The City of Cincinnati might be in shambles after the Bengals got bent over a barrel and shown all 50 states by the San Francisco 49ers this afternoon, but that doesn’t mean Eugenio Suarez and the Reds weren’t around to help cheer us up. While we were taking a beating on the NFL front, Suarez was busy hitting home run 46 and 47. Continue reading
I swear to God this happens to me about 10 times a week, but today it’s really pissing me off. I had a really good blog idea this morning around 9:30 but now I can’t remember what it was. I can’t even tell you the general theme or subject. Was it sports? Was it something to do with pop culture? I have no fucking clue. Continue reading
Some things are bigger than the game itself. Sure, having winning team is great, but have you ever trolled an entire stadium of the opposing fan base?
This is just phenomenal work out of the San Diego stadium operations or stadium DJ or whoever makes these types of decisions. Continue reading
I’m not gonna sit here and tell you I wasn’t devastated when Yasiel Puig was traded to the Indians in a three-team deal that landed Cincinnati Trevor Bauer. It wasn’t because I was upset that Bauer was suddenly a Red, that was actually something that took away the sting a little bit. But there was still a void in my heart for a power hitting, exciting right fielder that we suddenly had no replacement for. Sure, guys like Philip Ervin and Jesse Winker have shown flashes of exceptional play, but Yasiel was Yasiel. They called him the Wild Horse for a reason. Whether he was crushing home runs, showcasing his arm from the warning track or trying to fight the entire Pirates organization, he was fun to watch.
In steps Aristides Aquino. What has he done? Oh, nothing much, just hit 7 home runs in his first 10 MLB games, including tonight’s three home run performance. Continue reading
Whoooooooooooooooooo buddddddddy……. if you were to tell me the Reds would be playing meaningful baseball vs. the Cubs in August, I would’ve asked how ugly the plane crash was that led to the demise of the Brewers and Cardinals. Like every season, I had false hope, but I think at the end of the day I probably knew the Reds were a year away from being a legit contender in the NL Central. But here we are in August with the Reds 7-games back from the NL Central leading Cubs coming to down for a 4-game series.
The Reds were in a prime position to sweep the Milwaukee Brewers today just in time to instill a false sense of hope and confidence right before the trade deadline. Will the Reds buy or sell? A lot of that depended on how the Milwaukee and Colorado series go.
Now the Reds have more concerns than just who they’re willing to part with at the deadline… Continue reading
That’s. My. Manager.
He might not have put on an Aaron Boone quality meltdown on an ump, but this is what I fucking love about David Bell. You might disagree with some of his double switches or quick/late hook with starters, but you can never question his commitment to this franchise and his players.
Hey Bobby Cox- David Bell is comin’ for that ass. What a year 2027 is gonna be when David Bell eclipses Bobby Cox’s record of 161 total ejections en route to his 5th or 6th championship (you never know when injuries may derail a season).
Whether it was a strike or not, I understand why Suarez was so mad too. The ump was itching to toss him and there’s no doubt in my mind that he said something to Geno on his way out of the dugout that sparked Round 2 of their beef.
Go Redlegs. Championship run starts today.Follow @BennyMacBlog
