It’s great to have Brandon Phillips back in a Reds uniform, but were you wondering how he looked in green?  Nicholas Studios passed along several photos of Brandon from his recent rehab outing with the Reds’ Class-A Dayton Dragons.  Take a look…

Our latest Ice Bucket Challenger: Mat Latos!


I’ve recently been organizing all of my Reds stuff that I’ve accumulated over the years and came across Riverfront Stadium seats that I purchased following the ballpark’s implosion in 2002.  The seats have been in storage for over a decade because I never had the brackets and floor mounts that would actually allow me to sit in them.

But a few days ago, I came across a guy named Ben Archer who specializes in such things.  He runs a web site called Archer Seating and has set up a web page especially for Better Off Red readers who also need help with their Riverfront/Cinergy seats.

Wow Jamie Ramsey captured my Grandson with Brandon Phillips at the Dayton Dragons Game….Sweet! 2nd photo boy with blue hair.

Holy crap…Is that Pat Melvin in the last photo with you (and Carline Rose)? He’s a Vermonter who plays bass for a lot of great bands and artists up here…Imagine my surprise seeing someone I know from Vermont while reading your blog about the Reds…

Sure is, Ric!

We’ve updated the page a bit…hopefully your readers find it helpful. It’ll be good to see those seats mounted finally, I’m sure. Thanks Jamie!
