Are they auditioning Paul or is something wrong with Ludwick?

Nevermind. An extra day off for the sore groin.

Great to see Paul getting another start! However, who are these people? Phillips? Votto? Rolen? Guess they're trying to give the new guys a shot.

Friday night after a road trip, and Arroyo starting. I had Friday night season tickets (13 games) last year, and saw this exact scenario more times than seemed mathematically possible. It usually ended in disappointment. I'm keeping my excitement tempered.

Plus, I have tickets for tomorrow night. :)

If he's not there, they shouldn't celebrate until he's back.

He is hitting .195 this season in the leadoff slot

leadoff spot is a graveyard for Reds hitters which is why they should have gone after Juan Pierre

We couldn't score yesterday off a guy that had a 7.00 ERA, now we get Blanton with an ERA just under 5.00, and so far, a total of 9 innings and we have 3 hits......not gonna work in the post season.

votto foul popped out to 3rd

That is the 1st time all season he has foul pop up




He did it once last season too

Stray

It feels like RH pitchers have been throwing to the outside corner on us for months, and we've yet to hit it.

Yup, it is amazing at times. This offense must be upgraded in the offseason if they want to repeat a playoff run.

We can't depend on coming back late in games in the playoffs against good teams like we have against the Cubs, Astros, Mets, etc. Facing a Kimbrel or the like in the playoffs could mean lights out.

Stray
09-21-2012, 08:27 PM
Phillips has had a couple of good swings tonight with nothing to show for it. Good sign after that road trip where he wasn't making good contact ever.

right, but the same could be said for teams getting behind on our bullpen but i fear we may not have a lead often due to the worst offense of all the playoff teams

True, but taking into account the parks, we have the best pitching.

I'll take pitching over hitting.

Will Bruce K against this lefty?

I guess this is what you call overmanaging lol. When was the last time a different reliever was brought in just for Stubbs?

40YrRedsFan

Pirates losing 3-0 to the Astros.......the streak looks like it will be 20 years in a row with a below .500 record.

09-21-2012, 08:56 PM
Odds of Stubbs striking out here? 4 out of 5

Free baseball.

So we can get a great Marty call and clinch in style.

Also, the Brewers just had a 9th inning rally? Those guys are out of their mind at the moment.

Cmon Marshall

BOOM, had a feeling the Dodgers would finally end this game. Lack of any offense destroys this team

Stray
09-21-2012, 10:22 PM
You can't throw that pitch when you have him 0-2. Righty or not, just a bad pitch in that situation.

NeilHamburger
09-21-2012, 10:24 PM
Problem is this offense will face better pitching then even the great Joe Blanton in the playoffs. They've got to get this offense going or it will be one and done again.

jhiller21
09-21-2012, 10:24 PM
I can't believe Marshall threw a fastball right down the can on 0-2, especially to Kemp

If that happens then the Reds are just a regular season team that piles up wins there but doesn't come through when it matters

40YrRedsFan
09-21-2012, 10:27 PM
We face another no name pitcher tomorrow. This team has been offensively dead for the month of Sept. Not a good sign going into the playoffs.

a HR will make up for it all

We can rag on Stubbs/Valdez/Cairo and whoever else, it's the big guys that aren't doing anything at the moment.
