Last start: W vs. Marlins; 6 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 7 Ks, 3 BBs
Last 3 starts: 2-0, 17 IP, 1.59 ERA, 20 Ks
Note: at home, his K:BB ratio is 46:4, but on the road it is 22:10.

Arroyo
10-4, 3.96 ERA (4-2, 4.01 at home)

Last start: W vs. Rockies; 7 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 4 Ks, 1 BB
Last 3 starts: 3-0, 21 IP, 1.29 ERA, 10 Ks
Note: he's won 5 of his last 6 starts, and his ERA has dropped below 4.00 for the first time since mid-April

pretty solid lineup.. kinda makes baker look smart for the lineup he used yesterday that won the game and put up 8 runs and allowed him to use this lineup today

thats not how bakermetrics work. actually anytime we face an ace pitcher, dont we usually do the opposite. dustys logic being jump on fastballs on the first pitch?

Cabrera only hitting .213 w/ a .515 OPS against Right-handers.

He should be sitting down for this one.

Let's Go REDS!

Would love to see Cabrera be patient since he can't get a hit tonight anyway.

Good job by Brandon in the first at-bat.

And.....Cabrera fails to get it out of the infield.

GIDP
07-21-2010, 07:20 PM
Every pitch but 1 has been a 98 MPH fastball.

Cabrera didnt see a ball in the strike zone...

Kingspoint
07-21-2010, 07:20 PM
....at least he took 4 pitches.

I can live with that from him.

BakoTheTako
07-21-2010, 07:20 PM
Are you kidding me Cabrera. You were 100% taking a pitch and you fall down off a curveball that should have been a strike?

rolenmvp

this is going to be a longggg night, and a pitchers duel...

14 pitches to make 3 outs.

I call those productive outs.

GIDP
07-21-2010, 07:22 PM
5 pitches in the zone out of the 15 he threw...

This is going to be pathetic if he starts throwing strikes.

How about you go stand in the batter box and see how you fare against SS.

texasdave
07-21-2010, 07:41 PM
If Strasburg gets that call he is going to be very tough to hit. Well it was a GameDay ball anyway.

sivman17

it was outside, you're right.. just rewound it.. catcher sets up outside and it didn't touch the plate

GIDP

The pitcher matters none at times for this team. When they are patient they score runs, when they arent they get shut out.

Nobody has even attempted a steal in Bronson Arroyo's last 15 starts.

That's amazing.

Swinging at balls and fouling them off doesnt mean patient.

I am sure many of those pitches looked like strikes. Strausburg isn't called a pitching phenom for nothing he has stuff to fool the best of hitters.

Cabrera couldn't have hit that curveball with an ironing board.

Kingspoint
07-21-2010, 07:59 PM
Leave it to the REDS to come up with the best hit by a right-handed batter (Phillips) against Strasburg this season (only other hit was a Double).

Cabrera really, really, really sucks against Right-handers, but this is a very good at-bat by him.

Redlegs_87
07-21-2010, 08:00 PM
Ocab comes through!

texasdave

Votto supplies the out Ocab was sure to be.

GIDP
07-21-2010, 08:01 PM
You know, even though he got a hit, I think Cabrera is like the opposite of Marmol. I dont think Marmol could throw 3 strikes before he threw 4 balls, and I dont think Cabrera would take 4 balls before he swung 3 times no matter where the pitch was in most ABs.

texasdave
07-21-2010, 08:01 PM
What did you guys say about Ocab?

The truth.

sivman17
07-21-2010, 08:01 PM
48 pitchers through 3 for SS.. keep this up and he'll be done after 6. reds are doing a good job of being patient

Kingspoint

You mean, "in best record in the National League" news.

Why have so low expectations?

GIDP
07-21-2010, 08:02 PM
What did you guys say about Ocab?

He is terrible and likely will continue to be terrible? Getting an RBI doesnt take away from the fact that hes terrible.

I could have gotten that one.

rolen would have had that...

Kingspoint
07-21-2010, 08:08 PM
arroyo losing it...

Not at all.

That's a double-play if there was a "real" 3rd Baseman at 3rd for the REDS.

Kingspoint

Easily.

Someone like, say, Paul Janish?

It's OK to walk done.

It's not OK for your fielders to whiff at easy groundballs.

Reds
07-21-2010, 08:10 PM
i'd walk 'em loaded and face Pudge.

Kingspoint
07-21-2010, 08:10 PM
Arroyo just has to come up with a pop-up here with a nice high-inside pitch that he sets up with outside pitches first.

Kingspoint
07-21-2010, 08:11 PM
That run was Dusty's fault for not starting Janish at 3rd Base.

Not Arroyo, not Cairo.

GIDP
07-21-2010, 08:11 PM
limit this to 1 run please :)

texasdave
07-21-2010, 08:12 PM
Sac fly. Tie ball game.

Reds
07-21-2010, 08:12 PM
Bernadina was 3-3 against Arroyo coming into the AB, a sac fly is tolerable if it's not followed by a smash here.

rolenmvp
07-21-2010, 08:12 PM
i would have played janish at 3rd...

Semi-dodged a bullet. One run there isn't bad at all.

GIDP
07-21-2010, 08:15 PM
Cairo at third does make you appreciate Rolen a lot more. He has booted a lot of balls it seems over there.

Reds
07-21-2010, 08:15 PM
Arroyo at 58 pitches through 4, after an 8 pitch 1st inning, they've made him work a bit more.

Very, very good patience at the plate "overall" for the REDS tonight.

We are not a patient team, yet we are making Strasburg pitch.

07-21-2010, 08:19 PM

He has to buy a ticket.

Bruce better take more than 1 pitch....especially since he's got the advantage as a left-hander.

rolenmvp

Show some patience.

Bruce 1 for his last 21. Eek.

So, Valentine says that Baker told Bruce to be more patient...and to slow things down.

When you're an impatient hitter, you don't get calls.

GIDP
07-21-2010, 08:22 PM
Anyone notice that balls on the outside get called on Bruce a ton for strikes? Didnt happen in that AB but he did swing at one. I wonder if its getting to him a little.

rolenmvp
07-21-2010, 08:22 PM
come on miggy!! light into one and make up for that play at 3rd base..

Kingspoint

We should be able to steal against Strasburg.

Especially with Cairo at the plate.

He probably calls another one here.

Cairo is a good hit-and-run player.

GIDP
07-21-2010, 08:24 PM
Seriously hitting and running probably causes more DPs and bad swings than a straight steal results in an out.

FlyerFanatic
07-21-2010, 08:25 PM

texasdave
07-21-2010, 08:25 PM
Woohoo. 2nd and 3rd with one out. Bruce being aggressive.

Kingspoint
07-21-2010, 08:25 PM
Seriously hitting and running probably causes more DPs and bad swings than a straight steal results in an out.

Sometimes. But, with a guy like Cairo and Bruce on 1st it's a good play.

GIDP
07-21-2010, 08:25 PM
Cairo is a good hit-and-run player.

The problem is that the hit and run is a dumb play.

Forcing a player to swing at the pitch no matter what it is a dumb play. I dont care if it works every once in a while.

You need to learn more about baseball if you think it's a dumb play.

Reds
07-21-2010, 08:30 PM
No, it wasn't close. It was made even worse because the throw was up the line and pudge swiped tagged him, no chance to even make pudge sweat.

I don't mind the aggressiveness.
