On today’s episode of Riverfront Radio, we have immediate reactions to Aquino hitting monster home-runs at Great American Ballpark, and the first Bengals preseason game. The Reds are looking good after a 10-1 win over the Cubs with a of bunch guys that were playing in Louisville earlier this month. Do we have a quarterback controversy in Cincinnati? NO. We love Andy. Enjoy the show!
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.
There was a lot of Reds news to catch up on from the past week between the Pirates fight and all of the deadline trades. Amir Garrett may have cemented himself as a fan favorite with his decision to take on the entire Pittsburgh bench by himself. We give our thoughts on the departure of Puig, Scooter and Co., the arrival of Trevor Bauer and what the future holds for the Reds for the rest of 2019 and beyond. We also look forward to the Bengals first preseason game and even dabble in some FC Cincinnati talk.
Who didn’t see this coming? AJ Green is injured (not hurt) and it’s got us all a little depressed about the start of Bengals training camp. We also ponder the future of some of our current Redlegs with the trade deadline coming up and the Reds pretty much eliminated from the divisional race. We also give Jeff a bunch of shit about his poor life choices. Enjoy the show!
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 →
The Reds are off to an absolutely abysmal start after the All Star break, which other than preventing Mac from having to get some awkward tattoos, has been of little benefit to us as fans. We discuss the potential trade deadline moves the team could make now that they’ve solidified themselves as sellers, and also give David Bell props for breaking the franchise record for single-season manager ejections. With the NFL preseason just a couple weeks away we start looking forward to football season and we take a few minutes to belittle each other for our personal preferences of ice cream flavors.
