Got the game on ESPN2 up here. Was absolutely thrilled with the results on the field, great start for the team. They said the Reds scored at least one run in every home opener since 1953 when they were shut out, pretty awesome. Nice win.

For all of you complaining about not being able to retain Phillips due to Votto's contract...

I loved how we finished strong on offense and idk how many watched and I know it's only game 1 of the season but the combo of chapman and Marshall looks to be nasty...the days of a two run lead in the 9th and still pacing are over

Joey Votto....you are the man! With runners in scoring position, there are not many that are better.

Love the crowd enthusiasm!

Latos looked pretty good until the 5th. Lots of balls in the dirt. It's ok though. His first start of the season.

I know it's early but come on pitching...Latos didn't do well and Bronson needs to keep the ball down

Latos has a career 0-3 record against the Fish.

You need to get a DVR and you wont have that problem.

I love watching the walk-off wins, but I hope this isn't the theme of this team this year. We need to win convincingly and prove we've got what it takes to go all the way.

Could be 2/3 of Nasty Boys version II. Too bad Mad Dog got hurt.

Watched the Tigers game today, and they crowed about Fielder, and how that deal would be better than the one the Angels made. Wish you could reach through the screen and remind them we just signed one that could compete with Fielder, and he's a faster, better fielder as well as a clutch hitter. Votto's the man!

Aroldis looks like he's getting it together. I wish the pen was strong enough to have him in the rotation. He doesn't look like he's just up there chucking it as hard as he can anymore.

If, and it's a big IF, Jay Bruce can become more consistent with his greatness at the plate, this team could officially be considered loaded on offense. All it will take is a few lights to go on for guys like Bruce, Stubbs, Cozart, and Mesoraco, maybe even Heisey if he gets the chance and them BOOM: consistent offensive powerhouse in Cincy.
