    Cincinnati Reds Discussion

    The biggest problem is not a single pitcher has panned out over a full season so far. DeSclafani did, but he hasn't quite been the same since coming back from injury. Mahle was having a decent year, then he suddenly had a meltdown halfway through the season. Castillo was really disappointing early on, but he seems to have turned things around more recently. If those guys can have solid seasons next year and if the Reds are able to sign at least a #2 type pitcher, I'll be feeling pretty good about their chances next year.
  2. People like to make the FC Cincinnati/Reds comparison, but it doesn't really hold water. 1. The Reds are historically bad. They haven't had this many losses for consecutive seasons since the 1930s. 2. The Reds play 81 home games. This year FC Cincinnati plays 20. 3. FC Cincinnati is still a new thing and is on the verge of joining MLS. Plus they are a winning team right now. 4. The last time the Reds made the playoffs, average attendance was over 31,000. Tickets on average are much more expensive than for a FC Cincinnati game.

    FC Cincinnati Discussion

    Just heard on the news that FCC's training facility will be located at Expressway Park in Milford.
  4. And only 11 more days till the owner of Isadore's across the street retires. June 30th is the last day Is it closing when he retires? I haven't been there in awhile but it's always ranked pretty highly on my list of lunch buffets. I'll have to remember to swing by again. Is the buffet only at lunch? I've never been there, but would like to check it out before they close.
  5. Judging from the map marker in the article, it appears to be the lot to the north of city hall.
  6. I imagine they're going to use it as a way to squeeze more money out of the county/city. Hopefully it doesn't mean moving the venue onto lot 24.
  7. Does anyone have any pics they can post of Nation and the Broadway block it's on? Google streetview's pics are from 2014 and it looks like there is construction on an empty space between buildings, but I don't know what was built. Thanks. Jake has a photo of it in this thread, though it's from last year. https://www.urbanohio.com/forum/index.php/topic,17546.120.html
  8. These are good neighborhoods too but the only drawback is they lack walkable NBD such as the Westwood Town Hall area or Cheviot for that matter. Cheviot definitely should be kept in mind when looking at Westwood. It's NBD is almost completely intact, but it's not considered cool because of how blue collar it is.
  9. Just a few years ago I never would have considered moving to Westwood, but it's quickly moving up my list for the reasons you mentioned. If I were an investor, I'd be directing a lot of money towards Westwood.
  10. This is a pretty big deal for Westwood: Nation Kitchen and Bar shared a post. 40 mins · The cat's out of the bag... We're thrilled to have been awarded the opportunity to expand the Nation brand to the neighborhood of Westwood. What a beautiful building that we get to breathe life back into, we can't wait to get started! We hope you like burgers and beer over there! More info to come soon..
  11. How did you determine the center of each city? I'm actually wanting to do something similar with MLB stadiums, but I can't find any info on what the center of a particular city is or how to figure it out for myself.
  12. They are huge among people my age (20-30). You've probably heard Closer, it was in the top 5 from roughly November 2016 to March 2017. That's their most popular song, but I also really like Don't Let Me Down and Something Just Like This. It's basically pop EDM. The rest of their stuff is hit or miss for me. Their only album was a relative failure and they've released a number of songs this year, none of which made it in the top 40. Sick Boy is an ok song, though. It could be that people are tired of hearing them after how popular they were from 2015-2017.
  13. I saw them doing stuff behind the parking garage the last week of April. They may have just been removing trees.
  14. I implied that a huge outlay of public funds for a convention center expansion isn't a sound use of public funds. I said that tourism and convention business, even if it doubled, would continue to be an irrelevant fraction of the region's economy. Exactly. Your view that outsiders have no value to Cincinnati, even if they're just coming for the weekend or a conference, is widespread among Cincinnatians. Those attitudes are why Cincinnati has little tourism and convention trade. Cincinnati doesn't have a good convention hotel because Cincinnatians don't want one. They ask, 'why would I care? I live in Cincinnati, I don't care about a hotel I'll never stay in." They put pressure on government and local developers to create what they want...yet ANOTHER SPORTS STADIUM!, parking, and 'green space' that prevents anyone from developing parts of town they don't want developed. You're being honest and expressing views that are widespread in Cincinnati. Those views are the issue, not financial or infrastructure issues. There's no mystery here. Cincinnati is the way it is because a large block of Cincinnatians want it that way. Can you point out in bold where he said outsiders have no value to Cincinnati?
  15. What access points could be removed? We're dealing with three bridges plus Rt. 50. It would be a traffic nightmare to have everything funneled into/from 2nd and 3rd streets. As far as putting sections underground, there wouldn't be a noticeable benefit unless all sections were put underground. That part of downtown is never going to have a lot of activity unless you're able to hide all of the ramps.
