"I talked to an advance scout that told me if Joey Votto and Albert Pujols were on the same team he'd advise his team to do the unthinkable...pitch around Votto to get to Pujols." - Buster Olney, ESPN
Cingrani gives up a run -- has he thrown anything except fastballs?
The older I get - the better I was
and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)
cingrani STILL believes he can get everybody out with one pitch.
Just something about the mindset of this team. They don't seem to respond to the challenge. There are injuries and deficiencies, but the team seems dead out there.
I mean, how can this team be whitewashed by this Griffin guy? And last night constantly leaving bases loaded, two men on.
Reds just seem to be a limited team. They can win on the backs of great starting pitching, but that's it.
Prepare for the 7 game deficit after this road trip is over. I never would have guessed it.
"You only have to bat a thousand in two things; flying and heart transplants. Everything else you can go 4-for-5."
Strikeout ends the inning. Cingrani got him on a curve.
Yes, a curve.
Pretty slider there for the K. But one more comes across to make it 5-0 Oakland.
Time to light a fire under this team Dusty. Let's go boys!!!
~edit~ D'oh. CLEARLY a curveball. Just got in the slider mindset I guess.
LOL, with the Reds losing all these games, Cingrani still is able to work on those secondary pitches. See, it all worked out fine.
I was at the Saturday and Sunday games in AZ and saw Bob Castellini there. He has a home in AZ. I hope he is on this trip to Oak and Tex and sees we need offensive and bullpen help.
