    Re: 8/11/13 - Reds vs. Padres

    I was at the game today and somehow survived to talk about it. Bummed hard watching the Reds not get any offense going early, went ballistic after the XP home run, was amazed by some of the magical ways our pitchers got out of jams, got REALLY annoyed with the umpring crew (Joe West...you have GOT to go), and most of all, got burnt in the sunshine even though I put on sun block. We totally roasted in the sun for about 7 of the 13 innings and boy would I have been cranky if the Reds hadn't pulled off that win, LOL

    In other news, the MercyMe concert after the game was REALLY great. Love seeing those guys and they always do a fantastic show.

    An ugly but much needed win. It would have been tough to swallow losing two of three to the Padres again. The two "goats" from Saturday night showed a lot of fortitude by coming back and getting big hits in this game. That's what being a professional is all about. Putting the bad games behind you and going out and doing your job the next day.

    Well, not sure on that, since Broxton had a pitch clocked at 97. I'm pretty sure he's not hitting 100 these days.

    For some reason....I'm having a hard time seeing that one.

    I don't know if AC is tweaked or not but Dusty's explanation probably wasn't valid and I don't really see the drop in velocity that would freak someone out.
    Personally, I just thought his spike stuck in the dirt and he just tweeked his ankle a bit. He immediately looked down at it and walked around a bit. Grimaced initially too. Much ado about nothing IMO.

    I was at the game, and with the exception of one pitch at 99, everything he was throwing was in the low 90s or high 80s.

    He also threw a pitch that was clocked at 82. Unless he decided to throw a pitch I've never seen him throw before, I think something was goofy with the radar gun.

    Gameday had it listed as him throwing changeups. I know he DOES have a changeup...maybe he WAS throwing one.

    And he just decided to randomly start throwing it in August? I'm not saying it's not possible, but it's not very likely.
