Soo glad Ramon is gone

I have this application for my iPhone that cost me like ten bucks that allows me to listen to all the games and I was listening to the Reds-Mets game on the way back to my apartment. Dang, Ramon gets stolen off way too easily. Had been stolen off twice in two innings. It is too bad that he stank up the joint for us. That first year he looked to be a good one but then again so did Javy Lopez.

I'm not a Ramon fan, but I'm guessing they got a good jump on the P.

No idea. First guy to get a steal was Reyes who's a good base stealer and then Ryan Church whom I am not sure what kind of speed and base running ability he has. Don't know what Aaron Harang's movement to the plate is like either.

So, I'm watching the Reds/Mets game, and there is Ramon, already a base stolen on him, a past ball. Mets announcers already questioning some of the pitch calling.

Well, bless his heart. I hope he makes it with the Reds. I hope he does well there.

wow, I was so excited when we drafted Darnell, I thought he would be the next big thing to happen to the O's. Boy was I wrong!

Thta man should have stuck with Football. I beleive he turned downthe UT longhorns to sign with the O's. He wouldhave had more success in football. IMO. But I too wish him well.

Anybody else seeing the number of bats that have split almost down the middle in this game? Is the maple bat thing not going to get resolved until somebody gets turned into a kabob?

I've read about a protective film they could use to coat the bats, keeping the bat together even if it breaks. Seems like a good idea to me.

Those steals were on the pitcher, not Ramon, and he nearly got Reyes on that first steal of the game. I can't imagine what this game has been like for either team when it's not even 40F here while raining most of the afternoon. That's just miserable for Opening day. :(

And what is this.....dump on the Reds day here?! Geesh. :angryfire:

    • Because Mateo should start in CF and Urias belongs on the bench as much as possible, and just started on Monday. Jackson had some better AB's last night and should be given the chance to build on them, if he is being given the opportunity to work his way out of this.
    • There’s only one or two posters I know of who have seriously suggested extending Means, and that was during the offseason before his delayed start to 2024 and rocky rehab.  yark14 is crazy if he thinks anyone but him will be clamoring for a Means extension after 2-3 starts.   He could throw 20 shutout innings and I doubt there would be much clamor.  Let’s see Means get through the remainder of the season healthy and then we can worry about whether we want him to be part of the team in 2025.   
    • It's when a large market (non-revenue sharing recipient team) finishes low in the standings, it limits their draft slot.  Hard to differentiate between sucking on purpose or more organic reasons...  but the large market teams can at least band-aid the issue with money.
    • Those were two crappy plays and each one resulted in a runner advancing to 2B.   The burden of proof is on Kjerstad to show he’s better than O’Hearn out there.   He sure didn’t prove it last night.  
    • Nothing was working yet he threw a lot of strikes, had 7 Ks, only walked 1 and had a swingstr% of 25%. Plenty was working.  However, he had way too many hittable pitches as well. Wild in the strike zone. 6 days rest may have been a little too much as well.
    • Well, given his injury history, please put me down in the camp for a big no to any extension for John Means. If we are going to pay for pitching beyond this season (which we should and probably will have to) I am very confident that we will be able to find better than I guy who hasn’t been healthy since 2021. Extending him after 2 or 3 starts after he has missed 2 years seems to be the definition of unwise.
    • Yep.  Wading through pages of drama just for the next nugget is tiring...
