New Season

It’s be a while since i have posted on here, life and college got in the way. I did get married and moved in September. Now I’am getting used to the good ol’ college life. I’am majoring in broadcasting and communications. So i will keep up this blog up and running for that sake. Now a few things about the Reds upcoming season and a few news to note.

1.) The wife and I became season ticket holder’s this year. ( we purchased a 20 game weekend plan )

so this year, the blog will be focused on mainly the games we attend at Great American BallPark and Clippers Stadium ( Columbus Clippers ).

I be writing about the overall game and take lot’s of pictures. I will also write about various topics through out the season. The last thing i will write about Reds Home Promotional games. Each Sunday i will give a detailed post about what promotional games that are upcoming that week.

Today’s New’s

Mat Lato’s ( Marlins Pitcher ) did a interview with national baseball writer Ken Rosenthal. Let’s just say he was to kind in his words during his interview with Ken. You can read the interview HERE .

A Few quotes that I found interesting were..

You look at the Reds after we lost Bronson (Arroyo, after the 2013 season). Everything went to s—. You look at it after we lost Scott Rolen (after 2012). Everything went to s—. When Scott was there, we had guys doing exactly what they were supposed to do. After Scott left, we had guys with two years in the big leagues, in the clubhouse, on their phones, laying down in the video room, just hanging out during games, not in the dugout, not cheering their teammates on. Our dugout looked like a ghost town.

After Bronson, the same exact thing. We had starters in there roping our (clubhouse attendants), like, cattle-roping our clubbies. Guys on their computers, buying stuff, hanging out in the clubhouse. We had a guy with a year-and-a-half in the big leagues wandering around the clubhouse, hanging out. We had a closer in there sleeping until the seventh inning. We lose that veteran leadership, that’s what happens. You can’t have that … it turns into a circus.

( That was taken right from the article ) Source: http://www.foxsports.com/mlb/just-a-bit-outside/story/mat-latos-miami-marlins-new-pitcher-interview-cincinnati-reds-022215

Below is what #Reds had to say about the fiasco

From C. Trent via the enquirer Reds comments on Latos

I think the Reds will move on this and Just win, I do think that this will light a fire in lot of the player’s. Mat should have kept his mouth shut, if he had a problem with Reds he didn’t step up and say anything while he was here. It will be interesting in June when the Marlins come to Cincinnati. I believe that I have tickets to, two of those game’s.

Until next time,
