    You mean like you do every game thread with posts just like this? (And like I'm posting here. Oh cruel irony!)

    I never thought I would see the day where someone would say we should leave Manny Parra in a baseball game.

    Credit to Parra, he has pitched well lately, but I really thought I would never see the day.

    They didn't hit bombs but it wasn't really weak contact. The balls went through pretty easily.

    Homer is a strikeout pitcher and he couldn't put away even the weakest hitters on the Braves, playing without the Upton brothers and Heyward.

    Not a good outing.
    He gave up some hits to batters he shouldn't have, yeah. He had 2 ER, 6 IP stuff today. And that's not bad. But he was his own worst enemy today in the field.

    That being said, considering the stuff he DOES have, I don't think it would have been crazy to think he should have kept this AAA bunch to 1-2 runs. Even without his own mishaps.

    So what happened exactly?

    I never thought I would see the day when someone made such cavalier use of hyperbole.

    If the Reds can hit a homer between now and the end of the game, I'll accept a loss without complaint.

    But it can't be an inside-the-park-job.

    I want the Reds to show that they are still capable of hitting one out of the park on the road.

    I can't believe the Reds are losing, Cozart is not hitting 2nd

    Reds are 5th in the NL in RBI out of the 6th slot

    What's a homer? You mean Homer Bailey?

    The RH's didn't come through vs a lefty today. Phillips, Frazier and Miller were bad.

    Not me.

    We had their starter on the ropes...left the bases loaded in the first with one out and then we just laid our bats down after the second inning.

    Homer was faced with a sub-par lineup today and he couldn't bail us out.

    We're going to lose a game to AAA Richmond. A meaningless solo homer in the 8th or 9th isn't going to make me feel any better.

    Funny how RBIs become a meaningful stat when they fit the narrative.

    I would give Miller a pass...since he isn't paid to hit.

    you expected Miller to fuel the offense?

    The older I get - the better I was

    and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)
