Damn. My bad. I didn't see this under the Cards thread. I thought today was te 23rd all day long!! Even wished my dog a happy bday! Lmao

Reds
06-22-2010, 09:45 PM
I'm looking for the top of our lineup to get on and for Gomes to have a productive evening at the plate.

Hopefully the day off did OCab some good and he responds with some hits.

Baserunner alert! Phillips on first with one down.

texasdave
06-22-2010, 11:22 PM
How bad is your lineup if Conor Jackson is your number three hitter? Billy Beane-Super Genius. Not really.

Gomes with a rocket. Bruce with a flare. No outs

Consecutive singles to start the second.

Nice bunt Drew. Cmon Chris

texasdave
06-22-2010, 11:26 PM
Dusty loves to bunt early in the game. But not when it comes to squeezing a run in to tie a game or take the lead late.

redsfan_12
06-22-2010, 11:27 PM
damn Heisey..that was right downt he middle

texasdave
06-22-2010, 11:28 PM
Strikeouts are the same as any other out...just keep telling yourself that.

Cabrera's OPS continues to freefall. Down to .621 now. For the month of June - .505.

texasdave
06-22-2010, 11:37 PM
6 up, 6 down.

Reds
06-22-2010, 11:37 PM
The A's play by play announcer said last inning, 'and the reds bunt, in the second inning'.

redsfan_12
06-22-2010, 11:38 PM
I would have bunted Stubbs there too. I dont see what the problem is.

texasdave
06-22-2010, 11:38 PM
the A's anouncer said last inning, 'and the reds bunt, in the second inning'.

Dusty loves to bunt early. Against this A's lineup two runs might be enough.

Phillips with a knock!

texasdave

Two for two for Brandon.

Votto with a knock! 3-0

texasdave

Votto's stick is working again. Reds offense back in gear?

damnit..everytime..with 2 freakin outs

texasdave
06-22-2010, 11:56 PM
Crisp tightens things up considerably with a 2-run jack. 3-2.

texasdave
06-22-2010, 11:56 PM
If Cordero faces Crisp in the 9th with the game on the line it will be Coco versus Coco.

foxfire123
06-22-2010, 11:56 PM
And like clockwork, here's Bronson's bad inning.....

texasdave
06-22-2010, 11:57 PM
50 pitches through 3 for Arroyo.

Jefferson24
06-22-2010, 11:58 PM
they better plan on hitting tonight, I think the Reds pitching is going to be giving up some more runs.

texasdave
06-22-2010, 11:59 PM
Heisey starts things off nicely.

texasdave
06-23-2010, 12:00 AM
Corky stroking the ball tonight but it was caught by the rightfielder.

texasdave
06-23-2010, 12:09 AM
Bronson bounces back with an impressive 4th. Does Marty go to television when Cowboy rides solo in the broadcasting booth?

BUTLER REDSFAN
06-23-2010, 12:09 AM
if memory serves this is the third or fourth game lately that bronson has been given a big lead--he goes about 4 innngs then gives it up

Jefferson24
06-23-2010, 12:09 AM
i don't like Votto batting with the bases empty

texasdave
06-23-2010, 12:13 AM
Scott Rolen keeps on keeping on.

texasdave
06-23-2010, 12:14 AM
Reds 3 runs on 8 hits. Oakland 2 runs on 2 hits. =(

Arroyo has been ultra efficient except for the third inning.

texasdave
06-23-2010, 12:43 AM
Broken bat single with two down for Jackson. Rolen almost gets him on an excellent play.

anyone know bronsons pitch count?

BUTLER REDSFAN
06-23-2010, 01:01 AM
i think i just saw where it said 89 pitches

texasdave
06-23-2010, 01:03 AM
Arroyo threw 50 pitches in the first three innings. 39 in the last four.

Reds
06-23-2010, 01:04 AM
arroyo for 8 and rhodes in the ninth, maybe. coco threw like 35 pitches yesterday.

texasdave
06-23-2010, 01:04 AM
single Heisey. Miller moves him along with a grounder to the right side.

Jefferson24
06-23-2010, 01:05 AM
we need this run

BUTLER REDSFAN
06-23-2010, 01:06 AM
this run would be huge

texasdave
06-23-2010, 01:06 AM
Matt Belisle with what we might call a Coco-Save. Comes on in the 9th two runs up. Gives up a run on two hits, but gets the save. Belisle quietly having a fine season up in Colorado.

texasdave
06-23-2010, 01:08 AM
On to the bottom of the 8th with the Reds still doubling up the A's - 4 to 2.

8-9-1 up this inning for Oakland.

No leadoff walks please. They haunt. Full count. Cabrera fields and throws low but Votto scoops and we have one down.

BUTLER REDSFAN
06-23-2010, 01:17 AM
ocab finally with a good throw

texasdave
06-23-2010, 01:17 AM
Bronson at 105 pitches. I say let him start the ninth, but the first batter that reaches pull him.

redsfan_12
06-23-2010, 01:17 AM
Who throws the 9th? Didnt fay tweet Coco was unavailable??

texasdave
06-23-2010, 01:18 AM
Reds need tack on a couple more and let us fans relax a little.

texasdave
06-23-2010, 01:19 AM
Coco is warming up per Marty.

foxfire123
06-23-2010, 01:19 AM

Seriously, is that his real name or a nickname? Please tell me it's a nickname and no parent would saddle their kid with a real name like that... ;)

Never Mind: found his Wiki page. Covelli Loyce "Coco" Crisp

texasdave
06-23-2010, 01:19 AM
His real name is something like Codelius i think. Just looked it up. His real name is Covelli.

Rolen with a single. Marty and Cowboy feel there is no way Bronson goes back out there. I would let him go back out.

foxfire123

Come'on Gomes! Insurance!

BUTLER REDSFAN
06-23-2010, 01:24 AM
being a reds fan since i was a kid...not sure how many of these west coast games i have seen where the other team wins in their last at bat and i sat up till 2 am to see it

texasdave

Jay Bruce is gonna open this up right now. Or maybe not.

foxfire123

06-23-2010, 01:27 AM

He is. He pitched to only 1 batter yesterday.

RedsFanInBama
06-23-2010, 01:31 AM
Arthur not available?

Of course he is. But Dusty isn't going to let him close because there's no reason to let your best reliever close games if he doesn't have the "closer" title going into the season.

Bring the brooms tomorrow. I still think Bronson should have started the ninth.

He should not have been out there tonight. If he takes the mound tomorrow I am going to fly to Oakland and shoot Dusty.

OK. I won't do that.

I will wait for them at the airport. Why spend the money to fly to Oakland on getaway day. I might miss him.

RedsFanInBama
06-23-2010, 01:40 AM
It's always something with Cordero. I can count the number of clean innings he's had this year on one hand probably, whether he's rested or not. Maybe he shouldn't have been out there tonight, but it doesn't change the fact that he is sucking this season. Thankfully he came through, though.

I wonder how an inning like that gets Cordero's confidence back? Yes, he got the save. But even he knows that he struggled. Again. You can't keep allowing two baserunners and inning without it coming back to bite you...a lot.

he has no confidence, he hasn't pitched with confidence all year.

Why did Joe Morgan do color for the whole game?? is he doing tv games for the reds now or just a special guest?

He was gonna do radio, but Cowboy kept eating everything Joe brought into the booth.

Think Joe wants to take Chris Welsh's job since he works for the Reds now?

“I told them I was done,” Arroyo said. “I had used up my reserve. I felt like Coco had a better opportunity to get those lefties out with his power arm. They had been seeing me all night. I really didn’t mix it up. I didn’t feel like I could command the inner half of the plate to the lefties.”

That pretty much explains why Bronson didn't come out for the 9th.

That's true, but it could be like Jon Miller who also does Giants games during the week.
