Screaming Mimes Concert

If you're in the greater Cincinnati-land area tomorrow before the game, you can check out the Screaming Mimes concert:


Find out THIS SATURDAY, April 21st at P&G Pavillion in Sawyer Point, down by the river in Cincinnati! EARTH DAY 2007 is back and they've finally recovered enough from our first appearance to invite us again! This year we will be rockin' the stage with another incredible collection of bands, with the day topping off with The Smithereens! We take the stage at 4:00 so pack up your good vibes, a little sunscreen and a fuzzy blanket and hear us crash boom bang through some songs from our upcoming CD! And it's all free!

Here's the main stage band schedule:
2:00 Ellery
4:00 Screaming Mimes (yay!)
5:30 Peppertown
6:45 The Smithereens

Besides the main music stage there's lots of really cool vendors and great food and you can learn a lot about mulch. I know I'm bringing my camera for the Recycled Fashion Show. Shout song titles at The Smithereens (I'm screaming for “Too Much Passion”). Then you can walk a block and take in a Reds game if you like! Who says nothing happens downtown?

Tell Dave I said hi.

    Living here in the frozen wastelands near Buffalo, New York, it’s quite a bit more than a block for me to walk to take in a Reds’ game. Instead, I’ll try to be here for the game thread. I’ll also try to drum up a rabbit’s foot or a four-leaf clover or something. Anything to try to offset The Alex Madrid Effect.

    Phillies’ starter Cole Hamels has a career ERA of 0.00 against the Reds. He’s only pitched against them once, last May 12 when he threw five innings of one-hit ball, with 7 strikeouts. Oh, and he’s a lefthander.

    We all know that Reds’ hitters flat-out destroy lefthanders they haven’t seen a lot of. That’s what The Alex Madrid Effect is all about. One of these days the Crack Hard Facts Staff will get around to posting about that one.

    Speaking of lefthanders, Eric Milton gets the start for the Reds, in search of his first win of the season. Hide your children, Milton’s career numbers in three starts against Philly might not be suitable for young viewers: 6.48 ERA, with 18 hits and 7 walks allowed in 16-2/3 innings, and a couple of homers thrown in for extra flavoring.

    Yeah, I know, too much bad news in this post. So here’s some good news: The Reds have a guy who Phillies fans consider to be a notorious Phillie-Killer, namely Jeff Conine, who figures to start at 1B tonight with a southpaw on the hill for Philly.

    Conine’s reputation as a Phillie-Killer goes back to 2003 when he was with the Marlins, and hit .324 with three dingers and 11 RBI against the Phillies that year.

    Florida just edged Philly in the wild card race. The Marlins scheduled postseason games. Lots of them. They went on to win the World Series.

    The Phillies scheduled tee times.

    I remember ol’ King Cole from last year. He killed the Yanks. 😛
