I submit Dusty's latest stroke of genius:

Drew Stubbs cf
Orlando Cabrera ss
Brandon Phillips 2b
Jonny Gomes lf
Miguel Cairo 1b
Jay Bruce rf
Ryan Hanigan c
Paul Janish 3b
Mike Leake p

Votto's back is hurting and is ill, and Rolen is also ill.

Why cant Janish play short and Cabrera 3rd?

Predictions on dukes K numbers tonight? He had 3 in 12 innings coming in to tonight. I'll say he gets 8.

2-0 bucs..Bruce's defense only positive so far

Janish walks..but Leake is up

04-16-2010, 08:38 PM
didnt know Leake had the green light on a 2-0 pitch. Not to mention 6 straight balls by Duke :eek:

Dribble up the middle for basehit. 3-0. Im tired of watching this $(*t

I think we all should have seen this coming, honestly.

Im outta here. Cabrera falls down and Cairo kicks the damn ball. WTH kind of lineup is this Dusty? Jesus... I hope we come back and win so I can eat my crow

Defense doing leake no favors. Cabrera has 0 range.

Glad I'm only getting this one on gamecast...cable is out here. Seems like the worst we've played all year.

Alright fellas, im going to play ball. Normally id skip it but..im so frustrated at this mess right now...Maybe we will come back and win.. :beerme:

Really Chris welsh? Cairo brings some pop off the bench? Might want to check the stats on that one.

Gotta say I like watching leake pitch. Yea he'll have his rookie struggles but I like this kid.

We seemingly are down 4-0 every game by the third inning..our offense is inept...we cant ever get a call from an ump..our starting pitching is horrific..we strikeout 10 times a game and what we do hit is lazy ground balls or flyballs that the defender doesnt even have to move...votto 2 rbi's and bruce no rbi's..yet we are 5-5??? Did I leave anything out???

BUTLER REDSFAN
04-16-2010, 09:33 PM
Wow..thanks Cabrera..was he even running?

this might be our last day at .500 if we keep up this crap

Same here. I thought it was supposed to be fun to watch baseball. Not if your a reds fan apparently.

Phillips just jogged to first base too. if he would have ran atleast he might have had a chance of beating it. I think if these lazy asses don't want to play then put someone in there who does. If I recall Phillips got suspended for that last year!

Bruce has gotten so bad he is hard to watch.

remember the Randall Simon sausage incident?? that was priceless

BUTLER REDSFAN
04-16-2010, 09:49 PM
well..another exciting ground out...I grew up watching this team and probably always will but this offense is Leslie Nielsen-Naked Gun kinda funny....I'm hoping in the next inning we can get a walk-steal second--go to third on a balk and score on a groundout...only way we will score tonight

arkimadee
04-16-2010, 09:49 PM
Thank God for the Pirates crappy baserunning.. It would be 7-0 right now. But I got a feeling next inning we will get a run!

Yea, I thought it was great. Didn't he get fined for it though?

Is it just me or does every team we play have one Japanese guy that we can never get out??

I think Bruce should lose his starting job for a few weeks, time to send a message.

0 effort from Reds today. They are playing tired, which they are. They haven't had a day off in a while with several flights. Could be the real reason Votto and Rolen sat out today.

the only reason he didn't get sent down last year is because he got hurt. he is killing this team. we need a bat in right field

BUTLER REDSFAN
04-16-2010, 09:58 PM
Wow..was that even a 5 pitch inning??? Reds want to hurry up and get in the bed I guess.

They need one of those Major League 2 speeches by Rube Baker!! that would pep them up!

Great job by leake! Did what none of our more experienced pitchers could do. Too bad we have a little league offense.

They are making Zach Duke look like Greg Maddux in his Braves prime

One thing about Leake is that (so far) (fingers crossed) he just does not get hit hard very often. Even the hits he gives up are usually not hit hard. Probably because he has good movement and keeps the ball down.

arkimadee
04-16-2010, 10:04 PM
Come on!! Baserunners!!!

arkimadee
04-16-2010, 10:07 PM
holy crap, they are taking him out after 87 pitches!!! maybe this is the break we need. Our strength this year is hitting teams relief pitching

Nice job by stubbs! Sets it up perfectly for another cabrera double play. God I hope I'm wrong.

04-16-2010, 10:10 PM

04-16-2010, 10:10 PM
Stubbs is smart and fast! And of course would have been another DP ball. Horrible game by cabrera tonight.

04-16-2010, 10:11 PM
can we get a GD RUN?? it would be nice to have Votto in the lineup right about now

come on Gomes. 3 run homer here

I know. It's amazing what happens when you don't swing at the first pitch every time.

hahaha--priceless--our only run tonight is on a bases loaded walk---but I'll take it.

04-16-2010, 10:24 PM
Lol, any strike likely gets Bruce out and the guy walks him on 4 pitches. Thanks.

even more priceless--2 runs on bases loaded walks

And then janish swings at the first 2 pitches and pops out. Terrible at bat.

Nice for the Reds. They need to see that runs can be scored without swinging the bat.

Have to take that back. The Reds fought back in scrappy fashion.

I think we gained some confidence once Duke left the game. We did have 0 effort early on though. Players not running out balls and just looking dead tired.

BUTLER REDSFAN
04-16-2010, 11:03 PM
I know the size of the crowd is not important but there is something about losing these games on the road in front of 1500 people that drives me nuts...so much for being .500

04-16-2010, 11:07 PM
atleast we didn't lose on some fluke plays. the pirates played the ninth the way it should be played. hopefully we will get them tomorrow

I agree.

I keep hoping we suck for awhile and mgmt fires him, only to have the offense and pitching come alive once he's gone.
