Why does Dusty hate Balentien so much? And hate us so much by not only subjecting us to McDonald, but now lead-off McDonald?

because dusty doesn't want to win. with all the outfielders we have up right now mcdonald shouldn't start period.

florida gets a leadoff single but is held scoreless in the top half of the first.

dusty will give him the leadoff spot the rest of the season.

Janish is turning into a DOUBLES MACHINE~!.

He's got his OPS+ up to 60 now.

Look out Spike Owen.

HeatherC1212
09-17-2009, 08:27 PM
He did that just to make all you guys mad, LOL :lol:

Joey walks bringing up Brandon.

that first pitch to brandon looked a foot outside and was called a strike.

Wow, I remember when Sanchez threw a no hitter for the Marlins not that long ago. It's kind of sad how far he's fallen after having shoulder issues. :eek:

Wow, Maloney has a tough assignment tonight with the high powered Marlins in town but so far he looks up to the challenge. Keep it up Matt! :)

HeatherC1212
09-17-2009, 08:53 PM
No more talking for me.....after I posted that he gave up two hits! Not cool, LOL :laugh:

HeatherC1212
09-17-2009, 09:03 PM
Ugh, that's just bad luck with the check swing bloop and out by Joey. :eek:

HeatherC1212
09-17-2009, 09:07 PM
Settle down Maloney.....

HeatherC1212

Aaron Harang is in the booth with Chris and George talking about the golf cart Aaron bought for the for the clubhouse staff. That's just awesome that he did that for them. He was kind of humble about it too as only Harang can be. :D

Uggla came within a few feet of tying this game.

Yes, there is a semipro team in my town in need of a #8 hitter.

Still 3-0 Reds after 2.5 innings.

It seems like Maloney is allowing a few baserunners every inning, but he keeps on battling. A couple of guys have taken him deep into the count and once he throws ball three he keeps pounding the strike zone making them put it in play or sit down. He's changing speeds effectively, going anywhere from 66 to 86 and keeping most of the hitters off balance. Unfortunately he's at 60 pitches after 3 innings...at that rate he'll be lucky to get out of the 5th inning.

A very Bobby Livingston-esque start.

Sanchez was at 55 pitches at the end of the last inning so he won't last long either. This will probably be a bullpen game like last night. Hopefully the end result is the same too (i.e. a Reds win). :D

Edited to Add: Sanchez is at 75 pitches through three innings. With him recovering from shoulder issues, he will more than likely be gone in another inning or two.

These dudes work sllloooooowwww!

I can't believe Angels in the Outfield isn't George Grande's favorite movie.

HeatherC1212
09-17-2009, 09:28 PM
This is the same thing that happened last night too. The first four and a half innings took like TWO HOURS to get through but the last few innings went by much faster. I'm glad I'm watching this one from the comfort of my home instead of freezing in my seat because I forgot my jacket (which I did last night, LOL). :eek:

HeatherC1212
09-17-2009, 09:35 PM
Aaron Harang is such a nice guy. I've enjoyed his booth visit but I think this is the most I've ever heard him talk, LOL ;)

WebScorpion
09-17-2009, 09:38 PM
another 19 pitch inning for Maloney...he's at 79 now.

After 3 and a half innings still Reds 3 - Fish 0

HeatherC1212
09-17-2009, 09:42 PM
This umpire apparently isn't happy with the pace of the game and is making his calls to make it go faster, LOL :laugh:

3-1 now but I'm right there with you. ;)

HeatherC1212
09-17-2009, 09:58 PM
And we've now let Sanchez get confident and we'll probably lose this game unless we can make one run stand up again for four more innings. :eek:

HeatherC1212
09-17-2009, 10:00 PM
Good grief...how did that guy catch that ball in right field?! :eek:

09-17-2009, 10:03 PM
Ramon Ramirez pitching now for the Reds.

WebScorpion
09-17-2009, 10:03 PM
Sanchez at 98 pitches, Maloney at 96.

Maloney done...Ramirez in for the 6th.

HeatherC1212
09-17-2009, 10:05 PM
And Ramon makes the game go a little faster by retiring the side in order. :D

HeatherC1212

Burke Badenhop in for the Marlins.

I'm wondering the same thing. I watch a lot of baseball and I only started hearing about him a few weeks ago. Where did he come from?! :eek:

YESSIREE!! :D

_Sir_Charles_
09-17-2009, 10:22 PM
I know lots of people here would like to see Brandon moved to short...but I think you don't mess with a good thing. He's fantastic at second. Great snag and quick throw to double off Coghlan to end the inning.

_Sir_Charles_
09-17-2009, 10:24 PM
Sutton ph'ing for Rhodes....shows his warning track power...just a loud out though.

_Sir_Charles_
09-17-2009, 10:26 PM
I knew it when I saw the lineup earlier today that McDonald would have a solid game. Just to drive RZ'ers nuts. :O)

2 for 3 now with a dinger, a single, a walk, a stolen base and a nice sliding snag in center.

nate

Joey sure hasn't seen many strikes tonight as he walks for the second time, LOL :laugh:

_Sir_Charles_
09-17-2009, 10:34 PM
Joey starting to look Vottoesque again. Nice patience at the dish to draw the free pass. Another pitching change. Ah heck, just swap out pitchers after EVERY throw. :O)

I agree. He looked great at the game last night with two walks and two hits (one of which was an infield hit that he got by hauling tush to first). I thought the Astros were afraid of him because they didn't throw him many strikes the whole night, LOL :laugh:

_Sir_Charles_
09-17-2009, 10:37 PM
Just looked up Coghlan...he's hitting .352 in about 250 ab's since the ASB (prior to tonights 4 for 4). Wow. Only Hanley Ramirez, Nyjer Morgan & Matt Holliday are hitting better since the ASB (those with a starters amount of AB's). Impressive.

Yep. Although I can't really comment about how his tush looked as he hauled it to first. I'll leave that to the experts. ;)

That's probably a good thing. ;) And this expert has photographic proof of that from last night's game, LOL :beerme: :p:

Masset looked filthy last night and he's doing it again tonight. :thumbup:

nate
09-17-2009, 10:48 PM
That was a nasty pitch to strike out Uggla.

And Ross.

HeatherC1212
09-17-2009, 10:48 PM
FILTH. :eek: Masset is awesome. I love him pitching the eighth inning! :D

_Sir_Charles_
09-17-2009, 10:48 PM
Masset is nearly unhittable when he throws stuff that filthy. Goodness! Really impressive inning there I think.

Hey Heather, did you get some good pic's of Hal's ceremony before the game last night? And if so, could you post them anywhere? I missed the beginning of last nights game. Only caught the 3rd inning on or so.


~edit~ Nevermind. I just now saw your post in the Hal thread on the ORG. I'll keep my eyes open for them. And thanks ahead of time.

I do have some pictures and I hope to get some posted this weekend. I haven't had enough time to go through them all yet and I won't be home tomorrow night to do it either. My goal is to get some posted here on Saturday afternoon. :)

Yeah, I just saw your post in the Hal thread. No problem. I sure appreciate it. I was pretty ticked off when I missed the pre-game. Just be sure to post the "tush-less" versions. :O)

Cordero in. How many nights straight is this? 4 or 5?

Four nights straight.

HeatherC1212
09-17-2009, 11:01 PM
He hasn't used many pitches for any of the previous saves though so I think it's all right, especially since he all ready has two outs. :D

And what's wrong with my tush pictures?! I guess only I appreciate the really good things about baseball. ;)

_Sir_Charles_
09-17-2009, 11:02 PM
Doesn't look like he's tired at all. Nice pitch there to K Baker

The crowd is certainly making itself heard even though it's small tonight. :)

REDS WIN!!! :jump: (Way to make me look like a fool and making those three runs stand up for almost the WHOLE game, LOL :laugh: )

09-17-2009, 11:03 PM

That's as good as I've ever seen Cordero. The bullpen has a 12-inning shutout going.

Is there anyway we can just ignore that Rockies series? Take that eyesore out and the Reds would have won 17 out of 21 games. Of course it's actually 17-8 not 17-4, but can't we just blame it on the altitude and just not count that 4 game sweep? :O)

Seriously though, this team is playing VERY well lately. Fun to watch. Let's keep it rollin' boys!

Cordero us throwing all his pitches for strikes and he's got good movement on his FB. It's just nicking the black on the plate
