Cubs at Reds (July 7, 2014)

Steve has already announced the big news regarding tonight’s lineup versus the Cubs…Jay Bruce is starting at 1B. That conversation and debate has been on-going for a few hours now. In other news, the Reds will be sending 4 players to the All-Star game.

But right now let’s focus on the Chicago Cubs. The Reds and Cubs begin a 4-day, 5 game series with one another beginning tonight in Cincinnati. I’ll have the luxury of being at Thursday’s series finale where I hope to see the Reds go for the sweep. Not much else I can say about the Cubs, so I’ll defer to this oldie but goody from Mr. Marty. Just a reminder: Cubs gonna Cub.

  1. Nice to see some runs on the board. Lots of contributions today. Great win. Go Reds!!!

  2. Interesting developments/tidbits in MLB world.
    1. Arroyo needs Tommy John.
    2. Schoenfield over at Sweetspot thinks Reds might fallout of NL central race if JV is limited rest of the season because of his injuries. According to Price, he is going to be limited and we are seeing it.

    I just have a feeling we will find a way to stay in the hunt till the end.

    • I like your positive mindset, and I too think the Reds will stay in the hunt till the very end. Of course there’s always going to be the nattering nabobs of negativity that seem to live to criticize the team they claim to be a fan of. Go Reds!

  3. Bryan Price REALLY needs to read the brilliant “death by bunting” article that appeared on this blog last year. That was an amazing piece of work that completely changed how I viewed the bunt, and for the life of me I can’t figure out why a “smart” guy like Price can’t figure out that bunting is nothing more than giving the opponent an out that this horrific offense can ill afford to do.
