I liked the shot he took at the former Reds regime there -- thanking the Washington Nationals and Jim Bowden for giving him a job after his playing career was over.

_Sir_Charles_
07-19-2008, 08:38 PM
I know. I can't get over how long he's rambling. I mean it's his night, I get it...but seriously, somebody needs to run over there and tackle him. :D

Did you see Johnny Bench checking the time on his phone?

priceless...he looked aggrevated

Big Klu
07-19-2008, 08:42 PM
i missed the beginning...did the chief get to speak?

Yes. It was brief and to-the-point. He thanked the Reds, and said that he was very proud to be a part of the BRM. He then concluded by thanking the fans--"the best fans in the world".

Gainesville Red
07-19-2008, 08:44 PM
All part of the Larkins' plan to get in Perez's head.

Big Klu
07-19-2008, 08:44 PM
priceless...he looked aggrevated

He probably was--I'm sure it's quite warm out there, and they are wearing red blazers.

I agree with Sir charles--I like Larkin, but that went a little long.

Joey Jay looked pretty good for being a month short of his 73rd birthday.

Red in Chicago
07-19-2008, 08:52 PM
it sure is nice to keep reyes off the bases...

Caveat Emperor
07-19-2008, 08:52 PM
Reds need Fogg to come up big -- with Burton gone from the bullpen, it becomes more important to pitch deep into the game and not count on guys like Coffey to provide outs.

Red in Chicago
07-19-2008, 08:54 PM
reyes fly out to center
chavez ground out to second
wright double to left

07-19-2008, 08:56 PM
Oh of course.

Red in Chicago
07-19-2008, 08:56 PM
beltran grounds to first, but when joey throws to fogg, he misses it...run scores, beltran to second

_Sir_Charles_
07-19-2008, 08:57 PM
Decent toss by Votto, Fogg just muffed it.

Kc61
07-19-2008, 08:57 PM
Joey should have flipped that one. He threw it full speed and Fogg couldn't catch it on the run. Error should have been on Votto, not Fogg.

07-19-2008, 08:59 PM

Why the Reds are starting all these lefty hitters tonight against Perez is beyond me. I hope they prove me wrong.

_Sir_Charles_
07-19-2008, 09:03 PM
Marty was just talking about showing patience facing Perez. Saying you can't go up there hacking that he'll walk people. Jay shows patience and looks at 2 right down the middle.

Kepp with a single! ...hacking at the first pitch. :O)

1-0 Mets going into the bottom half of the 2nd.

Dunner, Edwin & Joey coming up.

_Sir_Charles_
07-19-2008, 09:15 PM
Tight strikezone tonight.

Dunner is out on a hard liner to second....absolutely smashed.

_Sir_Charles_
07-19-2008, 09:16 PM
Base hit for Edwin, first pitch swinging.

_Sir_Charles_
07-19-2008, 09:17 PM
Deep fly out to right for Votto. 2 down.

Kc61
07-19-2008, 09:17 PM
All the lefties have made out, as Votto flies out. Two of the righties have hits, Kepp and EE.

Notice a pattern. Not a wise lineup tonight. Couldn't Griffey have used a night off before tomorrow's day game?

Maybe Ross will do something.

_Sir_Charles_
07-19-2008, 09:19 PM
The hot hitting David Ross...strikes out swinging. 3 down.

At the end of 2, 1-0 Mets.

Kc61
07-19-2008, 09:20 PM
So, we have a lefty hitting lineup against Perez. Josh Fogg pitching. Mets a hot team. Reds make a big error in the first.

This one is going to be tough.

_Sir_Charles_
07-19-2008, 09:21 PM
Top of the 3rd, Fogg facing Perez, Reyes and Chavez. 24 pitches so far, 17 strikes.

WVRedsFan
07-19-2008, 09:21 PM
The hot hitting David Ross...strikes out swinging. 3 down.

At the end of 2, 1-0 Mets.Not hot against Perez as he is now 1-21 against him, but what are Dusty's choices? I mean, the catchers simply are clueless at the plate for the most part.

_Sir_Charles_
07-19-2008, 09:22 PM
I really like Jim Kelch (sp?) doing the play by play. Sooooo much better than Brantley...or heck, even Marty lately.

_Sir_Charles_
07-19-2008, 09:22 PM
Perez pops out to Dunner.

Kc61
07-19-2008, 09:23 PM
Not hot against Perez as he is now 1-21 against him, but what are Dusty's choices? I mean, the catchers simply are clueless at the plate for the most part.


The catcher is the right choice tonight. But Cabrera should be in there somewhere. Maybe Andy Phillips too.

_Sir_Charles_
07-19-2008, 09:24 PM
Reyes pops out to Phillips. So far, the Reds have really been handling Reyes very well this series. Supposedly the key to stopping the Mets.

Kc61
07-19-2008, 09:24 PM
As the Mets announcers have said, Jose Reyes is aiming for the right field fence here. Popping everything up.

_Sir_Charles_
07-19-2008, 09:25 PM
Nice quick inning for Fogg. Grounded out to Kepp. 37 pitches through 3. 1-0 Mets.

_Sir_Charles_
07-19-2008, 09:26 PM
As the Mets announcers have said, Jose Reyes is aiming for the right field fence here. Popping everything up.

Fine by me. He can do that all series as far as I'm concerned. Hmmm...odd for the Mets announcers to be insightful. :O)

_Sir_Charles_
07-19-2008, 09:27 PM
Bottom half of the 3rd with Fogg, Bruce & Kepp coming up.

_Sir_Charles_
07-19-2008, 09:28 PM
Fogg with a leadoff single. *faints from the shock* :O)

_Sir_Charles_

_Sir_Charles_
07-19-2008, 09:31 PM
Wow, what is Kepp looking for? Two perfect pitches he just looks at.

_Sir_Charles_
07-19-2008, 09:32 PM
Kepp with a deep fly out to Tatis. 2 down and Fogg holds at first.

_Sir_Charles_
07-19-2008, 09:33 PM
JUNIOR!!! Double off the wall. Fogg scores. 1-1 ballgame.

Kc61
07-19-2008, 09:33 PM
Beltran misjudged that shot by Griffey and then didn't play it well off the wall. Nice break for Griff and the Reds. Tie game.

_Sir_Charles_
07-19-2008, 09:34 PM
Uh-oh, my wife just arrived with Fajitas in tow. Somebody else will have to take over for PBP. :O)

RedlegJake

Fogg isn't pitching badly at all. A run that shouldn;t have scored and Wright's homer. But since its Josh Fogg even if he pitches well lets villify him.

RedlegJake
07-19-2008, 09:48 PM
Dunn walks to lead things off

He's obviously turned a corner from his pre-DL blechitude.

Too bad he didn't start the season with a run of decent starts like this.

I smell a Ross homerun this inning.

Nice sac bunt by Fogg. 2 out, men on 2nd & 3rd.

Ltlabner
07-19-2008, 09:58 PM
Sure looks like he caught it to me.

Unfortunatley.

RedlegJake
07-19-2008, 10:01 PM
Votto and EE advance on Foggs sac. Bruce pops a foul that is trapped against the pads and the Mets argue it's a catch but the call stands. 1-1 on Bruce.

RedlegJake
07-19-2008, 10:01 PM
Bruce makes it moot by popping out. 2-2

Adam Dunn has the most putouts of any leftfielder in the league.

And the most homeruns in the majors in the last three years.

RedlegJake
07-19-2008, 10:05 PM
3 of his last 4 starts Perez has held opponents scoreless. He has been a 5 inning pitcher this year so we may be near the end for him.

_Sir_Charles_
07-19-2008, 10:05 PM
Bench, Morgan, Concepcion, Geronimo, Larkin, Pokey....and I'm stumped.

RedlegJake
07-19-2008, 10:06 PM
Perez with a double. 1 down after the Schneider fly out to Dunn. Pitchers seem to get a lot of hits against the Reds

_Sir_Charles_

Rose & Eric Davis...I forgot about them. But that's 8 already. It must've been 3 or more.

_Sir_Charles_
07-19-2008, 10:12 PM
Tommy Helms won 2 as well. Yep, it had to be 7 Reds who won THREE or more.

flyer85
07-19-2008, 10:12 PM
Reds make 2 outs on 2 pitches neither which looked to be a strike

RedlegJake
07-19-2008, 10:12 PM
Red 2 up 2 down as Kepp pops out and Junior flies out. BP up.

RedlegJake
07-19-2008, 10:13 PM
BP grounds out and Reds go 1-2-3 for the first time. End of 5. 2-2

_Sir_Charles_
07-19-2008, 10:16 PM
McMillan, Davis, Geronimo, Bench, Morgan, Concepcion & Larkin was the answer (and yes, it was 3 or more GG's)

RedlegJake
07-19-2008, 10:17 PM
Wright singles to lead off. Wright is good. Just sayin'

RedlegJake
07-19-2008, 10:17 PM
Now Beltran singles. 0 out. 1st and 2nd as Pole goes to the mound to settle Fogg down (...hey Josh now would be a good time for another DP)

07-19-2008, 10:17 PM
Back to back lead off singles to Wright and Beltran.

Dunn rips a hit, Kepp scores, BP to 3rd. 5-2 Reds now.

Earlier in the game, Mets announcers said that Dunn leads NL left fielders in outfield put outs. He seems to be more active, covering more ground this year.

Offensively, Dunn has been terrific lately.

Right now, if I'm a contending GM who's paying attention and isn't hung up on BA, I'm calling Walt about Adam Dunn.

Dunn is now 6 for 9 against Feliciano.
Thats surprising considering how tough Feliciano can be on lefties.

I think a big part of it is him having that knee surgery this past offseason.

* 17.1 IP, 15H, 5ER, 8K, 4BB.

Nice work. 2 quality starts. Only non-QS was 5.1 innings and only 1 hit allowed.

If Weathers holds them, hope they don't use Cordero. Bray, maybe.

With Maj and Coffey in the pen right now, not that many options in a winning game.

I would use Coffey. Seriously. Get him into a game right away with little or no pressure.

Bako PHing for Weathers. It would almost be as effective to just let Stormy hit.

10 pitch AB for Bako ending in a flyout to left. All in all a pretty darned solid AB. Not the right outcome...but really fought in that one.

$3 million for a 9th inning replacement, which is about the only thing he's good for. Thankfully, FINALLY, Dusty is realizing that.

Gotta love it.
