Reinforcements on the way.


Today the Reds returned from a rehabilitation assignment and reinstated from the 15-day disabled list 1B Joey Votto, recalled from Louisville RHP Todd Redmond and RHP Pedro Villarreal (#65) and selected from Pensacola the contract of LHP Tony Cingrani (#70).

Stubbs is HR due and Valdez will get on a couple times....it's all good. It's our year.

Let's take these next two and have a winning record against the Phillies. Whether he plays or not, it'll be great to see Votto wearing a Red uniform again.

Possibly....but Dusty obviously wants to win and Pierre doesn't play CF anymore....plus he put Patterson and Taveras out there with the same stuff.

KYLE Kendrick has done very well recently. He has probably outpitched Halladay and Lee in the last month or so.
Phils have the 2nd best ERA in NL since the AS break.

Someone really needs to photoshop this picture and place "Stubbs" in the place of all the names on the first dice...on the second dice I would place "CF", "Strikeout", "Bat 2nd".....

Start number 100 for Latos. Rollins one hit shy of 2,000.

texasdave

Rollins retired on a semi-deep can of corn to right-centerfield.

2b grounds out to 2b. 1-2-3 first for Latos. 12 pitches. Nice.

Leadoff walk to Stubbs. Run, Drew, Run.

texasdave

Valdez, flashing his power, grounds all the way out to short. Stubbs forced.

Can't run if the hitter doesn't give you a chance. Fundamentals and baseball knowledge missing from many of our players.

texasdave
09-04-2012, 07:22 PM
When Valdez gets his pitch he has to let that bat rip.

texasdave

Valdez out but stands on second. Frandsen with a nice bare-handed grab and fire to first. Two outs, Valdez on third.

texasdave
09-04-2012, 07:26 PM
F-7. Inning over.

texasdave
09-04-2012, 07:27 PM
It has been so long since Valdez reached second that he wasn't quite sure where it was located. That resulted in an overslide.

texasdave
09-04-2012, 07:30 PM
Ryan Howard was 0-8 lifetime against Latos, with 8 Ks. Oops. He lines a single to right.

texasdave
09-04-2012, 07:31 PM
Wilson Valdez is OPSing .446. That number would rank him 31st in the NL in Slugging. Yikes.

Latos up with a lot of pitches.....he better get it down

texasdave

so yeah, anytime we want to start hitting would be nice

The Rage
09-04-2012, 07:55 PM
Excellent third for Mat.

Hopefully it doesn't turn Cuetoian from yesterday, which was a philosophical school traced to the Baileyian school of pitching.

Whew!!!

It always sounded like some country song

texasdave

Stubbs with a single to second. First and second.

Stray
09-04-2012, 07:59 PM
Maybe they got his music mixed up with Latos. I thought I heard Latos say he was a techno guy.

MrRedLegger
09-04-2012, 08:00 PM
just thought it was funny. He's definitely a country boy

The Rage
09-04-2012, 08:00 PM
What is Stubbs doing?

Stray
09-04-2012, 08:03 PM
Did Utley think there were 2 outs?

texasdave
09-04-2012, 08:03 PM
Valdez doesn't hit the ball hard enough to get a double play. So that is always a plus. Sub-Mendoza now.

MrRedLegger
09-04-2012, 08:04 PM
base hit. base hit. base hit.

Stray
09-04-2012, 08:04 PM
Valdez doesn't hit the ball hard enough to get a double play. So that is always a plus. Sub-Mendoza now.

I was thinking that. He'd have to ground out to the catcher to hit into a DP...which he almost did lol.

texasdave
09-04-2012, 08:05 PM
Boneheaded baserunning. Geez. Why would Latos be wandering far enough off third with two outs to enable him to get picked off? This catcher has a gun. He nearly got Valdez at second from his knees.

Stray
09-04-2012, 08:06 PM
Didn't look like they caught him napping...must have had that play on thinking he was wondering down the line too far.

texasdave
09-04-2012, 08:06 PM
Didn't look like they caught him napping...must have had that play on thinking he was wondering down the line too far.

Why is he wandering down the line though? Two outs. He is gonna score on any kind of a hit.

I agree it was a stupid play.

texasdave
09-04-2012, 08:09 PM
Latos gets revenge. Retires Frandsen on a pop to Frazier.

Stray
09-04-2012, 08:09 PM
Bad inning all around. If we get the sacrifice down Latos isn't running the bases, Hanigan might have scored on Stubbs' single and who knows what else.

texasdave
09-04-2012, 08:10 PM
Does anyone hit the ball as consistently weakly as Valdez?

Stray
09-04-2012, 08:11 PM
Only one that comes to mind is Janish but I think he had more OF power than Valdez does.

texasdave
09-04-2012, 08:11 PM
Utley thought he had a walk.

texasdave
09-04-2012, 08:12 PM
Now I kinda wished he had walked. LOL.

texasdave
09-04-2012, 08:13 PM
Howard nipped. First and second.

texasdave
09-04-2012, 08:16 PM
He went around. That is bullcrap.

of the norm where we have to come from behind.

what the heck just happened??

texasdave
09-04-2012, 08:23 PM
The ball bounced so everybody was forced out. I think. I could be wrong.

Stray
09-04-2012, 08:23 PM
That was a heads up play by Stubbs, but if he got the force at 2nd where was the 3rd out? Should be 1st and 3rd with 2 outs...right?

Krawhitham
09-04-2012, 08:23 PM

there was 1 out already before the play

Stray
09-04-2012, 08:24 PM
there was one out before the play

I know but the force at 2nd was the only out on that play right?

Who Dey Time
09-04-2012, 08:24 PM
I think they called a catch then a double up at 2nd base. He didn't catch that IMO, but still a heads up play.

texasdave
09-04-2012, 08:24 PM

We will find out in a minute or two. Strange play. But good for the Reds.

Krawhitham
09-04-2012, 08:24 PM
The threw it to 2nd and got the force, then threw it home and never tagged anyone

Maker_84
09-04-2012, 08:25 PM
wow this is gonna be one of, if not the most wackiest plays in all of baseball this season

Stray
09-04-2012, 08:25 PM
Hanigan never touched home. There was only 1 out on that play that I saw lol.

Stray
09-04-2012, 08:25 PM
They called that a catch LOL

texasdave
09-04-2012, 08:26 PM
That clearly was no catch. I saw that in real time.

Krawhitham
09-04-2012, 08:26 PM
home is not a force out after the out at 2nd, so it does not matter if he touched home

texasdave
09-04-2012, 08:26 PM
If it was a catch then they have to tag someone. Phillips tug second but not the runner. Right?

Maker_84
09-04-2012, 08:27 PM
i mean ill take it lol, but the Reds inept offense needs to do something to advantage of this

Stray
09-04-2012, 08:27 PM
home is not a force out after the out at 2nd, so it does not matter if he touched home

That's what I was thinking. Should have been 1st and 3rd with 2 outs.

I'll take it tho.

09-04-2012, 08:27 PM
But doesnt the force out at second take away a force out at home?

texasdave
09-04-2012, 08:27 PM

If it was a catch then there is no force at second. Oh, okay I see. When Phillips touches second they get the runner that was off second. Not a force.

FlyingPig
09-04-2012, 08:28 PM
If it was a catch then there is no force at second.

Obviously the ump called it a catch. Even though it wasnt a catch.

Krawhitham
09-04-2012, 08:29 PM
The umps seems to be claiming Stubbs caught out #2, and the runner at 2nd did not get back bag and was forced for out #3.

I thought traps were reviewable now?

texasdave
09-04-2012, 08:29 PM
Strange play indeed.

dubc47834
09-04-2012, 08:30 PM
It was a catch...then they got the "force" at second because the runner never tagged up. If he hadnt of caught it they woulda had the force at second and nothing else.

texasdave
09-04-2012, 08:34 PM
This says traps are now reviewable. I believe I saw a game where they replayed a trap.



8. Replay will get calls right, but be cumbersome. MLB's decision to expand replay to more calls is well-intentioned -- trap plays and fair/foul calls will now be reviewable.

I understand that we have to get Valdez in the lineup every now and then. I don't understand why he has to hit second?? I don't understand why you would put your worst hitter in the 2 hole. come one dusty! good job this year though
