The Cincinnati Reds Reach the Ten Win Threshold For First Time Since 2017

All it took was the Mets batting out of order, killing a 2-out scoring opportunity and Adam Duvall hitting his first career walk-off home run in extra innings in front of a 1/3 capacity crowd at GABP.

Baby, we’re back.

They said it couldn’t be done, and to be honest, I was starting to believe them. Howevah, the Reds did what seemed impossible today as they hit the 10 win mark for the first time since 2017. Things weren’t looking great early on, but a managerial shakeup and shuffling of the lineup finally got the hometown team over the hump.

Not to mention, they also acquired Matt Harvey just moments before dinner on Tuesday night, so I’m thinking that adds about 100ish wins to the current Reds lineup. Before you know it, we could be talking playoff tickets and deciding which soul crushing way we prefer to be eliminated in the NLCS at the hands of the New York Reds-Mets.

Let’s not get ahead of ourselves though. Let’s focus on getting win #11 (shoutout Barry Larkin) before June. That might require Jesse Winker leading off on a regular basis though, so we might be looking at a July ETA on the coveted 11th tally in the win column.

On today’s episode of the Nati Boys podcast, we discuss AJ Green’s recent fight with Jalen Ramsey, as well as a couple other fights that went on in the NFL this past weekend.  There were also some interesting comments made by Miko Grimes about Derek Carr, and Deion Sanders has beef with Tony Romo.  We all feel bad for Lamar Odom, who was recently seen slumped over in a club, and we pay respects to Roy Halladay who tragically passed away this week.  We end the show with our fantasy draft of 30 for 30 films we’d love to see made.  Enjoy the show!

Wake Up With Whitty – 11/5/2017

Good Morning and welcome to another edition of Wake Up With Whitty.  It’s the end of Daylight Saving Time, so if you haven’t already, make sure you set your microwave’s clock back an hour.  And if you have any other clocks in your house that don’t set themselves automatically then you need to re-evaluate your life choices.  I always have a hard time wrapping my mind around whether I’m getting extra time or if I’m losing time.  And the people that don’t even take part in Daylight Saving Time?  Are they living in the future? Or the past?  Time travel is a complex, confusing concept.  All I know is if for some reason this blog post isn’t available when you would normally expect it, it’s because it got lost in the Daylight Saving Time time warp.  Sorry.

Nati Boys #30: NFL Trade Deadline

img_3509-1

We saw some fairly big names change teams at this year’s NFL trade deadline but the biggest story of the week may have been the one trade that didn’t get made, thanks in large part to the Browns inability to use email properly.  The Nati Boys discuss that plus some notable injuries in the NFL.  We also give the latest update on Zeke’s suspension, and we give you our Week 9 NFL picks.  We all take a little bit of joy in the Cavs’ early season struggles, and Draymond is up to his old tricks as he finds himself in yet another scuffle on the court.  We play a little choose your own adventure with Game 7 of the World Series and we wrap up the show with a fantasy draft of our favorite candies in honor of Halloween earlier this week.
