Time to make hay; their bullpen looms.

Maybe they can keep the Reds under 10.

Simple. FSN is a bunch of commies that hate shows that get good ratings. ;)

Arroyo is at 87 pitches... leave him in for the 6th?

I'd say yes. He escaped a big jam in the 5th, and he's facing the bottom of the linup.

Fly out, runner moves to third. Reds need to catch the ball now and hold the Mets to one run at most. Bottom of the order, no extra outs now.

Falls City Beer

Typical Reds' pitching: get a lead--squander it (to the bottom third of the order).

Arroyo with 100 pitches. One more inning for him. He needs a good one, the top of the order guys will be up for the Mets. I would assume we'll see Weathers set up today, he sat yesterday.

Over the last two days, the Reds have scored 15 runs, and this game ain't over yet.

Perhaps the offense is a tad underrated?

I think so. The thing that I've noticed is, even in the loss to Santana, they are very patient. Even guys like Taveras and Phillips have shown an ability to take pitches. Hopefully it's the start of a new trend.

Perhaps it's a small sample size? Even crappy offenses can get hot for short bursts. I hope you are right though. I'd love to see the offense exceed expectations.

I don't think you can take him out now. The Reds can't use 3 and 4 relievers every game. They need to get guys up in the pen and see how it goes.

Besides, who knows how the relievers will do. Arroyo has been ok in the last few innings.

I would leave BA in until he gives up a runner.

Votto is on fire.

Isn't Arroyo's pitch count around 100? I don't think you send him back out. 6 innings and the lead is a fair day's work from him.

Go Herrera if need be.

Tom Servo

Another plus of Votto potentially really breaking through is that it would put less pressure on Bruce to be "the man".

100 is a round number but it doesn't mean much. 120 is the cut off for most managers these days.

If Burton hadn't pitched last night, maybe he goes two, but he did so I wouldn't use him now. I'd stick with BA for a couple of batters, see how it goes, then Weathers and Coco.

I think it's safe to assume that with the Reds' pitching, a lead for the Reds is an illusion till the last out is recorded.

I think so. The thing that I've noticed is, even in the loss to Santana, they are very patient. Even guys like Taveras and Phillips have shown an ability to take pitches. Hopefully it's the start of a new trend.

I think the offense is going to improve throughout the season as the team practices patience, starts to read and familiarize themselves with pitchers (one general area where a young team can improve), and as the players learn what to expect from each other as hitters as well. A relatively consistent batting order will help with this, incidentally. They're young hitters; give 'em structure.

I still think the offense has some really problematic gaps, but it does have inherent room for improvement if the players are handled well. And that's nice.

Kc61
04-09-2009, 02:44 PM

It IS indeed a round number. And Arroyo is working through an injury and his pitch counts have not been that high as spring ended. He's gone far enough.

Thank goodness the Mets are gone. That lineup scares me. I know people bagged on the Reds pitching, but maybe it's just the Mets offense? The Mets did score the second most runs in the NL last year despite playing half their games in a pitchers park.

Arroyo was decent today considering the defense behind him. Hopefully the defense will improve as the season moves on. Phillips is usually rock solid, and Taveras should be better than McDonald.

C'mooooonnnnnnnn guys. Any time an unfavorable play happens, it makes this thread nearly unreadable. Not the end of the world. Only 8-5.

Exactly. I agree completely cincrazy. It's only 3 games into the season and I'm already getting annoyed by the overzealous pessimism. Errors are going to happen, strikeouts are going to happen, walks are going to happen, baserunning mistakes are going to happen...but NONE of them are going to signal the end of the season. Lighten up and enjoy the fact that baseball season is back. It's early...and ANYTHING can happen.

A good win and the way the Reds did it was very encouraging. Despite having a "Sunday Lineup," the Reds scored 8 runs! Of course, the bulk of the runs came from the so-called "regulars" (Votto, Phillips, Bruce, Encarnacion, Traveras and Dickerson) who scored and drove in 5 of the runs--an average of .333. McDonald, Nix, Hannigan, and Janish combined for 3 hits and 3 runs. Not bad. It has become apparent that Encarnacion and Bruce are off to horrendous starts. The same could be said for Burton and Lincoln. Rhodes and Codero (today) have been lights out. Volquez and Arroyo looked shaky, but Harang looked fine. It should be an interesting year.

One question remains...what kind of justice is it that give Harang a loss in allowing 2 runs while Arroyo gets a win giving up 5? That's baseball!

So far, Weathers, Rhodes, and Cordero have indeed looked incredible.

Bruce and Encarnacion need to get it going. I'm sure Bruce will, but EE is so inconsistent that you never know when he'll hit a stride.

Encarnacion has five walks and a single in three games. Bruce is 2-for-12 with a double and a walk. Not a great start but it's a very small sample size. He narrowly missed a RBI double by two inches last night, and then later just missed a homer by a foot or two.

McDonald did fine at the top of the lineup (on base twice), and Janish had a huge two-out two-run single. Their contributions to the win should not be minimized.

EE is struggling swinging the bat but he's still getting on base. He's not killing them at the plate.

A....It has become apparent that Encarnacion and Bruce are off to horrendous starts. The same could be said for Burton and Lincoln. Rhodes and Codero (today) have been lights out. Volquez and Arroyo looked shaky, but Harang looked fine. It should be an interesting year. ....

Any start that can be changed 180 degrees in one day I cannot really call horrendous. If Jay goes 3-4 next game he's up to .313 BA. EdE's getting on at a .538 clip. If he goes 2 for 3 next game he's batting .300 as well. It's all so early to say anything other than "that right there was a great (or poor)play/AB". Trends have not really been established yet, although we can hope we're seeing one from Votto!! :):beerme:

So is Dickerson just not going to play against lefties at all?

I was very perplexed walking into GABP this afternoon and seeing Darnell McDonald hitting second.

I feel Dickerson should just play.

BTW - if you haven't seen it, the new video stuff is extremely cool. The Skyline Shuffle will be lost a few times this year. It shuffles pretty good.

Well, Pac, he really did get knocked around. Just not enough to doom the team. Of course this was against the Mets who are one of the best offensive clubs in baseball.

After the initial shock of two losses we should have won due to (gasp) fielding errors (without having those horrible fielders Ken Griffey Jr, Adam Dunn, and I forget who else in the lineup:)), the team looked pretty good today. Not good enough to contend for the division title, but good enough to maybe eek out a .500 season. Little steps.
