  1. Cingrani had a rough outing in St. Louis today. And why the hell was Brandon Phillips bunting with no outs and Hamilton on 2nd!?
  2. Other than money, there's no reason for the Reds to be playing in Arizona, and I say this as a Reds fan living in Arizona. Cleveland makes sense because there's a relatively large presence of transplants from Northeastern Ohio. Goodyear Stadium, only five years old, has been outclassed by other newer spring training facilities (Salt River Fields and Cubs Park in particular) and the tickets are way too expensive for games that are essentially meaningless. I can get better seats for cheaper at Chase Field in Phoenix (Diamondbacks stadium) for about half the price of what it costs to attend spring training games.
  3. The schedule for April and May is killer. If they can make it out of the first two months with a .500 record, I'll be happy.
  4. Most of the Ohio transplants in Ohio hail from Central/Northeast Ohio, hence the reason it makes sense for the Indians to return to spring training in Arizona. Cincinnatians, for the most part, go to Florida. Unless the Reds shared a park with one of the other spring training teams (a la the White Sox and D-Backs in Tucson, or the Royals/Rangers in Surprise), I don't think moving them from Florida to Arizona would do much to generate revenue beyond maybe the first season, and only then for the novelty of seeing Cincinnati play in Arizona. Even that's a longshot.
  5. For trashy mystery novels: Jonathan Valin's novels were set in Cincinnati
  6. I'm pretty sure my parents used to drink Goebel, or at least had one of their old signs hanging up in the garage.
  7. Was that the first time you cleaned the glove compartment this millenium? :-) Yeah, I also had a couple of business cards from Falhaber Nissan. Is that place still in business?
  8. Not good. My uncle worked for Dana and got layed off about two years ago.
  9. Tried Graeters for the first time ever last year (sad, considering I'd lived in Cincinnati for 13 years). Black Raspberry Chip is indeed damn good. I'll have to try the Buckeye Blitz the next time I'm in town.
  10. Cedar Point is definitely a bargain compared to other parks. Even with a Southern California discount, a park hopper pass for Disney Land/California Adventure is still $71, and its near $60 just to get into Disney Land.
  11. Haha, I was cleaning out the glove compartment in my car the other day and came across an old Genie receipt.
  12. Apparently its pretty close to being a go. Congrats to Nashville.
  13. I remember watching them play at the Gardens way back in the early 90s. Its one of the reasons I love minor league hockey and have never gotten into the NHL.
  14. Ohio Stadium, hands down. One of the best venues in the country to watch a sporting event.
