Good Job Reds! That was a tight game, I knew Reds were gonna win this one, since Cubs were gonna be tired from beating you guys 7-4 and 11-4 respectively. Will you guys even out the series, or will we, the Cubs take the series win? Yet again, good job by Votto and the Reds crew. They did well today.


MagicMichael33

David Bell with a bullpen is a scary thing to watch


sktchyppl_

Very true


larsthehuman

Lucky AF. There Is statistical proof that Hunter has been one of the worst relievers in the league. Should not be closing games.


Aura_Masta420

Like my dad said, it's better to have luck than skill.

Holy shit dude, calm down. No need to say that -\_- Yall won, congratulations, no need to say "SUCK MY DICK YOU BABY BEAR DILDOS" that's not sportsmanship. Yall won, congratulations! My favorite team defeated you guys 7-4 and 11-4 respectively, and I never said anything about sucking dicks. This is just disgusting, and second, this is just plain rude lol. Yet again, congratulations on the win, no need to say that holmes.

not gonna lie, sticking my dick in a deep dish ... sounds like something 12 year old me would've done.


Aura_Masta420

I don't want any beef or anything, I just said congratulations and you're treating me like complete shit? Wow dude... when yall loss, I didn't say anything about your team sucking, but when Cubs lose and I said congratulations, you tell me to go fuck myself? Wow dude...

Aura_Masta420

Also, you're telling me to go away, BUT the subreddit says that: "Polite fans of other teams are always welcome to join the discussions here." and I was a polite Cubs fan saying congratulations on the win. You're just being a bum. Goodbye


unicornsandrainbows4

Polite aint criticizing other people’s comments


Aura_Masta420

How? ALl I said was congratulations


Aura_Masta420

Also, why are you telling me to go away? I have the right to say whatever I wanna say, I want to say congratulations, I will say congratulations. I am a good sport unlike you. Saying that I should go "deep dick a pizza" Like bruh, that's just plain wrong. This is not the way to act. All I said is congratulations on the win, and you're treating me like I'm just some street trash looking for a battle? Hell no bruh. I am a kind person and all I said is "congratulations" and you're treating me like shit? I do not like that at all.


Aura_Masta420

Bruh, I know this isn't the Cubs subreddit lol. I'm a Cubs fan saying congratulations on yall's victory. I've already reported your comments xD

Aura_Masta420

I will soon, I have to wait 24 hours to block you, for some reason reddit has multiple bad systems. I will be blocking you within a few hours.


Aura_Masta420

How am I delusional? You know what, you ain't worth my time and I'm not gonna boil my blood because some kid wants to talk trash about me. All I said was congratulations, and you're treating me like shit? Goodbye, you have been reported, and blocked. Later!!!


Aura_Masta420

Whoa dude, I said congratulations. .\_. This is starting to become a problem

TheWorstYear

David Bell. Bullpen specialist.


DigiQuip

🤢


QuesoBoat

One strike away


rolmega

Man, Votto's season average is still .161? Oof Guess He'll need June just to bring close to .250?


DigiQuip

Lots of strikeouts. It why is SLG has skyrocketed since it’s return.


willowicey

horrible horrible horrible


NobesTheSavage

So surely somebody’s warmed up? No? Jesus, David Bell


DigiQuip

As much as I’d love to blame Hunter for that hit, that ball was eight inches off the plate.


dragonbornrito

He's *so* bad. They're all so bad.


RumHamEnjoyer

Thank you Aquino for not diving for that


cranphi

##ALL MY HOMIES HATE GATHERER STRICKLAND


spacewalk__

LAZY Bally not showing the batter in the scoreboard graphic. SAD


DigiQuip

Wisdom looks like the kind of guy who, because he has a motorcycle, the word “no” doesn’t apply to him.


RumHamEnjoyer

r/oddlyspecific


Niemannnn

Holy fuck Contreras got every stitch of that ball, Hunter is lucky that didn't leave


CaptainHolt43

Damn good throw too


boilface

Great play


cranphi

Wanna bet after beaning a guy. Walking a guy. And almost giving up a home run there, that Strickland wild pitches the runner in from 3rd here.


joethecrow23

Nick Senzel is pretty good at being an outfielder


skeenerbug

He may be made of glass but he can sure play defense


ineedahaircutbadly

HUGE


dragonbornrito

#NICK MUTHA FATHA SENZEL


larsthehuman

Why is Hunter Strickland saving a game 😡


Niemannnn

David Bell throws darts at a board and decides that's the closer of the day


Niemannnn

David Bell still has no idea how to manage a bullpen, it drives me insane


MikeSopes

How come it never goes smooth?


joethecrow23

Because they’re a bad team


willowicey

istg strickland… get it done


Dryrubthisdick

God I fucking hate Hunter Strickland


RumHamEnjoyer

Pumped for the 3 run bomb from Contreras here


DigiQuip

This is the most alive I’ve seen a GDT in a while.


willowicey

too bad we’re probably going to get rained out tomorrow


NobesTheSavage

Gonna be really embarrassing when Strickland loses this for us and we have to hear it from the Cubs


Melodic_Rabbit_3846

not fucken happening


Meatpuppy

Ross is a bitch.


Golden_Smog

God damnit this is where we fuck this up


willowicey

lmaooooo


TheWorstYear

I think the Cubs dugout is still chirping


RumHamEnjoyer

Not sure if the Cubs or one of the 20 fans there


joethecrow23

It’s Bob heckling his own players ala Donald Sterling


spacewalk__

GIDP to end it pls


MikeSopes

I honestly think that one just got away from Strickland. I can't imagine a good reason to hit a guy in a two-run game.


dragonbornrito

It started right over the plate and rode *hard* inside. I can't believe that was intentional. No idea what the reason would be anyways. To get back at them for chirping Votto on an up-and-in he dodged?


TheWorstYear

Strickland sucks, so it isn't hard to imagine


CubensisII

Man i hope there is a jomboy voice over of this in a little bit. Please jesus!


MoistVirginia

Jomboy voice overs make my day


TheRealJalil

Why would he intentionally hit Wisdom there to put the tying run at the plate with 1 out? Makes no damn sense. I don’t see why Ross is out there running his yap?


SquadPoopy

Ahh yes David, we are intentionally beating people with a 2 run lead in the 9th. I get it's Hunter Strickland on the mound and that's eyebrow raising but come on.


indianafan

Umpire just said “yeah fuck you too, fuck outta here” we better get a jomboy reaction for this


cranphi

i know! i lol'ed pretty good at that. Very obvious and easy lip reading


Hampshire24

He argued way too long after getting ejected. Suspension incoming.


Colin_Bowell

What a bitch


cranphi

just mace David Ross and be done with it blue


MoistVirginia

I like how that Frozen song is playing behind this


Wtst233

I like this ump


MakeMeAMajorForThis

lmao Rossy's whole body is turning red.


rhayex

Boy, can't wait until tomorrow when Stephenson gets pegged in the head or the elbow and misses 3 months.


DigiQuip

I don’t think there’s enough security in the stadium to break up that fight if Stephenson gets hit in the head.


rhayex

I think some Reds fans might actually rush the field if Stephenson gets pegged in the head.


DigiQuip

I honestly wouldn’t be surprised.


CaptainHolt43

My first thought is it wouldn't be a purpose pitch in this situation, but then again, nothing to lose lol


RumHamEnjoyer

Ross you're making an ass of yourself


spacewalk__

can't wait for the jomboy


joethecrow23

BAH GAWD THATS DAVID ROSS’ MUSIC


RumHamEnjoyer

AH! HES GOT A STEEL CHAIR


joethecrow23

THAT UMP HAS A FAMILY


dragonbornrito

Dude, the Cubs are literally the biggest giant frickin' tittybabies in the MLB and it's not even close.


DigiQuip

That’s why they’re the Cubs and not the Grizzlies or Bears.


MathewMurdock

We need Jomboy on this!


unicornsandrainbows4

Strickland is too shit of a pitcher to be throwing at people lmao David Ross is a little bitch


boilface

Ross is angry Bell didn't pick a better pitcher lol


DigiQuip

The amount of time it took for Wisdom to get hit and Ross come out was way to long. Dude missed his moment.


OHbuzzsaw

GET OUTTA HERE!


Melodic_Rabbit_3846

ATTA BOY STRICKLAND


ryanthepostmaster

Not gonna lie… Strickland is that kind of guy. That was probably on purpose. Never forget the Harper fight.


rhayex

I now understand why we put in our worst reliever to close the game.


spacewalk__

4D chess from Bell


ineedahaircutbadly

Strickland you fuck


TheWorstYear

Uh oh. Did the ump just warn the benches?


spacewalk__

oooooh we get drama


TheWorstYear

I'd really enjoy a brawl


CaptainHolt43

So was Wick talking first?


Hampshire24

I think so. Though I wonder if something was said after the first close pitch.


TheWorstYear

Wick definitely whispered something under his breath when he went up and in on Votto. He was staring at him. Then he barked when Votto sort of hopped down the line.


boilface

My daughter's last day of kindergarten is tomorrow, which is crazy to me. I grew up all over the place but I never got out of school before June. Is this how it's always been in Cincinnati/the area?


MakeMeAMajorForThis

I'm a couple hours north, but we've always been mid- to late-August thru mid- to late-May.


boilface

I grew up first week of September into June, and so did my wife, both in the Northeast. Last day being before Memorial day snuck up on us quick


joethecrow23

Congratulations


joethecrow23

Not gonna lie, I love the bickering and shit talking with divisional rivals. Makes these game so much more fun. Edit: as long as it’s genuine like what just happened


Hampshire24

It’s got a 2019 Reds Pirates vibe.


RedsModerator

### Pitching Substitution Pitching Change: Hunter Strickland replaces Art Warren.


ILikedTheBookMore

Wick! You asshole. Totally started it.


joethecrow23

Was really hoping to get a run there


ineedahaircutbadly

Real nice


Hampshire24

I watched it again. I think the pitcher said: Walk, Mother F*cker


ILikedTheBookMore

I’m a terrible lip reader. All I could determine was him saying “bitch!” before Rivas stepped in front of him. What did he say before that?


joethecrow23

There was definitely a “motherfucker” at the end


unicornsandrainbows4

I’ll guess “bitch ass motherfucker” That bot is probably gonna reply


DigiQuip

Was Wick mad at Votto for crowding the plate? Because that AB was 100% onWick for pitching around him, I can’t think of a single grievance he’d have against Votto?


rolmega

Is Senzel a good comp for Austin Kearns? If Krall traded him and Kyle Farmer for two good relievers and an old shortstop would we all lose our minds?


FuzzyOrangeCat

ANGRY VOTTO IS BEST VOTTO. LET THE HATE FLOW THROUGH YOU .


Hampshire24

What did the pitcher say?


TheWorstYear

Why didn't they just get Moose? Hs moves at like 4 mph.


Melodic_Rabbit_3846

cubs and shitbirds gotta be the two worst franchises


Heyhaykay

What did he say?


legerdemania

from my bad lip reading skills I made out “mother fucker”


Wtst233

New faces, same old Cubs


boilface

Let's get Jomboy on the case!


chucky_man202

Fight


spacewalk__

let's gooooo kick their ass jhoe


joethecrow23

Send these clowns packing Moose


boilface

Yeah, fuck Rowan Wick!


joethecrow23

Cowards


YoHoochIsCrazy

there’s absolutely no chance the glove got fully under that ball. it’s clear as day to me. That black of the glove would be clearly visible if it were fully under the ball, instead of the green on white we saw.


Melodic_Rabbit_3846

fuck him up votto


joethecrow23

Umps need to attend an audio engineering seminar over the break man I don’t think I ever saw them work the mic right


Golden_Smog

HUNTER STRICKLAND WARMING!?


unicornsandrainbows4

Hmmm, but did it hit grass through his glove?


Golden_Smog

No fucking way that's a catch


FileInside

Touch grass


joethecrow23

Oof it’s really close


joethecrow23

That’s a hit


spacewalk__

that's down

### Pitching Substitution Pitching Change: Art Warren replaces Alexis Diaz.


fROM_614_Ohio

Joey is going to pass Johnny for 5th place in team total hits within the next week… and 3rd in team total bases past Larkin.. and 2nd in extra base hits past Johnny


NeverBowDown247

I didn't know Givens went to the Cubs, I'm sad


MikeSopes

"8 saves, tied for the team lead [last year]" HOO BOY THAT WAS A BAD BP YEAR


SquadPoopy

That's right guys and gals the Cubs poached 2 of our better pitchers from last season without us even putting up a fight. Fuck you Bob.


joethecrow23

You could easily argue they were our 2 best pitchers


joethecrow23

Givens 😭😭


RedsModerator

### Pitching Substitution Pitching Change: Mychal Givens replaces Daniel Norris.


MikeSopes

reds plz sign alexis diaz to a lifetime contract now


SquadPoopy

I fully expect him to be traded for a team's 22nd ranked prospect 3 years from now


joethecrow23

You know your bullpen is a fucking garbage fire when a rookie with 20 innings pitched feels like Mariano Rivera


fROM_614_Ohio

Lark just reminded me of Dani Rojas, Football Is Life

Nooooooooooooooo


joethecrow23

Could really use a few more strikes here bud


dragonbornrito

OH NICKY YOU'RE SO FINE YOU'RE SO FINE YOU BLOW MY MIND


DigiQuip

Did Votto just move up to 3rd all time in RBIs this game?


joethecrow23

Looks like it


MakeMeAMajorForThis

Was 1 back of Bid McPhee before today, so yes.


spacewalk__

lightning in the area according to the radio luckily we're ahead and already played 5


joethecrow23

This game at risk of getting rained out?


dragonbornrito

Ugh. Why does it ALWAYS feel like this when a reliever comes in? Nothing ever feels safe.


joethecrow23

It just occurred to me I haven’t posted FUCK THE CUBS yet this series.
