2013 Reds / Game Thread

Game Thread: Cardinals at Reds (2013.08.02)

Let’s get it on!  With 2 months remaining in the season, the Reds and Cardinals face off tonight for the first of ten remaining games the teams have left with one another.  If the Reds can get back to playing good baseball, the opportunity to gain ground on the Cardinals and Pirates is there as the Reds have 16 games left on their schedule against the two teams ahead of them in the standings.  Of course, if they Reds don’t play well, then… Well, let’s not think about that.

Bronson Arroyo will get the nod in game 1, facing Cardinals starter Shelby Miller.  I have a good feeling about tonight and this series.  Perhaps it is because I’ll be at Saturday’s and Sunday’s game.  The first games I will be in attendance for all season. 

Discuss the game here and…… LET’S!! GOOOO!!!! REDS!!!!!

    • @Redsfanx: A couple of folks said it very well above. Nothing all year on the left side of the diamond but wannabe AAAA and bench guys plau for the last month the same type of guy behind the plate most of the time. A couple of these guys may eventually be something more in the correct circumstance but putting 4 of them on the field every night does not make for them or the team.

  1. In the last 2 yeras if you take out the Reds sweep of the Cardnials in the opening series after the ASB last yr the Cardnials are 16-6 vs the Reds and have won 7 straight series vs the Reds.

  2. Man, if only Chris Farley could come back to life and give an inspirational speech to the Reds.

    Also, Yankees just dropped a former top prospect who was posting some ridiculously good offensive numbers in AAA. He’s still 25, as well. Worth a flyer?

  3. Here we go, Thomas Neal, an outfielder who was formerly a top Giants prospect. These are his numbers in AAA this year: .325/.391/.411.
