Maloney throws a 1-2-3 2nd inning with 2 K's.

2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K

Maloney should make Ramirez's next start.

Problem is somebody has to take Shearn's spot when he bombs out in 2 starts.

They got Johnny Cueto sitting in AA. If we are still making a charge at the race and Ramirez, Shearn, and Belisle don't perform good enough expect Maloney and Cueto to get shots.

I guess Maloney's stuff still works at AAA. He's avoided the Jeremy Sowers career path so far.

Belisle is a step up from Ramirez and Shearn, and I don't think you'll see Cueto this year.

Maloney strikes out the side on 13 pitches. He looks pretty good.

Stubbs(12) and Francisco(24) go back to back. Dragons Trail 4-3.

Maybe Maloney throws 95, but it's so sneaky fast, even the gun thinks it's 87?

Maloney K's the leadoff batter in the 4th inning. That six consecutive strikeouts and a total of seven in 3.1 innings.

OnBaseMachine

Maloney has gotten into some trouble. After the strikeout, he allowed a single, walk, and then a 0-2 single by Chris Shelton to drive in a run.

OnBaseMachine
08-28-2007, 08:34 PM
Maloney K's the side again!

4 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 9 K

His last seven outs have came via the strikeout.

So much for Jeremy Sowers.

That's great to hear. Lefties that throw 88 mph with a nasty curveball can get by in the majors. Rich Hill does it. Barry Zito. Noah Lowry.

BTW, Votto just singled. He's 1-for-2 with a single and walk.

Did Dickerson get hurt, or were the Reds so disgusted with Ellison that they decided to DFA him and call Dickerson up?

Danny Dorn is 2-2 for the Lookouts who trail 4-0.

OnBaseMachine
08-28-2007, 08:49 PM
And now Maloney comes out in the 5th and walks two awful hitters (sub .200 average for both). He doesn't have any command tonight.

Maloney has to be in Cincy for his next start. It's a longshot that he's ready to give us a consistent quality effort but he's got a better shot than the Lizard does.

reds44
08-28-2007, 08:50 PM
So much for that.

3 run homer given up.

OnBaseMachine
08-28-2007, 08:51 PM
Wow, so much for calling up Maloney. He walked two sub .200 hitters and then allowed a 3-run HR to .203 hitting Dane Sardinha.

10th strikeout in 4.1 innings. His last eight outs have been via the strikeout.

I caught them saying something about him complaining of pain in his ribcage.

Strikeouts are impressive. 4 runs in 4.2 innings is not.

Next game, more K's, less runs? I can hope can't I?

Sure! We're Reds fans after all!

He did come back to K the next batter after the 3-run HR.

93-55 pitches / strikes. 5 IP, 4 hits, 10 Ks, 3 BB so far.

Stubbs is 2-for-2 with a single, HR, walk, and 2 RBI. Francisco has singled and homered in three atbats.

Stubbs is a bust (only if you rearrange the letters and turn the b around).

Tyler Pelland coming in now so the line I posted for Maloney is final.

Pelland Ks 2 in the 6th. Bats lead 9-4.

We won't be making a charge if Ramirez, Shearn and Belisle don't do good enough. We can only lose about 7 more times. Any more than than that and it's over.

Yeah, but I heard somewhere that Sardinha was an up and coming prospect. Didn't he get a ML contract right out of college? He must be amazing.

Not to be a nag, but isn't this what he should be doing at this age at this level?

Danny Dorn does it again. He just hit another HR (20). That is his 8th in 72 at bats since being called up to Chattanooga. He is 3-3 on the night.

Maybe.... but other guys who do it at this level, do they play defense like Drew? It just gets me excited that he has seemingly turned the corner a little bit, which means something has been working for him for his last 230 plate appearances. Thats a good sign.

Dorn continues to impress. He is quickly climbing his way into Reds Top 10 Prospects range.

I'm not worried by one bad pitch out of Maloney tonight, he's still the best looking lefty in the system.

I would take Travis Wood over Maloney without blinking. If Coutlangus counts as a part of the system, give me him as well.

Four great power hitting years in the Reds system from Dayton through Louisville. When is the last time four legitimate prospects had productive power numbers? The mark of a good system.

If we trade him to the Indians, does Corbin Bernsen get a royalty check?

Four hits tonight for 20 year old Mr. Castro, Chatanooga shortstop acquired from the Mets for Conine. (Or did we already decide he's no good for some reason.)

I don't think it would be a reach to say Brandon Waring will hit close to 30 or more HR next year

I like Wood's stuff better as well, but until he can get healthy and/or start performing, I'll take the guy who's pitching very well in AAA.

Obviously I hope that this is not the case with Wood, but there are many pitchers out there (including one with the same last name) that had filthy stuff but could never throw more than 100 innings in a season.
