For the Dodgers, that is, with Kent moving over to play 1B again! :evil:

It only took 100 games to put a good looking lineup together. Now with a little luck by 2007 they might realize that pitching is what gets you to the playoffs and wins championships.

My heart skipped a beat when Jr. didn't come out of the dugout right away. I thought he might of been traded for a moment.

James B.
07-27-2005, 11:16 PM
At least when Casey hits into a double play Griffey or Dunn won't be on deck. That's what makes me mad. There's no telling how many RBI's he has cost Junior.

Vin Scully just said that Lopez had a "terrible" Spring Training this year.

Uh...Vin? Um...

Scully probably read this recent article by Hal to prepare for his broadcast

"The Reds were so concerned about Lopez that veteran Rich Aurilia was signed in the offseason, something to tuck in the envelope, just in case Lopez was the 2004 Lopez. Making it worse, young shortstops Ray Olmedo and Anderson Machado had offseason surgeries.

It was Lopez, Aurilia or die. And Lopez died in spring training, so Aurilia began the season as the shortstop."

http://www.daytondailynews.com/sports/content/sports/reds/daily/0727redsplug.html

Never mind the truth: Lopez and Aurilia had similar spring performances. And that the "2004 Lopez" was pretty darn good during the 2nd half of the season

My guess is Ramon now pitches the next 4.2 innings run free before mysteriously giving up 4 runs in the sixth after not being able to get that final out.

What's the problem with Kearns' AB?

I don't see how it was ugly or whatever.

It was an eight pitch at bat, he fouled off some tough pitches, took some close ones. The whole time I was thinking to myself that it was a good one.

I don't know much, so I'm probably wrong.

Chris called Encarnacion a "free swinger".

Huh?

NC Reds
07-27-2005, 11:57 PM
Have you ever wondered how Ortiz and Milton would fare against AAA competition? I think they would have ERA's around 4.00 or a little higher. I base that in part on how they make a AAAA player like Repko look like a good MLB hitter.

Vin Scully musing that Casey, Griffey, and Dunn (???) could be passed through waivers after July 31st.

I love Vin Scully, but I've never seen him this shaky on commentary. Obviously it's more difficult to do the job by yourself, but he's just saying dumb things an awful lot right now. Kinda' heartbreaking really.

Yeah, Scully said that.

He also said last night that Dunn is an "all or nothing" hitter. But I figured I didn't even want to go there on the game thread.

Scully really needs a color man right now because the more he's talking, the more he's making no sense with his comments.

Hollcat
07-28-2005, 01:06 AM
I thought it was somewhat common for teams to put many of their players on waivers after the trading deadline just to see who would be interested in them and if they could work something out. The teams putting players on waivers can always pull them back off so as not to loose the player.
I could have some or all of this wrong but I thought this was a frequent practice.

Gallen5862
07-28-2005, 01:07 AM
I gave him points earlier. Gully is one of our top prospects. And Reds take the lead on a groundrule double. Ortiz in line to get a win.

How canyou sit in the dugout and watch that? How in the world can you march him out again after the last two performances? It, once again, boggles my mind.

Belisle is far too hittable. It's the same disease that plagues the rest of the Reds' pitching staff.

There simply isn't a guy on this staff than makes anyone fear anything but a blown lead.

Cyclone792

One pitch and we're out of the inning--two runs later.

Will Narron ever learn? Did Miley? Did Boone?

Sorry, I miss old Captain Hook. You ain't got it, you're history. The philosophy of recent managers has been to react too late to save a game. Bloops or not, it's runs and like the man above me said, Matt is far too hittable these days. Save him for mopup work until further notice.

Belisle simply needs experience, and to do better on the road. Typically, most of your middle relievers aren't going to miss a ton of bats. Sometimes bad luck is bad luck. He ran into alot of it tonight, as have the Reds during road trips. When you have a 31-25 record at home but can't do nothing on the road to at least have the team 5 games below 500, that is bordering on mental.

When specific players can make it effective, like Freel, I love it added into the offensive punch. Like OBM said, a .400ish OBP and an 83 percent success rate stealing bags ... ideal leadoff hitter and I love Freel running around the bags doing his thing.

Not to take anything away from Freel, who had an amazing night, but Sean Casey could have stole once or twice on those pedestrian pitches from the Dodgers and those errant, slow throws from Phillips.
