What is this fascination with batting Aurilia fourth or even third sometimes? I like Dunn third but Aurilia behind him defeats the purpose. No Kearns either. Oh well. Here's to Keisler on being next seasons Cy Young winner. :beerme: :rolleyes:

I'd imagine Kearns is still probably still in Lexington, KY.

KEARNS OUT: Outfielder Austin Kearns missed Tuesday's game. He returned home to Lexington for a personal matter

Oh and I think this about sums up my feelings about the lineup: :bang:

If Kearns is there and sitting on the bench, Narron should be reprimanded for playing Freel ahead of Kearns. Freel is simply a zero on offense these days. He needs some time off.

capndees
09-14-2005, 07:54 PM
I actually dont have a problem with Aurilia batting clean-up. Let's face it, for all his faults, he's been a VERY good clutch hitter this year (.341/.382/.593 with RISP). And hitting behind Dunn, he should have lots of RISP. I would like to see Kearns in there, but for what we have available, I think this is about as good a line-up as we could see.

Yes, per Real Reds, Kearns is in Lexington attending to a personal matter. I didn't see much of last nights game and didn't realize he was already back in KY.
They also reported that the Reds fired four minor league instructors. Jim Hickman,the roving batting coach;Sammy Ellis,the roving pitching coach;Rodney McCray(I assume he is not the former University of Louisvile basketball player) who was a roving coach of some sort and the manager of the GCL Reds who's name escapses me,probably because I had never heard of him. So it looks like DanO is taking some of his frustrations out on the minor leagues.

Tony Cloninger

Sammy and Jim have been around this org. for a while.....and the results of the minor leauge players that have been developed....well....it has been very small. I am not surprised they would be gone. Especially Ellis.

Hickman was a Cub, famous for the Ron Santo incident in Durochers days, Ellis the former Red was a pitcher inthe mid 60's McRay is the guy who ran through the wall at Civic Stadium in Portland. If it was the GCL it was Caceres, who managed Potomic last year and was in his 5th year in the the Reds organization

I'm not an Aurilia fan but he made that play look much easier than it was

Yep. That was all about the hands. Aurilia was expecting the hop at a certain point, the ball skidded on him, and he adjusted exceptionally well. And the throw wasn't easy.

That was an excellent veteran play.

Now Narron decides that Larue (an extra-base threat) should sac bunt so the Cubs can get to Aaron Holbert.

Narron would rather have the base than the out. I entirely disagree with that move given the situation.

Tornon

Holbert bounces to third that turns into a 5-3 double play, 4-4 middle of 10

And immediately after I post the above, the Holbert hits into the DP the Cubs needed.

Narron is awful at managing Outs in ballgames. That alone can end up costing a team 5 Wins per year.

BTW, Pena has played VERY well in CF recently as has Dunn in LF.

Pena, in particular has demonstrated excellent range and is taking better routes to fly balls. Dunn is getting much better jumps on fly balls than he did earlier in the season.

And Freel walks. We're about to see a Steal attempt, folks.

Nope. Bunt attempt. Everyone safe after Rich Hill takes FOREVER to get rid of it.

Another stupid call by Narron. He can go now.

Dunn flies out on the second pitch after the ump gives Hill a strike that wasn't on the first pitch. Freel goes to third.

Coffey just threw a 4-seam fastball at 94 MPH and struck the first hitter out on a 93-MPH cut fastball that the ump didn't like.

This umpire is a pile. He's called the low strike all night but only Cub pitchers have either corner.

Looks like you still have power though. The bad thing about those slow moving ones is that you can't go anywhere. We had it last year with Frances.
