Too bad Rolen isn't healthy. He vs. Moyer would have been a classic battle 13 years ago.
Another day where Dusty insists Heisey's isn't a good matchup or his swing doesn't fit the pitcher. I wouldn't complain but he never does that with anyone else.
Seriously has Dusty not had 50 or so times last year and 20 times this year where Dusty could say the same about Stubbs.
I'm sorry to draw any negative to this time of the Reds playing well....but Heisey has been key in this Reds good spell and playing plenty well with kinda regular playing time....he has 3 RBI and gets on base 3 times and sits.....just idiotic IMO.
Dont worry. Dusty should be gone after the season
Be patient with Moyer. This guy talked on air for 10 minutes yesterday about pitching being a chess match...Dustyball could let him go 7 2/3.....he better not get past 5 innings. What pitcher would be easier to work and foul off his pitches with 2 strikes? Few will get hittable first pitch strikes...patience is key IMO and getting something out of your first AB will be key in knocking him out the 2nd time through.
We'll see....I say we win 10-5 or lose 5-3.
This game is the free game of the day on MLBtv.com.
I like this lineup. Looks like a winner to me.
My Dad is there roasting in the Sun Deck...warm!
I'm in my 70 degree house....hopefully Dad enjoys it more.
Give me a 12-pitch first inning here, Latos!
So much for that wish I guess. Young may get to 12 by himself.
I really hate these rocky hitters and how pesky they are. Latos has to go a long way today because the bullpen is shot
9 pitches....advantage Rockies
12 pitches....2 outs
14. Not bad at all.
