Let's finish out a 5-1 roadtrip:

Stubbs 8
Phillips 4
Votto 3
Rolen 5
Bruce 9
Cabrera 6
Nix 7
Hanigan 2
Harang RHP

Guess Dusty has forgot about Janish

Cabrera has done very solid keep ridin' the wave.

Griffey012
05-02-2010, 02:30 PM
For the Cards:

Schumaker 4
Ludwick 9
Pujols 3
Rasmus 8
Freese 5
Molina 2
Stavinoha 7
Carpenter 1
Ryan 6


I am completely fine without seeing Holiday in the lineup today, even with his poor track record against Harang.

Griffey012
05-02-2010, 02:34 PM
I am glad Dusty isn't playing his typical Sunday lineup from last season that would be something like

Stubbs
Janish
Votto
Phillips
Nix
Heisey
Cairo
Hanigan
Harang

Those drive me crazy when it seems like we are trying to lose the game.

Umpire changed his strike zone between teams. Would have been a K looking if called strikes. Go look it up on Gameday! Terrible.

GIDP
05-02-2010, 03:49 PM
I see that the strike zone is 2 inches wider for Carpenter than it is for Harang today.

Stubbs Ks on 2 pitches below the knees. Freese gets 3 pitches on the black called as balls. Nice

BUTLER REDSFAN
05-02-2010, 03:51 PM
harang getting ripped on calls left and right..this game should be over in under 2 hours

PLEASE get these next 2 guys out. PLEASE.

It would be nice if Dusty got off his a$$ and went out there and got tossed

BUTLER REDSFAN

it seems as though every game harang is fine until the third or 4th inning then the roof caves in on him....that being said this umps calls are terrible..

Awesome luck there? Karma is coming for the Cards. I can sense it!

cbowen2112
05-02-2010, 04:00 PM
These are the time I wish a manager can appeal a strike or ball call in baseball. We already had a slim chance of getting runs in, when you give the other team more runs it is ridiculous!

BUTLER REDSFAN
05-02-2010, 04:01 PM
the pitches are in the exact same place as Carpenters and the ump calls em balls but for carpenter they are strike..dusty needs to go out and at least bring this up...

mattfeet
05-02-2010, 04:01 PM
Nice poke Stubbs. He needs to get on 3rd base quick. We HAVE to capitalize on this chance.

-Matt

GIDP
05-02-2010, 04:01 PM
Stubbs finally gets one of those blast to not go straight to the center fielder.

mattfeet
05-02-2010, 04:02 PM
Great sacrifice. Get the run in Votto!!!!!

Id rather have Phillips swinging there especially considering Stubbs speed.

ball 4...please no DP Scotty!!

redsfan_12
05-02-2010, 04:03 PM

-Matt

most certainly..especially with a runner on 3rd..I think Carpenter knew that.

mattfeet
05-02-2010, 04:03 PM
Now Votto needs to get to 2nd to rid the chance of a DP. Small ball guys, let's get this run in!

-Matt

05-02-2010, 04:07 PM
Is Stubbs capable of stealing home you think?

I don't think even caps lock can tell you how upset that makes me. Phillips bunting really makes no sense.

GIDP
05-02-2010, 04:09 PM
I have no idea why Phillips was bunting. What a completely useless AB. Dusty or Phillips really screwed the pooch on that one.

BUTLER REDSFAN
05-02-2010, 04:10 PM
im so sick of losing to this team...i honestly dont think they are better than us...they have pujols and 2 pitchers and thats about it...they get whatever they need i.e an ump who calls everything for carpenter...they need a dp they get it blah blah blah

They are WAY better than us. Pujols is the best player in the history of this game. Why we don't walk him everytime I have no clue. Carpenter is just amazing. I cannot wait until his contract ends and he goes somewhere else. They have a better bullpen than us. The Cards starting pitching has an ERA that is almost half of ours. We are lucky to have beaten them in the Gomes game and on Friday. There hitters don't swing at first pitches and seem to work every count. They have fans who sell out the ballpark on a weekend as opposed to drawing 17,000. I ENVY the Cards. I want our organization to be like them. We go into a game with them I feel like we got lucky if we won.

arkimadee
05-02-2010, 04:26 PM
This game should be atleast 2-2. How come when Carpenter is on the mound we can't seem to get 1 frikin hit with runners in scoring position. Just give me a frikin sac fly!!!!!! ANYTHING

BUTLER REDSFAN
05-02-2010, 04:27 PM
They go into every game with Carpenter with a mindset that they are going to lose. The guy is a great pitcher but he is human..looks like they have finally gotten over the Oswalt curse now can we please score a run against this guy and/or win a freaking ball game against this guy?!?!?!!??!?!!?

redsfan_12
05-02-2010, 04:30 PM

How was that not a first pitch strike on Pujols???????????????? That was the same pitch Hannigan struck out on.

arkimadee
05-02-2010, 04:50 PM
Pujols also hits the best pop ups in the game.

arkimadee
05-02-2010, 05:00 PM
another decent game for Harang. Hope this is a good sign of things to come in non Chris Carpenter games

arkimadee

come on Gomes.. this would be a good time to go yard

BUTLER REDSFAN
05-02-2010, 05:09 PM
No Gomes at bat lasts more than 3 pitches.

BUTLER REDSFAN
05-02-2010, 05:10 PM
Lets see if this becomes the usual Dusty bullpen outing..harang can go 6 innings but it will somehow take at least 5 pitchers more to finish the game.

arkimadee
05-02-2010, 05:10 PM
Gomes never tries to improve himself.. He tries to swing for the fences every atbat. With his power think of how good of a hitter he could be if he got smart and started working counts. That kind of crap only works in A ball

arkimadee
05-02-2010, 05:11 PM
Carlos Fisher is trash!

arkimadee

any update on Mike Lincoln today?

05-02-2010, 05:14 PM
If he keeps pitching like today, Harang's ERA will be down to 6.00 in no time.

Jack Burton
05-02-2010, 05:15 PM
They are WAY better than us. Pujols is the best player in the history of this game.

I'm sure they would have, but Pujols doesn't miss chances. If it were a reds player today he would make a dumb swing and ground into a double play or pop it up.

Three hits don't do much for any team. The Reds had several chances to hurt Carpenter but wasted them.

Get back to Cincy and take the Mets series and go from there.

05-02-2010, 09:14 PM
missed the game. i knew carpenter was throwing and it would be tough for the reds, but they only got 3 hits?!?! wow....harangs lined looked pretty darn good, just no run support. hopefully harang is coming around. how did bruce do? his bat seems to be coming along too. all good things.
