Letting it All Hang Out

Today's my first job-free day after putting in notice at the ol' work factory, but it wasn't any less busy than my days. And it's still nice to sit back and enjoy some Reds baseball while the sun goes down.

Comments on tonight's game so far:

  • When will George be back? Having Thom is better than having no t.v. coverage at all, like there wasn't on Saturday, but…dang I'm missing George.
  • How awesome is it to chase a pitcher in the first inning? You think that a a lack of support had something to do with it?
  • It's just stupid to have the shift on for Griffey when Freel is on second. You got Hatteberg on second and that's a different story, but you got Freel on, and the Reds draw first blood. BWAHAHAHAHA!
  • Speaking of Hatteberg, he's hitting some unholy number, .320 or something. Someone has to want him, even if just for a AA guy and the opportunity to see Votto in action.
  • Livingston just damn-near stole second on what turned out to be a Freel foul off. Anything to prove his mettle, I reckon.
  • Oh! And in the time it took me to write that, he fell between second and third base and almost didn't make it back to the bag.

Clearly I need to pay my attention to this game. Even if I do have to listen to Thom.

    Griffey homer!

    Response heard at the Red Hot Mama house: “God, Thom, shut [em]up[/em]”

  2. Red Hot Mama says:

    Damn, how could you send Livingston down? He’s a better hitter than Chad Moeller!

    Not saying much, I know.

    Mmm…Chris Welsh talked about UDF chocolate malts, and now it’s on my brain. I’ve never had a UDF chocolate malt, but a genuine chocolate malt from any place sounds great.

    Livingston is on base AGAIN. If this were a video game, he would actually be on fire right now.

  4. Red Hot Mama says:

    9-2 in the top of the fifth.

    Save some of that for the sequel, fellas.

  5. Red Hot Mama says:

    Ooh, Griffey’s out at home. Now what’s the team going to do?

  6. Red Hot Mama says:

    Aw, man. I missed the light delay reading a bedtime story to my kid. It doesn’t sound as awesome as the [url=http://www.red-hot-mama.com/comments.php?id=144_0_1_0_C]Great Power Outage of ’05[/url], though, so at least I didn’t miss that.

    Livingston in 4 for 4 tonight. Maybe he shouldn’t be hitting 9th. He was a pretty good hitter in Louisville, too, batting about .300 IIRC.

    And you quit your job? I thought you bought your new house to be closer to your job.

  8. Red Hot Mama says:

    Hi, BubbaFan. Welcome!

    We did move to make the commute shorter, but since any place I’d work would likely be in Indy, the move will still make me significantly closer. In fact, the move opens up a lot of opportunities that weren’t really possible before.

  9. BubbaFan says:

    Hey, maybe you could get a job with the Indianapolis Indians. 😉

    Ugh. Have I mentioned lately that I really hate the 8th inning?

  10. Red Hot Mama says:

    Nice to see Coffey switching it up a little: not sprinting from the bullpen, losing the goatee, being an effective pitcher. You know, stuff like that.

  11. BubbaFan says:

    Hey, maybe it’s not sprinting that the key!

    He looked like he would rather be just about anywhere else than on the mound in that situation, but he got out of it.

  12. Red Hot Mama says:

    If I wrote for the Indians, would that mean I could get called up to the Pirates? Because that’s already a very competitive writing team. Maybe I could get traded.

    Reds win! I’d love to see a whole series like that.
