Reds Going for the Sweep

In my last day at home before getting back to the grind, I couldn't ask for better daytime entertainment than a good Reds' game. And since they're playing the Braves, I get to watch on TBS. Woo-hoo!

Aaron Harang goes up against John Smoltz this afternoon. Smoltz is a big name with a big history, but he's fresh off the DL.

Here's the line-ups. Thanks C. Trent!

    Francoeur does not know how to take pitches… just pitch around him and force him to swing at some CRAPOLA… just brought Freel into the infield to go for a crazy double play. Christ! Just stike this guy out!

    Some crazy new age philosophy just panned out! THis guy Meckanin is wacky enough to confuse us into liking him.

    There isn’t a stunned enough emoticon to represent my current expression.

    Here we are in the top of 12, still tied at 3s. And I’ve got to go pick up my kid from day care. But I’ll be listening intently in the car!

    Go REDS!

    No one updated since the 12th? Damn, sorry… I was listening on my radio very nrvously the several last innings. I must say Brantley is def. subscribing to the Bob Eucker school of announcing and it is a pleasure to listen to. This was a classic game that I will always remember. A gutty team win, winning despite a lot of shit that went against us.. didn’t seem like this one was in the cards and we found a way to pull it off.

    I just got back from dinner at Chuck E. Cheese (or “The C.E.C” as we call it) and got to hear about the winning play on the Reds update on WLW. Marty seemed so unenthusiastic in the clip that they played, that I thought for sure that the run he was talking about crossing the plate was for the Braves!

    I sure am glad he was just tired.

    Yea they were exhausted… Brantley started to jabber about something and was making no sense at all when he just stopped in mid-sentence and said “it’s the 15th inning…”
