Positives: Simon looked a little better. Harris got a hit as did Ludwick. Votto is still awesome.
Negatives: Too many to list here. Shorthand version- CF, 3B and bench.
Well, just last Sunday Dusty got RIPPED for not having someone ready in the bullpen when Arroyo melted down in the 65-75 pitch range. That's the stuff I was talking about in yesterday's game thread. Doesn't matter what move he makes. I just have to accept that if I'm gonna hang out.
I don't get Chapman in the 10th and not in the 8th. But then I just got home for the last two innings.
The offense is very, very hard to watch when it is slumping. I know they will score runs, but man its brutal to watch a team wide slump. I only got to see 2 innings of hacking, but man, the last guy, who has now struck out what, 6 in a row. Those were all balls, every last curve was not in the zone. They hacked away.
