Off days, although one day, make it seem like the team goes a week between games. Talking about them during that time on these forums only makes it longer.

win-hungry Reds roll through this one. 9-2 Leake pitches 7 innings.

Astros line-up for tonight:

Schafer CF
Altuve 2B
Lowrie SS
Lee 1B
Johnson 3B
Bogusevic RF
Martinez LF
Snyder C
Happ P

Phillips (2.139 OPS) and Votto (.962 OPS) have had some success against Happ in small sample sizes, while Bruce is hitless against him in six ABs. OTOH, Johnson has a 1.694 OPS against Leake for his career.

Ludwick does hit a lot of fly balls to left and the Crawford Boxes are about 20 feet behind shortstop.

Heisey is the hottest hitter on the team and he has the third highest batting average. Dusty Baker's loyalty to suck is amazing. I know, we gotta get Ludwick some bats so he gets out of his season long slump. Sit Drew Stubbs for crying out loud.

You play to win the game - Herm Edwards

You play to make friends - Dusty Baker

It is a hot Houston day, but cooling temperatures should prevail in the evening. I predict the Reds to struggle for runs tonight, blow out the Stros on Saturday and fight in a close one on Sunday.

Predictions:
Friday: loss 2-5
Saturday: win 7-2
Sunday: win 6-4

I agree the team is going to have to find the proper mix of pitching and batting to make a playoff run. I'm willing to admit the teams margin for error is more thin than other playoff teams but that's okay. If the bats get hot at the right time the sky is the limit. Lets all pray when we make the playoffs those bats wake up and stay awake. Could be something special.

Then you have the 2002 Angels and 2011 Cardinals. It was hitting that propelled them. There is no magic bullet. The Phillies loaded up on pitching and have not won a title since.

How many of you still want Carlos Lee?

He rips a double that Luddy had to go about 20 steps to get.....held to a single....later in the inning he's leading off 3rd and a broken bat nothing ball goes to Votto....Votto took 4 1/2 seconds from contact to get the ball home....he couldn't come close to running 80 feet in 4.5 seconds? Lol

He then hits into a DP and he pulls a hammy taking 5.0 to get to first.

Only 4 HR? A complete clog.

I was making a little joke. See when Giamatti busted Pete after he became commissioner he said he was "restoring Integrity" to the game, and a bunch of morons cheered him for that. Then when he smoked himself to death these same folks were ready to put him in the HOf. So when someone mentioned 1988 when Giamatti was NL president I said ..... ah forget it, you had to be there.

AS I recall that's why game six of the 86 playoffs, the extra inning game, was so do or die for the Mets- they knew if they lost they would have to face Scott in game 7.

That was the feeling down here in Houston. Game six was for all the marbles. You never know. But you had to like Scott's chances if there was a game seven.

According to MLB that was the 5th greatest game of all time. And 10 days later the Mets played in the 3rd greatest game of all time. Those 8os Mets were underachievers but they were fun to watch.
