    Re: 6/13 Reds/Sox Jr is the DH

    I did not read the whole game thread....so maybe this was discussed.....but can somebody tell me why in high heaven does Miley let Milton face David Ortiz with the bases loaded and two outs when it is still a game?

    I mean, why are Mercker and Kiesler on the team if they aren't used right there?

    Just wondered if that was discussed and if there was a good reason.

    It came up, but no logical explanation was discovered...

    It's because Milton knows how to win.

    At least that's what people told me this offseaon...

    Around Pg 16.. Redszoners were wondering why

    1.. There was no one getting loose in the BP (before the bases were loaded)
    2. Milton was left to pitch to Ortiz.

    They were, of course, left wondering.

    The discussion in the game thread was pretty much like, "What the heck is he doing leaving Milton in so long and not having anyone warm in the pen". (I used nice words)

    Re: 6/13 Reds/Sox Jr is the DH

    Well, in Miley's little world (and head)...

    Keisler pitched yesterday. Can't dream of having him pitch twice without someone else getting a chance.

    Mercker is a "set up" man...so he can't be used before the 7th (at earliest).

    That leaves Milton as the only lefty to pitch to Ortiz...unless he brings in a righty...which he can't do because if he brings in a righty and Ortiz gets a hit...everyone will think he is stupid and doesn't play the matchups right...

    So, basically in the world of CYA...Miley had no choice.

    Well, thanks for the feedback. And for saving my poor eyes from reading the thread to find it. This guy Miley is bad.....I just do NOT understand this mess.

    Chalk another one up to the Miley is a loser column.

    So it looks like I picked a good night to catch up with some friends and go out to eat at Mongolian BBQ!! Sheesh, what a lovely final score.

    The obvious answer to both questions is that Milton was cruising and then the wheels came off. He's a battler, so we were hoping he could "moxy" his way through it. We have no idea what the solution is.

    06/13/2005 Reds roughed up in return to Fenway
    Milton gives up nine runs in 5 2/3 innings
    By Anthony Castrovince / MLB.com

    BOSTON -- We'll start with the good news, because Eric Milton is probably in need of something positive right about now.
    Milton didn't allow any home runs on Monday night. That's the good news.

    The bad news for Milton and the Reds is that the left-hander gave up plenty of other hits in the Reds' 10-3 loss to the Red Sox at Fenway Park.

    Milton (3-8, 7.97 ERA) was beat up for nine runs on 11 hits over the course of 5 2/3 innings, giving his team little chance of coming up with a victory against right-hander Matt Clement (7-1, 3.78). The Red Sox went up, 2-0, early on Edgar Renteria's two-run double in the third, and a three-run fourth inning gave them a 5-0 edge.

    By the time the Reds put two across with Felipe Lopez's RBI triple and ensuing run scored on Rich Aurilia's sacrifice fly, the Red Sox were in a groove against Milton.

    That groove led to a sixth inning in which Milton gave up a two-run single to David Ortiz and left two runners on for reliever Matt Belisle. Manny Ramirez then stepped up and hit a three-run homer to right that bounced out of Wily Mo Pena's glove and into the stands, sealing the Reds' fate in their first game at Fenway since the '75 World Series.
