    Merged: Not really digging Majewski right now / "Magic" Run Machine: Gary Majewski

    i am not really digging him right now!! hes been horrible thus far with us, hopefully hes just going through a bad stretch but its not his fault we lost today. ITS JERRY NARRON'S FOR MAKING THE DUMBEST I DECISION HAVE EVER SEEN. TAKING EDWIN OUT WHO WAS 2-2 WITH THE BASES LOADED. GOD. HE JUST PISSES ME OFF AT TIMES.

    Not his fault today, Phillips should have had the first double. Remain calm.

    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12

    I was waiting for this thread.

    Where's Mercker's?

    After reading the ORG game thread, I'm at least looking forward to some Edwin Encarnacion jokes along the lines of the Denorfia, Chuck Norris, etc.

    Re: majewski

    Narron thought it was the right move to hit Hatt, and Keith Hernandez said right or wrong it was a good move to make. I tend to believe in the decisions/observations of two guys with quite a few decades of actualy MLB experience over my fellow Redzone posters.


    It's not Jerry's fault no one on the offense could bring in a runner.

    My thoughts exactly.

    Frankly, he should have never been in the ballgame, too many missed opportunites, five consecutive innings with the lead-off man on base and twice there were two runners on in scoring the Reds didn't get it done.

    When Edwin speaks, its not just a conversation, its a lesson in humanity and bravery.

    Can't blame Majewski. He gave up a run in the 10th inning, and inning that shouldn't have had to take place to the begin with.

    Blame the hitting for this game, not the pitching.

    Unlucky Majewski stays calm in storm
    Friday, July 21, 2006
    BOB HUNTER



    CINCINNATI ó Gary Majewski was a Houston Astros fan when he was a kid, and he knows what he would be thinking about a trade that gave up one of his teamís most popular players and another starting position player for a couple of relief pitchers.

    "I know how much everybody loved Austin (Kearns) here," he said. "I would be thinking ĎWhatís going on?í "

    You couldnít blame him if he were thinking the same thing now. While he hasnít exactly been lights out in his three appearances with his new team ó his 22.50 ERA looked like a midnight bonfire stoked with rocket fuel ó he hadnít had much luck. And in two of his three chances to show everybody in Cincinnati that the Reds did the right thing by acquiring him and fellow reliever Bill Bray from the Washington Nationals, his outings have been sabotaged by bad plays.

    In his first appearance, he got in trouble with a double and jam-job single but was about to get out of the inning when shortstop Royce Clayton, another Cincinnati newbie, booted a ground ball. Yesterday in the 10 th inning, he got Xavier Nady to hit a blooper to shallow right that second baseman Brandon Phillips had in his sights before rookie right fielder Chris Denorfia called him off.

    Unfortunately, the hard-charging Denofia didnít catch the ball and it fell for a $#!@*@#! double. After Majewski struck out Jose Reyes, lefty-swinging Endy Chavez slashed one just inside the line at third Ė everybody seems to place it just inside the foul line against Majewksi lately ó for a double that gave the Mets a 3-2 lead and finished the relieverís day again. When Kent Mercker entered and gave up a double to Carlos Beltran, the Mets had their final 4-2 margin and Majewskiís aching pitching line and had another run.

    Majewski pulled his shirt over his head in anger when he reached the dugout but seemed unfazed by it all afterward.

    "The first two outings ... everything started with the bloop hit and then the double down the line," he said. "Itís one of those things where you beat the guy and heís late and he just gets it down the line. I was more frustrated at that than anything else."

    Denorfiaís mistake didnít bother him?

    "It happens," Majewski said. "You canít get mad. It would be like a position player getting (mad) when the pitcher throws a fastball down the middle and a guy hits the ball out."

    Majewskiís calm acceptance of his misfortunes might be as good a sign of his value to the Reds as all the nice things they said about him in Washington; he reputedly had the best stuff of any of the relievers in the Nationalsí bullpen.

    Reds manager Jerry Narron insists that he isnít concerned about Majewskiís first three outings, and although he almost has to say that, his explanation seemed sincere.

    "Heís going to do a good job for us," Narron said. "Shoot, he was out of that inning. It seems like every outing heís been out there thereís been some kind of freaky little play. Heíll be fine. Heís going to get a lot of chances to pitch and Iím sure heíll do fine."

    Majewski has the mentality for it, anyway. He was wearing a T-shirt in the clubhouse afterward that canít be quoted in a family newspaper, or even in a respectable strip club. It strung together three raw expletives in a five-word sentence, which he thinks of as a nice challenge for opposing batters.

    But after the storm of protest over the trade, he knows that Cincinnati fans would rather see some results than hear about some silly prop he wears under his uniform. He also seems to be enjoying the attention ó negative as some of it is ó that most middle relievers never accumulate in their entire careers.

    "I love it," he said. "Iím relaxed and Iím going out there throwing strikes and trying to do the best I can. Itís just one of those things. I just canít let stuff like this affect me."

    Could this just be a lot of false bravado? Maybe. But he steadfastly claims he isnít frustrated.

    "I just want to put up a zero."
