It would comforting to see a big effort out of Bronson. The Reds are gonna win a ton of games in 2012.

From Hal McCoy's blog last time Reds faced Wandy:

I kinda wish he'd never answer a question from the media.

Can Votto stay insanely hot?

He's looking for one pitch to drive, if he gets it he hits a double or a HR....if he doesn't get his pitch but he's down in the count he hits it where it's pitched for a single....and if they aren't good enough he takes the walk. He is textbook perfect right now....fun to watch

Would love to see Cairo get a couple of hit today...our bench really needs him to get on track.

Game under way. Votto walked and was thrown out stealing to end our half of a scoreless first.

I hope we didn't use up all of our runs yesterday. These no name pitchers always give us a hard time.

Time for Miggy to get jiggy with the bat. Next AB. This one went straight up the chute to the first sacker.

Reds grab the lead.

texasdave
06-03-2012, 03:50 PM
Their pitcher gets an infield single.
Lyle forced at second. Shaefer on first with one out.
Cairo with a nice play to get the lead runner. Two outs and runner still at first.

Ryan Hanigan guns down the would-be stealer to end the mini-threat.

texasdave
06-03-2012, 04:01 PM
Votto singles. Yawn.
Phillips into a tailor-made double play but the throw goes past the first baseman.
One out. Phillips now on first.
Bruce skies to left.
Heisey gives it a ride for naught.

2-1 Reds after 3 1/2.

Phillips shows Arroyo a little more glove. Astros retired.

Justin Verlander is pitching today for the Tigers (and not doing well...getting beat by the Yankees 5-1). Barring rainouts, etc, we should get him Friday night at home.

Second in a row. Once was the Red Sox and once was the Yankees. They bother a lot of pitchers. :)

RedsFanInBama
06-03-2012, 04:17 PM
Yeah, two bad starts in a row for Verlander, but it would be his third straight loss. He pitched well in Cleveland, 2 runs in 8 innings, but lost 2-1.

40YrRedsFan
06-03-2012, 04:18 PM

He threw 114 pitches in 6 plus innings today.
Tigers have had some problems scoring recently (sound familiar?). Verlander is the kind of pitcher who tries to do too much sometimes when the team is doing poorly.

Earth to Jocketty: the timer has gone off on Cairo. You don't have to wait two years like you did with Rolen. He's done.

Reds' sac bunting continues to haunt. Arroyo can't get the bunt down and then grounds into a double play.

RedsFanInBama

Bronson -- that was very bad.

RedsFanInBama
06-03-2012, 04:23 PM
Just a question for you guys as we go through this game. I think everyone feels like our bench is quite a hindrance. What players do we currently have in the system, either on the 40-man or not, that you'd like to see up with the Reds in some capacity? I have to admit I have not kept up with our farm system very much this year.

Reds' farm system doesn't look like much help in 2012.

Line drive single. Tie ballgame. 2-2.

Why is it every team in baseball has a million left handed hitters, and we can only come up with two?

OK, I'll play.

Nobody, as far as I know, thinks everything Baker does is wrong.

But sitting Frazier for Cairo is simply sabotage, IMO.

It's actually one of the main things that he's been criticized for in his time with SF and Chicago.

texasdave

Yes, the manager is intentionally attempting to lose the game. That's a valid opinion.

Infield hit Stubbs. Rally brewing.

06-03-2012, 04:40 PM

They didn't start winning until Rolen pulled himself out of the starting lineup and onto the DL.

A blind man could see that it needed to happen, but Baker wouldn't do it.

So, yeah. Sabotage by any other name.

texasdave
06-03-2012, 04:41 PM
Some guy named Votto is up for Cincinnati. Is he any good? Joey was 19 for his last 31. Wow.

texasdave

Stubbs pilfers second to move into scoring position.
DatDude walks.

I see Bruce leaving the park to make it 5-3.

texasdave

Marty getting on Bruce. Who just happens to lead the team in RBIs.
High fly to left-center. That won't work.

The Astros brought Lyles up from the minors to pitch today. Why can't we hit these mediocre pitchers? After scoring 12 yesterday, we won't score more than 2 for another week.

Physically he might be 100% but as an athlete coming off of an injury can linger in the back of your head. I have no problem with Phillips not going Bryce Harper psycho there, don't think it would have been as close as you think.

Stubbs fanning with 1st and 3rd and a 2-0 count....yikes that was awful but glad to some emotion from him.

Justin Maxwell......did that ball ever land? Good God what a bomb.

It would be nice to take 2 outta 3 from Pittsburgh this week. We'll miss McDonald since he went today, and we'll be running Cueto and Bailey out this series....I like our chances.
