    8/26/18 Reds in Chicagoland (Sunday)

    Good news: MLB is showing all the games free today.
    Bad news: The Reds are starting Homer Bailey.

    Hamilton - 8
    Peraza - 6
    Gennett - 4
    Suarez - 5
    Schebler - 9
    Ervin - 7
    Barnhart - 3
    Casali - 2
    Bailey - 1

    The Reds will attempt to rake against Kyle Hendricks.

    I'm not proud of this........... but I'm hoping Bailey gets hit early and often. I realize he is almost 100% sure to be on the team and at least our #5 starter next year, but there is no reason to pitch him again this year.

    Sorry....

    We have seen the shift defense...but after watching Peraza for the past two months I often wonder why teams dont play a bloop defense against Peraza. Peraza has been very successful at the hit the OF just cant quite get to....and they usually arent on the line. I cant think of but 2 or 3 times where his batted ball would be out of reach of an OF and beat them for a double....the ones out of reach he hits go over the fence (not many of those either)....but hes had many many many hits in bloop range. Also, moving in the OF even more often gets a player to try to do something a bit out of their comfort zone...just like trying to beat the shift

    Stupid little nubber single by Murphy to start the day for the Cubs, probably a bad sign of things to come.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    Scooters swing is so long and slow right now. He needs a day off and to shorten things up.

    Now a long Baez AB gets a groundout in the hole but Peraza's throw pulls Scooter off the bag.

    Two Cubs batters in and I'm thinking I don't wanna watch this.

    At a time when Bailey can use all the good luck he can get, he get's nothing but bad luck.

    I don't think I've ever seen Billy fall down like that before LOL. Are the Cubs using Voo Doo Dolls again?

    Heyward mashed that ball...Billy took a step in then blew a tire....at best the initial movement on that is a freeze to momentarily read but doing that and Billy still doesnt get to that ball.

    Homer is not having good luck but Billy slipping there just looked to he unlucky, but it was moot in my opinion

    The Reds played the field like the Bad New Bears in the 1st. There were at least two missed outs, and maybe three if you count Billy falling down. Homer is not good, but that innings was mostly bad fielding.
