Very light game thread. I guess with Taveras out there's nothing to say.

Reds down by two, Hairston up in the fourth, let's get that big offense going.

One out. Chisox shortstop Ramirez can move out there. Gets Hairston on a nice play on slow grounder.

Two outs. Nix doubles. The tension is unbearable. Can Hernandez knock him in? Yes, double to right. 2-1 Chisox.

Lead off triple followed by a ball pulled to 3rd and now Arroyo has to try and get him in.

It's kind of to be expected in a bottom-of-the-order inning. It's all the other innings that take their toll.

Hanigan shouldn't be hitting in the bottom of the order.

Kc61
06-19-2009, 09:48 PM
Arroyo pitches out of trouble with man on second. Arroyo's best ability as a pitcher, IMO, is working out of trouble. Along with durability. And probably the mental toughness to pitch for a team that doesn't score runs.

Going to the bottom of the sixth the Sox lead the Reds 2-1.

Reds have failed to knock in man on third with one out and then another with no out. Time to maybe score a couple of runs somehow.

Brandon with an uppercut swing going for the homer recognizing that getting the man over to third is a useless exercise.

Good job Brandon.

Reds TV guys talking to Sugar Ray Leonard. Great fighter. Wonder if he can bat leadoff.

Nix singles.

Ryan Hanigan sure puts the bat on the ball with consistency. I like him. Real nice all around package behind and at the plate.

All Hanigan does is keep hitting when Votto comes back it will be hard to get him out of the lineup

What they ought to do is trade Hernandez. They won't, but they should. Bring up Tatum to back up Hanigan.

It's a risk, I know, but it would save a lot of money.

Hanigan has earned the starting catcher's job, it's undeniable. But they won't do it. They'll start Hernandez behind the plate and Hanigan will play twice a week.

Hanigan should be batting second in the lineup, even first until the team gets a genuine lead off threat. If Willy must play, hit him at the bottom of the order unless and until he gets going.

Hope bullpen is ready. Six good innings from Bronson, but he just walked the leadoff guy in the 7th on four pitches.

They will hit for Arroyo after this inning. Let's hope the Reds are still in front.

Second high throw by Hanigan and Sox steal second base. Maybe I awarded Hanigan the starting job a bit hastily.

Good move by Dusty here bring Rhodes in to face Thome

membengal
06-19-2009, 10:17 PM
By the way, reports of Mike Leake's demise may be exaggerated. He is pitching tonite on short rest for ASU. Either the reports of his "serious tendinitis" were wrong, or ASU is risking the kid's career.

Props to Dusty, by the way, for being ready with Rhodes here. Good move.

Not happy about taking Janish out, doesn't make much sense to me especially in late innings

Great from Dusty. Thome was 2 for 21 coming in against Rhodes, now 2 for 22 with that pop out. Good deal having Rhodes ready for that spot.

Double from Dickerson with one out in the 7th. Second hit of the nite from the Reds' leadoff guy. Um, "nice to see" is the phrase that is running through my mind.

Double for Dickerson. Two hits from the leadoff position in one game? So THAT's what it's like.

membengal
06-19-2009, 10:31 PM
JHJ singles to RF, Dickerson held up at 3b. Surprised Dickerson didn't score on that. Not the world's best base-running from Dickerson there.

1st and 3rd, one out, Phillips up.

Dotel is the one pitching for Chicago.

I think Stormy was warming, and will likely be in for the 8th.

Head scratching move to take Janish out so Rhodes can face the light hitting Podsednik. I don't like the move but I hope it works.

Rhodes was brought into face Thome. It made perfect sense.

Just watched the JHJ and BPhill at bats. What a microcosm of this year.

JRJ swung at several horrible pitches and nearly fell down on one swing.

BPhil gets up and hacks away at the first pitch.

Yet somehow JHJ gets a single, Brandon eeks out a sac fly that scores a run.

Homer Bailey
06-19-2009, 10:36 PM
Rhodes was brought into face Thome. It made perfect sense.

But why the double switch? So Rhodes could face Pods? It was clearly the right move to match Rhodes with Thome, but why take out the better defender?

membengal
06-19-2009, 10:37 PM
Not sure on that. Perhaps to keep JHJ's bat in the game? JHJ got a hit, helping to set up the fourth run, so it paid off.

Rhodes gets Podsednik to fly out, and now Stormy is being brought in with one out in the Chicago 8th.

KoryMac5
06-19-2009, 10:39 PM

Dusty loves the double switch, he put Rosales at third and move JHJ to short. I didn't like the move either as JHJ is a liabilty with the glove though I do like his play at short better.

Homer Bailey
06-19-2009, 10:40 PM
A simple pitcher for pitcher sub would not have taken Hairston's bat out of the lineup. It's not what I would have done, but it's not the worst move I've seen.

Homer Bailey
06-19-2009, 10:41 PM
Ground out to Hairston so I'm wrong so far.

KoryMac5

Right handed hitters need to be right on top of the plate with Weathers as he is automatic painting the outside corner these days.

His defense at short has actually been pretty good this season, awful at third though.

He was a pretty big disaster there last year though. He's not a shortstop long term thats for sure. Appreciate his versatility though.
