"This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
I shrugged off the last couple games, but this loss stings quite a bit.
Yeah, I said ouch. So much good pitching.
Can't dwell on it though, more games to play
Pay attention to the open sky
Not getting a split after pitching as well as they did in LA really hurts. 1-3 is a tough pill to swallow in this series only giving up 8 ER in 4 games+ to the hottest team in baseball.
I step away for 1/2 an inning to 'entertain' the wife and we lose. My bad.
Attended 1976 World Series in my Mother's Womb. Attended 1990 World Series Game 2 as a 13 year old. Want to take my son to a a World Series Game in Cincinnati in my lifetime.
Any word on when Marshall, Broxton and Cueto might be back?
Reds third in NL runs scored in July.
But sure, the offense is the suck.
Not sure what that makes the 12 other teams in the NL
"But I do know Joey's sister indirectly (or foster sister) and I have heard stories of Joey being into shopping, designer wear, fancy coffees, and pedicures."
Puig is a freaking beast. Holy smokes!
Everything that can be counted does not necessarily count; everything that counts cannot necessarily be counted.
All the dishes rattle in the cupboards when the elephants arrive
"You only have to bat a thousand in two things; flying and heart transplants. Everything else you can go 4-for-5."
Yesterday there were seven shutouts in baseball, and four 1-0 games. The Reds are hardly alone with the offensive struggles. The game has changed. Embrace it.
