    Calling into question a player's intelligence is excessive, especially since there's no way anyone can back up such remarks. How can you argue with "his baseball IQ is 53."

    That's just a cheap shot. There's nothing anyone can say to that. It's a gratuitous slam that has no place here IMHO.

    At least a person can use stats to show someone isn't getting the job done. But you can't discuss some made up baseball IQ number when a player is getting ripped on.

    He's probably not. This is his M.O. on every board he posts. He constantly uses every situation to rip on a team and when things are going well, he goes silent.

    LeCure runs the FB back over the inside edge.

    You knew it was coming. Pierre didn't.

    Grrr ... I thought it was a night game. I hate when that happens. I just got home. Usually when I jump in a game thread late in an undecided game, we win. Hopefully that magic works again today. I see Joey has his stick working. I said last night when he got that last AB bloop single it might light a fire under him. Maybe that's happening.

    If there are 3 borderline calls I think the home team should at least get 1 if not 2, but the umps are doing their best, nothing questionable going on.

    I get what you're saying I just think it feels like Heisey does a lot of popping the ball up in big spots and really tends to swing first pitch and do nothing in spots like that. That being said I hate when people say things like "it feels like" and don't back it up with numbers. I get your point.

    Good to know. I really wasn't sure. Simply put, I can't recall the last time I saw you post something positive or hopeful for the Reds. Everything seems to be slamming them down or ridiculing their chances. Seems like an odd way to follow a team is all.

    Webb on the mound for the fish. Time for Heisey to shut people up. *grin* And no, I'm NOT holding my breath. :O)

    ~edit~ Although, considering the length of that at bat...I very well could have. Ugh.
