Do you think it is possible that after nearly two years of Drew "Strike Out Force" Stubbs in center that the Reds' coaching staff/management is finally coming to the realization that he just is not going to hit enough to justify running him out there on a daily basis? No one is saying Heisey is an All-Star or the long-term answer but he is definitely better than Stubbs.

Yeah, but it may be in a elimination game. Bailey means alot, especially if we make it to the NLCS. One bad start can ruin the whole bunch. That includes Latos and Cueto as well.

Which is why it is dumb to start on the road. Bud Selig dumb. And that is pretty freaking dumb. And the explanation for why they are doing it is even dumber. One more day added to the playoffs is going to make some kind of difference? Please. Bud Selig dumb.

Heisey squared that one up but right at the center fielder.

Ironman92
09-26-2012, 09:27 PM
Surprised Heisey did not dive for that one.

How much would you bet that someone important in making decisions told him to hold back on some of those because you just can't let those by you.....that being said he kinda looked in between steps to dive, sounds weird but it looked strange.

I still want him diving if he has a chance.

I wonder if Speier has tinkered with his approach.....he's been way more patient the past couple appearances.

Maybe he was in between steps. It looked divable to me. If that makes any sense.

They hit some rockets that inning

Ironman92
09-26-2012, 09:33 PM
I'm not sure he had to dive to catch that ball...but I think he had to dive because he was running so fast he was about to go down anyways.

That 84 mph down the middle nothing pitch should have been hit about 425 feet by Votto.
Sometimes you need a 3 run homer from your 20 million dollar man, but he's up there looking for a walk...

Ironman92
09-26-2012, 10:05 PM
His change up is solid. Our correct guesses have produced some hard hit balls (Votto, Phillips, Heisey, Rolen, Paul)....but little to show for it.

Bruce has looked awful.

The Rage
09-26-2012, 10:07 PM
I guess Bruce is back in his slump

Falcon7
09-26-2012, 10:09 PM

It's his left leg that's hurt, the front leg takes mostly all the stress.

Maker_84
09-26-2012, 10:11 PM
major fail by reds pitching today but lately whenever the reds are losing by more than 2 runs after the 5th or 6th our managers put in the worst relievers this team has because they know this offense is incapable of making a come from behind win

Spider Tre
09-26-2012, 10:11 PM
it was only a matter of time before Braun roided one out
