Good to see the guys make the pitcher earn his outs for once. 15 pitches in the first for Pettite. The Yankees middle relief is pretty soft, so I'd love to get Pettite out in the 6th at the latest.

That would have been a great time to throw the changeup there. I'm amazed at the lack of usage of the changeup by Cueto. It's not him it's the catchers calling the pitches,

19 pitches in the first. Cueto still needs to throw more early strikes and nibble less. Though it's completely understandable against this offense.

Damnit. 0-2 count and hits Giambi with a fastball. Again that is a great time for a changeup to a lefty.

I'm with OBM... throw the change to Posada here 2-2!

Nice pitch. Posada strikes out looking. Giambi steals 2nd.

OnBaseMachine

Posada K's looking. Giambi steals second. He would have been out by a mile by Ross dropped the ball. Watch that run score now thanks to Ross.

Strike 3 looking on another nasty slider.

David Ross catches 4 out of every 5 balls thrown to him. He'd be a good defensive catcher on a T-Ball team.

Cueto looks more composed today than he has in several of the other starts I've seen this year.

Homer Bailey
06-22-2008, 01:45 PM
As glaringly bad as the Reds defense has been in the field this year, I think the catcher position is their weakest defensively, and offensively for that matter.

Matt700wlw
06-22-2008, 01:46 PM
Patterson been juicing? His bat all of a sudden has some pop.

As glaringly bad as the Reds defense has been in the field this year, I think the catcher position is their weakest defensively, and offensively for that matter.

It would be except for the regular RF. IMO, JR and David Ross are the two worst regular defenders in Baseball. Says a lot when the scatter armed 3B, frequently misplaying 1B, range challenged SS and oafish looking LF don't even make the top two on their own team.

Puig Your Red

Word has it Edwin didn't hustle on his leap.

What?

OnBaseMachine

1-2 changeup to Cabrera gets him to bounce out slowly to 1B.

06-22-2008, 01:52 PM
I don't think Votto's been bad at all at first.

He shows promise IMO and I actually thougt he was above average early in the year, but he had a pretty bad stretch.

I haven't seen a lot of the more recent games.

There was a stretch of at least 3 straight games where he failed to scoop some pretty simple ones. Some argue that the infielders just made bad throws, but I'm from the mold that a 1B should be able save his infielders from time to time.

This team is so damn frustrating, show life by going to NY and winning two in a row having a chance to win this game and you can't bunt and you get picked off first. Why? I could understand if it was somebody who actually had a chance to steal second but it's David Ross, he's not going anywhere.

If his slider is working so well maybe that is why the changeup is not being used as much?

I know Soto started overusing it in 1985...he was basically trying to work a slider in but he could never do it.

A .446 OPS (coming into today) with a somewhat shaky glove (which is supposed to be his best part) along with Keppinger back now and Hairston not far away? He's proven he is not ready for major league baseball. He's up because of injuries, now we don't need him.

On the surface, it looked like good strategy. Janish is not a hitter (why do we have so many of those?), so he thought he could beat one out and give it to Votto with the bases loaded. If it had worked, it would have been brilliant. Since it didn't, fire Dusty. The trouble is the hitters on this team in this case. So many easy outs.

Well, I'd say Dusty cost the Reds at least the possibility of 1 run that inning.

I guess we've established that Dusty gave Janish the bunt sign. Janish couldn't have decided to bunt when he saw ARod playing deep.

Or maybe Dusty blew it when he told Votto to strike out.

Dusty's probably also is at fault because Keppinger couldn't run to second on the bloop because of his bad knee. Dusty really has to watch himself causing those injuries.

But Dusty's biggest mistake was telling Cueto to give up a run with bad weather coming.

Of course....people are now going to bring out the Dusty costs us a run stuff....come on.....it's the lack of any situational hitting....more so than trying for a bunt basehit. I would rather see him work the count a little ....and then with 1 strike try it...

I am sure Janish will go back this week when Hairston comes back. The only thing that would change that would be if Edwin continues to have back problems.

I don't agree. With Janish, a bunt is his best play. He has such a small chance of getting a hit may as well bunt the runners over. A good bunt would have helped.

If it was Janish's decision alone, it was still a bad one.

You could be right, very possible, but I hope not. Janish adds a lot to the team defensively and his bat isn't the worst I've seen. He can take a walk, like earlier this game, is patient up there.

He's a young guy with great defensive ability and I'd rather keep him to back up second, third and short.

Since Hairston can play the outfield, I'd rather see Patterson go down. With Hairston and Hopper available, the Reds are covered defensively out there. Patterson plays excellent defense but he can't hit and has no real future with the team. Janish does have a future as a backup.

Sure, and I wasn't pointing my finger at you, TRF. It just seems that everyone is determined to blame every footfall on Dusty when it's the players that are mainly at fault.

I'd like to know who did give the bunt sign, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was Baker.

I do not think it was a bad decision to try and bunt....with AR that far back....just a bad pitch to bunt....high and a little outside.

It would have been better to at least take 1 strike...and with AP using breaking balls most of the time....he could have worked the count more.

Votto looked like he could not see very well on the last pitch...but his whole at bat was bad, to me.

Agree. Janish was not selective and Votto appeared to be fishing. Pettitte is tough on lefty hitters though, so that could have explained why Votto looked so bad.
