How do you screw up a moment like this? September 28, 2010 is a red-letter day in recent Cincinnati Reds history. I’m sure everyone reading this remembers what happened, but for fun, let’s review. Back when the Houston Astros were still in the National League Central, they and the Reds were locked in a 2-2 tie going into the bottom of the ninth inning at Great American Ball Park. Jay Bruce led off the inning against pitcher Tim Byrdak, and deposited the first pitch he saw over the wall in center field (and over the head of current Red Jason Bourgeois) for a walk off 3-2 Reds win....

To us the national pastime, for Cuba the national sport. Ni picha, ni cacha, ni deja batear. This phrase may as well have been invented to describe the relationship between Fidel Castro's Cuba and the United States during the past 50-plus years. But what's interesting is that even if you don't speak a lick of Spanish, you can probably decipher three words in that phrase which are central to the message, at least if you are a baseball fan. And that is not by coincidence. In Cuba, as trite as it might sound, baseball is more than just a game. As hinted at (not so subtly) in the title,...
Here's the thread over at OTM. Here's the link to the game on YouTube. Use that link to fire up the game at 9PM EST, and have fun. Or, at least as much fun as you can have knowing what's to come.
Tracking down the hottest of hot links for your Friday perusal. The San Diego Padres traded for Justin Upton. Just when you thought the Padres already had ample corner OF depth thanks to having Seth Smith and Carlos Quentin already under contract and the recent acquisitions of Wil Myers & Matt Kemp, respectively, the Friars went out and picked up Justin Upton from the Atlanta Braves this morning to add to their oddly positioned, talented OF glut. For one, this means either Kemp or Myers may end up playing CF (rendering Cameron Maybin's defense and contract expendable), and also that...
How did the manager do this year? With the 2014 season firmly in the rear view and shrinking rapidly, there is one factor that hasn’t been discussed much: the performance of the Reds’ brand new manager, Bryan Price. While it’s unlikely that any manager could have overcome the flawed roster and rash of injuries that lead to the 2014 Reds finishing as they did, how did Price do in his first year managing at any level? Is it even possible to sift through the factors outside of his control and determine how good or bad of a job he did? Well, it better be, because we’re taking a poll!...

Johnny Manziel hesitated against the Cincinnati Bengals, and it cost him: Chalk Talk with Andrew Moses (video)
The Bengals defense totally changed its tendencies and only blitzed twice the entire game. Instead, Cincinnati rushed four or five defenders, trying to maintain disciplined pass-rush lanes. That left no easy pathway for Johnny Manziel to get out of the pocket and extend plays with his feet.
