    6/5/2013 Reds v. Rockies (it just got Villareal in here)

    Reds:

    Choo 8,
    Cozart 6,
    Votto 3,
    Bruce 9,
    Frazier 5,
    Paul 7,
    Hannahan 4,
    Hanigan 2,
    Villareal 1

    Rockies:

    Colorado Rockies:
    CF: Eric Young
    3B: Nolan Arenado
    LF: Carlos Gonzalez
    SS: Troy Tulowitzki
    RF: Michael Cuddyer
    1B: Todd Helton
    C: Wilin Rosario
    2B: Jonathan Herrera
    SP: Jon Garland

    Predictions:
    (1) Villareal goes 4 1/2 innings. We see a lot of Simon tonight.
    (2) Hannahan botches a play or two, and people instantly ask for Izturis to come back
    (3) Votto homers
    (4) Hannahan and Hanigan batting next to each other in the lineup will result in frustration over how many n's are in each of their names
    (5) Reds win

    Villarreal starting is just a rumor to try to obscure the fact that Votto and Bruce hitting back-to-back.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    Prediction: Villareal surprises some people*.





    *the surprise could be that he is terrible
    "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."

    So why no Cingrani??

    NM, I see he pitched Monday. Bummer.

    I think you need to learn the definition of surprise, lol.

    I'm going to make a crazy, just because nothing turns out as expected, call of a 2-1 game.

    1: Pedro goes 7 of 3 hit / 1 run ball.
    2: Hannahan goes 3 for 4 with a big fly. Looks sharp in the field.
    3: Votto walks 3 times and goes hitless.
    4: Numerous posters begin humming "manah-manah" during the game.
    5: Hey, 1 outta 5 ain't bad....err....yeah actually, that kinda sucks. :O)
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Good night to take a night off for me. Watching Villareal chuck and duck could trigger my PTSD developed from staffs of the early GABP days.

    Funny you say that, when I read that Villarreal was getting a start, I started having Lost Decade flashbacks myself.

    Wonder if the Reds are annoyed that Cueto didn't reveal his discomfort sooner. Might have been able to use Cingrani or Reynolds tonight.

    Regarding Izturis, it's amazing how eye-opening 69 plate appearances can be.

    This is a depressing pre-game, that's for sure.
