    Darling said that Ramos wouldn't give in and he didn't, throwing the breaking ball on 3-2. If scooter had taken ball four it would have been interesting.

    Tonight's Joe Nuxhall Star of the Game is Mets RHP Rafael Montero, who pitched 8⅓ innings allowing no runs on 3 hits with 8 K's to get the win.
    Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman. Damn glad to meet ya.

    I was at the game. What a stinker to sit and watch that. We made Montero look like an ace. One hit through 8 innings. The 9th was exciting but that was it. The tickets were given to me and they were great seats. Otherwise I wouldn't have bothered. Oh well. As far as I'm concerned, football season starts tomorrow and given the Reds position baseball takes a back seat until Spring Training

    I understand where Morgan was coming from with all of this about less walks would equal more hits but I don't agree with him about it. For one thing if someone like Morgan or Votto swung more they would be swinging at pitches outside their comfort zone not mention outside the strike zone. IMO this would only equal a minimal amount of more hits. I highly doubt it would have got Morgan to 3000 hits.
    Still it was good to hear Morgan in the booth. He's still much more refreshing that than bag of wind named Thom.

    Oh I know but I was headed out the door and didn't have time to really parse that out. But you're right -- if major league pitchers know you'll swing at borderline balls, why would they throw you anything anywhere close to the middle of the plate?
