Re: Who's going tonight?
So.... I take my wife and daughter to the game. PERFECT weather. Seriously, could it have been any better? Pettite looked really strong. Talk about changing speeds and hitter's eye level. He did get into some jams but seemed unfazed as he came out of them like he was just teasing the Reds.
Arroyo had a decent outing. He only pitches effectively if he works quickly. He bounced back after the dingers and kept the ball down. Good job by the Astros reading their scouting report. They had Arroyo down to the pitch. Did not seem to matter much though when Arroyo quit flipping curve after curve in. Just keep the Reds in the game Bronson.
We had to leve early as my daughter is starting school. I told my wife as we were leaving that "I am committing a sin by leaving you know..." She didn't care. As soon as we got home the big inning started. If I go to the game tomorrow or Wed and the Reds are behind. I will leave in order to give them a shot!
Anyone going tomorrow? Not sure if I can call and get seats but I'd like to go.
How about CB Bucknor tonight??? Wow. I know I saw at least 15-20 strikes called a ball and vice versa this eve. No surprise. Quest Tec anyone?
It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...
