Cueto better pitch well. That's our 4 or less lineup.

Glad Dusty's become so attached to it (7th game with this batting order so far this season).

Patterson's OBP over his last 20 AB's is .364. I think most of it with Dusty is speed at the top, but CP has a somewhat hot bat right now. best ride it while he can.

I beleive someone said the same thing about our lineup Sunday, except that Volquez would need a shutout to get a win.

Just glad to see the first game thread I started has helped caused all the fuss.

The Reds best hitter is batting 6th.

That's not right.

3 hits. Oh well.

Patterson led off the game with a single and then they didn't get another hit until two outs in the 9th when Phillips hit a bloop single and Dunn followed with a 2-run HR. This offense is not very good. Joel Pineiro is a bad pitcher...no way he should hold this team scoreless over seven innings.

Hopefully Harang can throw a gem tomorrow and the Reds come away with two of three.

Unreal how many line drive outs they made. I think Brantley counted about 7 or 8 of 'em there at the end of the game. Just one of those nights.

That is a positive note, they were hitting some hard, that should turn into hits and runs in the coming games.

Yeah I thought that they would rock Pineiro tonight, shows how much I know. ;)

Pineiro use to be a good pitcher, but as you say now.

What I wouldn't give to see the Reds have Duncan the pitching coach.

Just got back.

Notes:

Busch is a nice ball park.
The food and beer servers put on a hard sell hawking food and beer all night.
The hot dog I had was tasteless and the bun was dry. The pretzel was dry also.

I was with some Cardinal fans and they were having a good time at my expense.

It was pretty chilly out today, when the weather warms up, those line drive outs will carry better. (they will be outs at the warning track)

Has Kep been taking lessen from Freel on how to "not" run the bases?

At least Pujols didn't do any damage tonight.

A lot of the Cardinal fans left before the 7th Inning.

I think that debacle in the first inning knocked the wind right out of their sails, including Cueto.

Yeah, sure did seem like it, didnt it. If only Griffey's shot had been 3 feet to the left...

Agreed. Once that baserunner play happend and the Cards put up a 3 spot, this one was as gone as done.

don't use quotes with the code tags.

That is what I was trying to figure out. I read but still did not get "it"

I used then I tried " "
code with brackets and close code etc.
it did not align correctly for me

what is the correct code ?

I thought that lineup threads would be more interesting if others or I would pop in the stats to give a cross reference when discussing future lineups .

How do you do what TRF did above?

You need to make sure everything is aligned in a plain text editor first -- just use MS Notepad. Then place the [ code ] and [ /code ] tags around the pasted text.

That's weird,

Thank you I was driving myself nuts reading the directions, then reading the pages source code and trying different things. Amazing what a little piece of information will do.

I must be a little dense, I have been told more than once to use notepad.


Thank you.
