I still can't figure out why they just haven't put Pena on the DL. If you can't get healthy enough to start within 7-8 days, just take the full 15 and make sure you're healthy.

For those with MLB Audio, is it common for WLW not to give the stream until the game starts. I'm at work and I'm trying to get the reds broadcast, but the only one I can use is the Brewers.

Miley has started RA in every one of Wilsons starts, since he's a GB pitcher it's pretty obvious that Miley thinks RA is better suited than Lopez with Wilson on the mound.

I don't agree with his methods or his conclusions myself.

CincyRedsFan30

I guess Miley likes Aurilia's .258 OBP and .639 OPS over Felipe's .345 OBP and .883 OPS.

04-30-2005, 02:59 PM
The reason Aurilia played last night was because he has had great success vs the Brewers and at Miller Park (at least that was what shown last night during the game).

Did anyone see the pre-game interview with Ears? :lol:

Austin sure don't like being in front of a camera. He looked nervous as can be.

Can Freel do it four times a game? Can the Reds pitching hold the Brewers to three runs? I like seeing Freel make it happen. But you can scrape all game for a couple of small ball runs that can be wiped out in one inning. When your offense is scuffling anyway though, every little bit helps.

I can't blame Rich for taking 2 straight pitches from 3-0 for a guy with 60+ pitches making a spot start and having walked 2 guys already in the inning.

Jason LaRue has struck out 24 times in 56 at bats (not plate appearances, but at bats). That is one K every 2.33 times at bat.

With his walks and HBP's its 24 K's in 68 plate appearances, or once every 2.83 per plate appearance.

Moeller oughta be playing in a Cincy uniform. Wilson throws something like 7-8 straight balls and he swings at the first pitch.

With 2 outs and two runners on base, it's not unusual strategy to swing at the first pitch when a pitcher has been throwing a bunch of balls, especially when that pitcher is usually around the plate. It might be your best chance to get the big hit on the automatic strike pitch.

It's dangerous to always follow a set plan. You need to mix things up once in a while.

With 2 outs and two runners on base, it's not unusual strategy to swing at the first pitch when a pitcher has been throwing a bunch of balls, especially when that pitcher is usually around the plate. It might be your best chance to get the big hit on the automatic strike pitch.

It's dangerous to always follow a set plan. You need to mix things up once in a while.

Of course, that 'automatic strike pitch' was a pitch almost on Moeller's feet.
