By the way, Rich, do us all a favor tonight and ground into 5 double plays and make about 3 errors. :thumbup:

Hopefully, Aurilia makes a painfull cry when he dives for a routine ball and we hear a scream that signifies that his season is over.

Tony Cloninger

Exactly.....2 GDP's that kill a rally....a pop-up to the 1st baseman as you stagger into the LH side of the batter's box. Another K. Miss groundballs that...even dead...Luis Apiricio would have still gobbled up.

BE the reason that this team loses, if it does, tonight...or wins in spite of you.

Upon recieving the lineup card, the umpires huddle with Dave Miley and show him where Lopez should be playing.

06-09-2005, 07:41 PM
Well... Lopez does need a blow every now and then and Aurilia does hit LH's way better than RH's and hopefully Hudson K's so many that a GB is a rarity.

Never the less, Lopez will need a day off, better the replacement be against the worlds worst expansion team.

Darrell Chaney got himself some at bats once upon a time for the same reason.

How about this one.

Upon recieving the lineup cards, the umpires tell Dave Miley that he has been fired and point him to the door. The umps were appologetic but added that Dan O Brien thought it would be better for team harmony if Miley learned of his dismissal from a neutral party.

Eric_Davis

Playing 162 games during a year never caused other REDS to suffer. At FeLo's age, there's no reason why he can't play every day. There's so many off days in baseball, and they've got spa-like facilities to nurse the aches and pains. He's a world-class athlete. He can go 162 games productively.

They do tonight.

$1.00 buys you a beer on Thursdays. They usually get around 8,000-10,000 instead of the normal 2,500 fans on a weeknight.

Today's also the warmest day in a week, and it's supposed to cool down to the 60's the next couple of days.

Should get 10,000 tonight (Padres AAA against Diamondbacks AAA).

thanks, fans,...I don't have the visual.

So, our cleanup hitters helped Fossom out of his first-inning wildness, huh?

If Hudson can get out of this inning w/out giving up a run, he'll cut his ERA in half down to 4.50. Looking for something optimistic here.

Freel grounds to 3B, 3B comes home with the throw (force out), Aurila slides into the catcher's foot- knocking him off balance- and the catcher throws the ball away trying to double up Freel. Run scores.

Whenever I see Jason go to the mound I am reminded of him talking about how he handles pitchers. He said you go out and say to some of them "get your crap together and throw some strikes". Others you have to go out and pat them on the butt and tell them "it's going to be okay". He just went out and patted Luke's butt.

He's looked at lot better at the games I have been at. Seems to be running full out in the field (but not on the baespaths). Saw him dive for a ball once. My heart skipped a few beats on that one.

06-09-2005, 09:40 PM
Casey saved a throwing error on Freel with that nice snag at first. I like when they can pick each other up like that.

IMHO, Jr's looking real good in center. He still easily gets to balls that others struggle for (or just don't get to), partly because Jr still has a great eye for the where the ball's going as soon as its hit.

Even with the HR, Luke's doing well tonight, especially for his first start since last year.

Like you said, the range will never be the same, but age would have done that as well, he has looked better with every passing week it seems. Every so often there is a flash, or the occasional dive and he looks perfectly healthy. He's probably 85% of what he once was as an OFer.

Great camera work catching that foulball exchange. Old lady gets it and gives it to a young boy who hugs her.

That's it for Hudson.

Let him shower. He's thrown enough.

Let Belisle finish the game.

It will be interesting to find the idiot who decided to call up Hudson now. He looks like it is still March as expected after 2 month layoff.

Oh yeah, his name is Dan O'brien...................

Think of it this way: Luke now has a 7.50 ERA. He belongs.

Take out Griffey. Take out Hudson.
Agreed 100%. Put WMP in CF and Ears in RF.

Both posted before last inning....tsk tsk Dave. :bang:

I'm still ticked about that 3rd strike call to Adam.
