Yesterday I joined the folks at 1450 The Sports Buzz to talk about the Reds, continuing our ongoing relationship with the Afternoon Drive crew in Louisville.
You can catch us on 1450 every Wednesday, right around 3:20 PM eastern. Each mod at RR will make an appearance at some point, as we're rotating week-by-week. You can listen online at 1450TheSportsBuzz.com.
The Reds were in the middle of their disappointing loss to the Cardinals as we hit the air. Brandon Phillips had just tied the game with an RBI double and Homer Bailey was pitching quite well. By the time the interview ended, Bailey had given up the lead and the Reds failed to mount a comeback.
Trevor kicked off the segment asking about Bailey's appearance. I did my best to jinx Bad Name for a Pitcher, by praising his performance. Like most fans, Trevor is concerned with the offense. I offered my thoughts on their struggles at the plate, proposing that the Reds hitters show more patience at the plate.
We also discussed the multitude of injuries the Reds are facing, the emergence Tony Cingrani, Donald Lutz, the Mark Teahen signing, the perceived "road woes" for the Reds, and I provide "grades" for several players after one month of baseball.
Give it a listen, please?
I come in at the 13:30 mark:
