It's one of those lineups you could bat in reverse order and not change the outcome.

Stray
06-24-2012, 01:03 PM
Votto has been quiet for too long, even though quiet for him could translate to career years for most guys. I think he'll have a monster game today. Oh and the ball should be flying at GABP, not sure if that's good news or bad.

Big opportunity squandered as Bruce pops out with the bases loaded. At least we're winning 1-0.

FloridaBuckeye
06-24-2012, 01:54 PM
Imagine that... Bruce flies out with bases full

RedsFanInBama
06-24-2012, 01:56 PM
It's gotten to the point the last few weeks that Valdez is actually one of the players I like seeing at the plate with runners in scoring position. Right now if it's him or Bruce, I'd much rather see Valdez.

As long as you're talkin baseball I'm sure it's all good. There were some threads where people got personal so I can see why they wanna get rid of that nonsense.

Do they get paid to be mods?

I must admit though, Leake has certainly improved since the start of the year

Yeah I get that, it's just frustrating that you ask a valid question and my thread gets deleted. Oh well, it is what it is. I'm not a poster who is always negative or taking shots at people, so I doubt I have many issues.

Stray
06-24-2012, 02:15 PM
Leake will get a rally going

There is a first-pitch double play to put on the pile.

RedsFanInBama
06-24-2012, 02:18 PM
Heisey has seen 4 pitches and made 3 outs.

Was about to post the same thing.

And there's a double play by Valdez. This offense is either feast or famine.

Juan Francisco with a marathon at-bat just now against the BoSox - 3 pitches.

Leake 52 pitches through five innings. Diamond at 53 pitches.

I have never heard of Plouffe before and he has 15 dingers.

06-24-2012, 02:22 PM
That homerun wasn't even a bad pitch, Leake has it going today.

Stray
06-24-2012, 02:24 PM
Oh come on that was strike 3

Stray
06-24-2012, 02:25 PM
Nice call from the dugout there

Hamilton with four more SB last night apparently - up to 87 for the year. Wow. I suspect he'll be in Double-A by the end of July.

Stray
06-24-2012, 02:26 PM
Yea 87 sbs and I don't think they've played 70 games yet. That guy is unreal.

Only bad thing is if Hamilton gets to Pensacola this year, they've already made their trip to Birmingham.

Joey, taking too many pitches.
No clutch Jay gets a bases empty 2 out single.
That was really stupid!!! Out by 40 feet!

Stray
06-24-2012, 02:32 PM
Not the best decision Berry has ever made.

RedsFanInBama
06-24-2012, 02:32 PM
Get outta here George. The shortstop could have taken his glove off and thrown the ball to home left-handed and he would have had Bruce.

Honestly, the shortstop had that ball in his hand as the relay man before Bruce hit third base.

texasdave
06-24-2012, 02:33 PM
I don't believe I have ever seen a runner out by more at the plate.

RedsFanInBama

LOL. George and Cowboy shilling for Berry like crazy. It was horrible, guys. Just call a spade a spade.

2-1 Twins. Brandon does save a run -- at least temporarily -- with a nice diving play.

RedsFanInBama
06-24-2012, 02:38 PM
Holy Cow!! What a play!

texasdave
06-24-2012, 02:38 PM

06-24-2012, 02:38 PM
Wow. What a great play!

texasdave
06-24-2012, 02:38 PM
Perfection on that play.

RedsFanInBama
06-24-2012, 02:39 PM
Phillips single-handedly saved us that run on two different occasions.

Stray
06-24-2012, 02:39 PM
Would have been a really big inning if not for him.

texasdave
06-24-2012, 02:40 PM
Is defense important? Yeah. I think so.

Falcon7
06-24-2012, 02:41 PM
Perfection on that play.

Sure was! Leake with an assist.

But will we score a couple??

texasdave
06-24-2012, 02:43 PM
Reds face Gallardo and Greinke in the next series. And then out to the West Coast.

06-24-2012, 02:45 PM
2 hit day for Mes

RedsFanInBama
06-24-2012, 02:45 PM
Mistake pitch by Diamond there - nice two-strike hit by Mes.

RedsFanInBama

Haha. How did that happen?

Now knock him in, MIke.

texasdave
06-24-2012, 02:46 PM
One of the slowest stolen bases in history.

Stray
06-24-2012, 02:47 PM
A long tough fought at bat incoming, 3 pitches.

texasdave
06-24-2012, 02:48 PM
Heisey going deep here? We know he is swinging. As long as the last pitch he sees ends up in the seats.

Stray
06-24-2012, 02:48 PM
Quick - how many pitches will Heisey see this AB? I'm goin 2.

good call

texasdave
06-24-2012, 02:48 PM
Nope.

Falcon7
06-24-2012, 02:48 PM
Leake was standing on the plate right after the swing, if the catcher throws the ball, interference likely would have been called.

RedsFanInBama
06-24-2012, 02:49 PM
Heisey has had an awful, awful day at the plate. Of course, I guess just about all the Reds have in reality.

texasdave
06-24-2012, 02:49 PM
This has to be one of baseball's unwritten rules. On getaway day both teams have to swing at everything. Pathetic baseball.

Stray
06-24-2012, 02:49 PM
Votto cannot have another terrible at bat. We'll get a run next inning.

texasdave
06-24-2012, 02:50 PM
Through seven innings. Diamond 70 pitches. Leake 74 pitches.

Lol poor guy. it was a fine pitch.

You could prolly leave Leake in go the distance if you wanted.

Falcon7
06-24-2012, 03:04 PM
Well Jay had good hang time on that ball.

texasdave
06-24-2012, 03:04 PM
Leake or Chapman?

Who Dey Time

Dozier is a very nice SS.

Stray
06-24-2012, 03:05 PM
If it were me I'd leave Leake in to finish it out. I don't have an issue either way we go though.

RedsFanInBama
06-24-2012, 03:05 PM
I'm all for Chapman if he wants to mix in a slider every now and then.

texasdave

Pirates down 2-0 and Verlander is cruising. Nice.

Give him the slider now.

BluegrassRedleg
06-24-2012, 03:11 PM
Well, it certainly looks like a little rest helped get the velocity back.

Stray
06-24-2012, 03:11 PM
If he's fouling that pitch off he can't hit the slider.

RedsFanInBama
06-24-2012, 03:12 PM

Mauer swung and missed at one pitch - the slider in the zone. Problem was Chapman couldn't find the zone with any of the others he threw.

Willingham would look good in a Reds' uniform.

Stray
06-24-2012, 03:18 PM
I don't know if he's hurt or what, but like someone else said, he can't throw strikes with his slider. If you let those guys time up your fastball they're gonna crush it eventually.

RedsFanInBama
06-24-2012, 03:18 PM
God won't let the Reds have a great pitcher. Was too good to be true.

There's never been a great MLB pitcher that could dominate hitters on one pitch that didn't move.

There won't be.

By the way, Chapman is closing in on Cordero's blown save number from last year awfully quickly.

Stray

Gotta find someone who can close games. This is Chapman's 4th blown save already I believe.

Going to face Burton in the ninth, let's get Chapman the victory

Stray

Frazier-Mes-and then probably Rolen

need a run.

When he couldn't throw strikes, he started throwing slower, and then he's very ordinary with a mid 90's stick straight fastball down the middle.

Very disappointing after the way Leake pitched today. Also would suck to drop 5 of 6 with a long road trip on the horizon.

Closer is now an issue, 4 blown saves is more than a lot of closers have in an entire season

Stray
06-24-2012, 03:24 PM
We got some question marks that's for sure. We also have a lot of capable arms in our pen. Simon, Arredondo, and Ondrusek...they've all been good.

Rolen is the hitter

Hard to believe Rolen only has 18 career pinch-hit ABs.

Anything but a double play, I like Valdez's chances to get a hit.

He walks a guy, then you swing at the first pitch. Heisey has seen a grand total of about 7 pitches in 5 at-bats.

Walk Valdez and give Joey a chance.

if he got that down he coulda walked to 1st

Valdez has used up his hits for the day (or a week). It's not gonna happen.

Another defeat snatched from the jaws of victory. That's about the third time in the past week. Gotta do something about Chapman. He's been scuffling for about three weeks now.

Stray
06-24-2012, 03:33 PM
We got some bullpen issues guys.

There are worse problems to have, we have good pitchers out there if we have to switch things up.

Losing a series to the Twins hurts real bad, so glad inter league is over

And I know a lotta people love the guy, but Heisey didn't do himself any favors while Stubbs was on the DL.

Should have left Leake in.
Then should have walked Willingham and set up the lefty, lefty matchup.

At least it takes three pitches to strike out.

Heisey has gone from a slugger to slap hitter in one season, alarmingly drastic dropoff of power

Stray
06-24-2012, 03:37 PM
Stubbs does strike out a lot, but he also scores a lot of runs. He makes the best out of the times that he gets on. Obviously that says a lot about the guys behind him, but it just seems like Heisey hasn't really been making anything happen.

Should have left Leake in.
Then should have walked Willingham and set up the lefty, lefty matchup.

Both points are fine in hindsight, I guess. The first point is more valid, but you just don't walk the go-ahead run intentionally. It's just not done unless it's Barry Bonds or Pujols in their prime, or maybe Votto now. Besides, a lefty had just doubled.
