Wow. That's beyond surprising. Both Stubbs & Gomes could use a day off. But even more than that, I'm shocked by Janish in the 8 hole and Chris in the 2.

Cueto started off rough in one of his last starts and then ended up finding his groove and pitching five more strong innings. Hopefully he talks with Ramon and Bryan Price between innings and settles down again like last time. He's not missing by much.

Why not have Smith walk Castro instead of having Masset come in and intentionally walk him?

There is a reason, although the circumstances are unlikely.

Masset, the new pitcher, is required to pitch to one batter. If you let him do the intentional walk, he can then be replaced if a lefty pinch hitter comes up. I think that's the reason.

MLB audio? If so, pause it and then unpause it. It lets it catch up from the delay.

Amen. Despite giving up 2 runs in his 1st outing....he had nasty stuff.

Today it was nasty x2. His 3 strikeout pitches were unhittable.

Disappointing and bizarre game. Cueto dodges bullet after bullet, leaves a scoreless tie and we can't get it down. I know you can't win them all, but it would have been nice to have grabbed this one. Lets get them tomorrow.

I know a loss really isn't a laughing matter but I am beyond amused that the Cubs left half of Chicago on base today and only got three runs out of it. :laugh: I guess that's some payback for us leaving half of Cincy on base in Thursday's game and still getting a win out of it. Hopefully tomorrow the offense comes back to life and we get the series win. Lilly is pretty good but I think our guys can get to him. Hopefully good Mike Leake shows up tomorrow and he can get win #6. :)

BTW, how are the Reds against lefty starters this year? I'm too lazy to go look for splits like that myself. ;)

They are at or near the top of the league for every major stat vs. lefties.
