Yasiel Puig and the rest of the Reds are starting to find their bats, and a 4-1 week has Dan, Mac and Whitty feeling a little more positive about the season. The positive vibes have carried over onto the ice as well as the Blue Jackets have been a pleasant surprise, up 3-0 on a Lightning team that tied the NHL record for wins on the season. We also discuss UC’s new head coach, which wasn’t met by positive reactions from some former players, and we reflect on Tiger’s Masters victory and the impact he’s had on the world of golf.
The Reds are 1-8, and are officially depressing us. We discuss their poor start, the fight in Pittsburgh, and what it will take to turn this club around. Dietrich’s home-runs got us excited for the bats to turn it around for the ballclub, since the pitching has been decent so far. Enjoy the episode!
Now that we have a sufficient sample size to review, we provide all of our rational and irrational overreactions from the Reds’ 1-1 start. Some of the new comers haven’t gotten off to the hottest of starts, but on the bright side, they have new souvenir cups at the stadium now. We also give our thoughts on this year’s Final Four, which didn’t quite turn out exactly how we expected. Also, but congrats to Mac for winning the first annual Riverfront Radio bracket pool.
Welcome to the first ever episode of the Nati Boys podcast presented by Milliron Sports. Get to know DB, Jefe, Mac and Whitty a little more in our inaugural podcast. On today's show we discuss our favorite Cincinnati things, talk about sports/activities that we think we could be much better at than we actually are, and debate whether it would be better to face a wild, 100+ MPH fastball or take a choke slam from a professional wrestler.
