Found October 04, 2012 on Redlegs Review:
I don't think this is what he meant by Thing 1 and Thing 2. The regular season is over and the Reds are getting ready to start the postseason. Since they tried some different things near the end of the season then why can’t we? Plus Jimmi is getting pretty busy so he can’t stop me. I don’t enjoy off days, but I suppose I understand their necessity especially to get ready for the playoffs. What is anyone supposed to do when the Reds aren’t playing though? I’ll try and liven things up just a bit and at least give you something to read for a few minutes. The following is a summary of the regular season somewhat in the stylings of one Theodor Guisel, aka, Dr. Seuss. Disclaimer: Don’t judge the rhyming pattern. I tried. If you do, then you’ve missed the point. Enjoy! There will be way more formal season recaps to come. ***** In a place that is really not far from your home, There’s a park in the city where Redlegs will roam. They’ll be pitching their balls and swinging ...

Pete Rose In Mandalay Bay Sportsbook Watching Homer Bailey’s No-Hitter? Looks Like It

That’s definitely Pete Rose in the Mandalay Bay sportsbook last week. The bigger issue here is if that’s a Cincinnati Reds game on the big screen. What other teams have a red hat with black bill? Another tidbit of interest is that this photo was uploaded September 28, which happens to be the night Homer Bailey threw the first Reds no-hitter since Tom Browning’s perfect game...

These Guys are Like Family

I was talking with Mrs. Diamond Hoggers tonight. We were talking about the impending baseball playoffs and the stress I’m feeling about the Reds. She mentioned that as long as her Yankees make the World Series she’ll be happy. And then she quickly had a turn of face. Like I pointed out in jingoistic fashion, this is really her team. Even if she doesn’t know it. How could...

The All-National League Central Team

The National League Central boasted its fair share of good players in 2012. In fact, there was a time during the season when it appeared the division would produce the MVP, Rookie of the Year, Cy Young winner, and the Manager of the Year, which would have been mighty impressive. But then Joey Votto got injured, the Pirates hit a nosedive, Johnny Cueto went through a...

Another year, another set of baseball playoffs without the Pirates. My own personal rooting interests in 2012 are, in order: A's Tigers Reds (I don't care what you say about Brandon Phillips, I like the Reds; I say the Reds being good is proof the Pirates can do it) Giants (why do my four favorite playoff teams play each other in the division...
