  1. A much needed win for the Reds and need to sweep the 4 game series.  Good to see the bullpen pitch 4 scoreless innings.  The disappointing part was Gray was given a 7-0 lead after 2 but couldn't get past the 5th  inning.  Just seems like Gray is just not his usual self this year.  Also the offense went asleep after the second inning and didn't score after that inning.

    But how long would that last if all of the best high school kids started going to the various pro leagues and D1 basketball became a slight step up from intermural ball?

    I don't think it would go down at all.  The top teams would still get the best players available and compete for championships.  When guys could go straight to the NBA it didn't hurt college basketball at all.

    After a horrible beginning to the season leading to a enormous era, Luis has now worked it down to 4.09.  Though that's far from great, I would really be curious to know what his era is for his last 10 to 12 starts.

    So, just saw that his era for last 6 starts is 1.69...nice!

    Since June 1 his era is 1.91.  He should have another 3 or 4 wins if the bullpen had not blown leads

    So I would think pro basketball has enough options where they couldn't care less if college basketball survives...as a matter of fact, it would probably benefit them by herding a lot of college basketball fans into watching NBA alternatives like G league...which is money in their pocket...

    I know the NFL makes droves of money, but setting some minor league up would seem to me to be a costly venture simply based on player/coach/admin numbers, playing site access, and lack of viable leagues now...I'd think the NFL would like to keep the status quo...

    I wouldn't watch the g league even if there is no college basketball

      I root for teams and not individuals so I would have no interest in any minor league basketball

  5. When you couldn't think David Bell could be more stupid he never fails to surprise you.  Up 5-4 in the 9th he brings in Hembree and his 2-5 record and his 4.79 era.  He walks to the first two batters who were hitting .177 and .217.  After a K he gives up a 3 run homer and lost the game.  They are playing the Twins who is 44-62.  Also the Twins have the worst bullpen on the AL but the Reds couldn't score against them on 4 innings.

    They have 3 new bullpen guys and Lorenzen is back.  Those 4 gas combined to pitch 13 innings and gave up 1 unearned run.  Cessa gave a run up in extra innings because someone was already on second.  Hembree had given up runs in 3 straight games and walked the first batter in each game.  So why I'm the hell does Bell have Hembree come in for a save.

    Also the Reds need to play every game on the road since they are 6 games above .500 on the road and 1 game under at home.

    Who was the biggest free agent we have acquired? Look at this list and tell me how you expect to win a title when this is the best you can get.  1. David West 2. Bojan Bogdanovic 3. CJ Miles 4. Darren Collinson 5. Tyreke Evans  Let's be real...that is pretty dang sad those are the top free agent signings in the past 15 years.

    Did a sign and trade for Brogdon

    Location definitely plays a factor, but I also view the Pacers as a franchise that is going to pretty much play it safe financially and not willing to go "all in" when it comes to the luxury tax when they have a chance to go for it. 

    I don't think even if they were willing to over pay that they would get top free agents to come.

    Who else did the get? They'll do a S&T for Lowry and Duncan Robinson was their own players so the salary cap doesn't matter there. 

    PJ Tucker at 2/15 and signed Butler to a max extension.

    I guess it is just frustrating as a Pacers fan this time of the year.  When you know they won't go over the salary cap and see all of these other teams making huge signings is just frustrating

    I like what Miami has done too, though I still think it leaves them behind Brooklyn and Milwaukee, and potentially Philly if Simmons figures it out. 

    I guess I don't understand how the salary cap works.  On the NBA network just now said the Heat had no salary room yet they were able to sign and trade for all of these players.  I know on the trade the salaries has to match but they were still able to sign other players

    I agree. I don't know a whole lot about the logistics of baseball... but it does seem the Reds are right there. No idea who's contract is up and what not... but this Reds team, this year... is a solid one. 

    Stephenson and India are so solid. Keep Winker and Castellanos. Seems like there's a young dude or two in Triple A that might be ready to go game 1 next year. 

    Castellanos more than likely will opt out after this year and probably get more than the Reds can pay

  11. Even thought the 3 guys they got on trades are an upgrade but none are a dominant closer.  They have no closer on this team and why I wished they would have tried for Kimbrel. They have really no shot to put a sustain streak together to get back in the race because of the bullpen. They had a chance to ight to make up ground on the Brewers.  Also the last time I checked the Padres was losing so we could have gotten within 3 games of the wild card.

  12. Bullpen blew another game.  Lorenzen pitched a dominant 8th inning on only 12 pitches and should have given him a shot the 9th inning.  Mets bullpen with no runs in 5 innings and the Reds bullpen 2 runs in 3 innings.  Reds was up 4-1 going to the 6th but could never put add on runs on the board.

  13. Well the Mets scored a run to tie the game and now going to the 10th.  Bell puts in Hembree and walked the first guy and a wild pitch got him to second.  Struck out the next two then Bell brings in Doolittle to face a LH hitter who is the best KJ against a lefty pitcher.  Doolittle gave up a single to tie the game.  Why trade for 3 new relievers not to use them.  Those three had put pitched 4 scoreless innings but he brings in the old guys who hasn't got tn job done

     

  14. I like seeing the Reds putting together a good streak and hope they can keep winning.  What is bad is that they have went 4-1 and had lost a half game in the standings.  There best chance to make the playoffs might be the wild card.  Right now they would be in first place in the NL East
