Here’s the latest edition…
@Jamieblog How is it determined where a player does their rehab assignment, whether they go to Louisville or Pensacola? #AskBOR
I took this question to Reds Vice President and Assistant General Manager Bob Miller, who told me that many factors determine where a player is assigned in the Reds minor league system to rehabilitate an injury. A few things he cited were weather conditions, where the team is playing and travel accommodations….also whether the city in which the team is playing has an IKEA store or not.
@Jamieblog – do the Reds heads and Reds Rookies clubs have booths set up in GABP? Coming sat and want to get my boys signed up
Yes. Reds Heads, Reds Rookies and Club Red are all sold in the Community Corner Booth, behind section 120.
@Jamieblog – my questions are whether there are more coke freestyle machines this year :-) #importantquestions #AskBOR
The lone Coke “freestyle machine” is located in the Kroger Sweet Spot on the main concourse near section 114.
@Jamieblog Are there any gluten free concession stands available this year? #askBOR
Unfortunately, there are no specific gluten-free concession stands at GABP this year. However, Reds manager Bryan Price consumes a gluten-free diet and it’s been rumored that if he takes the team to the playoffs, there will be a gluten-free stand named in his honor somewhere in the park in 2015. (“Fryin’ Bryan’s Greasy-Dripped Morsels”).
@Jamieblog Will the commemorative cups be around again this year? Loved it last year.
Not this year.
@Jamieblog people who are allergic to eggs, can substitutions be done for the bacon challenge? #lovebacon #hatedeath #mayo
Yes, eat a salad and simply tell your friends that you took the challenge. Otherwise, no substitutions.
@JamieBlog what are the chances we see @braunerhulk (Donald Lutz) in the next couple months? We could use consistent production in left #askbor
Donald is a Better Off Red favorite and a tremendous athlete with incredible power. As you may have read, Donald recently hit for the “cycle” for the third time in his minor league career. I wouldn’t be surprised if we see Donald with the big league club in September or perhaps before then if there is an injury or trade.
@Jamieblog How has the mood of the dugout/clubhouse changed with Bryan Price as manager vs. when Dusty was there? #ASKBOR
It’s hard for me to say. I haven’t been in the clubhouse much since Bryan has been the manager, and even if I was, most of the manager’s work goes on behind closed doors. I do know the new manager wants his team to be aggressive and play with an edge. So far the Reds really haven’t been “out of” any game in which they’ve played, for which I think the manager deserves some credit.
A big “thanks” to all of those who’ve recently started following @Jamieblog on Twitter!

The #Reds improve to 6-9 on the season. Last team to begin a season 6-9 and went on to win World Series was the 2003 Marlins.

Cueto’s complete game was the first for the Reds since Latos beat the Cards 7-2 on September 2, 2013
