Sizemore bloops a single, Cabrera was running and gets to third. 1st and 3rd, no outs.

Hairston might've gotten that if he had IMPACT GEL INSOLES.

Bruce almost hits a JUPITER JACK the other way.

Tom Servo
06-28-2009, 02:33 PM
Janish K's to end the inning. He's no samuari shark.

nate
06-28-2009, 02:36 PM
Owings needs to settle down. Otherwise, he might dig himself a hole more quickly than if he used an AWESOME AUGER.

Tom Servo
06-28-2009, 02:36 PM
Garko singles to right. Could have been a double but Bruce got to it quickly and Garko fears him.

Valbuena flies out to center. 1 out, 1 on.

nate
06-28-2009, 02:39 PM
Valbuena within inches of a JUPITER JACK himself.

Tom Servo

BP singles in 2 RBI! 2-1 Reds.

Tom Servo
06-28-2009, 02:58 PM
Gomes flies out to right, but it's too shallow for Votto to try it. 2 outs, runners on 1st and 3rd.

WVRedsFan
06-28-2009, 02:58 PM
I guess they've figured Gomes out. First pitch pop up. No patience.

Tom Servo

Razor Ramon triples off the wall! Plates two. 4-1 Reds!

WVRedsFan

This guys is getting worked here....let him keep working.

4-1 Reds

It hit the wall and rolled about 100 feet back toward CF before the left fielder got to the ball.

Tom Servo
06-28-2009, 03:03 PM
Bruce flies out to the warning track for the 3rd out. 4-1 Reds going to the bottom of the third.

I have now seen both Ramon Hernandez and Ryan Hanigan hit triples. I can die a happy man.

Tony Cloninger
06-28-2009, 03:04 PM
I just think Gomes guessed he would throw a big fat one down the middle.....i think he has already been figured out long before that.

Tom Servo
06-28-2009, 03:07 PM
Owings K's Francisco. 1 out.
Cabrera grounds out to second. 2 out.
Sizemore walks.

I guess they've figured Gomes out. First pitch pop up. No patience.


Even a player with a 1.034 OPS (1.111 vs. LH) makes an out on occasion.

When he puts the first pitch into play this year, he was hitting .500. It's not always a good strategy to take the first pitch from a pitcher who's throwing, for the most part, first pitch strikes.

Tom Servo
06-28-2009, 03:13 PM
Now Owings walks Victor Martinez. 2 on, 2 out.

I don't think it's puzzling at all. I suspect the FO made the decision that if Gomes was going to be productive this year, it was not going to be by sitting the bench through the first six weeks, getting an occasional at-bat. It was going to be by sending him to Louisville, getting him 4 ABs every day, and then bringing him later. There's a real possibility that if he had gotten stuck in the 25th man role at the beginning of the season he wouldn't be producing anything now.

Tom Servo
06-28-2009, 03:42 PM
Bruce pops up to short right. 2 outs.

If you say so. That looks like rank revisionism to me.

Janish popped out to center. 7-1 Reds going to the bottom of the 5th.


With the Reds well in hand at the moment I'm going to confidently take my leave of PBP duty and do some other things. I aplogize for any inconvience this may cause.

Why would Gomes not have gotten his AB's? MacDonald got plenty.

Wow:eek:


And I am really getting on board w/ the Nix/Gomes platoon in LF. When you factor in the $$$ they cost vs replacement, I think WJ would be hard pressed to find better out there this year.

That said, SS is still an offensive black hole. But at least Dusty looks like he's figured out that CD should be starting vs RHP:thumbup:


Great outing thus far for Owings. I mean, for a #5, the guy has done better than anyone would have hoped for. I mean, he's killin' it, from a #5 starter perspective.

SirFelixCat
06-28-2009, 04:08 PM
It looks like Micah is starting to tire, though. Back-to-back walks after getting the first out, in the 6th. Pole going out to chat w/ him.

eta: 99 pitches for Owings now too.

SirFelixCat
06-28-2009, 04:08 PM
Massett starting to warm.

SirFelixCat
06-28-2009, 04:10 PM
Valbuena w/ an infield fly rule, F-4. 2 outs, 2 on.

Tony Cloninger
06-28-2009, 04:10 PM
He has a 7-1 lead and it's the 6th.... good game for him, best since AZ...but he is clearly showing he is one of those pitchers whom the 100 pitch mark was made for.

SirFelixCat
06-28-2009, 04:11 PM
Then a beautiful 6-4 GO on the first pitch to end the 6th. Obviously Dick Pole said the magic words today. Thru 6, 7-1 good guys!

SirFelixCat
06-28-2009, 04:15 PM
Gomes has impressed me by his approach during this RT...he's usually pretty hack-tastic, but the last couple of games, he's really shown patience and good pitch selection at the plate. :thumbup:

Tony Cloninger
06-28-2009, 04:16 PM
Masset? Why not someone else in a blowout....like Josh or Carlos?

Please don't start over using people

SirFelixCat

BP singles to CF, then w/ Gomes batting, he steals 2nd, then Gomes laughs at my last comment and grounds out weakly to 3B. 1 out, BP holds at 2b.

SirFelixCat
06-28-2009, 04:17 PM
Razor Ramon w/ a seeing-eye single in LF and BP scores. Woot! 8-1 and Ramon on 1B!

Don't forget David Carradine just died too. It's been a ton of them in rather short order. I can't remember this many passing this quickly and packed together. Really weird.

Why in god's name with an off day tomorrow is Owings still pitching?

I think there's probably an element of how he'll never pitch deep enough into games unless you stretch him out, and this is as safe a time as any.

DRH induces the doulbe play and Owens goes 6 allowing 5 hits and one run. Not bad for a fifth starter.

Indians were what the Reds needed--a horrible team with bad pitching. Works every time.

This will be the 6th time (in 11 games) that the Reds will win in the 5th starters spot this year.

IIRC, didn't we go something like 4-21 last year in that spot>

Yep. And another positive... every team (except our fav team) in the NL Central lost today; therefore, 1 game gained on all. Don't get any better than that.
