If Kearns were hitting better I would tend to agree with you, but I hope that Kearns left all the bats with the holes in the sweet spot in Chicago...

Kearns and Encarnacion are as cold as cold can be. They are right where they should be.

I couldn't agree more redsfan... I actually like RA in the 4 hole against the lefty Wandy.... He has came up clutch more times than not this season and I think he's gonna have a great game! Quote me on that...

You have been quoted.;)

I hope you are right about that.

They are cold now, and I guess that neither Kearns or Encanacion should be right in the middle of the order. I still don't like Arillia batting cleanup, but I guess that's probably the best option. Besides, they should get some RBI opertunities hittin behind Dunn.:thumbup:

The MLB.com Fantasy411 Insider this week highlighted the fact that Austin Kearns has a .183 AVG at Houston

Couple that with him having a 1.021 OPS at Wrigley last year and the poor series he had there the past few days, and this could be a long weekend for him.

Phillips now has a 1.000 OBP when batting leadoff. :D

TeamBoone
06-02-2006, 09:08 PM
Why O Why can't he stick with the lineup that works?????

RA in the four slot again... I'll bet he's hit there more this season than anyone else on the team, especially the guy(s) that should hit there.

I was so angry when I saw that that I got a pain in my stomach. It's just mind boggling.

Tornon

Phillips steals second and Munson decides to throw it to right field rather than 2nd base and Brandon goes to third

The REDS have scored 5 or more runs:
* Three times in the last 10 games.

redsfan30

That was important for Harang to shut them down the half inning after scoring 5 runs.

Nothing is more disheartening than scoring 5 runs then coming right back and giving up 3.

The REDS are 6-1 when scoring 5 or more runs in an Aaron Harang start. The only loss was Opening Day (16-7, Cubs... ouch).

The REDS are nice for scoring some runs for Harang in that big 1st inning. Shutout during Aaron's last two starts and only 3 runs in the start before that.

redsfan30
06-02-2006, 09:34 PM

Coming into tonight the REDS have won 18 of the last 19 games in which they scored 5 or more runs!

The only losses when scoring 5 or more:
(1) Opening Day: 16-7, Cubs.
(2) Apr. 16 @ Cards. 8-7 loss (Pujols 2R walkoff HR).
(3) Apr. 18 vs. Marlins. 12-6 loss.
(4) May 20 @ Tigers. 7-6 loss.

I was happy to see it. Good agressive baseball, and doesn't hurt anything with a 5 run lead and the Reds ace on the mound. Keep the pressure on.

Kearns' two at bats are even more encouraging for me, especially his first one.

THNDRacket
06-02-2006, 09:53 PM
Yeah, I can't see why Ross isn't getting more starts. Sure, he was never much of a hitter in previous years, but he worked hard in the off season and has been hitting well so far this year. I can't imagine Narron continuing to start a catcher hitting a buck 67.

Coming into this series the REDS had scored 7 runs in their last 5 games at Minute Maid Park.

The game before those 5 games... the REDS won 9-0 and beat Roger Clemens. They managed 2 runs and 4 hits off Clemens in his 8 innings of work. The REDS had 6 hits and scored 7 times in the 9th inning (incl. a 3R HR by Freel). Harang was the winning pitcher (7 IP).

Take away the Clemens game and the REDS managed 14 runs in their other 8 games at Minute Maid Park last year... and a 1-8 record. Went 1-6 there in 2004.

A nice change in their 1st game there this year. :thumbup:

Anybody else notice that the fans sitting behind the damn home plate are busy farting, chatting with each other, sipping beer.....anything EXCEPT watching the game, then Phillips fouls a ball off his his calf muscle and those "fans" laugh their asses off? That's why I rarely go to ballgames, the "fans" tend to ruin the experience for me (the game itself is great).

Great win for the Reds tonight and good to see Yan close out the game!

Now to an important question. Sorry if it's been brought up, but is the women in the Safe Auto commercial where she keeps talking and talking the women from the JTM commercials? It sure looks like it but just wondering!

Don't forget Hammond.

Hammond got into a little trouble tonight, but you don't go from where he started the season to where he is without *some* ability to get out of trouble. With Arroyo and Harang almost being lights out, and with the bullpen starting to look better, I think they're into position to consistently win series. All they need are OK starts here and there by the rest of the rotation (and you have to think the offense will start to click again), and they'll start seeing 3-5 game winning streaks again. Gotta' start somewhere, or you'll end up nowhere. :thumbup:

Coffey has hit 96mph a few times this year, but is usually around 94-95mph.

I think Yen will be used in situational outings. To get one big out in an inning. 96mph is impressive.

I think the Cards are about out of relief pitchers. They are on their 8th in the game and Hancock is out in the 13th for his 3rd inning of work. I gave their roster a quick glance and I don't see another reliever that's available. They even had to resort to keeping Hancock in the game to bat in the bottom of the 12th with the bases loaded and only 1 out. LaRussa decided to chance it with Hancock and he struck out.
