Good 1st inning for Homer. A strikeout and a pair of groundouts.

Stubbs continues to get hits. Like to see what he can do on the bases vs. a lefty.

Votto walks, then moves to second on a balk.

KoryMac5

Votto walks moves to 2nd on a balk. Haven't seen one called for awhile by the umpires.

Phillips picks up the RBI with a single than does what Phillips is prone to do, thrown out on the bases. 1-0 Reds.

A gopher ball served up by Bailey. Garrett Jones homers to right.

KoryMac5
09-02-2009, 01:56 PM
I think Jones was looking fastball there. 1-1 game.

KoryMac5

HR 10,000 for the Pirates franchise. Somewhere balloons and confetti are falling.

Miller K's 1-1

KoryMac5
09-02-2009, 02:17 PM
Bailey gets a fly out, gives up a single to Duke, K's McCutchen, and gets a fly out to end the inning.

Nice pitch to McCutchen 97 mph fastball with good movement.

KoryMac5

HR 10,000 for the Pirates franchise. Somewhere balloons and confetti are falling.

Three players (Stargell, Kiner and Clemente) account for 10% of their franchise HR total. Does that seem amazing to anyone else or is it just me?

KoryMac5
09-02-2009, 02:35 PM
Bailey with a smooth start to the inning getting the first two outs. Walks Milledge, Doumit hits one to the RF wall and Lastings is nailed at the plate by 10 ft. Milledge tried to knock the ball out but Miller had none of that.

KoryMac5
09-02-2009, 02:36 PM

I spent the weekend in a car with a Pittsburgh fan, and I heard too things repeatedly.

1. The Steelers have won 1 out of every 7 Super Bowls.
2. Andrew McCutchen is the greatest CF ever to play the game.

Great to see Drew out play young Andrew this week.

OK...maybe he's just on a hot streak. :D

KoryMac5

Off to the dentist...someone else can take over if they like.

Closing note I saw Stubbs play a few times in the minors and this guy in the majors is not the Drew I saw. I guess we will see if it can hold up over the course of a long road trip.

Good four game sweep for the Reds. With a lengthy road trip coming up I hope the Reds can continue there winning ways. I would imagine over the next few games we will begin to see if Drew Stubbs is the real deal. It's easy to put up numbers at GABP, can he do it on the road.

I have enjoyed this stretch like no other the past few years. It is very gratifying to see these guys put it together. Is this squad the answer for our future? Of course not. But there are some nice pieces to the puzzle in place if the FO will do some heavy duty lifting this winter.

I believe there were a lot of us that thought the only interesting thing about the rest of the season was how the AAA guys respond to being in the majors. And here we are watching them WIN. I really didn't think this team would be 13 games under .500 again this year.

Willy Taveras begs to differ.;)The Reds are 2nd to last in RS, so I'd say the whole team begs to differ. Seriously, the HRs have not been cheapy GAB fence scrapers or plunking them into the RF bullpen like Manny and Furcal did Saturday.

Most enjoyable game thread in ages. Even old sarcastic me didn't get negative or sarcastic. In fact, these last 11 games have been wonderful. Getting rid of the dead weight really helped t his club. No more Hairstons and no more Taverases (at least for now) and the kids have made a difference.

While obviously it's great to see a 4 game sweep, lets keep this in perspective....IT'S THE MORE MISERABLE THEN US PIRATES! :D

And while I've seen some positives over these last few weeks..... solid performances by Bailey, guys like Janish and Stubbs, and overall better play by this team, here is what concerns me.....

This FO, and manager, will use these "positive" signs as an excuse to say we're heading in the right direction for next season, no big shake-ups needed, or as Dusty put it... "We're close".

Since the beginning of August, this team is 6-11 vs teams with above .500 records.

And going into this Pirate series we were 5-5 against sub .500 teams. So this sweep takes that to a 9-5 record.

But over the next 17 days, 14 of our 17 games are against teams with above .500 records. Lets see how they fare.

But this current winning kinds worries me to a degree. ;)

Same here. And what's to stop the FO from bringing us Pattersron, Taveras, and Hairston type players again? I have a feeling Teh Dusty will still be pressuring for those type of players. Speed, Dude.

We watched them take a career year that a player could never ever hope to duplicate and parlay it into a 2 year deal. Walt's too smart for that. That had to be Dusty all the way.

I think the FO signaled a change in culture with the trade of EE for Scott Rolen. I think some of the things that have worried us in the past will no longer turn out to be problems.

Every season has ebbs and flows.

The 2009 season is winding down and I'm already dreading the cold gray days of winter without baseball.
