Re: 3-25-11 ST Reds v Padres
Top of 5th. Reds lead 3-2
Hawpe grounds out to Votto on 1 pitch.
Ludwick with a dinger to left. No doubt. 3-3.
Salazar with a shot against the top of the RF wall. Double. Nearly gone. Sheesh. This is nearly batting practice for the Friars.
Tekotte pinch running for Salazar.
Johnson grounds to short. Tekotte holds at 2nd.
Cabrera grounds out to Phillips on a great backhanded snag by the gold glover to end the inning.
Thus far, it's more of the same from Edinson. He's consistently falling behind hitters 2-0, 3-1 and 3-0. Then when he's got to groove one, the Pads are POUNCING on them. Nearly every hit has been absolutely stung. I know he's behind schedule due to the visa issue, but if his control doesn't improve...QUICKLY, I'd really have to consider taking him out of the rotation for the start of the season and give him the time he so obviously needs.
Pitching and defense...anything else is gravy. Mmmm...gravy.
