    They weren't out-talented by the Mets today. A loser mentality lost that game.

    Go on vacation for 3 days and the loser mentality comes back. So much for the change of manager. I hope Mackanin has a closed door meeting with all of them and berates them to no end.

    The REDS should be embarrassed by each other.

    Just bad.

    Dunn has horrible discipline. He could care less what the condition of the game is with his at-bat. He's always going to do it his way. Can't wait until he's no longer a RED.

    My favorite was after Encarnacion stole second.

    Snarky...check.

    Condesending...check.

    Tossing out useless bits of gibberish...check

    Stating the obvious....check. (i.e. "lefties are in demand)

    Listend to the last 3 innings of the Mets broadcast. People don't like Marty...fine. That's there perogative. But lets drop the charade that every other broadcast on radio by someone with a last name other than Brenneman is baseball nirvana.
    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

    Looks like Mets announcers were berating the opponent?

    Start with Mackanin. He now has transformed back into Narron.

    His lineup took Griff and Dunn out of the game (1 for 6, two walks) and the management of the pitchers was textbook Narron.

    Two runs against a pretty hittable SP. Pathetic.

    Two runs -- AND FOUR HITS. The Reds score on home runs only. They do not get hits. They always fail in bigger ballparks because they do not get base hits.

    Everybody knocks batting average. You need some guys that get a lot of hits. The Reds don't have that.

    Interesting. Apparently, we value "productive outs" except when Adam Dunn produces one that moves a runner into scoring position when down by one Run in the ninth inning with two strikes on him while facing a lefty hammer throwing 97 MPH.

    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.
    I support the decision to leave Hatteberg in to hit for himself. It's true that Hatteberg and Conine are a platoon, but it is also a fact that whoever is not starting at 1B is undeniably the strongest bat on the bench that night (unless Griffey, Dunn, or maybe Phillips is getting a night off). I think that it is not very prudent to use your best bat off the bench (in tonight's case, Conine) for one of the better hitters in the lineup. Basically, the platoon determines who starts at 1B, but after the game begins that player remains at 1B for the duration of the game. (The same thing happens when Conine starts at 1B--you rarely, if ever, see Hatteberg PH for him.) Hatteberg and Conine might replace each other as part of a double-switch, but that's about it.

    Phillips isn't a leader.

    Hopefully Votto is.
    What about Hatteberg?
