At least one thing about tonight is better...Freel is leading off instead of batting 8th. How in the world can Ryan Freel be in the lineup like last night and bat 8th with Hatteberg hitting 2nd? Makes no sense, especially since Freel is the Reds' best leadoff hitter (when in the lineup) and Lopez is their best #2 hitter.

I like this lineup. Narron should choose one and stick with it. He's like a psychopathic bingo caller.

I like this lineup too. I think he should have mixed it up a bit before because we had NOTHING going for us. But when that doesn't work, which it didn't, go back to what got us hot.

We need this win bad.

Don't know how many of you saw the starters' ERA for April and May on Real Reds, but it was quite interesting. I can't recall the specific numbers, but the reds starters were 12th in that category in April, and 4th in May. just looking at that, the Reds starters have done enough to win. Numbers can be misleading, especially in baseball, but who'd have thought that the starters' would be doing as well as they are up to this point. Just an interesting piece of information. I'm surprised at the interesting things that come up on Real Reds sometimes.

All you gotta do is get into Zambrano's head a little get him mad and he turns into 2005 Milton/2006 Williams Clone

I think that's kind of a over-hyped belief. Zambrano seems pissed off every time he takes the hill, but he's generally an awesome pitcher.

Freel leads the game off in the right way...I'm pretty optimistic for this game, I don't know why though :confused: I think that our team hits fireballers better than finesse pitchers...

Griffey grounds it right through the shift and the cubs decide to play pinball with their park and we end up first and third

Hatteberg grounds to second, if Zambrano keeps getting that outside corner stretched like that there is no way we hit him. No score middle of one

why does LaRue keep getting a start over Ross who even started a rally with a drag bunt? is hitting real good? oh i forgot. LaRue makes more money.. to me.. if i am Narron i start Ross. who cares what LaRue makes

With Pierre running, Perez flies to Dunn. 1 out

Patrick Bateman
05-31-2006, 09:22 PM
It's about their career's, not a handful of games. LaRue has been a far superior hitter in their respective careers. That's why he gets the bulk of the starts.

It really confuses me......Although his career numbers might not show it, Ross has been the most impressive catcher this year for the Reds...I don't see why you don't ride the hot hand.

Larue hasn't played well enough to get any starts this year....if this really is about money, then we need to get him out of here.

LaRue is a black hole in the lineup right now and Ross should be seeing more time. How long do you give him?

He's a slow starter. I give him at least another month. In the long run, he will likely be our best catcher this season.

This flies in the face of Narron's "gut feeling" approach to the game. Anymore, I'm not sure that Narron IS making out the lineup card.

I hate to be a pessimist, but doesn't this game resemble about a half dozen games we've played in the last month? Pitch great, missed opportunities, close game with no runs and we FIND a way to lose. I hope I'm wrong, but I see an error leading to a Cubs victory.....again.

I guess but I wouldn't expect my jr. high kids to make some of the stupid mistakes he does....and i understand that he is under a touch more pressure...and if he breaks out of his slump and starts hitting like he did early this year i'll live with the errors (like i was saying in april).

That pitch that is consistently called on Dunn really doesn't look like a strike on him, at least. That pitch is below his knees, which supposedly is the bottom of the strike zone......

Great Job Milton!!! 6 IP, 2 H, 0 ER so far...

If he gets out of this game unscathed that is 4 quality starts out of six games pitched. The other two were the Tigers, which was his first game back, and the game against the Marlins right before he went on the DL. He might finally be earning his salary.

Milton's delivery has seemed a lot smoother this year than last.....there is no funny leg kick after the pitch, and much better results.......as I speak he gets three straigh fly outs in the 7th......man I'm amazed at the improvement of Milton.....

if he would need to be taken out thats fine but it kills me when reds managers(and boone was bad about it) will take a pitcher out who is sailing along then bring in the dreck from the bullpen to blow it in 5 minutes all for the sake of thinking he has to do something managerial..cant leave well enough alone

David Cubbedge

Very big night turned in by Milton again. Anyone think he is not legit? Yeah is Ks were not there, but he had it going. He mixed his pitches well and I have no doubt that he can pitch even better than he did tonight. He may have had some luck on his side, but it was still an amazing performance.
Freel did ignite the offense a few times tonight which is always a huge factor in a Reds win. And Griffey came up big twice.
Very good defense tonight as Milton only had 1 K and the Reds had no errors. I liked the performance, but would still expect a little more from our offense.

MVP: Milton
