Flopez at the Bat

The Cardinals are 12.5 games back?? Will they never learn to do a proper late-series collapse? You’d think they’d know, watching the Cubs as much as they have.

    Freakin’ Schumaker gets aboard, but Pujols pops up? Bronson Arroyo is a madman.

    Mr. Dickerson at the bat. I met Chris at a Reds Caravan event one year. Seems like a nice young man.

  3. Red Hot Mama says:

    He’s wearing 21. I’m not expecting the Reds to retired Casey’s number or anything, but doesn’t it seem like they’d reserve it for a year or two?

    Same for Hatteberg. :P

    Schumaker’s facial hair makes Spezio look cool.

    Today is my wedding anniversary. The CTS replaced my wedding band (I lost the first one, apparently by dropping it down the drain), and I made him some brownies.

    I tell ya, thinks get really romantic at the 12 year mark.

  6. Red Hot Mama says:

    Chris and Thom are talking about firing Ned Yost. Chris thinks that the ownership invested so much in C. C. Sabathia that their tolerance was low for September failure.

  7. Red Hot Mama says:

    Thom doesn’t like the move. Now I like it better.

  8. Red Hot Mama says:

    Power is still out for people in the Cincinnati-land area. I’d send my eSympathy, except none of them can see it.

  9. Red Hot Mama says:

    The Glaus lead-off homer in the second was so quiet, I didn’t even notice it until the bottom of the inning.

    Now it’s the fourth, and Bronson just got his first K of the night.

  10. Red Hot Mama says:

    Schumaker should take facial hair lessons from Jason LaRue.

  11. Red Hot Mama says:

    Woo-hoo! First K in the fourth, now the first hit. At this rate, the Reds will have two whole hits before this game is over.

  12. Red Hot Mama says:

    arroyo is cruising. Where was this in…hell, any previous time this year?

  13. Red Hot Mama says:

    Holy crap, I take a couple minutes to tickle my son before bed and the next thing I know, the Reds are winning!

    Clearly, I should tickle my son more. He’ll probably wish I’d stop once he’s 14 or so, but it’s for the good of the team.
