    Double Bubba Double

    Reds up 3-2

  2. BubbaFan says:

    RBI double for Bubba! It’s the go-ahead run!

  3. Red Hot Mama says:

    Yay Crosby! Gets us the lead!

  4. Red Hot Mama says:

    Hubba Bubba lookin’ good. 😎

  5. Red Hot Mama says:

    After 5 1/2, the Reds lead it 3-2. Suddenly this game is fun to watch again!

  6. Red Hot Mama says:

    Well, listen to, anyway.

  7. BubbaFan says:

    I know, it’s only spring training, so it shouldn’t matter, but it’s a lot more fun when they’re winning. 🙂

  8. Red Hot Mama says:

    Spring training or not, it’s a lot more fun to see them play well.

  9. BubbaFan says:

    Gil is a much better third baseman than he is a CFer.

  10. Red Hot Mama says:

    Saarloos gives up a two-out double to Francisco.

  11. BubbaFan says:

    That Francisco guy is having a great spring. He’s always trouble.

  12. Red Hot Mama says:

    Too bad the Reds already have a 3B. I mean, not too bad, but too bad for Gil.

  13. BubbaFan says:

    Saarloos gets out of it.

  14. Red Hot Mama says:

    Nice to hear about some good communication as Hopper pulls down out numbe three to end the inning.

  15. Redsfan68 says:

    Lets go Votto !

  16. Red Hot Mama says:

    Deno grounds out to third. Not such a great game for the Heartthrob.

  17. Redsfan68 says:

    Mercado with a three baser !!!


  18. Red Hot Mama says:

    Votto’s aboard on a walk. Machado coming up. Is Machado still switch-hitting? It doesn’t say so on

  19. BubbaFan says:

    RBI triple for Machado. 4-2 Reds!

  20. Red Hot Mama says:

    Moeller trying to make a case for three-catchers with an RBI double to the wall.

  21. Red Hot Mama says:

    How many different game threads do you participate in during a game, BF?

  22. Red Hot Mama says:

    5-2 after six and a half. Go Reds!

  23. BubbaFan says:

    Um, depends. Three or four. I kind of slut around. Depends on what’s going on where.

    I used to do this with Yankees gamethreads, too. 🙂

  24. Redsfan68 says:


    Sorry ’bout being ahead of your postings.
    I’m listening live on WLW, either that or
    I’m just typing faster

  25. Redsfan68 says:

    pitchers best friend ! end of inning

  26. Red Hot Mama says:

    BF –
    These game threads are pretty new to RHM. They’ll get better!

    Any particularly interesting conversations going on elsewhere?

    RF68 –
    No need to apologize, I’m just glad you’re here. It’s sort of neat to get a preview of what’s about to happen (though I usually haven’t refreshed soon enough…)

  27. Red Hot Mama says:

    Well, that was a fast top of the eighth. But it’s hard to complain when they still lead 5-2

  28. BubbaFan says:

    It’s pretty dead elsewhere in Redsland today. People probably have better things to do on a sunny afternoon. And they probably weren’t blown away by the starting lineup.

    They’re discussing whether to trade Deno at RedsZone. I don’t see that happening. Given the likely starting outfield, they need guys with options left, that they can send up and down as needed.

  29. Redsfan68 says:

    another double play…..

  30. Red Hot Mama says:

    I was in the other room making hot chocolate (I’m still sick on this sunny afternoon), but I heard something about an excellent play by Anderson Machado and a double play to end the inning.

  31. Red Hot Mama says:

    I don’t know; the Reds have a lot of potential outfielders. I’m not sure that Wise or Hopper are as good as Deno, but if the offer was right…

  32. BubbaFan says:

    It was an excellent play by Machado because of truly horrible fielding by Dumatrait. Machado saved his bacon.

  33. Red Hot Mama says:

    Bad plays by other people are just making Machado look great today!

  34. BubbaFan says:

    The consensus seems to be that Deno wouldn’t bring much. The folks at RedsZone think it’s Freel who should be traded, because he’ll bring something decent in return.

  35. Red Hot Mama says:

    Do they say what they think Freel should be traded for?

  36. Red Hot Mama says:

    Reds strand two to keep the lead 5-2 going into the bottom of the ninth.

  37. BubbaFan says:

    No. But they’re probably thinking pitching. Seems like that’s what everyone wants. A closer, maybe?

    The Reds strand two. Last licks for the Tribe.

  38. Red Hot Mama says:

    The team would definitely miss Freel. They’d have to get some very good pitching for him, and I’m not sure that kind of pitching is available.

    Of course, Krivsky always comes through with the trades I never expected.

  39. Redsfan68 says:

    This one belongs to the reds !!

    Coutlangus seals the deal.

  40. Red Hot Mama says:

    I’m glad to say that I found Brantley much easier to listen to today. Maybe he just needs some experience on the radio.

  41. BubbaFan says:

    I wouldn’t trade Freel. But I’m not sure I’d make him a starting OFer, either. I think his value is as a utility guy.

    One of the reasons given for trading him now is that his value may never be higher. They seem to think he’ll decline quickly, because of his all-out style of play.

    And the Reds win.

  42. Red Hot Mama says:

    I don’t think there’s any evidence for that, but even if he does slow down on the field, he’ll always been a sparkplug in the clubhouse, plus a fan-favorite.

  43. Redsfan68 says:

    He (brantley) should get better with time.

    I just don’t like it when the announcers get too critical of the home team.
    Especially when we are down and I’m already in a bad mood. Joe would always balance Marty out.

  44. Red Hot Mama says:

    Yes, I realize I’m preaching to the choir. 🙂

    :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray:
    (^the choir)

  45. Red Hot Mama says:

    Brantley’s not afraid to speak his mind, so as long as he stays positive himself, he might be able to play that role.

  46. Red Hot Mama says:

    Thanks, guys, for coming by to enjoy the game with me today. I’m going to take a nap.

    Tomorrow’s my nephew’s first birthday party is at 1, but I’ll put up a game thread before I go.

  47. BubbaFan says:

    Now they want to trade someone for [url=]Jason Ellison[/url].

    Eh. I don’t see that he’s a better option than Hamilton.

  48. Redsfan68 says:

    Thanks for the Saturday entertainment RHM

    the day is already better due to a win over the indians
