Piniella moved him to the bullpen for pretty much this occassion.

Well, that and their bullpen kinda sucks.

Thats about as good a job on the bunt by CD as could be expected but really, it's a wasted out given first base is open and now Nix is matched against a lefty.

Reason why the sac is dumb. They just IBB the next guy anyway, giving up an out losing the better hitter.

No further evidence is needed for Walt to go out and get a bat for this team. Nix was lost against Marshall nin that at bat.

Fairly putrid efforts from the left fielders Nix and Gomes. When EE gets back I'd begrudgingly put Hairston in LF and let it go.

Isn't Hairston supposed to be one of Dusty's speedburners? I thought the '09 Reds were all about stealing bases.

Bruce is not swinging as hard as he was early in the year. It's like someone told him to cut down on the big hacks. Problem is, when he does "connect" it's not going as far.

Nice walk from Bruce as I'm typing this.

Great plays by Dickerson, solid play by everyone else, and little league defense by the Cubs.

This was the type of game we've lost over the last couple years. Winning all game, blow a lead, game goes to extra innings... but this time we recovered and won the game. This just feels like a different year. (Well, when we're not in San Diego at least.)

RedlegJake

I think this was a really big win...29-26, gained some ground, and losing with the injuries, the scraping along trying so hard - they needed this one. These guys would not have quit trying if they lost but winning this one has to be a huge shot in psyche for them.

Nice debut for Maloney. Who'd have thunk Hernandez and Hanigan would be two of the offense's main cogs last March? Reds obviously need Joey back but getting Bruce untracked is almost as important.

Maloney did a very good job. I liked the confidence he showed. It seems that so many guys get the call, then think they have to do something different than they've been doing to get people out (Homer, I'm talking to you) rather than realizing that what got them here is what will keep them here or not.

I'm still not convinced Dickerson can hit enough, but he is starting to make some folks who put him in center from the start look like they called that one.

No doubt and has been hitting the ball to boot. With the hatred for Willie Tavares around here, the popular thing is to promote Chris for Center, but I'm still not convinced. Yeah, he may be a somewhat better option than Willy T, but I think he better fits into the twice a week category. We still need a hitting outfielder. Bruce needs to go back to AAA to get his mechanics straight and right field is a mess. Wonder if Jermaine Dye is still available :).

Bruce needs to go back to AAA to get his mechanics straight and right field is a mess. Wonder if Jermaine Dye is still available :).Bruce is being schooled, it has nothing to do with his stroke. The league figured out "no fastballs in the zone, offspeed anywhere and he'll chase." That is making an approach adjustment. And if Marty can recognize this, and me for that matter, then I am sure this is being worked on by the coaches. AAA pitchers are not going to be able to do what major league pitchers are day in and day out to help him work through the adjustment.
