Rob Neyer: "Any writer who says he'd be a better manager than the worst manager is either 1) lying (i.e. 'using poetic license') or 2) patently delusional. Which isn't to say managers don't do stupid things that you or I wouldn't."
Dunn keeps striking out. 107 this year. I know, it doesn't matter.
With "GOOD MR. RED" being a team that played smart with energy.......
BAD MR. RED is baaaccckkkkkk!
I would almost think that Jerry Narron is hovering somewhere around this game.......
"Is there a problem officers?"
Bailey got beat up tonight for the Bats...details in the minor league thread
I think I've never said a bad word about Adam Dunn. But I've got to say, he look sterrible at the plate. Why doesn't he swing at the close balls when he has two strikes!!!! It's as if he is sleepwalking out there. What are our coaches doing for this team?
Hernandez just said if he K'd as much as Ross in 200 some AB's he'd consider jumping off the GW bridge.
He's killing me tonight.
letting Arroyo bat in the 7th inning while losing against a team with Wagner in the pen ... hmmm
What are you, people? On dope? - Mr Hand
Freel lets Reyes stretch a single to a double.
Reds don't appear ready to play tonight. The Mets are so much more athletic and aggressive it's like the Reds don't belong on the same field.
Maybe Reds will pick things up in the eighth and ninth.
Freel working hard to show everyone why he's not an everyday CFer.
Jay Bruce has homered tonight in his AAA debut FWIW.
I think Hatteberg is great, but he is platooning. Why leave him in against lefty Feliciano in the eighth inning? Against the lefty, isn't Conine the better hitter? Mets gain the advantage lefty-lefty, Reds agree to the disadvantage.
Conine is not going to hit for Griffey, nor for Dunn, so Reds basically are unable to use good righty hitter against Mets lefty relievers.
Ok if Hatte plays against all pitchers, but he is a platoon guy. If so, platoon him.
How many runs do the REDS give up in the 8th?
