Another game tonight? Man, seems like the Reds play every day.

Aaron Harang is on the mound, so that’s a good thing, but if the team can’t hit, what does it matter? They wasted a very nice start by Johnny Cueto yesterday. Hope the same thing doesn’t happen with Harang today.

Discuss it here….

    Chad, I thought Arroyo was pitching tonight?

  2. slattspub

    Looks like Dusty is trying to shake up the lineup with votto leading off.

  3. mhopp

    Wow, Dusty has CP batting 7th instead of Votto so maybe there is hope. I wonder if someone finally pointed to the obvious or Dusty figured it out on his own? Either way Dusty sure does learn slow.

  4. Chad

    I can’t imagine Dusty figured it out on his own, after all this time.

  5. Chad

    Cabrera hits into a double play. Man, the Reds have had the worst 2-hitters this season of any team in the history of baseball.

  6. al

    sadly, it almost makes it worse that dusty finally moved cp down in the order. before i thought there was a .0000001% chance that he saw something there that i didn’t, or at least that he was crazy, and sometimes having a crazy manager can be fun.

    but now he’s sort of just admitted that he’s a stubborn idiot who had too much pride to admit a mistake.

    good thing we still have cabrerra hitting second though!

    Bruce is busy in the outfield tonight

    So I presume Fogg is starting in place of Bailey this weekend. We need to nickname him “The Cat.” He has nine lives in terms to returning to the rotation.

  9. Chad

    Ugh, Fogg. I hope the rumors of Daryl Thompson are true. At least he has a chance of being better than Fogg.

  10. Y-City Jim

    If it is going to be Thompson then they need to stop playing roster games and get him up here so he can be acclimated to the big leagues. Sending him out cold turkey into Yankee Stadium just isn’t real smart.

    Besides Dick Pole needs to work on his mechanics.

    Griffey ditched the Philly series. He’s worthless.

  12. Y-City Jim

    How about a new bobblehead where Junior is sitting on a toilet with his head in a bucket?

  13. Y-City Jim

    Firefox users – Version 3 came out yesterday.

  14. BenL

    Does version 3 offer any new features of note?

  15. K-Patt

    Sorry guys. I fot out again. I’ll do better next time.

  16. Y-City Jim

    It seems faster, It has a feature called the Awesome Bar. Remembers settings such as zoom from use to use.

    Video of features

  17. DevilsAdvocate

    The new Firefox is supposed to be faster, and manage its memory use a lot better.

  18. DevilsAdvocate

    Meanwhile, Arroyo is getting bled to death by papercuts. Single runs allowed in four separate innings now.

  19. Y-City Jim

    Dusty now needs to address the #2 spot. Cabrera doesn’t belong there.

  20. Y-City Jim

    JB looks like he might be getting adjusted.

  21. Y-City Jim

    Table is set, AD. Clean your plate.

  22. Y-City Jim

    Conveniently, they didn’t show the OBP with runners in scoring position.

  23. mhopp

    This team is pathetic no matter what way you cut it, they suck

  24. K-Patt

    I was up next, and I was all set to hit a homer if EE got on. I’m good against lefties.

  25. Ben

    I suppose Dunn might walk when he bats in the eight so that OBP stays above .400. That’s all that really matters

  26. K-Patt

    OBP’s not important. Mine’s .226 and Dad, I mean Dusty, keeps playing me everyday.

    Or maybe it’s because of those nude photos I’m blackmailing him with.

  27. Chad

    Haven’t downloaded Firefox 3 yet. I heard there are still lots of bugs. True?

  28. Y-City Jim

    What good does it do for Patterson to be a “burner” if he takes the wrong routes constantly?

  29. Y-City Jim

    Will the Reds have any runners in scoring position the remainder of the game? Currently they are 23rd in MLB.

    I love it!!! Baker PH’s for Patterson and Hoppy gets a hit.

  30. K-Patt

    By burner they meant I smoke a lot of pot.

    Hey, Dusty pinch hit for me! No fair!

  31. Y-City Jim

    That explains the “dazed and confused” look.


  32. Y-City Jim

    Wonder if the Reds would play better if they smoked some weed?

  33. BenL

    If nothing else, it might increase the Bronson Arroyo’s consumption of JTM beef ho-oagies.

  34. K-Patt

    Paul Bak-o does play for the team.


  35. Y-City Jim

    Might change the assortment of advertisers as well. Hostess cupcakes might become a major sponsor.


  36. Y-City Jim

    Not to mention a major shift in promotional items.

  37. Y-City Jim

    Just think. Next year the Reds slogan can be something like a “Decade of Losing.”

  38. Y-City Jim

    Am I hallucinating? Gary “Daddy” Majewski’s ERA is now 3.00.

  39. Chad

    I am so sick of this losing crap. Basically, we’re the Pirates. Losing season after losing season.

  40. DevilsAdvocate

    That’s a good photo for Gary M. Cheeky!

    I’ve gotta say, this team is pretty boring the past few weeks.

  41. Y-City Jim

    I’m thinking of making that Majewski photo my desktop wallpaper if I can ever compel myself to replace my Corey Patterson desktop wallpaper.

  42. Y-City Jim

    They say Hopper is starting tomorrow.

  43. Y-City Jim

    This team hits like they are clog-a-phobic.

  44. mhopp

    I think I’ll make some Sorry Outterson toilet paper
