    Just not smart baseball. IMO, that tells me they have less than zero confidence in Santiago, so if that's the case, why the hell is he playing.

    I don't think Price calls for all these bunts but he needs to talk to these guys about when and when not to bunt.

    You really have to wonder.

    The manager has so little confidence in his lineup that he bunts Santiago to set up the pitcher. And yet they are so wedded to this Pena catches Cueto thing that Mesoraco is sitting.

    Sorry, I just find this baffling. Maybe the Reds pull this out in a low scoring game and Price looks brilliant. But the Reds can't hit a beach ball into the ocean, yet they find it necessary to sit a potent right handed hitter against Hamels.

    One out, Utley hit by pitch. Howard up. No score, fourth inning, pitchers duel.

    Just in case anyone wanted a recap.

    Howard is now ahead in the count 2-1.

    Full count on Ryan Howard. Foul.

    I think Santiago was trying to bunt for a hit. I don't think Price is that off his rocker that he would have called for a sacrifice.

    HBP shouldn't even count.

    I'll never forgive him and the moron ump who let it happen for that phantom HBP in game 2 of the 2010 playoffs.



    And Utley is picked off! Hit him then pick him off. I love it.

    Price might have because he figures that runs will be very scarce, get the runner to second, maybe something good happens to get a run.

    Hard for me to believe Santiago did that on his own, but it's possible.

    I'm glad we have a new manager this season but after bunting to get to pitcher maybe we another manager change.that was pathetic.
    there's nothing like bowling a 300 game! 13 now and retired.


    Ricky henderson has a higher OBP than C. patterson and he's retired. C. Trent 6-14-2008

    Now two Phils on, another HBP after a walk to Howard.

    So two HBP this inning, but Utley got picked off.

    Two outs. Two on. No score. Up is Brown. Base hit. Two runs score.

    Welp, Johnny has only himself to blame for this one.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Now 3-0. Mayberry with a hit.

    This will be tough to win.
