Tonight will be game 600 played at GABP. The Reds are 300-298-1 through 599.

San Francisco is 27-6 when scoring four or more runs in a game and 4-19 when scoring fewer than four runs. They've also posted a 22-5 record when scoring a game's first run.

Bruce WAS the hot hand last night.

And he cannot replace Gomes with Heisey because he's replacing him with Nix tonight.

So basically, the hot hand last night, Bruce, is back in the lineup with 2 guys coming off the bench.

Well, Strasburg hasn't K'd anyone yet in the first inning. He's a bust. :D

Reds
06-08-2010, 08:11 PM
The tie (I'm sure) was a result of a tied rain delayed game that was never made up due to irrelevancy. It likely came against the pirates.

I'm watching the NATS game to start the night, first time I haven't started with the Reds game this year.

is that Bob Costas on the mike!

He throws an 89mph Fastball followed by an 87mph Changeup.

You can't stand Bob Costas? Why? Is he too arrogant for you? I used to think that but he's awful knowledgeable and hearing him on the Dan Patrick show brought me around even more.

Lightning in a bottle is what that Strasburg kid is. amazing action on every pitch I saw him throw.

Time for the Reds to get them bats out. Is it going to rain tonight?

If you like him that's fine. I won't say anything against him, then.

Strasburg strikes out the side in the 2nd.

Rough numbers, rough play. He's better than that.

It wasn't close. He argued that the 1st basemen foot was pulled off the bag on the stretch. it wasn't. he was grasping for something to disagree about, because he made a bad base running error.

I'd say most of our base running errors come between 1st and 2nd. a disproportional amount probably.

Kingspoint
06-08-2010, 08:35 PM
Good thing LeCure's going tonight.

Bailey just gave up 4 Runs in the 2nd inning.

There are dozens and dozens of sites.

In 3100+ career Plate Appearances with two strikes on him, Adam Dunn OPS'd a whopping .578. I would say whatever approach he was taking with two strikes on him didn't work too well. With two strikes on him he was Willy Taveras.

True. The rest of the game is the mental part. If the REDS can get him to where he's comfortable, he can become a great asset. Don't know any other way to do that though than to throw him out there in situations like this.

The team just has to take some losses so teams like "the REDS" can get quality players instead of buying them like "the Yankees" and "the Cardinals".

with the bullpen problems being a constant, the change (for the worse) lately has been the offense. it really doesn't matter what hte bullpen gives up, because at last glance this lineup wasn't 'stacked' by any means.

stubbs was safe on that one. dusty SHOULD have gotten himself thrown out there, becuase this team lacks a pulse otherwise.
