Does Bronson go until he gives up a run? Already at 89 pitches but pitch count doesn't mean as much with Bronson.

With this lead? You try and stretch him two imo. Long road trip, you want to save your bullpen. And Bronson has been on cruise control all day long.

Nah. He's just a bad announcer. He miscalls plays, confuses players (he called Gomes or some other player on base Bruce), and he's too damn smug.

But, hey, we're leading 10-0. We need something to complain about. ;)

Cabrera has to bat again.

If he has a quick 7th maybe. But why would you want your starting pitcher to be up around 120 pitches if you don't have to?

HalMorrisRules

Thats what I was just thinking. That will be some spirited version of that song wont it?

Vottomatic
07-02-2010, 04:35 PM
I hope Arroyo comes back out.

And if he gives up a leadoff walk or single, then take him out. He's only at 89 pitches right now. One more inning would be nice.

Kingspoint
07-02-2010, 04:35 PM
May as well let Janish get 3 innings of Defense in, eh Duhsty?

He'll get a quick 7th. The Cubs just want to get off the field now after that effort last inning.

Ondrusek has really settled down now that he's been here awhile.

Marty just called the 7th the ugliest inning he has ever seen especially when you consider how well Dempster was dealing up until then.

Not many bad trades for the Reds:

Phillips for a bucket of balls.
Arroyo for Willy Mo See-Ya!
Rolen for EE and Zach Stewart.
Hernandez for the retired Ryan Freel.

Fans vote for the starters only. Manager picks the reserves and injury replacements. Dont worry, Votto is a lock and probably will be the starting DH.

If he is going to let Ondrusek pitch the last three innings why didn't they let Owings do it? Isn't that his job? Now Ondrusek is probably out a game or two.

Vottomatic

Ondrusek has been one of the more reliable arms in the bullpen lately so you waste him in a blowout. Okay.
