The tarp is still on the field, which to me suggests this game will not start on time, which would be in 20 minutes.

Votto walks, bases loaded with no outs to start this baby.

I might be wrong, but I seriously doubt he was stealing on his own. My guess is that he was given the sign to steal.

I don't think anyone is ever anointed anything longterm, you always have to keep proving yourself.

I remember a lot of people wondering if Frazier was really an everyday player after his lackluster 2013.

Just tuned in and I have got to say, Jose Peraza looks like the love child of Billy Hamilton and Joey Votto. Not that he plays like it necessarily, just physically looks like it.

Tom Servo
05-14-2016, 08:21 PM
Sure looked to me like Peraza got jobbed on what would have been a four pitch walk

He lined out softly to first

Chuckie
05-14-2016, 08:21 PM
Peraza's beard game is on point. That counts for something.

A rare good defensive play from Ryan Howard.

TheBigLebowski
05-14-2016, 08:21 PM

I saw strikes 1 and 2 as clear balls.

3-0 to Peraza was ball 4. Thanks ump!

Big Klu
05-14-2016, 08:24 PM
Seemed to me that Goeddel's hit to CF might have been catchable.

Chuckie
05-14-2016, 08:24 PM
Aaron New Orleans Louisiana looks nervous at the plate.

Phils steal on Adleman.

But NOLA gets the bunt down.

Chuckie
05-14-2016, 08:26 PM
Bourjos would probably hit better if he correctly pronounced his own last name. JMO.

Adleman with a 3-pitch K of BOAR-jess.

The dude needs to go French.

Tom Servo
05-14-2016, 08:27 PM

Bourjos and Bourgeois, the dream team outfield.

Baton Rouge is so close, though, that it seems a shame.

05-14-2016, 08:30 PM
Heck of a pitching job by Adleman to get out of that jam.

Chuckie
05-14-2016, 08:30 PM
Adleman has a fantastic beard. Anyone who thinks this doesn't matter just doesn't get it.

Does Tim Melville have a beard? Of course not. See?

Tom Servo
05-14-2016, 08:30 PM
Nice tight rope work by Adleman. Invariably he will fall, but I'll certainly take it for now.

Big Klu
05-14-2016, 08:30 PM
Bourjos and Bourgeois, the dream team outfield.

Honestly, I think I would prefer Jason Bourgeois.

Ron Madden
05-14-2016, 08:30 PM
I like Adleman..:)

Tom Servo
05-14-2016, 08:35 PM
Nola looks to be settling in, which heightens the fact that the Reds blew their big chance, but at least if they get handcuffed here it's to a good pitcher. It's the flailing wildly at a guy who has never been that good in Hellickson that bugs me.

Bruce with a two-out single.

05-14-2016, 08:37 PM

Have you met Peraza's and Adelman's wives? Why do you think they are beards? Seems like a touchy subject to bring up in a game thread.

Chuckie

Stop pressing Geno. Just let it flow.

Chuckie
05-14-2016, 08:38 PM
Suarez is trying to hard with his beard. Likely part of the problem.

Tom Servo
05-14-2016, 08:41 PM
I wouldn't recommend walking Cesar Hernandez to start an inning.

Ron Madden
05-14-2016, 08:43 PM
Adleman isn't giving Tuck much of a chance to throw theses guys out.
but Reds get the call

Tom Servo
05-14-2016, 08:44 PM
Adleman needs to do a better job of holding runners on.

Reds get the call though!

Tom Servo
05-14-2016, 08:47 PM
Man, Duvall is gonna hear it from the Philly fans after that wipe out.

- - - Updated - - -

Ryan Howard double off the wall and we have a tie game at 1-1. Adleman's luck running out a bit.

But he rebounds with a strikeout and flyout to escape further damage.

Talk about Adleman's "hitch" all you want. I attribute a lot of his success to the beard.

Incorrect. His "chin strap" beard game is tight.

Nola is good, Reds missed their chance.

Tom Servo

Adleman, ahead of Nola 0-2, and walks him in a nine pitch at-bat.

I...would not recommend that.

Herrera singles up the middle, Phils take the lead. 1st and 3rd with one out.

2017 draft pick position? Secured.

Tom Servo

And Adleman has fallen off the tight rope, single with eyes scores another run to make it 3-1 Phillies.

Tom Servo
05-14-2016, 09:11 PM
Bullpen up, not sure I agree at 62 pitches and 'just' 3 runs in. Adleman's a big boy/non-prospect, let the man eat some innings.

Tom Servo
05-14-2016, 09:13 PM
Adleman does avoid more damage by getting the big guns Franco and Howard out. I'd send him back out for the 6th.

Chuckie
05-14-2016, 09:17 PM
What the hell is Votto doing?

On the 0-1 count, he just backed out of the box. WTH?

Ron Madden

Tom Servo
05-14-2016, 09:27 PM
Could have done without the walk, but a nice two strikeout inning from Cotham.

Chuckie
05-14-2016, 09:28 PM

Tom Servo
05-14-2016, 09:45 PM
Nola is a good reminder that a college starter who throws strikes might not be as sexy as a high schooler throwing 97 mph, but the payoff can still be much higher. I think Eric Lauer in this year's draft could be that guy, unfortunately pitching so well that he probably won't be there for the Reds second pick.

- - - Updated - - -

Pachecho, Holt, De Jesus.

Pacheco, DeJesus, and Holt. Cabrera (a switch-hitter) was the only left-handed option, and a lefty was probably the best bet there.

Too early for that isn't it....and Ondrusek was good early on

LO was the worst location pitcher I've ever seen in the Reds pen. Had some nasty stuff that carried him thru some seasons/situations, but completely clueless about how to locate it.

The stadiums should devise a setup of cameras to thoroughly cover the outfield wall and bases. If the calls are going to rely so much on the camera angles, the system should be designed to do the job.

He's looked alright. Single in his first at-bat, should have had a walk in his second at-bat if not for the umpire. Groundout and strikeout in his last two PAs.

All the cameras are network cameras tho right? Unless the MLB comes in and totally installs their own in every stadium just for replay purposes, and the networks kept using their own just for the broadcast.

Seems like a lot and I'd rather do away with replay, but hey any way to improve works for me.

Then replay is meaningless if we're playing "guess where it lands." WTH is the point? The guy touched it (clearly) in play. Shouldn't matter where it *may* have wound up. He touched a live ball in play. There's no questioning that.

Honestly I'm fine with the human element in umpiring/referring in sports.

Having watched the NFL and MLB before and after replay, I can confirm that I got just as mad about bad calls as I have gotten about replays that still end in a bad call.

Lets keep the game moving please.

btw, NBA is the absolute worst cuz all their stuff is happening in the final 2 mins when the pressure and intensity is at its peak.

Same here. The cost we've paid in delays and calls that were STILL blown after replay aren't worth it. Let the umpires/officials do their thing and the chips fall where they may.

That was a great throw and catch. If we're gonna lose on a guy getting thrown out at home, I'm fine losing on a play like that. LF made a perfect throw and kudos to that catcher for holding on, Suarez drilled him.

I'm glad it wasn't ruled blocking for a lot of reasons, but mainly because the game ended on a play worthy of ending a game. Had that been overturned on some technicality it'd have felt dirty.

Phillies broadcast says the catcher had to go in front of the plate to catch the ball, horse puckey. I saw at least one angle where he had one foot in front of the plate well before the ball gets there. That's blocking the plate and Suarez should have been called safe by rule...

... But honestly the rule is stupid. I hate the Posey rule ... If Suarez gets popped for this it's ridiculous... I think NY didn't want a Philly riot and the umps had dinner plans.

Maybe that's the price of rebuilding, but I don't see the talent in the pitching staff, as well as the hitters like we saw tonight in Philly and at Houston last year. I'm probably impatient and pessimistic, but I'm really confused about where this team is going.
