etc., etc.


Basing a player's fielding prowess based on one play is just unfathomable.

Even Dustly won't do that!!Right. Otherwise, maybe we should pull Rolen for a late inning replacement too.

1. Homer battled without his best stuff. The Homer we all knew prior to 2009 would have given up 8 runs.
2. The Reds hit some balls hard early and the Cubs made some very nice defensive plays. The team did not give up.
3. Stubbs. What can one say except Doug was right & the haters were wrong. And not just any home run. A grand slam in the 8th to take the lead!
4. Cordero tends to labor when used three days in a row. The 'gold glove' combo of Rolen/Janish could very easily have cost us the game. Instead Cordero gets the last out. If I were him I would have run the ball to 1rst base myself!

Tonight's game was a game previous Reds teams would not have won. The fact that they battled & battled and came out with a victory is a sign of a Reds team that is different from the recent ones we've seen.

Yes it was, they got the win.

Cordero was the best closer in the NL last year.

I'd rephrase to "luckiest", not best. Many of his saves looked just like tonight.

I really hope the offense can learn from this game. The minute they become patient, things started going their way.

Just think, this time last year it would've been Willy Taveras coming up in the leadoff spot with the bases loaded.

Think he goes yard for the win?

Agreement on all points. This is the new Homer. Though he didn't have his best stuff nor much control, he made what he had work. I was afraid that he would revert back to his pre-late 2009 self, but that doesn't appear to be the case.

You can call it luck or skill, but their shortstop pulled a bunch of plays out of his rectum tonight. Time after time. That's not going to happen every game.

I've said it since last fall, Drew Stubbs should be the everyday center fielder until he blows up. His speed is amazing and he can hit the ball with power. Yes, he strikes out a little too much, but he is the best option.

Early in Codero's outing, he found the strike zone, then seemed to fade quickly--a classic case of three straight appearances. Yes, he's lucky to get out of this one, but he was lights out in his other appearances, so he needs to rest tomorrow.

And yes, we would have lost all our games so far with the team they put on the field at this time in 2009. Taveras leading off and Gonzo or whoever second--the team would have been 0-4 and the wailing and gnashing of teeth would be plentiful. Instead, we've seen two players, Stubbs and Gomes, lead us to two straight victories. We've seen excellent starting pitching. We've seen a lot better team. Hope is important and there is pleny of hope in this household tonight.

Nah, he grounds into a double play and Orlando strikes out. :cool:

I think the scouting report they used on Silva was from 06-07....when he did not walk 10 batters all season.

I think that may be the last time we see Janish for OC late in games.

I hope not, that's probably in LF and a run scores if OC is in the game.



I also agree that Homer did a nice job battling. I'm encouraged that he still had 5 ks without his best stuff.

The offense is about to break out. Votto is the only one that has a MUCH higher than usual, so he will regress (along with the catchers), but aside from Votto, the catchers, and Stubbs, NO ONE is hitting, and I'm talking sub-.200 averages. Think about that, and we're 2-2 through 4 games. They're bout to go on a hot streak, hopefully the pitching keeps up. I don't see Big Z getting shelled back to back, but we still may pull out the win and start the firepower Sunday.

Silly Wabbit, Kicks are for Trids! :p:

Is it something that can be LEARNED? You'd think so. But take a look at last night's starting lineup. How many players have a history of being patient at the plate? Rolen? Votto? What cha' got after that? I'll exempt Stubbs because we don't know at this stage for sure. CDick might be another.

But after that you got a bunch of hackers in guys like Phillips, Cabrera, Hernandez, and Johnny "swing till it hurts" Gomes.

I want to add Bruce to that list, but he has more pressing problems RIGHT NOW. ;)

Watching that game last night, and vs Silva, made me simply furious. The guy had only thrown something like 48 pitches I think after 4 innings. Ridiculous.

That's exactly what I thought when watching the game, no way does OC even get to that ball. I'm not sure Janish even had a play at 2nd base any way, did he get an error on that play?

Originally given an error, changed to a hit by the official scorer after the game.

Big win. :thumbup:

Five runs with just five hits, that hardly ever happens with the Reds.

Call it what you want, but Cordero had a .624 OPS Against last year which is outstanding.


Basically every batter he faced last year became an Adam Rosales.
