Danny Graves....always makes it interesting.
Danny Graves....always makes it interesting.
He's been very good as a Red thus far, he's nothing like Graves.
Graves was decent for a while for the Reds....
He has a nagging injury but Narron runs him out to the mound instead of Shack, awesome!

unfortunately I think Eddy has ran out of gas. I love his fire but I don't think he has the stuff. The Reds really need a legitamate closer and that will ultimately be their downfall.
Way too many of our pitchers are running out of gas. Guardado, Majic, EZ, Arroyo, Mercker (DL)....the list seems endless.Originally Posted by redlegs2370

I know, but Eddie always at least gives up a hit, or at least it seems that way. I dont know his actual stats. Danny Graves used to do the same stuff, go out there and give up a hit, walk, stolen base, then a double play to end the game.Originally Posted by Chainer
Eddie is streaky....he will go and close out 3-4 games and not give up a hit, or he will do like he has the last few nights.Originally Posted by buckscout
In defense of Eddie, he had some shoddy defensive play behind him this weekend that contributed to the blown saves.
Good thing Monday is an off day. I think with his arm now, he will do better on a day rest.
It is worth noting that he didn't give up an earned run in either of the 'blown save' games. Today gave up three hits tho, but the EE error kept him from squeaking by.
We can't make EveryOtherDay Eddie get four outs every day...
“This one was a perfect one. I don’t know if I can find a better one, better timing. He [Price] really said some great things there. It really encouraged us to go back and do what we do. … I didn’t know he could speak like that.” Brayan Pena 5/21/14
From what I've seen Eddie either has his good stuff or not. If he is good then I feel confident, but if he comes in missing his spots and looks tight then the game will definately be interesting. I don't think he is anything like graves. Graves made the game interesting for the other team and drove reds fans to drinking. Graves is the sole reason that the stadium should have been serving beer after the 7th inning.
Geez...give the guy a break. He was throwing 83 MPH tonight. He even said before the game he was on fumes. He should not have been out there. Not to mention he has a slight injury. The guy is a gamer.
Cedric 3/24/08It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...
i love this guy he pumps up the team after the game and probably pumps up the whole locker room which is why we are so good and have so much chemistry this year
Yea....9 for 10 for saves (or something like that)...totally like Graves at the end.
But I hear where you are comming from. But Graves problems were of his own making where Eddies are mostly the result of defense mistakes. EE doesn't muff the play tonight and the game is over in the bottom of the 9th.
I was at the game on August 4th where he had the bases loaded in the top of the 9th with either 1 or 0 outs. He got us out of that jam but that was definatley INTERESTING to say the least.
a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.
I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate
