    9/9/17 - Reds vs. Mets




    Nothing about the outfield configuration makes sense to me here.

    Yeah, that outfield is just weird, unless the team has been completely convinced that Ervin cannot play CF. I didn't see anything in the past couple days that would show that though.
    There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." -- Isaac Asimov

    Three good athletes in the OF. Not a CF in the group. Really not even a good RF. I think they just want to get a look at Schebler in CF and like Kivlehan's arm the best for RF. Still probably better than Dunn, Griffey and Conine out there.

    Brandon "Finding" Nimmo makes a nice diving play to rob Cozart in the first.


    Reds go 1-2-3

    LOL, holy outfield defense Batman.

    Why on earth isn't Ervin in center field? Bryan Price is infatuated with playing guys out of position. I guess we just have to keep extending him until we win the World Series.

    In my recent Bryan Price quote post I forgot to include the one where he talked about what a great centerfield Brennan Boesch was playing in spring training.

    Chris Welsh with the news flash of "expectations are different in New York than in Cincinnati".

    Ya think?

    Maybe you guys just over-rate Ervin out there. It's not like they had him playing CF in AAA. Seems like they already gave up on the idea of Ervin in CF. Heck, they had a second baseman playing out there in AAA instead of Ervin.

    I am telling you, Chris Welsh reads the game threads. He just tossed out a "Finding Nimmo" on the air.

    This has happened several other times over the years too. That, or I'm not the only one who thinks of this stuff. Nah, he reads the Game Threads.


    Hey Chris!

    Suarez walks. 2 on, nobody out for Schebler.

    1-0 Reds on a sac fly by Schebler.

    Suarez somehow also advances on to second base on a weird throw by Aoki.
