2013 Reds / Game Thread

Game Thread: Reds at Phillies (2013.05.18)

The Reds 6-game winning streak ended last night which means it is time to start another winning streak of equal length or longer today.  The club will have to solve the curse that is playing the Phillies in Citizens Bank Ballpark if the hope to do so.

Bronson Arroyo will be called upon to get the job done for the Reds today.  Meanwhile, everyone who is not participating in the game will be checking to see if Votto’s HR ball from last night has landed yet.

Let’s cheer for the Reds to Go today and get the Win!

  1. Lutz now has zero walks in 29 plate appearances. It’s interesting how so many people wanted Cingrani down because he wasn’t ready, yet this guy on the big club seems ok.

      I actually think they both should be up. Lutz/Paul is better than Heisey. Lutz has also been a very good pinch hitter.

  2. Jamie Garcia to see Dr. James Andrews. Going to the DL and says he has pain every time he lifts his arm. Could be a huge blow to the Cardinals.

  3. FOX graphic shows Dusty Baker as having second most wins among active managers. Of course, he’s also number three in losses.

  4. Baker is #8 among active managers in winning percentage .526.

    Pete Rose had a winning percentage of .525 as a manager. Sparky was .545.

  5. Another at bat without an RBI for poor Votto. Will he ever break out of this slump?

  6. I hate to see Horst pitching for them. It just bugs me that the Reds traded him for Wilson Valdez.

  7. I love Bronson but we should probably get him outta there after this next batter. Hoover or Marshall or someone could use the work.

  8. And Dusty yanks him. Very good job for Arroyo.. Where is Wily Mo anyone? I would love to stand in the batter’s box and watch Arroyo’s pitches dance

  9. I think Votto is just tired of Choo being #1 in OBP. That’ll show him.

  10. I know I shouldn’t hold grudges for that long.. but it feels good to whup on the Phillies.

  11. I was at the game today. I’m not sure I was worthy to be in the same building with Joey Votto. Bold prediction time: Joey hits at least .360 this season. I mean, for those of us who still care about batting average anyway.

    And Bronson sure was “Good Bronson” today. Had Phils completely out of synch all day long.

    Sure was a fun day at the ballpark.

  12. Great game. Sorry I missed it.

    Star Trek Into Darkness was A.W.E.S.O.M.E.

    If you get a chance, see it at the IMAX in 3D. Wow!
