Interesting. I would have started Hanigan and batted him 2nd, or I would even consider hitting Hernandez 2nd right now. I put the rookie in the 8th hole.

Oh dear lord. I hope Brandon is back tomorrow. This team has played short too many times this year.

This game is HUGE for Johnny C. After sitting out the suspension and the horrible last outing, he needs to go 6 minimum and if possible 7 with no more then 105 pitch count. He needs to throw strikes early, MAKE the cub hitters beat him, not walks.

Oh dear lord. I hope Brandon is back tomorrow. This team has played short too many times this year.

If dusty is smart (which is a HUGE assumption) he sits Brandon this entire 3 game series and allows the swelling to go down and make sure Brandon is 100%.

How do you know he needs three games? What if he needs 10 days to get to 100%? What if he needs one? What if he won't be 100% the rest of the season and can only get back to 90%?

Interesting lineup, that's for sure.

I like Bruce leading off, he has a pretty high OBP and will likely see better pitches in a leadoff spot.

Reds
08-27-2010, 03:07 PM
This will be Valaika's first MLB start.

If he needs more then 3 to get back to 100% then he should be DL.

Why would he, pitch around him to go after the rookie. They should have Hernandez hitting second.

I didn't notice, but that's right.

I don't like it at all. Cubs' lineup looks much better.

Gorzelanny can be very tough as well.

If the Reds pull this one out, with that lineup and Cueto on the mound, Toothpick may have the Midas touch this year.

I don't see it happening today, though. I wouldn't be surprised if Votto sees one or two, max, men on base all game.

malcontent
08-27-2010, 04:34 PM
Baker really needed to start Cairo at 2B today.

He's been steady all year, and IMO this is no time to have Valaika start his first game.

Reds
08-27-2010, 04:52 PM
Alfonso Soriano has gone 8-for-20 with three homers against Cueto. Soto has six hits in 19 at-bats. Aramis Ramirez has homered twice in 16 at-bats against him.

Scott Rolen is 5-for-13 against Gorzelanny. Votto has touched 'em all once off of Gorzelanny.

Just wanted to say its nice to get back home after a successful West coast swing. This is my first post here, but I'm a long-time Reds fan back to the Crosley Field days. I got hooked about the time Pete started.

08-27-2010, 05:07 PM
Why would he, pitch around him to go after the rookie. They should have Hernandez hitting second.

If they pitch around Bruce, Vailaika will get good pitches to hit since Votto is behind him.

Valaika may be a rookie, but he has been the most consistent hitter at Louisville all year.

For everyone wondering

Bruce OBP .333
Phillips leading off .323

Joey Votto should be leading off tonight. That OBP is too nice for the middle of the lineup.

One reason Cairo didn't start is because he's "a little sore" according to Baker, he didn't want to risk anything playing him in the field for an entire game.

He did slightly, but he makes that play basically every time. Valaikas throws and Hernandez dropping it were the lesser parts of that play honestly though. Either way it takes a good play to get that ball. I think Bruce D honestly spoils us a little some times when we think something that was a really bad play.

Well, I've viewed Valaika is mostly a singles hitter. So far, he's proven to be much more. But that's just a few games. Good to see him go yard tonight.

I do think Phillips will be traded if someone is willing to take on his $11M contract.

This is Valaika's try out. Defensively, he is solid.

He'll probably never OPS .800 in a season, unless all the stars align just right. But, he'll hit .280 every season, and with very good Defense at 2nd, and plenty of other Offense to go around, he's perfect for the REDS at a cheap price for the next 4+ seasons.

rolenmvp

Kingspoint

Bruce says, "That's how we hit 'em in Texas."

Oxilon
08-27-2010, 09:06 PM
Damn, if there was ever a time I want our bullpen to give up 6 runs, this would be it. I just want to see Bruce bat again tonight for a chance for the 4th.

rolenmvp
08-27-2010, 09:06 PM

Maybe we could score 6 more runs so he could bat again.

Reds

explain more, i have no visual of the STL game

rolenmvp
08-27-2010, 09:07 PM
ball was hit down the right field line, and it hit fair and the ump called it foul like that game in the marlins game, totally screwed.

rolenmvp
08-27-2010, 09:08 PM
would have scored 3 runs and tie the game.

Kingspoint
08-27-2010, 09:08 PM
When did Bruce make an out?

rolenmvp
08-27-2010, 09:08 PM
nationals have stranded 11 baserunners tonight.

Kingspoint
08-27-2010, 09:08 PM
I remember...the missed hit-and-run.

Kingspoint
08-27-2010, 09:08 PM
He didn't make an out. He walked in a beautiful 1st inning at-bat.

redsfan_12
08-27-2010, 09:08 PM
When did Bruce make an out?

He hasnt. 3HR and a BB in the 1st.

Reds
08-27-2010, 09:09 PM
I see the Nats have two errors, anyone know if the dirtybirds earned their runs? ( i know albert went yard in the 1st)

redsfan_12
08-27-2010, 09:09 PM

foxfire123
08-27-2010, 09:10 PM

He got caught in the rundown in the first. Think it was scored a caught stealing.

Whoo! Wow what a big game, not only to win but to get Bruce going, Cueto going, and the pen gets another much needed day off.

rolenmvp

Reds
08-27-2010, 09:13 PM
Great job Q!

Glad Lou doesn't have to watch this.

Kingspoint
08-27-2010, 09:13 PM
I wouldn't be upset with Dusty if he let's Cueto go 122-124 pitches and complete this game.

rolenmvp
08-27-2010, 09:13 PM

Only one NL team has a better record than the REDS.

Reds
08-27-2010, 09:17 PM
Not bad, 35K + is what the club needs.

takealeake
08-27-2010, 09:17 PM
I am wishing we get a few hits just so Bruce gets a chance to go for 4.

Kingspoint
08-27-2010, 09:17 PM
Not bad, 35K + is what the club needs.

And for Citizens in Hamilton County to wear a lot of RED during the day, every day.

I was at the game tonight, it was an electric atmosphere! I get to the park and immediately I people in the row behind me talking about how much of an idiot Dusty is for batting Bruce in the leadoff spot. :rolleyes: I don't want to toot my own horn but I think I was right in that he did see some pretty good pitches tonight. If Bruce can have patience at the plate, he has the ability to be a special player, no doubt about it.



Interesting lineup, that's for sure. I like Bruce leading off, he has a pretty high OBP and will likely see better pitches in a leadoff spot.
