    Best Way To Deal With Pujols..........

    Can someone do us all a favor and everytime we play the Cards pull a Lewis Scott on him and get him drunk and messed up and kidnap him for 3 or 4 days... Celtic Pride style, this really would be the only way to keep him from killing us. As much as I hate him, you can't throw strikes to the guy, he just kills them, especially when it's a red throwing them

    Never understood why he hurts us so bad.

    Perception is skewed a bit though I think.

    "Bagwell is a Reds Killer," "Pujols is a Reds Killer," etc etc etc


    I think maybe Reds Pitching is the real "Reds Killer."

    It's a combination of three things:

    1. He is a great hitter.

    2. The Reds pitching sucks. Bad pitching and great hitting is not a good mix.

    3. The umps never call strikes on him. The only way to get a strike on Pujols is if he swings and misses or fouls off a pitch. He gets the special strikezone which is ridiculous, in my opinion.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    That 1st pitch was such an ovbious strike. You have to throw one right down the middle to get a strike called on him.

    God I hate that entire team.

    Usually Bronson doesn't need to be told that. Was he struggling to command his FB today? That's what usually gets him into trouble, along with maybe a few too many hangers.

    I would say he struggled with his control a bit today... he certainly didn't have his best stuff, yet he still went after every batter with his "I'm gonna challenge you no matter what" approach and Jerry Narron--INEXPLICABLY--didn't see fit to instruct him--or any other pitcher--to do otherwise.

    I agree 100% with that. You do not let 1 person beat you single handedly. The Reds did that today. I understand not walking him in the 9th with a runner on first I suppose, but what about the other 2 times he hit dingers.
    I'm East of you. Be very very worried. Not quite OBX. But, be worried.

    What to do with Pujols? Walk him and pitch to the rhino.

    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    I thought walks kill?

    Pujols is every pitcher's nightmare. Not just the Reds.

    Think it was easy pitching to guys like Mays and Mantle?
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations
