Bengals vs. 49ers: Surprisingly Terrible

Riverfront Radio Logo

After starting the season with a close loss in Seattle in Week 1, the Bengals absolutely had the doors blown off by the 49ers in Week 2.  They looked terrible on both sides of the ball and any confidence we had in the team is now completely gone.  With the Reds approaching the end of an equally disappointing season, there aren’t many bright spots in Cincinnati sports these days, although Eugenio Suarez being tied for lead in the MLB home run race at least gives us something to hang our hats on.

Eugenio Suarez Ties Galarraga’s Venezuelan Home Run Record, Joins MLB Leaders With 47 Dingers

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

BREAKING: DAVID BELL HAS MADE HISTORY

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.

Scooter, Geno and Joey Are Headed to the All-Star Game

Yep, you heard that right. Your 2018 last place Cincinnati Redlegs are sending 3 guys to the All-Star game in DC next week.

Okay, fine. The Reds have been playing a lot better than their record shows, as of late. If it wasn’t for their historically bad start to the 2018 season, we may even be in some sort of race (Wild Card or Divisional). For the last month of the season, Scooter has been leading the league in hitting, and Eugenio Suarez has been tops in the NL in RBI for most of the season. And Joey is just Joey, as always.

It’s Time for People to Start Respecting the Cincinnati Reds

I know it sounds crazy to say that about a team that is currently in last place in their division, but anyone who has been paying attention to baseball for the last month knows it’s the truth. After starting the season with a disastrous 3-18 record, the Reds have gone 33-30, bringing their current record to 36-48. Sure, that’s still a pretty poor record and keeps them 12.5 behind the first place Brewers, but the way they’ve turned the season around and made themselves somewhat respectable deserves a hat tip from even the harshest of critics, but they don’t seem to be getting much respect.. especially in All-Star Game voting.

no respect

A lot of people predicted the Reds to be in the cellar of the NL Central this year, but nobody expected them to be this bad. Replacing Manager Bryan Price with Jim Riggleman, Mack Jenkins with Danny “Dr. Death” Darwin as the pitching coach and a rare early season trade for Matt Harvey has completely changed the trajectory of the 2018 Cincinnati Reds. A lot of the early struggles weren’t necessarily Bryan Price’s fault, but you can’t fire the roster, so something had to be done. And boy, did it work. Continue reading
