According to some on Sun Deck, the Reds are a garbage team with no players, no coaching, no hope. According to the standings, the Reds could be a first place team by 11pm tonight.

Cozart SS
Stubbs CF
Votto 1B
Phillips 2B
Bruce RF
Ludwick LF
Frazier 3B
Mesoraco C
Leake P

Back-to-back good outings from Leake would be a huge plus.

Was looking over our schedule, it's crazy how many good teams we've played early in the year. After this series we get the Pirates, Rockies and Stros for a while. It would be nice to take 2 or 3 in this series.

Reds have played an average schedule so far according to these folks. Ranked 14th out of 30 teams. .500 winning percentage for teams played to date. The remaining schedule does get easier. Overall, this site has the Reds 2012 schedule ranked at 29th out of 30. Reds don't make the schedule. They just have to take advantage of it.

Mike Minor's last four starts are very ugly. And that is being kind. In those four starts he has given up 7,8,6 and 6 earned runs respectively, never going more than 6.1 innings. The Pittsburgh Pirates score 7 earned runs off of him! In 20.2 innings pitched he has allowed 32 hits, 27 earned runs, 10 walks and 7 home runs. His ERA is 11.76. Reds should feast.

The Reds also tend to make awful pitchers look like cy young candidates

Does Chapman's role as the closer mean he can come out and pitch the last inning in a save scenario again tonight, or is he going to get rest just 1 in like 3 days now or something

Uggla & McCann are a combined 1-for-39 in the first inning this season. Wow. (Uggla is 0 for 17)

That is Stubbs & Cozart like.

New York Red
05-21-2012, 08:17 PM
I always hate seeing Uggla at the plate. I don't know if it's his arms or what, but I get the feeling every time he's going to hit one a mile.

texasdave
05-21-2012, 08:18 PM
Leake reaches the mandatory 20-pitch first-inning level.

It's not looking like a pitcher's zone tonight. Or maybe the ump just respects Votto that much.

I don't like the quick outs, but we're squaring this guy up. I'm not terribly worried about his pitch count anyway. He's not going to be around that long regardless.

BluegrassRedleg

BluegrassRedleg

This guy has been horrific, and the Reds are sitting on 1 run. Kind of a snapshot of the whole season. Gonna need Leake to be "on" tonight.

o well at least we raised his pitch count. we were lucky to be in that position anyway

texasdave

Francisco looks out of shape, I don't remember him looking that overweight here.

texasdave
05-21-2012, 08:54 PM
If you hit it far enough you don't have to run very fast.

The Rage
05-21-2012, 08:54 PM

I am not sure we want him out of the game. Many offenses would have decked him by now.

Leake looks pretty good so far. Even that homerun wasn't a bad pitch.

New York Red

Leake does indeed look over his command issues of earlier. He cannot afford to miss.

New York Red
05-21-2012, 08:56 PM
I'm biased obviously, but IMO Cozart is as good defensively as any shortstop in the league.

Mike Minor in ST: 'I want to be traded if I'm not in the rotation.'

I have a feeling this guy is going to rot in AAA until Teheran is ready.

Catching two HRs in your lifetime would be pretty amazing, but two in one game? That's ridiculous. Sounds like a Reds fan is going to make the highlights for the second straight night.

We really needed this performance we're getting from Leake tonight. What a huge performance from him, not to mention, Stubbs and Cozart tonight. The Bullpen's going to get the needed relief tonight they've "earned". 8 innings from Leake tonight! Let's go Mike.

Can they really afford to waste one of 12 outs left when the pitcher has nothing left in the tank. Didn't see the last three Braves' games, but I'm guessing their bullpen is spent.

OK, he just hit 92 on that Sinker.

He hasn't really pitched that bad this year -- not nearly as bad as his record would indicate. He's pitched several quality games, just hasn't gotten much run support. This is definitely his best effort tonight though. Would be great to see him go a couple more innings.

Leake batting .357 is just amazing. The guy should be pinch-hitting more often.
There's been at least two instances this year were Dusty let a pitcher hit, then immediately pulled him without throwing another pitch. Leake could have pinch-hit both times. There was also an instance when Dusty brought Mes in to pinch-run for Hanigan, when Leake was available to run. When you have an all-around athlete like Leake, why not use him?

WOW nice play.So glad those days are gone of all-glove-no-hit, no-glove-all-hit, and no-glove-no-hit Shortstops. Cozart is no Larkin, but we'll never have another Larkin. Would take 4 or 5 years of Cozart.

Cozart is so smooth at short.

26 pitches that inning. Too many for Leake. Hopefully he can stick to 12 or less next inning. Want him to get to at least a couple batters in the 8th.

ESPN devoting the entire inning to praising Joey Votto. If you didn't already love him, surely you have to by now.

The Reds don't have a perfect offense but it is getting better at producing runs. They do need to cut down on the strikeouts I'll grant you that but it's doing enough to get the job done most days and they get better as the game goes along. It seems the more times through a lineup the better the Reds perform against teams' bullpens.

Stray
05-21-2012, 10:16 PM
I'm glad Bruce got upset with the ump there. He's had that bad inside strike called on him a lot this year.

New York Red
05-21-2012, 10:16 PM

Even worse, some umps change their strike zones in the same at bat. Hernandez threw four straight pitches to Bruce in the exact same spot -- two were called balls and two were called strikes, but none of them were over the plate.

Heisey will be back in the lineup tomorrow I would bet. Ludwick hadn't been in the field for a week so I don't mind him getting the start coming off his good game yesterday. He looks god awful again tonite. He had his once a month game yesterday.
