People are still wearing ROSE 14 jerseys in that park.

Might as well wear a Cosby shirt.

We caught a game in Cincy in May, and there are references to Rose ALL OVER that stadium, and not all of it is overt. The pizza stand is LaRosa's, the ice cream stand was named after Rosie, the lady version of the mascot. There is a big Rose garden with a white rose bush on the spot where the record-breaking hit landed at Riverfront. And then there is a new statue of Rose in a heads-first slide that was debuted this season.

That said, it's a really nice place to see a game!

"Penn Station" brand subs sound absolutely disgusting. Who thought this was a good idea?

Or we can send him up there to flail at what should have been ball four.

This game has been really dull ... but at least it's overly long.
Every great cause begins as a movement, becomes a business, and eventually degenerates into a racket.

Florrie was afraid Hammie's speed. And that triggers a massive rally.

Just you be you, Flores.

Well, the Reds have used a catcher-turned-pitcher in this game. Why not the Mets?

Don't we have 20 pitchers on the roster?

With all due respect to Josh, whom I like, I think that Wayne has done a very good job tonight.

Plawecki looked good on the mound, at least.
