St. Louis’ Keith Hernandez was Tom Seaver’s 3,000th strikeout victim.  

For correctly answering, Jamie Christy (@JamieChristyc7) has been randomly selected as this week’s winner.  Jamie will receive a brand new Better Off Red limited edition t-shirt and a mystery prize from BOR Headquarters.  Congrats Jamie!

Didn’t win?  Don’t sweat it.  We’ll play again next week.


And speaking of Better Off Red t-shirts, do you remember me asking you folks to send in photos of you wearing ’em? 

If you have a BOR shirt – and by this time, you probably do – put it on and take a photo of yourself and email it to me at .  I’ll post it right here on the blog. 

Here are a couple that I’ve already received…

If you haven’t heard, pitchers and catchers report to the Reds’ Player Development Complex in Goodyear, Arizona on Sunday, February 19. After physical examinations, they will work out later that afternoon. Position players will report Friday, February 24 and following physicals will work out that afternoon.

Basically what I’m saying is,  we’re going to have some baseball activity in 45 days! Or if you prefer, 1 month and 14 days – 6 weeks and 3 days – 31 weekdays.

Excited yet?


Lots of you are asking for the schedule of the 2012 Reds Caravan that will take place January 26-29.  As soon as we’re finished finalizing a few things, we’ll let you know the deets right here on BOR and on


That’s all I got for right now.  I’ll have more in a bit.

Thanks for logging on!  I really appreciate it. 

Go Reds!

Expect good news,




Where do I get a BOR t-shirt? Jimmy Church was wearing his last night!

Thank you for the information Jamie. Always good to have a guy on the inside telling us what is happening.🙂
