    That looked more like the Reds we've seen all season...

    Needed that deep fly ball one batter sooner.

    Nothing kills a playoff atmosphere more than an Elizardo Ramirez start and a Norris Hopper leadoff CS.

    My thoughts exactly. My 2 least favorite Reds among positional players are Hopper and Freel, largely because both have very limited skill sets, and are likely to negate anything positive they contribute with their lack of discipline on the basepaths and afield. We are so much better when guys like Freel and Hopper don't see anything more than situational playing time.

    losing the first game really took all the wind out of the sails and now letting Maholm of the hook. Game two could get ugly.

    In all honesty, the writing was on the wall the minute the pitching probables showed two lefthanders facing the Reds today. Its borderline criminal to field a ballclub that has this much of a problem with lefthanded pitching.

    They completely deserve their fate too -- they've known RH power would be a problem since they let Aurillia walk in the offseason and done nothing to correct it.

    So...no Hamilton in both ends? Really?

    Every time I feel like there is a glimmer of competence with regard to this team, they stomp my hope into something unrecognizable.

    Gotta give them props for that, I guess.

    But the organization loves these kind of players. Speed and nothing else. It's like they lust for them. Freel, Hopper, Ellison--they all are fast, but the first two use poor judgment and the third simply cannot hit major league pitching. And yet the new manager proclaims in one of his first public statements that he's going to find a way to get Freel in every game and then starts Hopper and Ellison which was waving the white flag in the first game of this double header. Krivsky is as attached to speed as Bowden was to the multi-tool player. I don't know which was worse.

    Hamilton IS OPS'ing .621 against lefties this season.

    Not like its that much of an offensive downgrade from anyone else in that regard, though.

    I think most righthanders would be better off just throwing with their left hands when they face the Reds.
