Reds vs Livan
O. Cabrera: .455 OBP in 33 PA
S. Rolen: .638 OPS in 40 PA, 1 HR, 4 RBI
R. Hernandez: 3 for 11 no XBH
Rest of lineup: 7 for 20, 2 HR

Stubbs: has not faced Hernandez

Hernandez with 5+ career ERA in June, 5+ career ERA vs the Reds in 13 starts. I think that 2.15 ERA is due for a little correction!

Yep,Livan's smoke and mirror's ERA has got to end soon.

When Harang finds his release point that slider looks great. Combine that with better than average fastball command for him and I think we could be in for a good outing.

But really Harang has a good downward plane on that fastball and he's keeping it down today. This isn't the same pitcher that got banged up multiple times in April.

Ramon :(

I don't blame Ramon at all. Stubbs is a young player and you have to be patient with him, and you want him to be patient at the plate. But he has to know the situation there. He's got a man at second and no one out, and one of the two slowest runners in the lineup behind him. He's got some pop in his bat and he needs to swing at one of those mid 80 mph fastballs. Once he got ahead in the count, he seemed bound and determined to take a walk. Normally that would be fine, but Hernandez followed that up by doing the predictable thing, grounding into a double play.

It's ok to swing at a hittable pitch Drew.

You gotta have Stubbs steal more. 2 outs and him at first is wasting his speed. Just because Bruce got thrown out you shouldnt shy away from a guy who has more than enough speed to be sucessful 80%+ of the time.

I agree, but I will say in that situation it was tough because Hernandez got behind in the count, and you can't have him taking strike 3 with 2 outs.

I was wondering if it was just me or does he remind anyone else of Paul Pfeiffer from the Wonder Years.

He's certainly a high effort guy, huffing and puffing with each pitch.

So are we going to wait until we're a ton of games out like we usually do to make a deal, or will Jocketty get off his freaking ass and do something about this pen for a change??? Good God. Calling up scrub number 5 from the Bats isn't doing jack crap. We need ACTUAL RELIEF PITCHING. If we can't make a deal in the next week, it's more of the same idiotic front office.

Keels is really brutal to listen to. It's like he doesn't even know what's going on in the game. I swear he said ground ball to start the inning and it's a line drive over Cabrera's head. Then the first pitch to Desmond was called a ball, he clearly fouls a bunt off to make it 1-1. Keels is rattling on about how it's 0-2 and wonders what Riggleman will have Desmond do with an 0-2 count. Then he realizes it's a 1-1 count and somehow manages to convince himself that Desmond didn't foul the second pitch off and that was the one that was called a ball.

I don't get why we're not proactive about this. We have at least DECENT prospects at triple A that we could trade for cheap middle relief I would think. Just look at some of the pure crap we've grabbed for guys like Mercker and Weathers over the years. If we got PTBNL for veteran solid relief guys, you're telling me a Maloney or Lecure couldn't fetch a couple of good relief guys? I don't get it. Middle relief is literally like the CHEAPEST trade value thing you can get!
