Has any body brought up the possibility of walking Arias (after the passed ball) to get romo out of game. Also Giants only had one pinch hitter left.

Veterans FTW! I mean, it's not like Frazier would be a better all-around option than Rolen, right?

Don't agree. Can debate the relative merits on defense. But Frazier is the way better bet from the plate. And he has yet to peak as a fielder.

I'm a fan of Scott Rolen. He's done a lot for the Reds. I wouldn't knock him. But I do question Dusty's tenacity at keeping him in the lineup.

How did they accomplish all they did when JoVo was out? Frazier was a huge part of that. He deserves the opportunity. And, good folks will disagree but, in my humble opinion (and more importantly), we're at the point now where Frazier gives us the better chance to win.

Your sarcasm detector must be turned off.

Yeah--that's what happens when I have steam coming out of my ears. Thanks for the reality check. :thumbup:

Sure the 400 million the owner has spent on players had nothing to do with it

Rolen is the only reason this team can win

Heck just look at his numbers over the last two season

.244 AVG
57 Runs
13 HR
75 RBI

OVER TWO SEASONS

Yep he has been nothing but golden

Haha this:beerme:

After all the fuss we made about the playoff setup, returning home to Great American Bandbox may have been the worst thing to happen. Not that the ball was jumping out of there, but the entire lineup COMPLETELY changed the approach that was so successful in San Francisco. Didn't hit a line drive all night. I lost track after about 8 or 9 can o' corns.

What a wasted opportunity. I don't think I've ever seen the Reds get beat on less than what the Giants mustered tonight.

I have to go drown some serious sorrows. See you all tomorrow--hopefully--assuming Game 4 isn't at 1pm ET or overlapping stupidly with Cards at Nats.

We will win this series. Of that, I'm 100% certain.

I coach basketball & often times we tell our players not to blame a mistake at the end of a game as the sole reason for the loss. Mistakes made earlier in the game have just as much impact on outcome, like Phillips risky play to try & get to 3rd.

Rolen has done a lot behind the scenes to help this club get back to championship baseball. Statistics aren't everything & his presence in the clubhouse & his effect on Votto, Bruce, & othere can't go unnoticed. Not to knock Jr or Dunn but until Rolen got here this team didn't come to the ballpark expecting to win everyday. Now they do.

Solid point sir.

Thanks, that was going through my mind. Not trying to second guess but Didn't look like they were comfortable against Romo

I was screaming for a walk in my seat. Seemed perfect. I also thought they were out of PH, but hey.

Sigh.

What did Frazier hit in September?
Rolen is better defensively

I doubt Bochey would've used Romo if the bases were loaded...i mean Lincecum was warming up in the bullpen during the 10th so..

I agree it would have brought up Sanchez. I read where Sanchez was 4-7 withbases loaded this year so after reading that I can see why they decided to pitch to Arias.

I think tomorrow might very well decide the future of Leake with this ball club. We must not allow the Giants to build confidence early in game 4.
