    That would've been an unreal DP if they would've pulled it off. But they get the lead runner at 3rd on the pitchers bunt.

    It's not that IMO. They don't work together often enough so Mes doesn't know what Homer's wanting. You get a feel for what a pitcher wants to throw in certain situations and you get a feel for how a certain pitch is working for that pitcher that day.

    The initial pitch is called from the dugout I believe. But if it's shaken off, that's where the familiarity comes into play.

    Bullpen up and working. Hoover warming after the bb to load em up.

    3 walks in the inning
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    That's Bailey's problem......Mez has been doing a good job back there lately. How about doing what your catcher wants.

    Do you send him out there for the 5th? I do. But a short leash.

    Hannahan flies out to center on the first pitch. Good pitch to swing at though.

    Pitch count working its way up for Homer too. 65 in the 4th after the walk to Valaika
    Yeah, his fastball is down in speed but his curve is really biting. He's getting people with the curve and splitter with an occasional high fastball. Hopefully, Mez can use the Hanigan injury and the addition of one of the best catching coaches around (Corky) to his advantage. He needs to really build some rapport with the pitchers and build their confidence in him.

    Ron Hunt thinks Choo gets hit a lot.
