A few years ago I was at a Reds/Pads game in San Diego when DaMeet was playing regularly. I got into a conversation with the Pads fan sitting next to me and ended up betting him a beer that if DaMeet came up at least 4 times in that game that he would swing at the first pitch at least three times. By Young's third AB (around the 5th inning) I had my beer.

I would be pretty confident about making that same bet with Corey Patterson in the lineup. :p:

I'm watching the game on WGN. Keppinger, or the left fielder, should easily have caught the pop up and EE fell down on what was really a routine sacrifice to handle. Fortunately Soriano cooperated by hitting a ball right to EE at the bag. The inning painfully underscored what I consider to be truth number one if this team is going to be any better next year: we need a real SS and a real 3B. Defensively the left side has got to be the worst in baseball.

Just an observation. I hate the Cubs, but they have this fan following because the team continues to improve itself. We all laughed when they spent all that money two years ago, and no they haven't won anything yet, but I imagine it's a lot more fun to be a Cubs fan than a Reds fan these days. They have (hopefully) little hope, but it's a helluva lot more hope than we have. In the meantime, our team continued to say that we were ready to contend when we were far from it depending on lots of second tier players.

Even so, I still hate the Cubs and especially since I have to listen to their TV guys. Terrible.

I made a similar bet last year @ Shea when Harang took on John Maine.

I bet the guy Phillips would swing at the 1st pitch 75% of the time. IIRC, he hit a 1st pitch grand slam in the 1st inning, and then I know he swung at the 1st pitch at least one more time.

Long story short, the Mets fan ended up buying 2 rounds for me and my fiancee, and I ended up buying him 2 rounds later on for something involving Jose Reyes.

This is one of those games where the Reds are hurt by not having any September call ups to use. With Dickerson unavailable, Dusty only has Bako, Valentin, and Castillo left on the bench. So he used Andy Phillips there, and got a strikeout. Andy Phillips now hitting .210 on the year.
