Well the Phillies and Padres both won tonight so this is a must win if there ever was one this season. This team cannot fall 1 1/2 games out of the WC.

This lineup simply has not produced with Clayton and LaRue in it on the same night. sighhhh....

08-30-2006, 09:46 PM
Whoa, Clayton is batting .301? I haven't noticed this.

keeganbrick
08-30-2006, 09:47 PM
Oops I forgot to change it when I took BP out.

08-30-2006, 09:57 PM
I can't see this lineup doing much against Maddux tonight. I hope I am wrong.

goreds2
08-30-2006, 10:07 PM
I like Rich in the 3rd spot right now because he is "going with the pitch" unlike other Reds hitters at the moment. Only 3 hours sleep and I am ready to go tonight!

It's time for Mr. Maddux to have a non-quality outing tonight. :beerme: :party:

08-30-2006, 10:08 PM
Clayton and Larue back-to-back = definition of "offensive blackhole"

keeganbrick
08-30-2006, 10:15 PM
Wow, how do you not reach 1st on that?

Newman4
08-30-2006, 10:16 PM
That's a plain awful call by the 1st base ump. ML umps are horrible this year. Questec for the bases too?

Petitt33
08-30-2006, 10:18 PM
Well, there's a nice start. :rolleyes:

They give Furcal a double on Dunn fumbling around the ball hit to left.

Double? Not sure? What a joke!

Defense is soooooooooo under rated in baseball.

Good point. Valentin should have at least started at first base with those stats.

keeganbrick
08-30-2006, 10:32 PM
Seriously, Clayton looked horrible all of last night and the AB LaRue had where he popped up the sac bunt...jeez. Then they both start tonight.

keeganbrick
08-30-2006, 10:32 PM
Back to back hits from Jr and EE. Lets go offense!

cincyreds06
08-30-2006, 10:33 PM

Thats another dp ball We have into this series

keeganbrick
08-30-2006, 10:36 PM
At least Clayton showed some hustle. I dont know what else to support him on anymore.

inning over Another wasted chance reds 0 dodgers 0!

redlegs2370
08-30-2006, 10:37 PM
Is it just me but why has the sac bunt gone by the way side, especially with the Reds? I know Hat is the Reds best hitter but getting the lead, even at 1-0, and making the Dodgers have to play from behind.

Yeah, especially with the way the Reds offense has been, and the way Hatty has been hitting. It just doesn't make sense...We need runs, and the chance for a win any way we can get it now

B/c that sets them up for the Black Hole known as Clayton-Larue

2 dropped balls by larue... gosh he is horrible

OSUmed2010
08-30-2006, 10:45 PM
ugh.... Maddox with and RBI single to centerfield.... 1-0 dodgers

redlegs2370

well then the worst thing that would happen is you come close to turning the batting order over. Now the Reds leadoff with LaRue and Free is due up 3rd. Not going to score with those hitters so in a sense you have waisted another inning.

redlegs2370
08-30-2006, 10:50 PM
I hate to be pesimistic, but this game is really over. Maddux has the Reds number and the Dodgers have already turned the batting over in the 2nd inning.

redlegs2370

That is what I was afraid of, Now you have Dunn leading off the 4th. Reds are already running out of time.

OSUmed2010

1-2-3 from Harang.... can we get something going?

redlegs2370
08-30-2006, 10:57 PM
Nice rebound inning for Harrang, hopefully he can get a couple more of those 123 innings and go 7 or 8 innings tonight.

OSUmed2010
08-30-2006, 10:58 PM
We need Harang to go long tonight... we threw a lot of pitches last night

cincyreds06
08-30-2006, 10:59 PM
This team is done Can I say it now I mean the team looks helpless out there!

redlegs2370
08-30-2006, 11:00 PM
Reds are making Maddux look like the Maddux of the 90's.

redlegs2370
08-30-2006, 11:01 PM
This team is done Can I say it now I mean the team looks helpless out there!
Your 100% right, they will end this road trip 1-9 and 4 1/2 games out of the Wild Card.

OSUmed2010
08-30-2006, 11:01 PM
the Reds have been making a lot of pitchers look like that lately.

cincyreds06
08-30-2006, 11:01 PM
infield hit for richie! 1 on 1 out for Jr!

OSUmed2010

redlegs2370
08-30-2006, 11:03 PM
Well I guess with all of the GIDPs the number of LOB will be lower tonight. Just trying to find something positive.

OSUmed2010
08-30-2006, 11:04 PM
I had hopes that they were coming out of this slump the last couple of nights. They were able to put up some runs... but too little, too late

EKURed
08-30-2006, 11:04 PM
I have never rooted for a player to make an error more than I am rooting for Maddux to make one tonight. Nothing against Maddux, but it's getting so old hearing about how great of a fielder Maddux when he is simply fielding routine ground balls. Grande is an idol worshipper.

cincyreds06
08-30-2006, 11:04 PM
houston is hotter than a bunch of fireworks I smell We are gone already this team is helpless they dont want this wildcard?

OSUmed2010
08-30-2006, 11:08 PM
maybe they're setting up a triple play :bang:

this is awful

cincyreds06
08-30-2006, 11:09 PM
2-0 dodgers they are having fun whats wrong with us guys? I mean really I feel sorry for them Wait a minute no I dont they suck!

well... it's been a fun season

cincyreds06
08-30-2006, 11:11 PM
I hope you fans are having fun watching this!

EKURed
08-30-2006, 11:11 PM
Why is it that Grande sounds happy when the Dodgers score? You can hear Welsh groaning, but Grande gets all giddy. When the Reds are playing like this, he absolutely is like fingernails on a chalk board to me.

OSUmed2010
08-30-2006, 11:16 PM
hopefully, it'll be a short game tonight. I don't want to stay up till 3 watching the reds lose again

cincyreds06
08-30-2006, 11:17 PM
Theres another out this team is pathetic man I tell ya its embarrassing!

OSUmed2010
08-30-2006, 11:18 PM
At least we aren't the Pirates

OSUmed2010
08-30-2006, 11:19 PM
The Reds have no interest in making Maddux throw pitches tonight... only 48 through 5

snowstorm
08-30-2006, 11:24 PM
The Reds haven't scored in the last 15 innings.:barf:

keeganbrick
08-30-2006, 11:26 PM
LOL, good job Jr.

EKURed
08-30-2006, 11:29 PM
Not real sure how that's an error....probably shouldn't have dove for it. But then he catches even more grief. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

keeganbrick
08-30-2006, 11:30 PM
LaRue came through, I knew you would buddy.

EKURed
08-30-2006, 11:30 PM
I'm serious...Grande almost sounded disappointed LaRue hit a home run. He's killing me!

Billy_Bearcat
08-30-2006, 11:33 PM
Hey, that was Larue's first hit this month!

keeganbrick
08-30-2006, 11:46 PM
You throw a first pitch strike in this situation?? Nice

Billy_Bearcat
08-30-2006, 11:46 PM
Perfectly executed squeeze.

goreds2
08-30-2006, 11:51 PM
Sqeeze bunt successful for Maddux. What a fraustrating thing when a team is in a slump. :cry:

In my 32 years keeping track of the Reds, I have never remembered 2 series when almost EVERYTHING went right for the opposing team (please dismiss the 82, 83 and 84 teams :laugh: ). It has to be getting to the Reds bench mentaly if it is getting to us.

Billy_Bearcat
08-30-2006, 11:54 PM
Maybe the Reds can move from the Grapefruit League to the Cactus League for Spring Training in order to get used to playing out west.

Billy_Bearcat
08-30-2006, 11:56 PM
Might be the end for Maddux. Finally getting to him.

keeganbrick
08-30-2006, 11:56 PM
Damn Hatteberg should have got to 2nd base on that play.

RadfordVA
08-30-2006, 11:56 PM
finally getting to maddux?

Billy_Bearcat
08-30-2006, 11:56 PM
Damn Hatteberg should have got to 2nd base on that play.

Yep, probably should be 4-3.

RadfordVA
08-30-2006, 11:58 PM
this would be huge for larues confidence

keeganbrick
08-30-2006, 11:59 PM
There was another run if Hatte went to 2nd on this single.

GOREDSGO32
08-30-2006, 11:59 PM
Well this is probably the last game I listen to this year. Amazing collapse for this team. I don't give a crap if we finish ahead of expectation, I don't give a crap if I should be happy about being better than last, the plain simple fact is we lead the Wild Card for almost the entire year, and go on a 10 game road trip in the last month of the year, and go one and freaking six. More likely to end 1-9. What a joke. Maybe we can DFA about 15 of the spare parts before the end of the year and dump some of these crap players, and just start over for the offseason and next year.

Billy_Bearcat
08-31-2006, 12:00 AM
Typical of the Reds luck this trip. Still, it should be 4-3.

RadfordVA
08-31-2006, 12:00 AM
damn maddux is a great fielder

Billy_Bearcat
08-31-2006, 12:02 AM

You're right, GRG. Professional sports is not about moral victories.

EKURed
08-31-2006, 12:02 AM
The Reds can't catch a break. And every bloop the Dodgers hit finds a hole.

RadfordVA
08-31-2006, 12:03 AM
i love how the reds are a game out of the wild card and the season is over to everybody. Amazing how a losing streak makes fans feel like things are never going to turn around.

goreds2

It is great to hear Chris Welsh getting on the Reds for their bonehead plays and lack of hustle.

Tom Servo
08-31-2006, 12:06 AM
I'm not ready to give up on the team at this point. Sure this is pretty bad, but we've been through these stretches this year and survived. We started the year off strong in April, maybe we can finish it strong in September.

GOREDSGO32
08-31-2006, 12:06 AM
What have the Reds shown that makes you beleive they are going to overcome being 1 1/2 games back of the WC?

RadfordVA
08-31-2006, 12:07 AM
they are only one game back right?

George Anderson
08-31-2006, 12:08 AM
Why in the world didnt Narron have LaRue bunt with runners on second and third and one out?? I guess he expected that .170 batting average to bring the runners home.

RadfordVA
08-31-2006, 12:09 AM
baseball teams go on streaks all year long, you cant be so emotional in baseball. This time next week we could be leading the central. When you play everyday things change quickly

Tom Servo

hope, faith. Not everything has to have mathmatical backing.

corycrozier
08-31-2006, 12:12 AM
That is the problem-the Reds do not seem to play everyday. They are litterally shooting themselves in the foot on this roadtrip by stupid plays, lack of execution and lack of hustle. We are not talented enough to overcome many teams when we play like this. I believe it shows a lot about this team when crunch time comes.

RadfordVA
08-31-2006, 12:14 AM
poll on dodgers telecast: 18% thinks griffey isnt a first ballot hofer, 9% say he should never get in. lol

corycrozier
08-31-2006, 12:17 AM
Baseball absolutely frustrates me. What other sport does the players dictate the team and are treated so fragile. If it was about winning, many players on this team's role would be different; however, we are too worried to move Griffey out of centerfield for the good of the team or to have Dunn choke up to make contact when it makes sense.

If you think about it 5 of the 8 position players I believe are playing out of position all because we are afraid to hurt someones feelings.

When guys don't hustle they need to be chewed out.

BRING ON PINELLA TO KICK SOME BUTT IN THIS CLUBHOUSE! SOMEONE NEEDS A BUTT CHEWING!

08-31-2006, 12:25 AM
Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse. Ladies and Gentlemen... Matt Belisle! 6-2 and we can look up from 1 and a half and 4 and a half back. Another HR, 7-2. Way to hold the game at two Matt.

08-31-2006, 12:27 AM
ticks me off about this team!.. After Thursday's win i felt this team had turned the corner and was about to start putting pressure on the Cards.. but then the last 6 days?? the team is playing like they are in last place!!!.. geesh i hope some of this dead wood is of the team next year..:(

Thank GOD!! The Bengals will have a beter chance at the post season.. THEY WANT TO WIN!!!

corycrozier
08-31-2006, 12:29 AM
This season is almost more frustrating than the seasons when we had no hope. Wayne has tried everything to try to win, some players are having career years....still its not good enough. Baseball really sucks!

This board is very therapeutic to get this out of my system, because I would probably have an ulser by now.

Tom Servo
08-31-2006, 12:33 AM
there's always next year
