.com/c/callaal01.shtml

  24. Affeldt is stinking it up tonight. Bring in Coco.

  25. Pena sure was a lot of hype.

  26. wow their, not they’re. but their’s doesn’t bat leadoff

  27. This year’s bullpen is more like kerosene compared to last year’s gasoline compared to two years ago’s hydrogen.

  28. Watching Dunn, Griffey, and Bruce in the outfield chatting during the pitching change makes me smile.

  29. Would love to hear what Dunn, Griffey and Bruce are talking about.

  30. Why can’t George Grande pronounce “Hairston”?

  31. Yeah Chad, looks like they are having a good time. It’s good to see.

  32. …and this one belongs to the Reds!

    What a debut for Mr. Bruce.

  33. Watch out for Freel, Jay!

  34. Sure is nice for Affeldt to try and look as bad as Patterson does.

  35. Been a while since I’ve seen a smile like the one on Bruce’s face right now.

  36. Bruce – What a joy to see him look like a kid in a candy store!

  37. Let’s sign Bruce to a 20-year deal!

  38. theReds youth movement has begun!Patterson stays,1.salary 2.speed 3.still can play defense.Hati,limited throwing.He’ll end up in A.L. Good luck,Scott,you were a real professional.

  39. Jay Bruce Almighty, that has a nice ring to it. He makes Jr. look sleepy hitting behind that live bat. Darryl Thompson makes his Louisville debut tomorrow. We’ll see…keep an eye on Ben Juckich at Chatannoga

  40. Maybe the Rangers or Nationals will sign Scott Hati?

  41. Great game redlegs. I wonder what the difference was?
