CINCINNATI (AP) — Quoting the Cincinnati Reds‘ longtime play-by-play announcer Kirby Puckett Jersey , the Ohio Supreme Court declared Tuesday that “this one belongs to the Reds.”The state’s high court ruled 5-2 that the Major League Baseball franchise is exempt from paying tax on the purchase of bobbleheads and other promotional items the team offers to ticket buyers.The opinion written by Justice Patrick Fischer warned that the ruling was specific to the case and might not apply for other sports organizations.But the Department of Taxation’s chief legal counsel, Matt Chafin, said the decision essentially shows professional teams how to avoid the “use tax” on promotional items.Reds spokesman Rob Butcher said the club is “happy with the outcome,” but is still reviewing the opinion.The department argued the bobbleheads should be taxed because they’re bought by the Reds as giveaways, not sold with tickets. The Reds argued they’re exempt because they resell the items as part of the ticket package and Ohio law exempts companies from paying tax on items they buy for resale.Fischer, a Cincinnati resident, led off the opinion with a long summary of Ohio’s role in baseball history beginning in 1869, when the Cincinnati Red Stockings became the first all-professional team. There are references to Hall of Famers from Ohio including players Cy Young, Mike Schmidt and Barry Larkin, to the 1975-76 “Big Red Machine” champions, and firsts such as Larry Doby of the Cleveland Indians becoming the first black American League player and to the first night game being played in Cincinnati.Then, in explaining the ruling, Fischer wrote that unlike a foul ball or a T-shirt shot into the stands (the Reds use a contraption nicknamed “Redzilla” to fire free T-shirts into the crowd) that fans have no expectation of receiving, they buy tickets for games that have been advertised as bobblehead games expecting to get the bobbleheads, which last season included All-Stars Joey Votto and Eugenio Suarez.“We accordingly conclude that the promotion items constituted things of value in exchange for which fans paid money that was included in the ticket prices,” the opinion stated.After quoting Reds’ broadcaster Marty Brennaman’s signature “this one belongs to the Reds,” Fischer also quoted Brennaman’s late broadcasting partner http://www.twinsfanproshop.com/authentic-byron-buxton-jersey , Joe Nuxhall, saying the justices were “rounding third and heading for home.”Dissenting Justice Mary DeGenaro wrote that the Reds were escaping sales tax or use tax on promotional items that generally apply to similar purchases. She pointed out that the Reds often limit the promotional items, such as free to the first 30,000 fans.She said a Reds official had testified that the Reds would “make accommodations” to remedy the situation, up to offering refunds to fans who complain about missing out. The way Tampa Bay’s Joey Wendle sees it, it’s really quite simple.“We’re having fun. We’re playing relaxed,” Wendle told a television audience after the Rays won their seventh game in a row — a 5-1 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Saturday night at The Trop.With the series already won, the Rays, eight games above .500 for the first time this season, send ace Blake Snell to the mound to face former teammate Nathan Eovaldi in Sunday’s series finale.Article continues below ...“We’re playing just good fun baseball, fundamentally sound,” Wendle said. “Our pitching staff just night after night, it’s just been unbelievable.“It seems like offensively we contribute one through nine — somebody’s coming up with the big hit every night.”And now, as Wendle and manager Kevin Cash talking about newfound confidence, they turn to Snell, who is 3-0 in August after coming off the disabled list, 7-1 in his last eight starts and 15-5 with a 2.07 ERA this season. He has also handled the first-place Red Sox to the tune of 2-0 with an 0.95 ERA in three starts.Last weekend at Fenway Park Ervin Santana Jersey , the Red Sox missed Snell, who pitched the finale of the series against the Yankees in the Bronx. The Red Sox won the first two games of that weekend series. The Rays won Sunday, ripped off four straight over the lowly Kansas City Royals and topped the Red Sox twice — by a combined count of 15-4.The club record for consecutive wins is 12 in 2004.“Our pitching … we’ve been on a nice little run here and it’s been outstanding,” Cash said. ” … Any time you go up against that team, that lineup, and you limit them offensively, you’re doing a lot of things correctly.”The Red Sox, who saw their lead over the Yankees shrink to seven games (six in the loss column), have not been swept in a series all season. They have lost five of their last seven games. They have lost a series for the first time in their last 15.“They’ve been throwing the ball well for a while,” Red Sox manager Alex Cora said of the Rays. “They throw the ball WELL here … we’re competing, but that’s good stuff over there. They have a lot to do with it.“Tomorrow, hey, we’ve got our hands full. He’s the guy … he’s been great against us. We’ll see how we react to it. We’ll go out there and compete. We’ve been good on getaway days and day games — you guys know all the stats — so it would be a good day to put everything together and finish this series and strong and turn the page on this stadium (for the year).”Eovaldi, acquired from the Rays in the deal that sent Jalen Beeks, winner of two of the Boston games in long relief, to St. Petersburg, started his Red Sox career with two scoreless outings but has had two bad starts of the last three. Overall http://www.twinsfanproshop.com/authentic-miguel-sano-jersey , he is 5-5 with a 3.81 ERA this season.Eovaldi has never faced the Rays, but Carlos Gomez is 4-for-11 (.364) against him. Kevin Kiermaier, the only other Tampa player to face the right-hander, is 1-for-6 (.167), but the hit is a home run.Tampa Bay’s Tommy Pham returned after suffering a dislocated finger earlier in the week and hit a home run in the win.Besides Sandy Leon, who is 6-for-10 (.600), the Red Sox have some ugly numbers against Snell in his young career. Mitch Moreland, who returned to the lineup Saturday after missing almost two full games with a knee bruise, is 0-for-12, Eduardo Nunez is 0-for-7, Jackie Bradley Jr. 1-for-11 (.091), Xander Bogaerts 2-for-15 (.133), J.D. Martinez 1-for-7 (.143) and Steve Pearce 2-for-9 (.222) against the left-hander.Martinez, who has flirted with the triple crown through much of the season, passed teammate Mookie Betts in batting average Saturday night — his two hits leaving him at .337. Betts fell to .335 with an 0-for-4.
