There is an interview with Barry Larkin coming up on Real Reds for those interested!

TeamBoone
08-23-2005, 07:00 PM
I just watched the interview. It was lengthier than most.... and he's one interesting guy; still extremely loyal to the Reds. From the action shots they showed, the guys on the team really miss him. I miss him. Class act and so was the interview.

If anyone wants to watch all 3 games for free on DTV then go to channel 626 if you are in the following areas...

As part of the multi-year carriage agreement between DIRECTV and MASN, beginning March 1, 2006, DIRECTV will carry MASN on a full-time, 24/7 basis on channel 626. MASN's service territory includes Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, Washington, D.C., and parts of North Carolina, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

Everyone else must go through MLB Extra innings. Sorry!

Patrick Bateman

That's as good as I've seen a pitcher look against us in the first inning all year.

Those called strikes to Griffey and Dunn were virtually unhittable.

DISH Network still hasn't signed on for MASN,so even though I live in the DC burbs I'm blacked out for the Nats games through EI. The only game of this series I will be able to watch is the one I'm going to on Thursday afternoon.

This pitcher looks unhittable.

Anyone but me think that Kearns is still having trouble with the thumb and that is the reason for the flying bats?

RedlegNation
08-23-2005, 07:27 PM
Somethingís wrong with Kearnsí thumb. Heís thrown two more bats already today. He canít hold onto them over the last few weeks.

And heís probably not telling anyone about it because heís afraid heíll be benched if heís not manly enough to play through the pain.

KronoRed

Kearns just showing the love to bat seekers ;)

Gainesville Red
08-23-2005, 07:28 PM
Gotta believe there is something for real wrong with his thumb. He was looking at it after the second bat toss. I mean it's ridiculous the rate he throws bats. Check out his thumb before it gets worst. I mean he's gonna kill somebody. ;)

corkedbat

Interesting thhoughts by Welsh (did I really say that?) about Kearns possibly being bothered by his thumb and that being the reason for the bats flying out of his hands.

Maybe it's because they so rarely see home runs in this ballpark. For example, 20 of Jose Guillen's 21 HRs have come on the road.

You can tell when Dunn is slumping... always chases those bad pitches down. Only three homeruns in 63 atbats in August for Dunn after hitting eleven homeruns in July.

It's pretty obvious based on them being last in MLB in Runs Scored, but the team is terrible at Walking. Preston Wilson, who is second in BB in their lineup tonight (behind only Johnson) with 40 of them has less than 1/2 the number of BB Dunn does in a similar number of AB(412 for Dunn; 390 for Wilson).

Very nice outing by Hudson so far. The Reds pitchers should improve their numbers against the Nats. You aren't going to mistake the Nats for the '27 Yanks anytime soon.

For the fifty billionth time in August, Dunn gets ahead in the count 3-0 and gets out. Hopefully he can rebound soon and reach 45 homeruns.

By the way, Hudson-ZERO walks in seven innings tonight. That right there tells you all you need to know about the Washington offense.

Kalan Pimental, the kid from California playing in the LLWS, had a .880 On-base percentage during the season. :eek: This is the same kid who struckout 18 batters in six innings a few days ago. His fastball has been clocked at 82 mph, which translates to a 105 mph MLB fastball.

He just hit a grand slam a few minutes ago.

Don't look now, but Edwin Encarnacion's OPS is over 800. It's higher than Sean Casey's OPS.

He makes me happy.

Nice pitching from Shackelford there. He had them off-balance on pretty much everything. So far at least, he's looked really good and now has his WHIP under 1.00 on the year.

I know this is petty, and I don't dislike George Grande. But why can't he ever be wrong? When Dunn was up he said "and here comes Casey............................................. ........................ on the on deck circle." I just found it funny.

From what I saw of the game, it looked like Luke Hudson had it going on the mound.

Good pitching is an absolute necessity on the road.

Tommorrow Hal McCoy uses the term "Big Road Machine" in describing the suddenly road-resurgent Redlegs in his Dayton Daily News byline.

Remember you heard it here first on RedZone.com :thumbup: Accept no substitutions.
