If Gameday is to be believed, BP just swung at a pitch a foot outside and low.

Haha I saw that too, except I didn't see who it was at first. I muttered to myself, "Phillips?" and sure enough it was him.

Good grief. Humberto Quintero belts a one out solo homerun to make it 2-0. Quintero has two homeruns in 118 atbats this season, both homers have been against the Reds.

BRM
08-28-2008, 04:07 PM
2 might be enough with the way Backe is pitching.

I just looked...it was Masset.

Is it the way he's pitching or the way the Reds are hacking?

Perhaps Aaron has some design ideas for moving the fences back at Minute Maid Park as well...I'm kidding, I'm kidding I love Harang...

Good question. The Reds appear to be hacking but it's hard to tell watching Gameday.

Correct on Massett. I was at that game. With two outs in the inning, Michael Bourn hit a groundball down the line that Massett bobbled for an error. Quintero followed with a 2-run homer that would've never happened had Masset not committed that error.

Well the last one was WAY outside (I'm watching). Umps want to go home.
Berkman came off the bag on Kepp's grounder and still got the out.

Big sigh.

Another game in which we score 2 runs (and only 6 hits) and the pitchers give up 3 runs. That was a winable game with an offense that isn't emasulated and a manager (see, I'm coming around) who doesn't have a clue on how to use what he has left.

Of course, what is left is pitiful, so let's call the whole thing off.

I feel sorry for Harang. He never dreamed that all of the offense would be traded away, did he?
