BP hit himself with pitches the other night.
I think we have hit them twice, no response.

Did Nicasio throw 96-97 when he was a starter with the Rockies? Wow.

Tom Servo
04-29-2016, 07:14 PM
I think Votto is breaking out of the slump, the next step is extra base hits.

Cozart looked like the old Cozart and Votto like the old Votto in the first inning ;)

Tom Servo

Quick 1-2-3 inning for Straily.

Tom Servo

Papa Bruce with a double to leadoff the 2nd.

Schebler playing the long game to get to the .850 OPS that TRF was telling us about. ;)

If part of the plan is getting an .850 OPS in Louisville, it's starting to work.

Tom Servo
04-29-2016, 07:38 PM
Straily suddenly gets into trouble with no outs in the 2nd, an 0-2 pool cue single by Marte and now a walk to Cervelli.

But he gets Polanco to weakly ground into a Yesiree DP!

Straily K's Harrison and made him look silly. Two scoreless.

Cozart seems to have regressed this game. Popping straight up. Oh well.

Tom Servo

Bloop single, sac bunt, walk, strikeout, bloop single. 1-0 Bucs.

I really think Straily could be a solid starter if he could shave the BB/9 a bit down.

Tom Servo
04-29-2016, 08:00 PM
Wow! Great dive and throw by Suarez to get the final out!

The Operator
04-29-2016, 08:00 PM

On an inside fastball. Good to see.

Nothing doing after Votto's leadoff walk, Bruce was robbed of a seeing-eye single on a nice play by Harrison.

Did you SEE the way he pulled himself up by the boot straps after that strikeout in his first at-bat, then made an OUTSTANDING defensive play, and THEN followed that up with a homerun his next time up? I mean, the guy is flat-out UNBELIEVABLE! Gracious.

Pirates have scouted the Reds well, no?

Cozart bats with a runner on 3rd.

The idea of George at a Star Wars convention amuses me.

Ron Madden

Good inning turned in by Straily.

Tom Servo

Alright Reds offense, time to get on the board.

Suarez down on 3 pitches lol

and Votto K's too for strikeout #8 for Nicasio. Looking like it might be a cap-tipping night.

KronoRed
04-29-2016, 08:51 PM
Oh Boy, Hoover!

Tom Servo
04-29-2016, 08:52 PM
Straily with a K to start the 6th but a double down the line has action in the bullpen in the form of JJ Hoover. Reds giving you a heads up that you can imminently switch to the NFL Draft.

Straily doing alright.

In outside news the Mets just scored 12 in the 3rd and Cespedes knocked in 6 of them. (Fernando Tatis isn't impressed)

Tom Servo

That might be it for Straily, a nice start. 6 innings, 5 hits, 3 walks, 5 strikeouts, 2 earned runs.

Reds have had three or four high scoring games this year. Otherwise, the offense has been quite poor.

Since April 21, the Reds have scored, 0, 1, 13, 0, 3, 3, 2. Then 0 tonight so far.

All losses except the 13 game. And tonight isn't over.

Tom Servo
04-29-2016, 09:19 PM
Hoover has given up 5 home runs in April. Only Brett Oberholtzer has given up more as a reliever, and only Tim Melville gave up as many in fewer innings than Hoover.

I don't know where Pacheco will play. He plays several positions.

Hamilton's at bat was disappointing. Seemed obvious that he was hoping to walk there. Not a big league approach. You accept a walk, gladly, but you have to be prepared to swing the bat.

Wow. 2 outs and a 3-run lead and Hurdle goes to Melancon just because "save situation".

I hate the save statistic.

WVRedsFan
04-29-2016, 09:48 PM
Hurdle changing pitchers. I listened to his pre-game show and thought of the comparison of Price and Hurdle back to back. I don't like Hurdle at all, but as a baseball man, he stands tall above Price.

Big Klu

Some positives, like a good start from Straily, nice defense from Suarez, and a nice game from Votto. No more JJ Hoover tho pls.

WVRedsFan
04-30-2016, 01:34 AM
Really, I think the rebuild is better than I thought. Without Disco, Homer, and others, the team has won 9 games--more than I thought, and I wouldn't be surprised if they lost the next six, but it still is brutal. The continuing play of Schebler mystifies me. He needs more time in the minors. I feel like Billy Hamilton is a lost cause unless he's on the team to run the bases or as a late-game defensive replacement and it's time to make him that specialist. Despite the manager's belief that JJ Hoover is a tremendous talent, he's not. Limiting the playing time of Cozart (after tonight's performance, maybe not), should not be limited and the same goes for Rocco. That's just my opinion of course, but Mes will never get his groove playing two games and sitting out. I predicted the Reds to win 61 and lose 101. I think that's still realistic, and won't improve much as the season goes along. Yes, it's depressing, and for an old guy, painful.

I thought Straily looked quite good. Potentially a very underrated pickup there, as he could help in a variety of ways and is still in his 20s.
