Here's a thought for all free swingers (Heisey, Bruce, Frazier, BP...bench)...if strike 1 is a pinpoint strike on the corner....the next pitch is going to look just like that pitch.....but fall to the dirt.
Hope this helps.
Reds offense in hiding again?...1 run and 7 hits in the last 11 innings.
Dodgers pounding Wash again, 6-0, 2nd inning. Dodgers can be in first after today if AZ loses.
But here is something I do have a view on. Corky Miller has been a great organization guy for the Reds. But it is inconceivable that he is playing this game.
Not sure if Mesoraco's back was acting up, but against the main competitors you have to have 8 hitters in the lineup.
The Reds really messed up the catcher position this season. Given Hanigan's wear and tear and given Mes' relative lack of experience, this team needed to have a Navarro type in the wings.
I hope Corky proves me wrong and hits two grand slams today. But c'mon, Walt.
And that pitch was moving.
