    Shut the heck up Brantley............

    That is all. Anyone who watched the ninth inning tonight knows what I'm talking about.

    I don't get the ripping of Brantley.

    He said what he said because he was right. Let's see if Eddie E can make more hits like this. However, doing this 1 time isn't exactly going to change his mind.

    EdE can be criticized for many things but one thing he has always been good at is hitting in the clutch. Brantley apparently was not aware of that.

    He must not have been reading the stat overlays from FSN.

    Um, no he wasn't right. Eddie has gotten several big hits for this team over the last 2 years.

    Right before the pitch Brantley said "He is not a clutch hitter, he's just not a clutch hitter."

    Then he ripped it out of the park...

    Not only that, but he said that Encarnacion should be taken out of the game, and replaced with someone who could bunt, because he missed two strikes when Baker had him trying to bunt with men on first and second and no out.

    No he was absolutely wrong. If EdE is going to play, it's for his offense. And he has proven that he is, in fact, the best player for the Reds to have at the plate with men in scoring position over the last couple of years. Brantley was dead wrong, and he needs to learn from it. Kudos to Thom for calling Brantley out, and telling him he was wrong, before the HR happened. Thom is a professional, Brantley is in over his head as a daily color analyst.

    If the players always prove Brantley wrong when he says something bad about them, then he can say bad things all he wants because that means lots of good things will happen for the Reds!

    I am SOO happy for Edwin tonight. He shook off his earlier mistake and more than made up for it by hitting that 3 run bomb into the left field seats to win the game. I don't think the D'Backs even knew what hit them, LOL

    Good for Edwin, that young man made us all forget about that throw earlier in the game and I am happy for him because he seems like a really good kid but I will say this, he better fix his footwork at 3rd or plan on hit 19-20 three run game winning shot this year.

    I'm a little concerned about the fact that Dusty had him bunting in that situation in the first place. In fact, I'm really concerned about it. Dusty himself says "He's an important RBI guy," but then he tries to have him bunt in that situation. I just had a really sick feeling in my stomach watching that near fiasco. I actually felt better when he had two strikes on him because I knew they'd take off the stupid bunt and let him swing at at least one pitch. Geez, its going to be frustrating if Dusty tries that crap all season.
