    8/30/2017 Reds vs Mets Part Two

    Ervin gets a start in CF. Hopefully they will give a good long look in CF and see if he is in the plans for 2018.

    Good. About time Ervin got another start. Really glad it's in CF too.

    This is Joe Morgan night in the FSO booth. He will along for the first three innings. We can always hope he stays and Thom leaves after the third.

    Yes, you missed him going on the DL with a hip strain. Sounds like the Reds are going to take it slow with him according to an update today.

    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    0-2 pitch ends up as a double to start

    I thought that double by Reyes should have been caught.

    Thought the same until I remembered Hamilton wasn't there

    I just went back and watched it. Have to disagree. (but not vehemently)
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    Thom and Joe dissing the moneyball approach to baseball. Because you gotta bunt and let that game clock wind down (in other words, give up an out).

    OBP is what matters. We all know this. There's a finite number of places for players to land on the bases. And an infinite number of times players can get on base provided nobody makes an out. So making outs is what kills the opportunity to score runs. It's shocking to me how many people, hall of famers even, can't get this through their heads.

    lol I thought Homer might get through a 1st inning without giving up a run, what a dope

    This is a glorified AAA team, Homer.

    Ervin didn't take a great route there. I think Hamilton gets to it.
