    Conine is the man, man. I don’t love him like I loved Aurilia, but I’ve got to recognize.

  2. KC2HMZ says:

    Yes, Conine doubled and they walked Dunn on purpose.

  3. Red Hot Mama says:

    And he’s in on a single by EdE. 6-1. Rockin’.

  4. KC2HMZ says:

    Doubled again, I should say.

  5. BubbaFan says:

    You smoke cigars? o_O

    Conine’s veteran-osity comes through.

  6. KC2HMZ says:

    Woo-hoo! Go reds! Keep tacking on those insurance runs. Might need ’em once Captain Hook starts his show.

  7. Red Hot Mama says:

    Ross hits into a double play to end the inning. That’s right: only a DOUBLE play. Yippee!

  8. KC2HMZ says:

    Good thing there was already one out or that could have been another triple play Ross would have just hit into.

    And in Houston it’s now 10-1, Astros.

  9. Zeldink says:

    So does that mean Special D is out of his slump? I mean, a double play is better than a triple play.

  10. KC2HMZ says:

    Heh…wow, RHM, judging from our last two comments, I guess great minds really do think alike.

  11. KC2HMZ says:

    Belisle is through eight innings on 83 pitches.

  12. KC2HMZ says:

    :ha: And bayliss is off to a flying start, walking the opposing pitcher.

  13. Red Hot Mama says:

    Occasionally, but I can’t take the way I smell afterward. It’s a whole-evening affair: smoke cigar, brush teeth, put clothes in washer, shower, brush teeth again, etc. The first time I smoked a cigar I was waking up in the middle of the night to use mouthwash!

    Still, I enjoy it for some reason. Jonny got me a collection of them for my birthday last year. Among my life goals is to smoke a Cuban. That and 1) singing the national anthem at a major sporting event and 2) doing something worthy of having a banquet thrown in my honor.

    Stupid goals perhaps, but something to work toward.

  14. Red Hot Mama says:

    Do all catchers look that goofy in the chest protector thingy? That just looks silly.

  15. KC2HMZ says:

    Walk, HBP, single – hey, when did we trade Coffey to the Pirates?

  16. Red Hot Mama says:

    Woo-hoo! Pad those stats, baby!!

    Reds up 8-1.

  17. Zeldink says:

    Save some of those runs for the coming week, please! :pray:

  18. Red Hot Mama says:

    I’d like to take this opportunity to say how much I appreciate the consistent television coverage of the Reds this season. Years past I’d come home to find that the game just wasn’t on and instead FSNO was airing The Sports List or something, but I’m happy to say that hardly ever happens now. The only games that aren’t televised seem to be the weekday afternoon ones, which I couldn’t watch very easily anyway.

    It’s the bottom of the ninth. Will Belise get the complete game?

  19. Red Hot Mama says:

    Who loves the Pirates’ parrot? I think he may even be better than the Gapper.

  20. Red Hot Mama says:

    All right! Nicely done, young fella!

  21. KC2HMZ says:

    Yeah, but we have Mr. Redlegs and Rosie, too. 😎

  22. KC2HMZ says:

    And this one belongs to the Reds!

  23. Zeldink says:

    Great job, Belisle! Now go out and win the series tomorrow.

  24. KC2HMZ says:

    Cool beans, RHM, you’ll actually get to enjoy writing the game wrap this time.

  25. BubbaFan says:

    Well, yesterday was a pretty miserable day for me, baseball-wise. Today, a surfeit of riches. The Yanks beat the Sox, despite losing their starting pitcher after one batter. The Bats won both games of their doubleheader. And the Reds won, too. Not only that, no bullpen problems, ’cause Belisle went the distance! Thank you, thank you. That’s almost better than the win.
