Wow up to 20 innings without scoring...how can such a powerful Card offense do that?

Reds

Minute Made is a heck of a ballyard, wish I could get to a game there.

i've been out for the last two days helping my brother clean up from all the flooding his house go so I have missed the reds the last couple of days.. I saw the scores. Yesterday looked like a game that I should have been happy to skip. Is Rolen on the DL?? I guess the Cards have lost 2 straight?? It looks like if the Cards scuffle this weekend the Reds could be back in front. The Astros got knocked around by the pirates.. lol hopefully they trade oswalt before his start tomorrow though

Getting Scott Rolen back would help. I think they have to make a call on whether to DL him in the next day or two. -fay

Yeah, the Cards lost in 11 yesterday and got rolled 5-0 this afternoon. Lots of talk on St. Louis radio about how overrated Tony. L. is. because he keeps running their JV squad out there, even though they won 8 in a row with backups playing.

Norris has the stuff, just rarely puts it together with solid control. Looked sharp that half inning.

Reds
07-23-2010, 09:12 PM
2.43 ERA from 'Stros starters over the last 18 games, so they are (as a team) improving

Chuck Norris is pitchin' for the 'stros????:eek::laugh:

sabometrics

It amazes me how the Astros consistently find different no-namers whom I've never heard of to start each successive series against the Reds nowadays. Who were those first couple of guys? Bourgeois? Sanchez?

1st and 2nd now after a laser from Berkman juuust escapes O-Cab's glove.

arkimadee

a mistake to lee and it could be 3-0 early

Wood looks very hittable tonight.

Berkman haunts my dreams. He eats an entire box of Wheaties prior to Reds games. :(

Cutter on the fists gets Wood out of the inning. 0-1 after one.

Dale4Saul2Red0
07-23-2010, 09:25 PM

Yup. He has shown random flashes, hopefully tonight isn't one of those nights. Strikeout totals aren't too bad though. Still a long game. Norris tends to have hiccups towards the middle of his starts, even when he gets off to a good start. Runs can come in bunches in one big inning with this guy.

Redlegs_87
07-23-2010, 09:25 PM
Oh look first pitch out.

Great AB Jonny. Jay up now, 1-1 count after a ball low and outside and a foul back to the screen.

first 4 hitters are just going through the motions.. so far it looks like this team doesn' have much spark.. hopefully it don't last through the whole game

As much as I want to keep ragging on that guy because his glove is substandard, he keeps on making up for it with his bat. Hats off to you Miguel, I will cease my attacks (for now) ;)

Business as usual against Johnson, 4 pitch strike-out for Wood.

Who the hell is Bud Norris?

Dale4Saul2Red0
07-23-2010, 09:35 PM
Wood definitely needs to get the ball down. Someone's going to tag him for a deep ball here he keeps getting the ball up like that.

Redlegs_87
07-23-2010, 09:37 PM
Reds wasted great pitching from him last 2 games. Can't expect him to pitch like that all the time. This is probably going to be the game he gets roughed up from the start.

Dale4Saul2Red0
07-23-2010, 09:37 PM
Who the hell is Bud Norris?

That's not a serious question is it? The Astros are in our division, you should know who he is. He was rated as one of their top young arms just last year.

Reds
07-23-2010, 09:37 PM
Who the hell is Bud Norris?

? Astros pitcher, had a winning record last year. still young, probably about Cuetos age.

sabometrics

If I'm not mistaken we've already gone up against Norris one or two times this year ... don't know how you couldn't be acquainted with him yet.

Once, we tagged him for 5 runs I think in a W

If we were swinging at balls I would be much more alarmed, but Norris is throwing pitches right down the zone tonight. You can't try and work the count when someone isn't going to throw a ball. It is okay to give an opposing pitcher credit from time to time, that is allowed.

FlyerFanatic
07-23-2010, 09:46 PM

Goes with the point I made earlier, Norris has gotten off to a ton of good starts in games only to have that one bad inning that ruins the game for him. Can never seem to put it together for 7 or so innings. Hopefully the trend holds true.

Dale4Saul2Red0
07-23-2010, 09:52 PM
Wood is still making me nervous leaving the ball up in the zone a lot tonight, but no one has really made him pay yet.

Is this the most run support that Wood has had so far?

rolenmvp
07-23-2010, 10:12 PM
said it was inexcuseable, marty's exact words. : why would you swing at the first pitch, when the guy has been throwing zero strikes in the zone, why do you do it, is it a brain cramp, i just don't understand it, why swing when he's been all over the place, doesn't make sense cowboy.

first pitch fielders choice to short with the bases loaded and norris not able to throw strikes in the previous atbat

Goes up first pitch swinging. It was a strike but Norris was all over the place this inning and he should have taken the first pitch.

marty just made a interesting point, said this is the most run support for wood since him being called up. just thought you'd like to know.

RedsFanInBama
07-23-2010, 10:15 PM
Is it a coincidence that Wood has some run support in the first game that Corky Miller (God love him) isn't catching him? I love Corky and his 'stache, but I don't think he would have come through last inning like Hanny did.

Sad thing is, if we had kept him he would be a much better SS than ones we've had the past several years. I don't even remember why we got rid of him.

He backed off because Phillips was calling for it. I dont think Phillips thought he was going to go.

He was yelling at him to throw the ball home, not calling for the ball. Brandon was caught with his pants down for sure, but Bruce was never coming hard after that ball.

He didn't do anything wrong, he can't see where the RF is, it's Bruce's job to call him off even if BP is calling for it.

I agree that Bruce is to blame for not catching it, but Brandon should have been more prepared to throw home there. You have to know you have a speedy runner at third. He was definitely caught snoozing on the second half of the play.

Most of them are balls as well. He gets that low outside pitch called a strike on him more than anyone I've seen while watching the Reds this year. He never offers at it until 2 strikes at least.

Jay rolls over on a ball outside. 1 down.

I do wish he'd at least consider using the middle of the field. I know he hit one to left in the previous at-bat, but I think it was more a case of the fastball beating him a little than him intentionally going with the pitch.
