Change of Pwnership

The Cincinnati Reds got new owners this year in Bob Castellini and company, and we all know what a big impact it's had on the team.

There's another change of ownership going on right now that won't get its own press conference, but is also making a huge impact on the Reds. I'm speaking of course, of the pwnership of the Cardinals. After years of being pwned by the Cardinals, the Reds are finally turning the tables and providing a little pwnage of their own.

Tonight, our boys show off the power of tradition by sweeping the series and giving the Cards some company in first place.

Go Reds!

  1. The game is on ESPN by the way.

  2. Red Hot Mama says:

    No kidding. Hattey is the star of the offense. Guess that’s what happens when the likes of Griffey is unavailable.

  3. Red Hot Mama says:

    Heck yeah Richie!

  4. Skeeter says:

    Ditto, again, with Aurilia hitting cleanup.

  5. Red Hot Mama says:

    But if I watched it on ESPN, I wouldn’t get to hear Chris Welch say “back-to-back doo-blays”

  6. Red Hot Mama says:

    Apparently it took Dunn hitting his 18th home run to get moved down in the order.

  7. Skeeter says:

    I was going to ignore that, but there it is in writing.

    …He gets paid to say crap like that. Amazing.

  8. It’d be really nice to score a run sometime.

  9. Red Hot Mama says:

    Ouch. You know, they usually intentionally walk the catcher to get to the pitcher, not the second baseman to get to the catcher.

  10. Skeeter says:

    …an intentional walk to get to LaRue? This could be interesting.
    Or he might ground out.

  11. Skeeter says:

    0-28!? Good GOD. I didn’t know it was that bad.

  12. Good grief, kiss the Reds’ owner’s ass a little more Dan & Al.

  13. Red Hot Mama says:

    And now we see why.

  14. Skeeter says:

    Jason LaRue is currently planning a stairwell accident for David Ross.

  15. Red Hot Mama says:

    I’ve shook Castellini’s hand, you know. Didn’t kiss his ass, though. Didn’t seem appropriate in the restaurant, with kids around and all.

  16. Skeeter says:

    You don’t take risks, RHM.

  17. Red Hot Mama says:

    That’s why I’ll never make it big.

  18. I’m going to Chicago this weekend. I’ll be glad to see the White Sox/Indians game so I don’t care who wins. It’s on Fox; look for me on TV!!

  19. Skeeter says:

    LoL, Chris is thinking “why didn’t I do that when I was pitching?”

  20. Red Hot Mama says:

    It’s been 15 innings since the Cardinals have scored a run.

    Sounds like a good time, Ms. Scratcher. The other Chicago team will be getting trounced in Cincy, so good times all around.

  21. Skeeter says:

    I love Chicago. Would like to live there, and taunt Cubs fans.

  22. Red Hot Mama says:

    George Grande: “The Reds looking to do something they haven’t done in a long time: sweep the redbirds.”

    He’s right, you know. It’s been, like, a month.

  23. It’s funny. No one likes the Cubs.

  24. Red Hot Mama says:

    Freel is the tiniest power hitter I’ve ever seen. Long double from the little guy.

  25. Skeeter says:

    To be fair, he did say in St. Louis.

    …I think.

  26. Look, Union Station!

    The new pitcher is dating the color guy’s daughter.

  27. Skeeter says:

    I don’t think I read that right the first time.

  28. Red Hot Mama says:

    Aw, and today is his 25th birthday. How nice.

  29. Course, Tyler can’t find the plate….

  30. Red Hot Mama says:

    Happy birthday, kiddo. Love, Richie.

  31. The Proxy called that.

  32. Skeeter says:

    It’ll be a good week before I question Jerry Narron again.

  33. Red Hot Mama says:

    If the game ended now, the score would be the same as yesterday’s game. But its only the sixth.

    Honestly, Belly. I like winning as much as the next gal, but this isn’t even a game.

    Of course, I say that, but that doesn’t mean that deep down I’m not afraid they’ll give it up in the ninth.

  34. Don’t worry. The Cardinals have absolutely no desire to win this game. And they’ll probably look just as bad this weekend, so enjoy first place. For the couple days you have it.

  35. Skeeter says:

    How, exactly, is it a “shot to center” when Freel, who plays a shallow CF, as detailed by Welsh earlier, comes in to catch the ball? …just wonderin’…

  36. Daedalus says:

    just stopped by to see if bellyscratcher has turned the game off and gone to bed yet.

    😉

  37. Red Hot Mama says:

    You say that like you’re going to be out of first. It’s just going to be a tie.*

    I dunno. The Reds will have a 7-game winning streak.* I bet they’ll get so worked up about keeping the streak going that they’ll drop the first one to the Cubs.

    * Assuming they don’t pull a Graves and give it up in the ninth.

  38. Red Hot Mama says:

    Hey! They scored a run!

    Gulp. I shouldn’t have mentioned Graves.

  39. Skeeter says:

    Why cut the throw!?

  40. Because they’re still the Reds?

  41. Red Hot Mama says:

    Truly told. You never know when the balls going to end up in the stands.

    On the other hand, Encarnacion isn’t even playing tonight.

  42. Skeeter says:

    We might be error prone, but we usually don’t make silly plays like that.

  43. Proxy says: “Neither was ours until just now.”

  44. Red Hot Mama says:

    Crack technical staff says: “Ow, my spleen!”

    I don’t think it was related.

  45. Better make sure it’s not a wandering spleen. I saw that on some TV show.

  46. Red Hot Mama says:

    Whoo. Thank you Chris Hammond.

  47. Red Hot Mama says:

    Wandering Spleen should be Tony La Russa’s nickname.

  48. Skeeter says:

    National Gun Day is apparently two days. (June 10th, 11th) Who knew?
    …gotta love the FSN commercials!
