2013 Reds / Game Thread

Game Thread: Stinking Fish at Reds (2013.04.19)

Is it too early in the season to compare this year’s Marlins team with last year’s Astros team?  The Marlins are bad.  Of course I do not care if you are good or bad, I want the Reds to win. That is exactly what the Reds are going to do in this series!  If you are like me, you want it to say W7  beside of the Reds in the standings after this series is over.

Of course the Reds can’t get to W7 without first getting to W5 and that is what the Reds will look to do tonight.  Mat Latos has had some rough luck this season when it comes to wins and losses.  His record is 0-0 despite his 3.26 earned run average in 3 starts.  At the same time, his pitching couterpart Kevin Slowey is 0-2 for the season despite a 2.04 ERA.  That may or may not be surprising when you consider the team Slowey has behind him.

So the Reds go for five in a row tonight at the ballpark.  I’ll be sitting in attendance…watching my son in a talent show.  I’ll be relying on members of the Nation to keep me updated of the score while I wait for my son to take the stage.  Here’s to hoping my son and the Reds break a leg tonight. No wait! Too many injuries already.  Let’s just stick with going.  GO REDS!

  1. Going to the 9th inning, Chapman on for the Reds, still tied 1-1. Marlins at 4-5-6 in the order.

  2. At this rate, Aroldis may go into the All Star Break with a 8-2 record with a 1.40 ERA.

  3. With apologies to Simon and Garfunkel, “Where’s your bat gone Joey Votto, Redleg Nation turns our hopeful heart to you.”

  4. Marty, after Votto struck out: “You really don’t see any light at the end of the tunnel.”

  5. Can Votto hit a baseball or is he just fine with taking walks and going 0-2 every night?

  6. I don’t understand why guys are even walking him right now. Zero contact with the ball that AB?

  7. Well I guess if we can only get 5 hits off the Marlins we deserve to lose.

  8. Who’d thought that Mat Latos should have begged the team to save some runs, against the Marlins, the night Tony Cingrani starts? This is why this game is un-freakin’-believable.

  9. Hey can’t win em all, heck we’ll teach em a lesson they won’t soon forget tomorrow. Go Reds!! Adios Amigos.

  10. Supposedly a cold and windy night in Cincy. I wonder if the boys mailed it in tonight? No injuries and we will get them tomorrow- love the marathon.
