Strikes Out Looking

Willy T doubles.

Are you doing the pbp and drinking at the same time?

Kc61
08-10-2009, 09:16 PM
Gonzo sacrifices. Willy T on third.

Kc61

It was an actual double. Liner into the gap. Easily made it to second.

Apparently.

Kc61
08-10-2009, 09:20 PM
Phillips with a sac fly.

A run.

Kc61
08-10-2009, 09:22 PM
Votto called out on strikes.

No argument.

Reds one zip after half inning.

Kc61
08-10-2009, 09:28 PM
Schumaker doubles and moves to third on fly out to center. Pujols is up now with a man on third one out.

08-10-2009, 09:28 PM
Johnny, you may have never thrown one before, but throw some splitters right here :D

Kc61
08-10-2009, 09:29 PM
Pujols walks on four pitches. Holliday up with first and third. Holliday hitting .466 as a Card.

Kc61
08-10-2009, 09:31 PM
Pujols steals second.

Tom Servo
08-10-2009, 09:32 PM
As much as we complain about George, Welsh, Cowboy, and Thom (Well, mostly just George), the actual Cardinals announcers are 100x more annoying. And I get them everytime the Reds and Cardinals play each other. Blech.

Kc61
08-10-2009, 09:33 PM
Holliday hits a sac fly to Gomes. Tie game.

Cueto almost never has a clean first inning.

johnny no arm gomes

He showed a pretty decent arm, just was in no way in a good position to throw home. Wasn't coming in, was right under it. Stood flat footed and not a good crow-hop

RedFanAlways1966
08-10-2009, 09:34 PM
Pujols steals second.

I didn't "see" it, but Marty thought Albert was out at 2nd. For those who saw it, was he out? If so, there would be no sac fly and a 1-0 game going to inning 2.

11larkin11
08-10-2009, 09:35 PM
1 run for Cueto in the first?

Good inning.

Stormy
08-10-2009, 09:36 PM
I realize that when you have your most inept hitters setting the table, that a sacrifice bunt is probably the best outcome you can hope for in that situation, but I don't like playing for a single run in the first inning. You're playing one of the most potent offenses in the NL since Holliday was added, why concede outs?

1-1 after the 1st inning, following Ankiel's strikeout.

Kc61
08-10-2009, 09:36 PM
Ankiel the outfielder strikes out swinging. Tied at one each after one.

If someone else wants to do PBP feel free, I'll be back later.

Gotta be aggressive dude. Can't clog those bases.

In real-time I thought he was out, but the replay showed he did beat it.

Can't stop Wlad.

RedFanAlways1966
08-10-2009, 09:41 PM
Thanks Tom Servo and Kc61. I wondered why no one was complaining on here. Obviously a good call by the umpire.

CrackerJack
08-10-2009, 09:46 PM
Rosales aka "Spaz" looked ridiculous there.

KoryMac5
08-10-2009, 09:46 PM
Gomes K's, Rosales K's, and Hanigan grounds out leaving Wlad at 1st.

KoryMac5
08-10-2009, 09:54 PM
Cueto gets the first two Cards on a ground out and a fly ball to Gomes. Ryan K's for the final out. 1-1

Tom Servo
08-10-2009, 09:58 PM
Is Cueto hurt?

KoryMac5
08-10-2009, 09:59 PM
Cueto grabbing his leg after his AB, not a good sign.

KoryMac5
08-10-2009, 10:00 PM
Kip Wells warming in the pen, Card announcers speculating he is coming in.

KoryMac5
08-10-2009, 10:01 PM
Cueto is done for the night as he is headed back to the locker room with a trainer.

KoryMac5
08-10-2009, 10:02 PM
Gonzo with a single, has hit better of late.

Tom Servo
08-10-2009, 10:02 PM
The Kip Wells era is upon us.

KoryMac5
08-10-2009, 10:03 PM
Phillips grounds out to short, 3 outs.

11larkin11
08-10-2009, 10:03 PM
Cueto wanted to come back out, he was pissed Dick "The" Pole wouldn't let him

KoryMac5

The Kip Wells era is upon us.

First there was Joe Mays, than came Josh Fogg, now we have Kip Wells :eek:

KoryMac5
08-10-2009, 10:05 PM

I think with Volquez going down the Reds will be extra cautious with their young guns.

Wells gets Lohse, Shumaker K's, 2 outs.

KoryMac5

1, 2, 3 inning for Kip Wells.

I did see he was in the 92-93 area, so he isn't Joe Mays

Wlad on first with two outs as Gomes pops up.

KoryMac5
08-10-2009, 10:19 PM
Rosales ends the inning with a ground out. Bottom half of the Reds order is brutal.

KoryMac5
08-10-2009, 10:22 PM
Wells vs. Pujols: advantage Wells as Pujols K's.

11larkin11
08-10-2009, 10:23 PM
Rosales really does have one of the strongest arms I've seen from an IF and its money every time.

KoryMac5
08-10-2009, 10:23 PM
Holliday is retired by Rosales.

KoryMac5
08-10-2009, 10:24 PM
Ankiel grounds out to Votto. 1, 2, 3 inning for Wells.

RedFanAlways1966
08-10-2009, 10:26 PM
Wells, I am enjoying it while I can. Maybe a definite change of pace (from Cueto) is helping at this point. 2nd time through the lineup... we'll see.

redsmetz
08-10-2009, 10:28 PM
I turned the game off to head up to my daughters' room to move one daughter's stuff to the attic (pending her move to DC) to make room for her sister's stuff when she moves back from Atlanta before moving to Chicago at the end of the month.

I hopped in the shower since I'd cut the grass, cleaned both BR's and move the aforementioned boxes. Came back down and heard Jeff say "Wells" and I had to run through the game thread to see what happened to Cueto. Lets hope he keeps up this 1 2 3 stuff the rest of the way.

KoryMac5
08-10-2009, 10:28 PM
Hanigan can't buy a hit as he lines to center.

KoryMac5
08-10-2009, 10:29 PM
Wells grounds out to short, 2 down.

KoryMac5
08-10-2009, 10:30 PM
3 down Willy T skies to center.

Wells keep em' on the ground as he gets another groundball out, 1 out.

KoryMac5
08-10-2009, 10:38 PM
Molina is on with a single to right. Nice AB from Molina.

KoryMac5
08-10-2009, 10:39 PM
Wells starting to nibble a bit more this inning.

KoryMac5
08-10-2009, 10:42 PM
Men on 1st and 2nd for Lohse, as Ryan walks. Lohse at bat.

RedFanAlways1966
08-10-2009, 10:43 PM
Wells might be gassed. Been awhile since he has pitched.

KoryMac5
08-10-2009, 10:46 PM
Lohse lays down a nice bunt to move the runners along. Wells having some issues finding the zone.

KoryMac5
08-10-2009, 10:48 PM
Wells wild pitch bounces back to Hanigan runners have to scramble back. Wells has lost the zone here.

RedFanAlways1966
08-10-2009, 10:48 PM
Luck... wild pitch bounces right back to Hanigan after hitting the backstop. Wells looks done. Time to get him out of there, but no one in the bullpen.

KoryMac5
08-10-2009, 10:49 PM
Wells walks the batter bases loaded, trainwreck waiting to happen.

RedFanAlways1966
08-10-2009, 10:50 PM
Geez. Cannot throw a strike.

11larkin11
08-10-2009, 10:51 PM
Oh god. Pujols is gonna come up with the bases loaded. Crap. No. Please.

KoryMac5
08-10-2009, 10:51 PM
Wells is looking at 3-0 here finally throws a strike.

Tom Servo
08-10-2009, 10:51 PM
Well done, Kip.

11larkin11
08-10-2009, 10:51 PM
Keep Wells in. Walk him. And Holliday. Get to Ankiel.

KoryMac5
08-10-2009, 10:52 PM
Wells walks in a run and Albert is coming up.

CTA513
08-10-2009, 10:52 PM
Wells was cut by the Nationals for a reason.

RedFanAlways1966
08-10-2009, 10:52 PM
Has not thrown in 11 days? Should the bullpen had been better prepared for this? Not the thinking on the REDS bench. Cost at least one run

KoryMac5
08-10-2009, 10:53 PM
3 walks for Wells in the inning, Burton becomes the lamb here.

RedsManRick

KoryMac5
08-10-2009, 10:56 PM
Burton might need his inhaler after this AB.

KoryMac5
08-10-2009, 10:57 PM
Burton gets Pujols to fly out and the Cards leave 3 stranded. 2-1 Cards.

11larkin11
08-10-2009, 10:57 PM

Everytime I see Albert swing I think it is out.

CTA513
08-10-2009, 10:59 PM
Burton and Roenicke are one of the few pitchers to get Pujols out this season with the bases loaded.

KoryMac5
08-10-2009, 11:00 PM
Gonzo sends one to the track, 1 out.

RedFanAlways1966
08-10-2009, 11:01 PM
What were Dusty and Dick Pole thinking? Kip Wells looked good for a couple of innings, but had not thrown for a week and a half. He was not going to last long. Seems a bit shortsighted to not have someone prepared to take over if needed (and it was needed) a bit sooner. Wells lost it (probably due to lack of playing). Help was brought in two batters too late. Bad decision making.

KoryMac5
08-10-2009, 11:01 PM

I agree but this seems the norm for Wells career. Has it for an inning or two than loses it. I think the reaction by Dusty and Pole was slow I would have had a quicker hook.

Not that I wish harm on any player, but the team improves if Willy gets injured. We can't even get lucky with our injuries.

What kind of move was that Willy T, Greene doubles off the wall 3-1 Cards.

CTA513
08-10-2009, 11:19 PM
Someone should make a Taveras highlight film that includes plays like that double by Greene.

KoryMac5

I think I could pre-post the Reds offensive PBP. Ground out to third, grounder to short, flyball to center just to mix it up.

Reds have 4 hits tonight, do we have a pool going, on when they will get no hit.

Nothing very sophisticated about Dave Duncan's much admired magic. Down, down, down, sink, sink, sink. Don't let the homerun beat you. Should certainly be replicable in Cinti.
