Who bats 4th? Stubbs is hitting like .340 in the 2 hole this year.

Just move everyone else up a spot. That would put Bruce in the 4 hole, and maybe batting Phillips 2nd can get him going.

I'm sure he goes down when Cairo comes off the dl, and it's because he has options. I'd rather FDA Cairo, because Rolen is going nowhere.

He's traditionally struggled in april so why people are shocked is questionable at the very least. Some guys just struggle early on. If he starts to trurn it on and starts blowing people away its doubtful people will still be worried about a rough April.

Willie Harris Who?

The Pinch-Hitter in the on deck circle!

texasdave
05-06-2012, 02:30 PM
Bruce has 18 RBI but has to work on those 'driving in runs" skills. How many RBI does Phillips have? Nine-game hitting streak. Baker would no doubt be the Last Comic Standing.

moewan

texasdave
05-06-2012, 02:32 PM
“His leg is better now,” Baker said. “Sometimes you struggle. There’s no alibi for it. We know for sure he’s going to hit. Remember me saying when you start the season hurt, you’re playing catch up. He hasn’t caught up yet.

But he's gonna bat right behind Joey Votto until he does. LOLOL

Latos in a cakewalk today. Pittsburgh would have a hard time scoring five runs if you spotted them a four-spot.

texasdave
05-06-2012, 02:36 PM
Billy! Billy! Billy! What are you swinging at?

05-06-2012, 02:38 PM
I guess Pedro Alvarez is finally starting to figure things out.

PhotogDoug
05-06-2012, 02:40 PM
Latos just has to not reach 60 pitches through 3 Innings and we'll be fine. He's getting up there...

moewan

I guess Pedro Alvarez is finally starting to figure things out.

Do you have the extra inning package? And are you getting the Pittsburgh feed?

That's what I was worried about. His Getting ahead to Alvarez and then falling behind didn't help....

Hopefully Latos is working out the final kinks. The Pirates are a good team to do just that.

texasdave

Frazier robbed of extra bases.

texasdave

Reds have only used one relief pitcher in the series. Bullpen should be ready, willing and able.

Frazier is so much better a hitter than Rolen right now, it isn't debateable, except in Dusty's fantasy world.

texasdave
05-06-2012, 02:50 PM
Would be nice to see an easy inning here for Latos.

texasdave
05-06-2012, 02:52 PM
If the Reds played nothing but one-game series, they would be about 24-2.

Latos got a freebie. I would make him go 115-120 pitches today.

Mutaman
05-06-2012, 03:02 PM
Latos is so hard to take. He has a 4-0 lead- throw the ball over the plate. Why is he fooling around throwing to first base. Throw it over the plate.

moewan
05-06-2012, 03:03 PM
With the pitch count, probably going to be a bullpen day today.

Extra bases for Frazier as he celebrates his last day on the big club with Cairo coming back on Monday. Baker just snapped his toothpick.

There is no way they can send Frazier back down. Is there?

Stray

But that would leave you with no LH bats on the bench.

Does it really even matter what side of the plate Willie Harris bats on?

The more surprising move would be DFA'ing Cairo which I highly doubt we'd do. For a team that is offensively challenged at the moment you cannot justify sending Frazier back to AAA with the current bench we have.

texasdave
05-06-2012, 04:34 PM
If the Pie-Rats fail to score in the 9th, the Reds' team ERA at the end of this game will be 3.25. As a Reds' fan I cannot even process that number. There may have been years when they did not have a single pitcher with an ERA that low.

I imagine that will be the last we see of Willie Harris. It makes too much sense for him to be the odd man out.

Please yes...

It did not make too much sense for him to be on the team out of spring training. So making sense doesn't really apply here.

Good point lol. I think Walt has seen enough, or at least I hope he has.

If we ever get Brandon and Rolen going, this team is going to be tough to beat.

Brandon will hit. Not like a cleanup hitter. But he will hit better than he has shown.

This bullpen is ridiculous. Now 21 straight scoreless innings.

This next stretch of games will be interesting. The level of competition is a tad higher.

Baker will announce after the game that Simon is now my closer...

When you get the ball over the plate with something on it, good things happen. Plus baker did not use Logan and Jose. I like that. Keep those guys fresh. Simon and Hoover can help this team.

Super moon tonight. Last super moon I saw was when the plumber came to fix a leak under the kitchen sink. BA-DA-BING!

That was so random it scared me.

It was a great moon last night -- wife & I - a blanket & a bottle ---

The rest of the story is too racy.

Fixed this Baker quote.


“This hitting ain’t that easy,” Baker said. “Some of these guys on the other team make it look easy.”
