Would have been a nice chance to play Kepp at either 1b or SS and bat him ahead of Junior to see how that works for Dusty.

Intead we get Manos de Oreos at short. Gracias.

Except for Duke, I have honestly never heard of any of those pitcher's for the Bucs.
It will be interesting to see how Maloney does. He seems like he has gotten some rave reviews this spring. May be someone to come up later in the year to help out.

Castro's nice defensive play helps his chances of taking a roster spot away from someone deserving....

Dunn's going to have his best year yet. I predict a homerun title from him this year.

Matt700wlw

According to the boys, that should have been an out at the plate.

I don't want to gripe, but there really isn't a reason for Jay Bruce to not be playing just about everyday in ST - even if he's just the DH. Votto too, but Bruce especially.

cumberlandreds

Bucs score another run. 3-2 Reds still in the second. Getting to Harang at the moment. Apparently a bad call at the plate on the first run.

Bad start by Maloney. Walk followed by a RBI double.

OnBaseMachine

Top 3: Matt Maloney on the hill for the Redlegs. Chris Dickerson in center for Freel. Walk. Double to right. 5-3. If the Pirates are trying to test Juan Castro's elbow, they're doing a good job. Another short dribbler in the hole and Castro makes the play and APhillips gets the throw for the first out. McCutchen is on third. LaRoche hits one to the track in center, scoring McCutchen. 5-4. Nice broken bat on Nady for Maloney. In on the hands, the ball was popped up too short for an out, but a tough pitch. And he came back inside and missed, going full. Bloop single for Nady. Bautista jammed and pops one up foul, and, well, then lets out a louder F bomb. Reds 5, Pirates 4

Moskos was their #1 pick last year, IIRC.

EDIT: I did remember correctly:


Background: Pittsburgh created quite a stir by selecting Moskos with the fourth overall pick in the 2007 draft, passing up Georgia Tech catcher Matt Wieters because of his price tag. Then-GM Dave Littlefield caused more outrage when he announced Moskos, who signed for $2.475 million, would be a reliever. Clemson moved him into its rotation during the spring and several clubs believed he has the pitches to start as a pro.

First outing, I'm not too worried about it. Harang was far from good too.

Pelland in.

Tyler Pelland in to relieve Maloney. A sac bunt followed by a sac fly tie the game at 5.

Roenicke Ks Nady with some high heat.

Marty says Roenicke throws the hardest in camp (no surprise there), followed by Johnny Cueto. I mean I knew he could bring it, but I didn't know JC threw harder than Bailey and Volquez.

Yep, Bautista goes down swinging. Two Ks and then a flyout for Roenicke's inning of work.

Matt, you're too quick for me. :)

He's hitting .500 through 8 atbats.

Drew Anderson lines a single into left to score Rosales. Tie game at 6.

Also, there's two out, not one.

this should be good...

Things are going better for Majooski so far. A broken bat ground out and a strikeout so far...

Screwball
03-01-2008, 04:09 PM
If my math is correct, that inning without damamge drops Maj's ERA to a slightly less laughable 40.5.

How we lookin'?

Jim Brower allows 2 runs to score in the top of 9th. 10-9 Reds with 1 out.

Screwball
03-01-2008, 05:14 PM
Brower gives up another base hit. Runners on 1st and 3rd with 1 out. Score still at 10-9.

Dusty's seen enough and calls for a lefty to relieve Brower.

Edit - the lefty is Jon Coutlangus.

03-01-2008, 05:18 PM
Brower might just be done. No way he makes this team.

Coutlangus walks the LHB. Bases now loaded with just the 1 out.

Baker goes out to the mound to make another pitching change.

This team doesn't have any LH Pitching whatsoever. Affeldt can be run of the mill in the pen and that is the best hope.

Maloney, Pelland and Viola need to come quickly.

Jon Adkins the pitcher. He walks home the tying run. 10-10, bases still loaded with 1 out.

After a sac fly to CF, the Pirates go ahead 11-10. Two down.

In the bottom of the 9th, Cabrera gets a double. Keppinger to the plate with 1 out.

Keppinger goes down swinging after working the count full. 2 down, runner on 2nd, and Craig Tatum is up to bat.

Screwball

Tatum smokes one to deep left! It hits off the wall and he's able to cruise into 2nd. His double scores Cabrera. Tie game at 11.

Hatt now steps in with a chance to end it.
