Since we’re back online, here’s a game thread for tonight. Luke Hudson is getting his first start of the season (Elizardo Ramirez was sent down to AAA to make room).

How’s Luke going to look tonight? That’s the question.

    This series has been like the Reds playing the Reds.

    Good to see the offensive explosion…I really hope that tehy saved a few runs for the Orioles over the weekend.

    Well, Luke wasn’t exactly great, but he did keep the Reds in the game. Let’s pray that he’ll give the pitching staff a boost in the same direction that WMP gave the offense.

    I just remembered the next series was against Baltimore. Then depression set in.

    Had a nice evening at the game last night – saw the hall of fame for the first time – enjoyed some Skyline & a Brat. Good Times.

    Hey, as an added bonus, the boys in Red won. Double Good Times.

    16,000+ there last night. I stayed to the end. I was walking out of the stadium and it seemed like 25,000 people were there.

    I heard Tracey Jones mention the other day on his radio show that Milton’s fastball was down in the range of 84 mph. Last year it was said to bee around 88 to 90. For whatever reason, it appears that Milton is not throwing nearly as hard as he was last year. Maybe its something in the water because as I recall, loss of velocity was also both Graves and Wilson’s problems. We know Wilson has been hurt and we suspect Graves also damaged his arm. Can Milton have the same problem?

    I think they got that “pitch to contact” thing down pat.
