    Did Lutz ever give an explanation for his running last night? Did he think there was two outs or did he think the ball wouldn't be caught?

    Bruce walks and we have first and third.

    Frazier blasts one to center, and we are tied up!

He has not been succeeding lately IIRC. He's clearly working on that stuff they want him to. So let him work on it.

    Villareal is not a scrub. He's a starting pitcher at the AAA level who got a call up last year. He may get tattooed tonight...but I think the Reds have confidence in Pedro to keep the Reds in a game.
    I think Pedro V is pitching for two reasons.

    First, he's on the forty man roster.

    Second, he's rested.

    If those were both true for Cingrani, Reynolds, or Gallaraga, that person would be pitching.

    My guess is they made a calculated decision that Cueto would likely pitch tonight and so they didn't rearrange the AAA rotation. It backfired.

    Even if Pedro V throws a three hitter and goes the route, I would have Cingrani pitch next time.
    40 man roster played a role in the choice as well I'd imagine.

    Pedro just came off a 7 ip 4 hit 2 run game.
    Tony just came off a 7 ip 6 hit 3 run game.

    Just sayin it's not the horrible decision some are making it out to be.

    ~edit~ Your last post is very reasonable and most likely close to the truth. I just don't see it being enough to get worked up about.

    Choo's slash on 4/24 was .392/.534/.608. Going into tonight: .282/.438/.493.

    Okay?

"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."

    Agree. But no way should Pedro pitch next time. That would be the stuff of a long thread.

    meanwhile, in baseball, Reds up 4-1.
    Is it "next season" yet?
