Episode 6: A guy named Bumpus and will we ever find an ace

June 5, 2017

We solve the mystery of who in the world was Bumpus Jones and why we care, continue to lament the state of our starting pitching and discuss what we appreciate about this year's team. Tune in and hear why Ron Oester is an old favorite of Tom's, what in the world xFIP is (we're still not sure) and join the conversation of what might happen at the trade deadline.


Episode 5: We might be old but we’re optimistic Reds can stay in the hunt

May 29, 2017

The starting rotation continues to keep our Reds under .500, but we believe in the lineup and hold onto hope that our real starting pitchers will one day make an appearance and save the season. We look back and talk about Gary Redus, start a new segment on explaining one of the fancy new metrics that have taken over baseball analysis and make a fearless prediction. Most importantly we learn the importance of batting .270.


Episode 4: Last week is lost to history, now give us Wojo

May 22, 2017

We're a man down this week, but we muddle through without Tom kinda like the Reds are getting by without their best starters. Yes, we talk about Mike Lum, Wojo, Mesoraco and Arroyo's future. And we pick on Tom just because he wasn't here to defend himself.


Episode 3: Nervous about what the next 6 days hold for the Reds

May 15, 2017

Fresh off a downer weekend in San Francisco, the guys look hopefully toward three games at Wrigley followed by three games at home against the West-leading Rockies. They also look ahead to what the lineup and rotation might look like post-All-Star break with and without Cozart. And a little All-Star game voting talk even though Tom thinks ballots shouldn't be available till June 1. He's serious.


Episode 2: Waking up in first place will be fun while it lasts

May 8, 2017

We talk about the shock of waking up in first place even though it's only May and probably won't last. But we're fans, so that's what we do. We come back to earth and discuss the starting rotation that will hold this club back, find out that Jeff's affinity for Schebler has a rival in Kim's fondness for the abilities of Scooter Gennett. And Tom answers last week's trivia question with a little help from his friends.


Episode 1: Reds fans for life and why Jeff loves Schebler

April 29, 2017

In our first episode, we share how we each became a Reds fan, why Tom and Kim are convinced that Zack Cozart should bat second and why Jeff roots for Scott Schebler to be the long-term solution in right field.
