Found March 14, 2013 on Online Sports Guys:
PLAYERS: Pete Rose
TEAMS: Cincinnati Reds
((ht: Haha! This one is bound to further endear me to my friends in Cincinnati. One of our favorite baseball sites, Hardball Talk, found a TV commercial for a Cincinnati Furniture store that featured acting only slightly more wooden then the actual furniture. They feature Cincinnati Reds legend Pete Rose and his wife trying to act interested in buying products from Muenchen's (Yes, Munchin's) furniture. Notice the deep emotion, feel the genuine love, the desire for new, exciting furniture. If this doesn't scream Emmy, we don't know what does...

Pete Rose stars in awesome furniture store ad

Major League Baseball’s legendary outcast, Pete Rose, and his adoring wife, Kiana Kim, have to keep the money rolling in somehow, so what better way to get a quick and easy paycheck than by starring in a local, low budget commercial for a furniture store? And seriously, this bad boy has it all. Hackneyed acting? Check. Horrible production values? Awkward posing and absurd dialog...

Prospect Retrospective: Joey Votto

Joey Votto was drafted out of Richview Collegiate Institute in Toronto by the Cincinnati Reds in the 2nd round, 44th overall, in the 2002 MLB Draft at age 18. While in high school, Votto had spent most of his time at third base, but also saw time his senior season as a catcher. When his name was called at the draft he was announced as a catcher. Scouting reports on Votto out of high...

Pete Rose stars in bizarre furniture spot

In this schadenfreudey world of ours, the notion of Charlie Hustle pitching Paula Deen furniture sounds humorously ironic, one of those things you watch with a slight grin on your face and—in the deep recesses of your psyche—a pang of respect due to the refreshing candor of a fallen star. Turns out it’s just depressing as hell. by Dan from via Barstool Sports...

Video: Several Reds talk about the Aroldis Chapman question

Your browser does not support iframes. The most hotly-debated question this spring has been what to do about Aroldis Chapman. Should he start or should he close? Or should we all just grab a Frisch's Big Boy and a scoop of Graeter's Ice Cream and relax? Here in this video are several members of the Reds discussing their thoughts on the matter. They include shortstop...

Projecting the Pensacola Blue Wahoos roster

Infield Catcher - Tucker Barnhart Barnhart will likely return to Pensacola for a second go of things after struggling in his initial time with the Blue Wahoos. The 22-year-old hit just .200/.262/.292 in 41 games last year at the Double-A level. He really struggled offensively, but he was very strong on the defensive side of things where he is among the best in all of the minors....

Pete Rose and Kiana Kim show off their acting skills in furniture ad

Incredibly, Pete Rose and Playboy model fiance Kiana Kim's reality show Hits & Mrs. was shelved after one season.  In fact, it barely made it through one season.  The last two episodes were moved from TLC to something called Destination America so as to prevent as many people from watching the abomination as possible. Keep in mind this is the same network that gleefully...

Shin-Soo Choo drawing high praise from teammate Jay Bruce

The Redlegs (5-12) had their three-game winning streak snapped by the San Francisco Giants (7-8) on Wednesday. Cincinnati fell, 9-5, to the reigning World Series champs in Goodyear. Bronson Arroyo started and limited the Giants to one earned run over four innings. On the contrary, Pedro Villarreal surrendered seven hits and six runs in relief. Villarreal managed to record just...

Thursday news and notes

Billy Hamilton is dealing with a hamstring issue and is currently unable to play. It doesn’t sound too serious, but for a guy who relies on his legs for his game, it is worth noting and following. Hopefully it isn’t anything that lingers throughout the spring as it could really hold him back at the start of the year. The Reds lost yesterday to the Giants 9-5. Here are the minor...

Reds limericks in honor of St. Patrick's Day

by: Dan Howard Staff Writer Now that the Cardinals have selected Francis 1 to be their leader, what are they going to do with Mike Matheny? (Insert rim shot here.) In honor of St. Patrick’s Day this Sunday, I thought I’d become Irish this week and provide a few cheesy Reds limericks. Thanks to Vivian Ooten, and Dr. Jack Ward for their input. At first base is Joey...

Daugherty lends support to Chapman as starter

On occasion, I’ve made fun of Cincinnati Enquirer columnist Paul Daugherty for his terrible excuse for sports writing. So I suppose it’s only fair that I point out a time when he writes something that doesn’t suck monkey balls. If you believe Aroldis Chapman is a starting pitcher, this ain’t for you. If you think the way Dusty Baker thinks, read on. I swore I wouldn’t type...

Yoenis Cespedes reunites with mother, family after stressful year

For over a year, Oakland A’s outfielder Yoenis Cespedes had hardly any idea of where his mother, Estella Milanes, and 11 of his family members were or where they might end up. Cespedes defected from Cuba to the Dominican Republic in the summer of 2011 to pursue a career in professional baseball. The 26-year-old has succeeded, but prior to this week he had done so at the expense...

Pete Rose stars in probably the most clownish furniture ad you’ll ever see

This Pete Rose furniture commercial is literally the worst/greatest thing we here at Gamedayr may have ever seen ... Enjoy!

Arroyo is "Old Man" of Reds Roster

Last season Bronson Arroyo was again a big part of the Reds rotation. The durable veteran quietly kept his team in games while eating up innings like he’s done for several seasons. The Reds have some top pitching prospects at the top of their pipeline, but this season they’ll continue to rely on Arroyo every fifth day.

Giants' Zito, Reds' Arroyo have solid outings

Barry Zito allowed a run while pitching 3 1-3 innings and Bronson Arroyo gave up one earned run in four in the San Francisco Giants' 9-5 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday. Zito gave up five hits and struck out three for the Giants in an outing against the team the World Series champions rallied from a 2-0 deficit to beat in a best-of-five NL playoff series. Reds left...
