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.
Clint Boling is calling it quits for the Bengals, and we wish we could retire early too. The Reds are off to a crappy start to the 2nd half of the season, and we wonder if they’ll be buyers or sellers at the trade deadline. We also talk more in depth about the Reds 150th anniversary jerseys they’ve been wearing. Enjoy the show!
If you’re anything like me, you’re either anticipating a bald spot, or already covering one up with a sweet New Era cap featuring your favorite team. Since 2011, MLB has been coming out with special Stars and Stripes editions of hats for all teams to wear on the 4th of July. Here are my personal rankings of the hats. Shout me out on twitter with your favorite one: @NatiBoyDB.
First to worst:
2011: pictured above is the best hat that they’ve come out with so far. It incorporates the flag, and has a great mix of all of the colors into the “C” logo. It helps that the Reds main color is featured prominently on the hats, because I always think the Stars and Stripes hats for teams with no red or blue in their team colors looks weird (the Orioles, for example). I really think they peaked early with this one; it was the first edition of the Stars and Stripes hats, and they knocked it out of the park, only to go downhill from there.
I still wear this hat; I wore it last night, actually. Love it.
The Reds earned another series victory over the Cubs this past weekend, which included some fireworks between Yasiel Puig and Pedro Strop. We discuss that, David Bell’s record-setting ejection numbers and the fact that Castillo is the lone Reds All-Star. We touch on the ridiculous NBA free agency numbers and Mac and Whitty get their hopes up thanks to some late-breaking NHL free agency rumors. We also take a moment to wish are friends north of the border a Happy Canada day, as well as a Happy Fourth of July to all of our listeners here in the states.
We’re back! Riverfront Radio finally has some good news as the Reds had a decent week while we were off. We chat about the Reds possibly turning it around, the Big 3 starting up for some summer basketball, and give you some details about the local Cincinnatians making national headlines. Enjoy the show!
We start off this week’s episode of Riverfront Radio talking about the Reds recent struggles as they just can’t seem to dig out of the hole they put themselves in at the beginning of the season. We also voice our frustrations over the recent news that Bengals will not be wearing throwbacks during the NFL’s upcoming 100th anniversary season. After that, things start to get off the rails quickly and end with us making plans to create our own country.
Riverfront Radio is back with another great episode. On today’s podcast we talk about the recent Reds struggles, and our love/hate of their throwback uniforms. We also get into whether Geno Suarez getting plunked by a Pirates pitcher was on purpose or not. We’re also going to have to monitor Jeff’s health during the upcoming week; he’s got some issues. Enjoy the show.
