Reds relievers haven’t allowed a run since 6/28 at Tex…the active 9-game (24.2ip) scoreless streak ties the franchise record for consecutive scoreless games by the bullpen…also was accomplished from 6/3- 6/14, 1971 (20.2ip) and then again from 5/3-5/13, 1987 (28ip)…courtesy Elias.
I’m not sure if you saw THIS yet or not, but it’s a pretty touching story by C. Trent Rosecrans that appeared in USA Today. Great gesture by Joey.
RIP Mr. Crews.
From the department of “Expect Good News,” Mark Sheldon gives us an update on Sean Marshall.
Now for some housekeeping…
Last week, you may have saw, I experimented with something called “BOR-TV.” If you didn’t see any of the episodes, check one out here.
I enjoyed putting together the segments, but it does take some time. So, what I need to know is, should I continue to move forward with BOR-TV? Let me know in the poll below. Thanks for the feedback.
That’s all for now. Enjoy the game tonight…and while you’re watching, take note of the outfield wall at Turner Field. It’s the only one I can think of that goes “uninterrupted” from foul pole to foul pole (no nooks or crannies).
Expect good news!
