Talking draft, I think the odds on favorite to reach the majors first is Logan Shore, the Friday night starter at the University of Florida. But he'll be selected in the teens because he's very much like Leake in that the stuff is there to get major league hitters out but it isn't likely to get much better than it is now.

This is why I also thought Lamb would be a terrific reliever. The ability to have two innings like that.

Last year, as a starter, he would get bogged down in the middle of the game. Maybe he's beyond that, we'll see.

Adams ALWAYS beats the shift.

Hopefully this means he's fully healthy now. He's gone from 10.5 K/9 last year to 4.7 K/9 this year. 10.5 is unrealistic, but he'll see his strikeouts rise and could be an effective starter if he can maintain 91 - 93

I'm not counting any chickens, I tend to agree he profiles as a reliever. But the velocity tonight is very encouraging. When he can throw a 93 mph fastball to go with his breaking stuff instead of 89, it makes a difference.

Interesting at bat by Duvall. Didn't jump on the first pitch. Took a couple of pitches. But didn't delay very much, jumping on the third pitch for a nice single up the middle.

Something about Duvall I like. Just get the feeling he knows what he's doing up there.

Jerko makes it to second on a BP error

WrongVerb

I'm not understanding why he's still pitching. Even going out for the 8th, it should have been with the edict that he wasn't going to pitch from the stretch.

I still like Leake. Underrated imo, even if "average", he was consistently solid and always good for 200 IP, which in itself is underrated.

Phillips gets the error, but Edwin Suarez gets the assist.

No, we have to teach him a lesson.

The Operator
06-07-2016, 09:14 PM
fielders choice and BP throws the ball past Votto, runner to second.

In Phillips' defense, Suarez's throw to him was awful. 1 out

Inning should be over. Wow.

Price gonna Price. Gotta learn to pitch when you're ineffective, or something.

Seriously Phillips?!?!?

Brutal error. 1st and 3rd.

This inning should be OVER but Lamb exits with 1 out.

Great start no matter what.

And now that I'm in and watching maybe Reds can blow this

The Operator
06-07-2016, 09:17 PM
That's honestly one of the worst errors I've ever seen BP make. Was he trying to pimp it or something?

Tom Servo
06-07-2016, 09:17 PM

I'd be annoyed, but honestly Lamb's start was much more important to me than if the Reds win or lose.

Cannon

Yep, Leake was one of my favourite players. Really tough to see him pitching for scum.

Sac fly, 2 outs. 6-2 Reds

Chris went out of his way to jinx Wood on that "Doesn't let inherited runners score" thing.

Price with a double switch.

Cingrani in to pitch, hitting 4th.
Holt to RF, hitting 9th.
Bruce out of the game. (Don't know about that move.)

Good work Cingrani! 6-4 good guys after 7.5

I think so. Price wouldn't have made a double switch if that weren't the plan.

Holt K's

The Operator
06-07-2016, 09:50 PM
If MLB is really worried about speeding up the game, they should talk to Broxton. He makes Steve Trachsel seem quick.


On the bright side, 32 pitches for Broxton in Game 1 off the series is a good thing.

Mutaman
06-07-2016, 09:51 PM
With Wright possibly out for the year, and the Metises having offensive problems, wouldn't it be worth making a call and seeing if they would give us something for Suarez?

The Operator
06-07-2016, 09:53 PM

This is a tough call. Can make a case that his hand is on A. Hugh's foot/ankle. Not really sure. My hunch is it stands as safe.
