Today on KSR: Aristides Aquino Goes Yard, Again



The Reds’ playoff hopes may have died, but nobody told that to Aristides Aquino.

Since the big righty was called up from AAA Louisville, Aquino has hit EIGHT home runs in 12 games. A day after going yard in three consecutive innings, one of which went 452 feet, he punished a line drive over the right centerfield wall at Nationals Park. Nobody has ever hit more homers in the first 12 games than Aristides.

I’ve got a fever. The only prescription is more Aristides (until football returns to television).

Speaking of football…

Talkin’ Bout Practice…

This afternoon Eddie Gran and the rest of the UK offense will speak to the media following practice No. 10 at Kentucky football training camp. It sounded like they got the best of the defense on Saturday. I’ll let you know exactly how they assessed the film shortly after lunch.

…Except for Tate Martell

As the Cats and the Miami Hurricanes hit the field, one highly-touted prospect is reportedly staying on the sideline. The day former UK commit Jarren Williams beat out Tate Martell for the title QB1, 247’s Andrew Ivins reports the Ohio State transfer did not practice for Miami. If you are shocked by the news, you probably don’t know much about Martell. What a goober.

HOLY Josh Christopher!

You can’t say the UK target “put somebody on a poster.” That doesn’t do the dunk justice. He stole someone’s soul at the Drew League.

The Louisville Stripper Scandal will Never End

Just when you thought Katina Powell’s parties would be put in the past, we learn more from the Breaking Cardinal Rules saga. Former chairman of the board of trustees at UofL, David Grissom, said under oath that a university trustee provided the cash for the strippers. He did not provide any further details, but did say he learned that information from former president Jim Ramsey. Will anything come of this? Probably not, but it’s still ridiculous.

Scandalous Specialists

Picture day at McNeese State got a little wacky when the specialists took the field.

    What the hell is going on with the McNeese State football team?

    I’m pretty sure the reds are still in it when it comes to winning the division. I’ve seen 6-10 game leads in divisions go away faster than a twister would take your socks off

      The Reds blew the best chance they will get the rest of the season when they lost a game they should have won vs the Cubs on Sunday. That was the difference between gaining two games on the Cubs or just treading water. It could still happen, but they haven’t done anything but choke all season when they get a chance to gain ground on the division leader.

      Can’t agree more clutch but there is still a chance

      Yep. After years of futility, a chance is all we as fans can ask.

    True Clutch. The future is bright though. And now with Disco struggling, they can never seem to get all five starters going at the same time. The major problem had been hitting this season, but Aquino seems to have tried to singlehandedly remedy that himself!

      I definitely agree that the future is bright. They have some FA decisions to make this off-season, but they have been smarter about not giving out long-term contracts to guys who are close to being washed up in recent years.
