whats the fearless prediction for Milton today? I say he gives up a two run and a solo, but that is IT! :D

If he keeps that up for the rest of the season, I'll eat a Red Swingline stapler.

According to yesterday's notes, the Reds' record for games without a complete game in a season is matched today. If Milton does not go all the way, the Reds will have yet one more record factoid about how horrendous this staff has been.

MWM
07-16-2005, 08:11 PM
His last three starts have come against Arizona, San Franciso, and Houston...very average to below average offenses. Colorado is the worst offense in the NL away from home. So I think there's a good chance he has another good outing. If he can somehow not be exposed in his next start against the Cubs, and then pitch well in his following outing against a very bad Dodger offense, that will put us at the trading deadline. I still don't think any team, even the desperate teams, will be dumb enough to trade for him, but if he does pitch well in his final 3 starts before the deadline, I'd be pushing hard to unload him. I'd even be willing to pick up a good portion of the salray remaining on his contract just to free up a little cash.

How many times does Casey have to roll the ball to first base and hit into a double play will it take for some idiot with this team to realize that he does not need to be batting at the top of the order?

This just frustrates me to no end.

This just frustrates me to no end.

...or until Chambliss or SOMEBODY else identifies that there is a flaw in his plate approach that causes him to keep hitting balls to the SAME spot on the infield with alarming regularity.

GB/FB ratio of over 2-1 now...and it's been an AWFULLY long time since I can remember Casey shoot a ball into the gap opposite field.

WVRedsFan
07-16-2005, 08:31 PM
Tell me if this makes any sense. We all know that Casey can hit. He's proven he's a great doubles hitter. Does anyone besides me think he has very poor plate discipline? He seems to hack at anything and sometimes is too impatient. The pitch he rolled into that double play (I say rolled because it was just like he took his hand and rolled it like a bowling ball to the first baseman) was tailor made for the roller to first.

Or am I just crazy?

The pattern is clear. Start any lefthander against us that we haven't seen, have the pitchers rely on their somewhat fastballs, and you're losing 3-0 in the fourth inning. Never fails.

Milton must have heard their guys were all from AAA. He was throwing straight down the middle. Reminder to Eric...other team's AAA players can hit.

Gonzalez HBP. The a ground out by Helton Looked like a DP to me but the runner was called safe at 2nd. Said Lopez missed the bag. Atkins gounds out. Byrnes hits a shot that eats up Randa. Run scores 6-5 Rocks. Brynes steals 2nd.

cumberlandreds

Mohr flies to cf to end the inning. 6-5 Rocks to the bottom of the 7th. IMO a bad call at 2nd cost Belisle a run.

Yep, it would be nice to see some passion in this organization.

You're right, Cuban has lots of respect for his fans and his players, plus, he is willing to spend cash to get the best coaches/training staff etc. etc. for his teams.

He makes players excited about playing for his organization.

WMR
07-16-2005, 10:44 PM
Griff seems to do a lot of first-pitch swinging... sometimes successful, sometimes not so much,,, the perplexing thing is that he seems to continue his first-pitch-swinging trend even when the opposing team's pitcher is exhibiting trouble with maintaining control...

Matt700wlw
07-16-2005, 10:54 PM
Standridge was brought in because, according to Dan O'Brien, he can give you long relief and is an "inning eater" while Booker is more of a 1 inning pitcher.

So far Standridge has pitched 2 innings (I think), and neither of them consecutive.

This one he got out of.

It's all about coming through with a clutch, game-winning hit! But I see your point. We wouldn't have been in position for Ray Ray to get his game-winner if it hadn't been for RA's night at the plate. He had a clutch hit or two, also. So here's to you Rich Aurilia! :beerme: You can be the star of the game!
