I wanted to comment on the ludicrousness of this line-up, but then I saw the JTM commercial with Bronson Arroyo and Chris Welsh, and now I’m speechless. Wow.

  1. Red Hot Mama says:

    Doh: Freel flew out.

    But The Cowboy said something that was pretty insightful, suggesting that Freel may be seeing some playing time at third base tomorrow.

  2. Zeldink says:

    I could see that. Wouldn’t be a bad choice, really.

  3. Red Hot Mama says:

    good play by EdE, just not in time to get the runner.

  4. Red Hot Mama says:

    Affeldt is in and has walked the bases loaded. There’s one out in the top of the ninth and the Reds are down 2. The crowd is crazy with cold from the sound of it.

    Good times.

  5. Zeldink says:

    The Reds pitching has not started off the season well. Of course, the same could be said of almost every team in the NL Central.

  6. Red Hot Mama says:

    Eric Byrnes made contact…with his elbow out of the batters box and he’s out. Lucky for Afeldt, what with all those ducks on the pond.

  7. Red Hot Mama says:

    Whew! Strike out to end the inning.

    George Grande isn’t here to say it, but we’re all thinking it…

    “It’s last round-up time for the Reds.”

  8. Zeldink says:

    The Reds just advertised an upcoming giveaway: a car magnet schedule. So where exactly do you stick this magnet?

  9. Zeldink says:

    Phillips led off the 9th with a hit!

    Now let’s bunt him over.

  10. Red Hot Mama says:

    Brandon Phillips is aboard to start the bottom of the ninth.

  11. Red Hot Mama says:

    They put the shift on Dunn. Where are they shifting toward? The outfield?

  12. Zeldink says:

    Sweet! Dunn went the other way and beat the shift.

  13. Red Hot Mama says:

    Oh, hell yeah. Dunn went the other way.

  14. Red Hot Mama says:

    Why are they talking about EdE bunting? The Reds are down by 2.

    Ah, of course. How could I forget the elusive 3-run bunt?

  15. Zeldink says:

    Of course EdE’s bunting. Baker’s the manager.

  16. Red Hot Mama says:

    oh, sweet lord, he’s squaring to bunt.

    Can someone make this makes sense to me?

  17. Red Hot Mama says:

    Now that Baker has thrown away EdE’s first two strikes, he gets to swing.


  18. Zeldink says:

    Brantley: “[Encarnacion] is not a clutch player.”

    Encarnacion: CRACK!

    Reds win. Now why was EdE bunting?

  19. BubbaFan says:

    Good grief. Keppy’s 3 for 3 with a walk?

    He was positively unreal when I saw him in spring training, and it looks like he’s keeping it up.

  20. Red Hot Mama says:

    Phillips, Dunn, and EdE made that happen. Not a one of them is over 30.

    Just sayin’.

  21. smartelf says:

    Baker tells the media that he wanted EdE to fail at the bunt so he could hit the home run. Good thinking Dusty. The inane stuff that comes out of his mouth… let’s just say now I understand why he keeps a toothpick in it.
