After the inside the parker, I wondered if there would be a spot far enough down the bench to punish Heisey.

It'd be nice to go ahead and win the series tonight. Last night's win was huge, guarantees that we'll at worst lose 1 game in the standings.

Is there anyone here that thought for even one second in a huge game (where you dont want to give the other team any kind of momentum) that Chapman was throwing at McCutchen to send a message? After reading the Pittsburgh papers and some of their message boards they are convinced that the Reds did it on purpose and will be upset if the Pirates are not out for blood tonight. McCutchen's reaction in the dugout and in the locker room after the game, to me, showed a total lack of professionalism. There is no way that Chapman was throwing at him and to demand retaliation is completely uncalled for. Just understand the situation at the time did not indicate any intention and take your base.

Cuch's reaction in the locker room?All I read on Reds.com was him saying they would just use that to fire them up for today's game.Did not complain about being plunked at all.

By refusing to talk about being hit and making it known he was not wanting to discuss it he drew even more attention to it and implied he was angry and upset about being thrown at.

All you have to do is watch Chapman for a while. He loses control of the ball now and then and has thrown several to the backstop. He is wild at times. There is no way he was throwing at McCutcheon, especially in that situation late in the game.

Will Dusty have Leake on a short leash tonight? If Leake gets pounded, do you let him take it and save the bullpen, knowing you have tomorrow's game to win the series, or do you use everyone available to get tonight's game?

He was quite jumpy on that inside pitch.

Besides, a 100 mph pitch may seem 20 times faster than a 90mph pitch, but the hurt equally.

RedsFanInBama
08-04-2012, 07:19 PM
Navarro might kill it for a few games, but his career numbers pretty much guarantee that he'll be unable to sustain anything. Can't let him take Mes' spot when he comes back if you're serious about developing him as your catcher for the future.

Maker_84

The jinxing is silly.....Welsh and Brantley used to be way more (say what they think).....I believe Owner Bob (world's nicest man) put a nix on it, they bother me more now gushing over the players when they make a mistake. Just call it as is and be a little bit of a homer.

Wind-blown HR. I mean bad wind blown.
2 groundouts.
Harrison hit by 2-seam fastball in thigh (on third pitch of AB)
---Harrison stares down Leake. Leake puts arms up, walks towards him, I assume telling him to get his ass to first base and shut up. Benches are warned, Hurdle comes out to argue, gets tossed.
Leake strikes out McDonald.

2-1 Reds.

I didn't say that. But there was a time when he would have hauled that thing in. He's not playing a good RF this year.

Eh, not sure about that. The ball was a semi-liner so Bruce didn't have a chance to get back to the wall and time it.

Red Raindog
08-04-2012, 07:55 PM
well he made a good catch of the liner that followed --- sometime I think he is better coming in than going back

What has happened to Jay Bruce defensively???

Maybe he too is trying to kick the habit of chewing tobacco.

Good grab there, though. Too bad he put a guy at 3rd and it led to a run.

Leake just stinks at home. Solid on the road, though.

Leake not able to hit the corners...too many balls in the middle of the plate

rolenmvp

Good job leake to battle back!

BluegrassRedleg
08-04-2012, 08:01 PM
They said on radio (I think I have this correct) that Leake's home ERA is the worst of any starter in the NL right now, over 6.00. I did not realize that. He's got to start hitting his spots much better and changing speeds if he's going to be part of the playoff picture.

Stray
08-04-2012, 08:02 PM
Is it just me or is Leake not throwing his curve ball anymore? Or am I crazy in thinking he ever had one?

rolenmvp
08-04-2012, 08:02 PM
1 down.

RedsFanInBama
08-04-2012, 08:02 PM
I'd say unless something changes Leake will definitely be the odd man out come playoff time.

Well, after taking 23 pitches to get through the first inning, McDonald has now recorded the last four outs on 8 total pitches.
