If there are any mods on-line, I've submitted a GT for your OK.

Also.... chat is open :beerme:

3-0 Giants in the 2nd inning.

Bottom of the 4th. Reds had their chance in the 4th with two guys on, but Fransicso hit into a 3-6 inning ending DP. Tough luck.

3-0 Giants still.

Disappointing that no mods were able to start the thread.

Why do we need mods to start the game thread anyway?

Two games in a row now without a Game Thread. :(

Huh? Mods have to start game threads here? I can get in to start one, I see no where in the rules where anyone can't start a GT (especially once the game starts), and I see that many who aren't mods have started GTs recently.

The mods have to approve it. I tried to start one, but it never got approved.

Leake's dilvery looks a little like Lincecum's.

The intent in having a mod approve it was so that we only had one GT going. We were having a problem, on game day, of having numerous posters starting GTs, and we'd end up with multiple going for the same game. Very confusing and unnecessary.

While we all realize mods have lives outside of RZ, and rightfully so, the system does need to be "tweaked" somehow IMO to insure we're able to get a daily GT started (posted).

You know...i know it's ST and all that....but this team is not even hitting in AZ....IF you cannot hit in AZ....where numbers get inflated....then this team has more problems hitting than I imagined.

Hmm... maybe a system where someone volunteers to do GTs for the next 3 games or so and then a GT will only be posted if the 1st volunteer is the one who starts it?

I think we can blame this weekend on March Madness.

The Mods have been more reliable than expected considering they all volunteer. I doubt this will be an issue once the season starts.

Left-hander Travis Wood was making his first start and fourth appearance for the Reds, who made him their minor league pitcher of the year in 2009. He gave up three runs -- two earned -- in three innings, walking two and striking out four.

"I'd like to have had a better outing," Wood said. "You are going to get hit. It is going to happen. You have to keep your head on straight. I try not to think about making the team. That adds pressure to what's already there. I just go out and pitch."

Wood is competing for the fifth starter's spot with right-hander Mike Leake, the team's first-round draft pick and a former star at nearby Arizona State. Leake gave up three earned runs on seven hits in three innings against the Giants.

Wood & Leake improved their chances of making the team today. unfortunately for them that team is the Louisville Bats.

You know...i know it's ST and all that....but this team is not even hitting in AZ....IF you cannot hit in AZ....where numbers get inflated....then this team has more problems hitting than I imagined.

since todays team was near 100% scrubs i wouldn't get too worried.

Yep. All scrubs behind a AAA pitching staff, for the most part. All the veterans must have begged off the watch March Madness. (Votto, of course, didn't care because he's Canadian.)

I will say... Not being able to steal on a Wellenmyer/Molina battery doesn't endear Aaron Miles to me...

The E at 2B, too, makes me hope Dusty picks someone else.

And for anybody not watching today, the double play that Francisco hit into took one heck of a play by the first baseman... He SMOKED the ball down the line but it was gloved...

If Miles ends up making the team he will without a doubt become RZ #1 whipping boy at the first sign of struggles.On the bright side I would much rather have that honor bestowed upon a backup/utility IF then the everyday starting CF.

Miles may have the weakest arm I've ever seen too. I'd honestly rather have Chris Burke on the team.

ST numbers, as far as I'm concerned, don't mean too much. Unless of course you're one of the players trying to make the squad. ;)

It's nothing more then a conditioning program, getting in your reps, building up your endurance, and getting ready for the regular season.

A team's performance in ST certainly is not any indication of how they will perform in the regular season.

My impressions:

Wood got the ball up too much. The changeup is impressive. I was surprised he didn't use it more, but it's probably good he's working on other stuff. I think he just needs seasoning to smooth out his command.

Leake looked better than the numbers indicate. He should have been out of an inning or two earlier than he was. The usual stuff we've heard about him -- nice array of pitches, good movement -- was on display. I think he may be a tad closer than Wood, but we'll see.

Ondrusek had the best day of anyone in a Reds uni. Got several swings and misses. I hope they're giving him a legit shot -- over Burton.

Very few good swings on the day. Francisco, Janish, Votto and Nix hit the ball hardest. Frazier had one bad AB and one good one. Cozart and Dorn, not great.

Burke made a solid play in CF, while Miles looked shaky. Will be interesting to see how the bench shakes out. I'm doubtful Miles is the best option right now.

All,

As a result of this situation, effective immediately, all ORG members will be able to start game threads. The primary reason this rule was implemented in the first place was to ensure we didn't have hours and hours of the same old lineup bashing threads 162 days a year - as was the case prior to the rule being created. However, it's dependent on a moderator being around to approve it, and I'm sorry that no one approved the game threads the past two days, so I have decided to get rid of this rule. That being said, continue to not post the initial game thread prior to the lineups being posted for each game. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks Boss.

And what you state (below) needs to be reiterated to anyone wishing to start a GT.

Simply out of courtesy, anyone who wants to start a GT should also take the time to post the lineups before members start screaming "who's starting!" :p:

Thanks, Boss! While I understand the reason for what you did originally, I think this is the better choice. And I agree w/ what GAC said...if you start the GT, only do so w/ the lineups at least.:thumbup:
