I was just noticing the rotation, and I'm sure this has already been discussed, but Harang and Arroyo both need to go on 3 days rest next week. And if the offense could get them both an early lead today and tomorrow so that they could be pulled after 6 innings, that'd be great.

So, there you go offense, think you could arrange that? Ok, thanks.

Not much offense in there tonight with Griffey hurt, Hatte sitting and Larue catching. Harang hasn't been great either. Lucky to be tied at this point. We'll need to win some like this to get back in it.

Lead Off 2b for Castillo. Davis hits for Maholm and sac Castillo to 3B.

Good to get Maholm out of there. Need a righty in so Hatte and Holly can maybe help with some offense.

Need to hold them here and get Harang out of there.

mth123
09-09-2006, 09:03 PM
Not sure. I guess its Grabow the lefty up in the pen. Clayton V Capps or Hatte V. Grabow? I take Hatte just to get Capps out of there.

Can't fault Narron here. Coffey was the right choice. Need some runs and let Weathers take it home.

No reason to ignore. You are right, but he was the choice by default. Schoenweiss if its lefties up and Weathers to close. There is no one else I want in there in a game within 4 runs either way.

Edwin is one of the hardest workers on the team......and it was a throwing error.........how does that error make him lazy??

Sure is great that Harang, Coffey, and Franklin combined could hold that great Pirates offense to only 7 runs.

REDSEER
09-09-2006, 09:56 PM
Look at the Pirates lineup...........it's not that bad........

In fact, the Pirates have the best record in the central after the break.....

I agree with Marty... THis team is not that good, Narron can't make these guys hit with RISP, play good "D', or make quality pitches...

I agree about the players, but Narron hasn't helped put these guys in a position to succeed. Ryan Franklin has proven that he has no business in a close game unless its way extra innings and no one else is left. I'd have had Belisle, Bray or Standridge ahead of him. Shack too if its lefties up. Franklin and Majewski are purely mop up. I think Majewski will be ok next year.

mth123
09-09-2006, 10:02 PM
Why do I even have hope?


Not much reason now. Win Tomorrow and sweep SD and maybe hope is resurrected. Need some offense on this team in addition to the pitching. Line-up tonight wasn't real scary. Another lefty tomorrow so probably not much better. Maybe Ross will hit.

wojo1025
09-09-2006, 10:07 PM
This one can be blamed on a lot of things. Rich losing focus and allowing the runner to score from third with 1 out hurt. EE's error hurt, but we just gave up too many 2 out hits. Franklin has been a complete disappointment and really does not have any business being on a major league roster, especially not one that is "in a pennant race". Dunn seems to be swinging at BBs lately because it is back to homerun or strikeout. I like him better last month (or the month before, which ever) when he was spraying the ball around the outfield rather than trying to put every pitch in the stands.

I am thankful that it's September and the Reds are still alive in the playoff hunt, but I think this team needs a major facelift in the offseason. I like Hatte playing first til Votto is ready. BP moving to SS would be good and letting RA play 2d leaving EE to play third the entire season. Catcher is up in the air. There was a topic on here about trading Ross and honestly, if someone is willing to give up anybody of substance, I make that trade. Javy/LaRue platoon would be fine by me. I like Ross, but if we can use him as a trading chip to make the team better, then we have to do that. The OF is a whole other story. Who would've thought that when we had Griff, Dunn, Wily Mo, and Kearns-leaving Freel out in the dark-that right now the OF would be a problem. If we could get a good, young Brandon Webb type pitcher (which I know is far fetched) then I would move Dunn in a heartbeat. I like what I see in Norris Hopper. Freel can play all over the place and Deno is going to be alright, but IF they somehow move Dunn, we'll need another Bat in the middle.
We HAVe to figure out a way to move some of the left handed relief pitching we have. We have cornered the market on catchers, middle infielders and left handed pitching this season. I could see a few of those faces in other hats come next season.

All in all this team is frustrating at times and awesome at times, but I still love them. This offseason should be interesting. Hopefully this team will figure out a way to delay the offseason as long as possible!!!

Agree it was a team loss.

Need another bat in the middle anyway. If they move Dunn, they'll need 2. Not that high on Hopper or deno. I agree that Freel needs to play everywhere (and Rich too).

Schoenweiss is a Free Agent. I think he will be priced out of here unless they can trade Cormier. I see Bray, Cormier and Shack as next year's lefties. With Coffey and Majewski as righties. They may resign Weathers and bring in a closer and there is your 7 man pen. Shack may be replaced by a long reliever. I actually think that we will see improvement from Bray, Coffey and Maj next year. Bring back Weathers and get a closer and the pen could be ok next year. (Not great, but not this year's nightmare.)
