Haven't been to a game thread all season.

I'll be here tonight rooting for my REDS and their 2010 ACE, Homer Bailey.

The buck stops here with our ACE.

Go REDS!

Strike out, Stolen Base.

Furcal on 2nd, one out.

Those batting averages by the Dodgers are better than the '27 Yankees.

Kingspoint
04-20-2010, 07:16 PM
Someone help me.

Gameday says that the 2nd pitch to Ethier was right down the middle, but was called a ball.

Rough start.

I'm really proud of our guys working Billingsley for 13 pitches. He'll be worn out in the 8th inning.

Good job getting the pitcher to strike out. Always a tough out.

Everyone (except Stubbs, who struck out) swung away at the first strike they saw.

The "aggressiveness" paid off big-time this time.

Vottomatic
04-20-2010, 07:58 PM
Stubbs will get sent down soon if he doesn't improve. He looks bat at the plate.

"Hey guys i told you if you swing you get hits"
I hear it in the dugout right now.

Now let's see if Homer can get his e.r.a. under 8.00 this inning.

Kingspoint
04-20-2010, 08:11 PM
I'd like to (and everyone else, I'm sure, too, in REDSDOM) would like to see Homer finish 7 IP without getting to 110 pitches.

Ramon with a shot to center.. 7-3 after 3.

Kingspoint
04-20-2010, 08:22 PM
Nice recovery by Bailey.

Too many pitches this inning, though. (16 pitches)

Would like to see him get out of next inning with less than 10 pitches. Trust his fielders.

Kingspoint
04-20-2010, 08:25 PM
Already into the Dodgers bullpen in the 4th inning of the 1st game of a 3-game series. This could bode well for us in the 3rd game.

redsfan_12

Only 8 pitches in the 5th by Bailey.

ACE!!!

Ortiz follows up with an 8-pitch inning himself.

Wow....16 pitches total in the 5th inning. Hope nobody got up to go to the bathroom.

Well, Homer ran out of gas.

Only 5-1/3 innings. That sucks.

That was a good trade of Hamilton for DRH and Volquez. We have plenty of Centerfielders/Outfielders, but never enough pitching.

The REDS will score in the bottom of the 7th and put this game away.

Sadly, we had to use 5 pitchers to do it.

Not likely. I think for the rest of time we should never ever try to get excited about a team for any reason, because in the end we will never have any fortune with anything.

Any prospects we have, no matter if they are even #1 and 2 prospects in baseball, are doomed to be below average failures.

Any promising role players we have will be nothing but scrap heap junk.

Any veterans we have won't play anywhere close to how they have at other places.

And in the rare instance that we have a player that has had a couple good years here like Harang, rest assured there is no possible way that player can manage to pull off more than more two good years as a Red.

I guess that's basically it. There's no hope for this franchise whatsoever.

George Foster
04-20-2010, 09:56 PM
It's time to shake this team up. I mean it's time to either fire someone, DFA someone, or have a 2 hour practice after a game. Back in the day, if we blew a 6 run lead, we would be running sprints after the game.

Griffey012
04-20-2010, 09:56 PM
The clock officially starts for Dusty..tic tic...wow. What was wrong with Rhodes?

C'mon that's in no way Dusty. But bringing Lincoln in here is.

Griffey012
04-20-2010, 09:58 PM
It could be worse..I remember a few years back when we blew a 6,7 run lead to the Cards in the 9th lol

But I can guarantee my hopes weren't as high then. And we probably didn't have a very good bullpen the year before.

Janish hits single to Manny, Bruce scores. Janish gets caught in rundown between 1st and 2nd. Ramon heads home and Loney goes to throw home but drops the ball. 2 runs score, Janish safe at 2nd.

Agreed. But your statement makes sense, so why would Dusty make THAT change? C'mon... I think Cairo getting the starting CF job is a bit more likely than Janish AND Dickerson starting tomorrow...
