I'm more concerned about how Volquez will perform today than this lineup. It seems when Dusty rolls with a lineup that I don't agree with, they have mad hits like they was Rod Carew.

While he was wild his last start I saw sparks of his stuff. Just hasn't gotten it consistent. I have a feeling today will be like his return against the Rockies.

Anyone find it strange we're starting a game at five past noon and it's not a get-away-day? Seems like the times of today's game and tomorrows are backwards.

Well there really isn't a better option (of those in the starting lineup) and Janish has hit in the 3 games since O-Cab went down. OBP is .500 (I know it's only been 3 games) but I can't fault Dusty for this.

The problem is with that is Matt Kemp is hated despite being their best player. Stubbs does actually deserve to be benched a little.

Oh and BTW this seems like a demotion soon line up Dusty loves to go out there with. He's giving Nix and Stubbs a chance to fight their way on the roster since Dickerson is coming back soon.

Phillips hit it hard on a flyout to left.
Janish fouls out.
Votto weak grounder on 3-1 pitch (swung at ball four).

Janish has an uncanny ability to foul out. Seems like he's already done it a handful of times since Cabrera's injury.

Only two innings. We've struck three balls well off this guy so far. I think it's only a matter of time before we plate a few.

What did Nix do?

Runners on 1st and 2nd with 1 out, Koyie Hill batting, liner in left-center gap, Nix laid out and caught it (full extension, inch or two off ground). Doubled up Byrd at second who assumed it was dropping and was halfway to home.

Nix's was much better... Byrd at least could claim the ball had almost no chance of being caught.

RedsFanInBama

Oh... I guess thatwould explain it. I think you are right with the hit going to the right side.

Reds
08-07-2010, 02:51 PM

when the ball hit the bat Ramon was off like there were 2 outs or something

I hope Edinson is consciously trying to ease up and not throw as hard, because the gun's reading like 89-92.

RedsFanInBama
08-07-2010, 02:54 PM
I'd like to think he got a terrible read of the ball, but I almost think he believed there were two outs. Which is just infuriating. We had a chance to clear the two hole that inning.

Volq needs to work through this... I think he will bounce back soon

RedsFanInBama
08-07-2010, 03:01 PM
Let's be honest. He's allowed one run through three innings. It's not like he's awful out there. Definitely not as sharp as we'd like, but can we really expect that coming off that injury?

Look at Tim Hudson for example. When he came back last season, he was pretty rough. This year he's an All-Star again.

Brisco
08-07-2010, 03:02 PM
Right now I think he is struggling because he cant through fastball strikes when he throws all out... but when he eases up, there is no movement on his fastball... so he is trying to rely too much on his junk

Reds
08-07-2010, 03:02 PM

I'm fine if every single starter we have carries a 3.00 ERA :D

my only issue if his fastball so far, looks as if he has trouble controlling her

They only got two hits. Fukudome's double was on a fastball. Castro's hit looked like a definite off-speed pitch to me, but maybe it wasn't. The sac fly was a fastball.

RedsFanInBama
08-07-2010, 03:09 PM
Well, good AB at least. Nothing like seeing the guy before you walk on four pitches and then going up there and hitting a weak chopper on the first pitch.

I still maintain that Bruce would be a more effective player if we removed the left sleeve from his jersey.

Griffey012
08-07-2010, 03:09 PM
Jay, remember when you first came up and would shoot the ball into the left center gap? Please go back to that approach.

Brisco
08-07-2010, 03:10 PM
He just needs the same break that Stubbs just had. Time to sit back and take it all in stride... time to realize that it is not all on his shoulders.

the next time jay bruce swings at a first pitch and grounds out he should owe dusty 20 pushups

Wow.... the Cubs are way ahead of Volkie's fastball

Volquez has never been an easy pitcher to watch. Cueto either for that matter. They are not efficient workers.

i could be wrong but i haven't seen volquez get past 93 on the gun today

08-07-2010, 03:18 PM
He can't throw his junk for strikes right now and they know it. Let's see a hard hit DP now.

Hill and then pitcher, light at the end of the tunnel if he stays focused

Brisco
08-07-2010, 03:19 PM
He has hit 94 a couple of times on fastballs out of the zone

He's not even close. Ugh.

Volquez sucks. This is why if someone is tearing up AAA we should take it as a grain of salt

Forget the junk for now.. you have to just trust your D and send the balls up broadway.

Vottomatic
08-07-2010, 03:20 PM
If Volquez has minor league options left, he needs to be sent down to work on his command and pitch efficiency. This is ridiculous.

RedsFanInBama

That's what Cueto has learned. Cueto has foregone the K's to allow for him going deeper into the game which rests or bullpen better.

Hill swung at a ball and helped him out. Now he needs to throw strikes to the pitcher.

Pitcher up, if he gives up a run now it'll be greasy

Brisco
08-07-2010, 03:22 PM
Wow first curve for a strike this inning and he follows it with another

Vottomatic
08-07-2010, 03:22 PM
He's never going to be efficient, but this is just ridiculous.

That's what is so great about Wood, Leake, Arroyo, and Cueto.........they've all become guys who can go 7 innings efficiently and will strike out on average 2 to 6 batters per game and allow the defense to get it done.

Volquez doesn't do that which might make him trade bait eventually if he continues to be inefficient. He never really was to begin with before TJ surgery, but our starting rotation wasn't what it is today.

Brisco
08-07-2010, 03:23 PM
BP recovers from bobbles better than anyone I have seen

I know he's only given up one, but if I'm Dusty I'd have my bullpen (Carlos Fisher) starting to stir in the bottom of the fifth. I'm not sure Edinson is going to make it through another inning with the top of their order up.

Brisco
08-07-2010, 03:24 PM
I think this game is a great example of how our focus on defense as a team has made our entire rotation much better

redsfan_12

5 is about all he can go if we want to win.

No, he's in the bullpen in Chicago. Springer went on the DL.

Fisher was recalled today to replace Springer (15 DL)

They just showed Fisher sitting along the railing of the stands last inning and talked about him.

As a group, can we all just agree that no one on our roster and i mean NO ONE sucks?

I am getting sick of reading this in every single game thread of the year. It is amazing that we are in first with a roster of Votto, Rolen, Phillips plus 22 other guys that have been rated as "sucks" in at least one game thread this year.
