How about a starter in the 8th with only 90 pitches?

frazier not a very good defensive player

Todd Frazier is doing an adequate job at 3B as Rolen's replacement but he looks awkward anytime he tries to backhand a grounder. I'm hoping Scott will take some time to work on Frazier's fielding.

I know that its hard to change the way the game has been played and called since its beginning but with the modern tech we have these days I find it hard to believe that we couldnt come up with a better system then a human eye

Yes, I tip my cap to Mr. Leake. I really was dreading this outing. But he has pitched really well.

Stray

Let him start the 9th and if someone gets on base then you go and get him.

herbdizzle
05-21-2012, 10:24 PM
I have to say that Leake has been pitched a helluva game tonite and looks like he did in the 2nd half of last year. If he continues giving solid efforts and Latos improves his innings to 6+ instead of 5 then the Reds pitching staff begins looking REALLY strong with the movement of Chapman to closer.

keep Leake in for the 9th. no need to use our pen in this game

I don't think that will ever be an option. Technology has a way of failing at times. What happens when your strike zone system freezes up in a crucial moment? I think you have to have an actual human being back there doing it.

I am not saying take the human out of it totally but figure out something to help.

Frazier's swing is so big he can be had with offspeed stuff. I assume that's something they're trying to work on.

I think I've been the last passenger on the Stubbs bandwagon for awhile now, and every time I threaten to jump off, he goes on a tear. I've been hanging on by a thread lately, so hopefully it's kick-started Drew again.

Mes getting some love from Sutcliffe and Boone. He was great tonight, but they're saying he's ready to be the every day starter, so obviously they haven't seen a lot of Reds games this year.

Star of the Game:

3. Marshall (I will still never forgive him for Saturday).


2. Stubbs

And the #1 star:

Mike Leake

Good thing the organization was patient with him. Hes back in form.

Stray
05-21-2012, 10:51 PM
Leake is a little like Arroyo, when they hit their wall things can get ugly fast. He was basically at 100 pitches so I didn't have any issues handing a 3 run lead to the pen for one inning.

Nice to see Stubbs and Leake lead us to a win.

It was an excellent play that set the tone for the 9th inning.....it's the 3rd time I've seen him slide feet first to catch a ball coming in.....might be his last for a while as he somehow jammed his shoulder sliding feet first????

I think Dusty is waiting on one of our starters to blow up in the first or second inning before he uses Lecure.
