After spending an exotic stay-cation in the far-reaches of Southwestern Ohio, it’s nice to finally be back in Better Off Red Headquarters.

A big thanks to all of the folks who filled in during my absence, especially the interns who’ve now been safely sent back to their cages.

Let’s catch up, shall we?……

Don’t  forget the Reds Tweet-Up taking place this Friday, May 10 at Great American Ball Park.  The Reds host the Brewers at 7:10 and for just 30 bucks, you get a Field Box ticket and a pretty cool #JoeyVotto #FaceOfMLB T-shirt.  For more details, CLICK HERE.


Tomorrow night (Tuesday, May 7) the Reds take on the Braves and we’re going to have another #BORScore scorekeeping session on Twitter.  Whether you’re a seasoned scorekeeper or an ambitious beginner, I’ll lead the way for Tuesday’s tilt against Atlanta.  Simply follow along on Twitter at @Jamieblog with the hashtag #BORScore and I’ll show you what to do and give you Twitter pic updates of my scorecard.

The last time we did this, the Reds scored 11 runs.

Remember back in the day when the Beach Boys used to perform concerts at Riverfront Stadium?  Seems like forever ago, doesn’t it?  Well, they’re coming back to Cincinnati on Sunday, May 26 to play at Great American Ball Park following the Reds/Cubs game!

How cool is this?!  Kings Island now has a Reds Hall of Fame Grille!  Suh-Weet.  Check it out….


The Reds next victory will mark Dusty Baker’s 1,600th as a manager.  He’s currently tied with his former skipper Tommy Lasorda for 18th on the all-time wins list.  Ten of the managers ahead of Dusty and Tommy on that list are in the National Baseball Hall of Fame.


At 18-14, the Redlegs are season-high 4.0 games over .500 for the third time this season.  With a 12-4 mark at GABP, the Reds are tied with the Yankees for the most home wins in the Majors.


Finally, here’s a video of Scout picking on Grace

More stuff in a bit.

Expect good news!
