Honestly, with only 12 position players and Randa and Casey both hurting, Keisler may have to PH today.

Casey may be more than hurting. He is supposed to be "evaluated" today. They really need another OF up here.

Anyone ... Bueller

Casey will be put on the 15-day disabled list with hurt feelings.

They won't be able to get someone to the game in time unless they DL Wilson, DL Casey or drop a pitcher (unlikely after last night's 13 inning affair).

Casey will be put on the 15-day disabled list with hurt feelings.

Only if his treatment consists of duct taping his mouth shut.

With LaRue and Casey hurtin' and the fact that Jr usually sits when we play a day game after a night game we could see this.

I had been looking forward to Harang's start all week. Belisle replaces Harang with sweep in sight

Matt Belisle will get the ball in place of Aaron Harang, who was a late scratch.

yeah. I'm hoping for a "Villone emergency start" type of performance. Plus I am hoping Belisle can keep throwing in the mid 90's like he did in his first couple of starts.

Joseph

Seems as though he pitched well in his first start when he didn't have a lot of time to think about it, so maybe there will be similar results this go round.

Thats a soft walk for Kearns. He purposely fouled off all those pitches so that he wouldn't have to do the heavy lifting.

If I'm the Nationals, Kearns doesn't see another strike the rest of this game if anyone is on base. I'd take my chances with Cruz, Valentin and Bergolla, and if they beat me, so be it.

It'll be interesting to see how well Belisle pitches this inning.

DoogMinAmo
05-25-2005, 02:12 PM
Valentin actually did the Reds a favor. He managed to prolong Vargas' outing at least another inning, so the damage can be more evenly distributed throughout the game. That Valentin, quite the team player.

On a serious note, why the heck is he swinging at a first pitch when Vargas had walked two in the inning. and had thrown a ton of pitches?

If Belisle manages to make this a quick top of the second, Vargas will tire out quickly. So far so good, 3 pitch GO to Harris, followed by 2 pitch GO to Bennett.

1 pitch line out by Guzman, nice job Matt!

I don't know why he does that. When he's at his best.. he's working the count deep, waiting for his pitch to drive, and walking if he's doesn't get that pitch. Then, for some reason, every so often he changes that apporach and gets too agressive at the plate and slumps(early April for example).

Matt Belisle is interesting because some days he is lights out and some days he looks as if he doesn't have a clue. Fortunately, today he is on. In some respects, he reminds me of Chris Reitsma. You never knew which Reitsma was going to show up. That's how Belsile is.

Yep. Exactly. And almost 1/4 of those were in a single game.

I got in an email discussion with Lonnie Wheeler over the meaning of Jim Tracy's phrase "pass the baton". Wheeler finally conceded that it did, in fact, mean "Don't make Outs".

Reds haven't been doing a lot of baton passing lately. They have been, however, giving up a lot of unnecessary Outs.

I have a stump to dig out of the gound in the back yard, and if I was home today my wife would no doubt expect me to be doing that and doing the paperwork in the evening, so I'm taking care of the paperwork at the office (even though I could do it at home) so I can listen to the game.

Enjoying the thread, PBPers -- in and out here at work.

Been impressed with Lopez and Bergolla in the field the last couple of games. Bergolla has hit into some bad luck, too, as some hard-hit balls have found gloves. Kid looks solid to me, though the bat will take a little while and will likely always be power-challenged. I like his all-around game, I think. And his age -22.
