Heisey in the two spot, and Janish 8th, I agree Mr. Baker.

Sounds like a decent lineup for a Rolen off day.

Very confusing that Bruce is sitting against the RH pitching after he faced a LH one yesterday.

Why didnt Stubbs play CF last night with heisey in RF and Gomes in left.

Then today Bruce play RF Heseiy in CF and Nix in Left

Seems pretty counter productive right now dont you think?

Does Rolen really need a day off with tomorrow being an off day? it's a good thing we aren't in a pennant race or anything.

I woulda played Bruce for Gomes in the lineup...but Bruce is struggling so bad maybe he does need a day or 2 off.

Gomes has been every bit as bad as Bruce, but still I just wonder how much Baker really thinks some times.

Maybe hes just trying to give Bruce 2 days off back to back which I guess is ok, but you would think if Bruce is going as bad as he has been why the shoddy line up work.


Also anyone else find it rofl that Dusty can go from batting Janish 2nd one day to batting him 8th.

50% of Janish ABs have come in the 2nd spot or the 8th spot. You would think Dusty would realize how just flat out silly that seems.

True, Bruce may need that shrink from "The Natural" to come talk to him. Come to think of it the whole OF may need him.

52% of the time Janish hits in the 2nd spot when he bats
33% of the time he his 8th.

Which is it Dusty is Janish a bad hitter or is he a good hitter?

Any lineup that doesn't include Stubbs and Bruce seems very productive to me right now. I'd be for sitting Gomes, too, but all three of them can't sit.

So in one night he goes from being good enough to bat second, that is unless there is a runner on second and it's the 8th inning to batting 8th today? More proof our manager doesn't have a clue. And yes Janish should be batting 8th, so why was he in the 2 hole yesterday?

Brandon is now 13/22 in stolen bases. He probably doesn't need to try anymore unless it's a super slow pitcher.

Told ya. Gomes pops up ball 4

RedsFanInBama
08-04-2010, 12:49 PM
Gomes has nary a clue. He's a fastball hitter, so naturally he swings at a 3-1 breaking ball off the plate and hits a weak pop-up. Maybe he needs glasses so he can see the ball and recognize the pitch better.

texasdave
08-04-2010, 12:50 PM
Pitchers finally realized all he can hit is a fastball. Why he would ever see a fastball in the zone is a mystery to me.

Grooved a 3-1 fastball, McCutchen bombs it. 1-0 Pirates.

Simple, I expect this team with this talent level to be better then what they are right now and when I can look at the manager and see the stupid moves he makes as a main reason why, I refuse to sit back and just 'accept" it because we are in first place.

JMO, I don't think it was a sacrifice. I think Nix saw how deep the third baseman was playing and saw an easy hit. The only problem is that it was a horrible bunt.

Karstens is a fool. I don't care how bad a hitter you perceive Janish to be, you make Cueto drive in that run.

Reds
08-04-2010, 01:06 PM

We have been spoiled by Brandon's play in the field. We come to expect him to make that type of play.

i was going to add that point but i type so slow that it would have taken me to the 5th to get it in

This Pirates play-by-play guy is a ****** to the third degree.


Yeah I have to agree with you and the other guy who commented. I'm listening to the Pirates feed on XM.

Last night, they said "Leake is going to get hit and he should just put the bat down and go to first base." Then they got all over Phillips for "glaring" at the pitcher who just hit Leake. Today they did again -- color guy said he hadn't seen anything like it since A ball.

Really? A major leaguer glaring at a guy who hit his pitcher on purpose? They are so full of BS, I see this every time it happens, and often we get a bench-clearer. Pussoires.

was that the first leadoff HR we've given up this year?

Reds' pitchers have only given up 11 home runs in the first inning and only 7 homers to the #1 spot in the batting order, so it could well be.

How effing stupid is it to try and advance from 1st on that play? You want to open up a base to make sure Janish gets walked? Hatcher should have grabbed him by the shirt.

Maybe Nix thought the throw would go in to third.

Hmm I wonder which of these situations I would take and which seemed the most likely given that situation
man on first and 3rd with 1 out
2nd and 3rd with 1 out with pitcher in the on deck circle
man on 3rd 2 outs and pitcher in the on deck circle

redlegs2370
08-04-2010, 01:47 PM
Even if Nix steals 2nd, the Pirates would intentionally walk Janish. I don't see what would have been gained there

I love how trading away ludwick was a sense of panic and it's gonna bite them. If an outfielder goes down, they're in serious trouble. They don't have a guy in aaa to go get. And now freese is gone for the year. Pujols hasn't been that good. First place is ours for the taking to run away with... But will we?

Probably has more to do with the 2nd out being a bad base running decision (he was not being forced out at 2nd) by Nix rather that the double play being a result of Hernandez hit.

texasdave
08-04-2010, 01:58 PM

08-04-2010, 01:58 PM

He got an RBI because it was a sac fly, that ended that paly, the next play was a put out on the throw.

Pretty sure thats how it goes down.

08-04-2010, 01:58 PM
By the same logic you could get the RBI on a "triple play".

A run can score when you record 3 outs on one play.

Bases loaded, sac fly the runner from third and have the runners at 2nd and 1st make outs after that.

A run can score when you record 3 outs on one play.

Bases loaded, sac fly the runner from third and have the runners at 2nd and 1st make outs after that.

Or a simpler one....bases loaded, ground into a double play. Runner that was at second tries to score and gets nailed at the plate, or gets caught running too far off third.
