The next 5 games are gonna be a big indication of how good the reds really are.  I'll be happy if they can go 3 and 2, 4 and 1 would be huge.  1 and 4 would seem like the same reds we're used to.

I agree. The next week or so will say a lot of things.


THE REDS ARE ON FIRE!!! CAN THEY BE STOPPED!!!??? ... LOL

I'm going to the game this Friday to watch the Red's take on the lethal Roy "O", anyone else coming? There's like 12 of us going unless anyone backs out.

That's gonna be a tough game.  The reds better put up some big numbers early.  I'll be listening at work.

What a great game so far...it's 2-1 Reds right now, and the Reds have manufactured both their runs.  Very fun game to watch - great pitching, great fundamental ball (except for Dunn in left, of course)...definitely great fun so far.  Go Reds!

A nervous night (thanks to the Hooters), but the Reds own the best record in baseball!  And the Cards are losing to the Nats, so we may hold the best record overnight, not just for a couple hours!

The pitching has been good the past week. Hopefully it's a sign of the times. Ohh And that homerun looked foul.

I'm pretty sure that homerun was a foul. I was sitting in the bleachers in leftfield. Sometimes I wish the MLB reviewed plays like the NFL does.

From the crappy replays I saw, it looked like it was going to hit the pole, which means it would have been a home run.  Regardless, I hope the fan was kicked out of the game and banned from returning this season.  Maybe even a hefty fine for good measure.

  Why? It's not like a player had a chance to catch it. It would have hit the pole regardless of whether the guy caught it or not.
   Anyway, GO REDS!!!!!!!!!!! :clap: :clap:

Interfering with a ball in play.  Nobody could have caught it, but it may or may not have been a home run.  I think you're right, that it would have hit the pole, but it shouldn't be a question.  But that's just my opinion...but indeed, go Reds!  This is just an amazing run, and a whole lot of fun!

you guys might be getting sick of me by now, but the FSN Detroit did the same exact thing. Funny how FSN holds back with teams, until they are doing better

We finally sweep the Cardinals and I can't be at either game. Its time for Cincinnati to get out to the ballpark with the best team in baseball! 25,000 is not enough, lets get 30k for next game and I will be there.

Well it's only a 3 game losing streak..;) It's not the end of the world. I'm just glad the pitching has come around. Hopefully it stays. If it does. It's going to be a fun summer.

After years of mediocrity, this is a nice change of pace for the Reds, but I'm doubtful it'll last past the all-star break.  Who knows, they were pretty hot last July and August, and they finally cleaned out the front office and brought in people who know how to manage a baseball team, especially one as rich in history as the Reds.

Yeah, very nice to see the bats coming alive.  It was just a matter of time - and now we just need to keep the pitching going like it was and there will be a real possibility of being strong enough by the All-Star break to see Castellini come through on his promise to go out and buy some help...and then, who knows?

This team just does not have it. I'm sure they givin away at least 6 games already.Tonight was just terrible.
1. we need a closer.
2. We need a major league manager. This guy continues to make minor league mistakes.
3. Worst defence of any team i have EVER seen. And i'm not kidding.
4. At least we are not Kansas City.

Great story!!!

Reds revamp diamonds
Neglected city baseball fields fixed for kids

BY DUSTIN DOW | ENQUIRER STAFF WRITER

Bill Blevins pours sandy-colored rocks from two paper cups onto a boardroom table at the Cincinnati Recreation Commission headquarters.  Some are small pebbles; others are the size of a golf ball or a cell phone - all collected in minutes from a local baseball field.  Blevins explains his goal: For 18 once-downtrodden inner-city baseball diamonds, he wants to find clay far superior to the dirt that contained the rocks on the table.

Blevins' inspiration comes from the men sitting across the table, who control $130,000 that the Cincinnati Reds Community Fund is supplying to restore the fields.  The money is giving 1,300 kids ages 5-15 on 85 inner-city teams safer, more enjoyable and better-looking fields that can be used more frequently.  Reds owner Bob Castellini has pushed for the organization to be more community-oriented, which is why the nonprofit arm of the Reds initially donated $15,000 this spring, enabling the commission to get unsightly fields ready for play in April.
