Janish getting the start at SS, Rolen back.

I'll take it upon myself to avoid the sweep. Probably no PBP from me today, though.

Glad to see Rolen back and Janish getting a start. Not so thrilled to see Paul in the two hole, I'd rather see him swap places with Hanigan. But oh well; shortstop bats second, dude. ;)

Here's to a Reds win and--regardless of the outcome--first place at the break!

Hanigan ain't starting according to the SD lineups I've seen. Da Corky is in there.

The fourth inning was the 2007-08 Reds. Bases loaded and Gomes, as is his custom swings at the first pitch against a pitcher who couldn't find the strike zone. Then Bruce, also always impatient, swings at the second pitch into a double play. Has anyone run baseball IQ tests on these guys? And the statistics posted on Bruce earlier in the thread pretty much tells me that you do not want him up in scoring opportunities.

Had nothing to do with that. He just isn't my favorite player. The offense from the catching position has been good all year until Corky came up. Now...

I think the reason that Abe is up here has something to do with two catchers having to have been put on the DL.

IMO, Miller has done a decent job for the Reds given the situation. Ramon should be back a few games after the All Star break and then Corky will be a Bat again. However, I was glad that we had someone that could step in and fill the gap as well as he did.

I was hoping that Baker had the balls to pinch hit for him and send a message to the Kid.

The message being:

If you swing on the first pitch with the bases loaded and hit a sreaming liner which is unluckily caught and turned into a DP, you will be benched.

I don't think it's a question of Baker having the balls to send such a message, he just doesn't have the stupidity to send such a message.

I think the reason that Abe is up here has something to do with two catchers having to have been put on the DL.

IMO, Miller has done a decent job for the Reds given the situation. Ramon should be back a few games after the All Star break and then Corky will be a Bat again. However, I was glad that we had someone that could step in and fill the gap as well as he did.Rem

Agreed. :thumbup:

The message being:

If you swing on the first pitch with the bases loaded and hit a sreaming liner which is unluckily caught and turned into a DP, you will be benched.

I don't think it's a question of Baker having the balls to send such a message, he just doesn't have the stupidity to send such a message.

Well said. :laugh::laugh::laugh:

Interesting that the Reds are about to go 20 innings without scoring and still we've been right there every game. What if we were the one getting a hit here and there and a good pitcing performance from the bullpen on Friday. That's what separates champions from also-rans. I think this series tells us a lot about this team.

Joey did as well. If played cleanly, he would have been held to a single. He's a hustling, hard nosed machine, but he has a tendency to watch his long fly balls off the bat.

I think vets ailing is a problem once again. Between Rolen and Hernandez and Cabrera, we don't look too healthy. That and Gomes is no longer batting .500 with RISP. This may be a sign to start looking for OFFENSIVE reinforcements at the deadline. If Rolen goes down, we are up a creek.

Do you give Wood a slot in the starting rotation? With Arroyo's remarks today and Harang's troubles, we could see a rotation of Wood,Cueto, Maloney, Chapman, Leake, and Volquez. Who's the odd man out?

BTW, another impatient hitter in Votto. These guys are anxious today.

17 consecutive scoreless innings.

Of these guys....Chapman. He needs more time. Definitely all of this season, probably some of next too. His stuff is electric...but his command.

But I see Chapman AND Maloney out. Bailey in.

I'm not suggesting benching OCab. I'm suggesting more of a platoon, similar to the catching situation earlier in the season.

Not to absolve the offense, by any stretch, but it's pretty weird that they get swept four games while outhitting the Phillies, 34-28.

The Reds now lead the majors in being shut out (10).

That's a lot for one half of a season, and I wonder how many of those games were 1-2 run losses. Score a run or two in half of those and they're possibly 5 games ahead in first place, instead of 1 game.

Jay Bruce = zero RBI's in last 11 games - doesn't help. Left 3 on base today.

Phillips, Gomes, Bruce and Hanigan left 14 runners on yesterday.

Too many guys seriously slumping at the wrong time. Bruce has never really improved or come around with lefties either.

Another "problem" was that during this series we weren't getting the hits when we needed them. For example - we had bases loaded yesterday with no outs and got nadda, and that may be due to the fact that a few of these guys were pressing, trying to make something happen.

This little break may do some of them some good. But this team performed well above expectations during the first half. I think we'll see an interesting second half.
