    Just don't think he had much talent to begin with, and then age starts to kick in and it was bound to go downhill fast for him.

    Hanigan and Izturis are hitting .357.

    Unfortunately, that's combined.

    Stinks? I'd love to see Mez transition to 4/5 of the starts. Mez is just the better player right now.

    Robinson absolutely smoking it down the line there. 1st and 3rd now.

    Says you.

    1. I never said to throw our best relievers.
    2. In my list of relievers and when they last pitched, I did not include Chapman. I was not considering using Chapman.
    3. Obviously you're new to how Dusty lets Bronson get shelled. In the past, Dusty simply concedes the game. I am against conceding games.
    4. Before the A's got 6 or 7 runs, Dusty could have put in Lecure or someone who could go 3 innings, and Cingrani is a lefty and the A's stacked the lineup with lefthanded hitters.

    Maybe the Reds could have stopped the bleeding and removed Arroyo on his "off night" of pitching.

    But no. Let's concede the game.

    When we finish a game short of making the playoffs, remember how you were fine conceding the game.

    Reds are going to be in a hole after tonight, barring a comeback by themselves or Seattle

    You don't pull your starting pitcher in the 2nd inning in June. You will literally set your bullpen (which is already thin to begin with) back for weeks.

    It's not a good idea. No manager in baseball is going to do what you're asking. Not one.

    Hanigan had a very good year in 2010 and was passable in 2011-12. Never had power; hit lefties better; good OBP man for a slow catcher.

    But this year it's just brutal. He looks fine defensively, still throws well. But wow he's just an automatic out at the plate.

    Maybe he'll get going, but it seems very possible the guy isn't healthy.

    Choo with one to the wall. That'll be a sacrifice fly. 7-2.

    No sense in speculating, but I'm gonna guess its mental.

    Hanigan IMO used everything he had to get to the bigs, and I think your seeing a free fall from the little ceiling he had,

    I didn't mean it as a negative. He made a really good career for himself with what little talent he had. No doubt he had been a good player for the Reds.

    I was just saying he couldn't afford to lose what little pure skill he had.

    Votto takes ball four on four pitches. We've got 1st and 2nd again. Let's see if we can do anything with it.

    Tony LaRussa was famous for leaving guys out to take one for the team and he seemed to be an okay manager.

    Nevermind. Let's just concede the game.

    Meanwhile, Pirates are winning big and so are the Cardinals. I guess 3.5 back sounds good.


    The hitting is conceding the game by having half the batters get themselves out. 2 runs..... not going to win you a lot of games, even with 4 innings to go.

    Interesting. Never thought of it that way. Too bad because Hanigan was a nice eighth place hitter, better than most. Mes will be getting more PT if this continues, Reds won't abide a .160 hitter playing so often should it get that low.
