    Re: 2008 Reds Game Tracker (Why Not??)

    The Reds held the powerful Phillies offense to 13 runs - 10 earned - in four games and still lost three of four games. Very disappointing series by the Reds offense. They could have easily won three of four games in that series.

    The Reds can get 3 of 4 from Florida.

    Pitching matchups favor the Reds in every game IMO, but three of four would be great.

    16-11. Arroyo/Harang/Volquez the next three days.

    Things are finally looking up in Redsland.

    Ouch. Talk about a painful loss. Just a horrible pitch there from Cordero.

    Another disappointing road trip so far at 2-4. If Cordero doesn't blow that save tonight then the Reds would be sitting pretty at 3-3 on this trip and only one game under .500 with Harang and Volquez pitching the next two games. What a heartbreaking loss...I don't think I'll be able to handle tomorrow's game. This is one of those losses I won't be able to forget, just like the one in San Diego.

    Cheer up-we'll get to see Harang pitch today. In fact, if ya can take a step back and throttle your passion for the Reds just a bit, todays match up should be very, very entertaining. The Marlins have called up Tucker from AA so we'll get to see his debut.

    As you know, the scouting report on Tucker is that he's a fiery guy with "stuff" i.e. a mid 90's fastball, a good change and a developing slider with "plus" potential (maybe it's gotten more consistent in Carolina this year or maybe his numbers just reflect a general improvement in his command?). He also throws a curve but I think the Fish have made him concentrate on the slider. He doesn't miss as many bets as you'd think he would on paper. I haven't seen him pitch this season but I can't wait to see how he does hopped up on adrenaline today...

    He pitches inside with abandon so hopefully nobody will get plinked. Hopefully Harang will school him on the slider today.

    The consummate professional vs the hot headed kid..... be there or be square.



    Anyway, I'm cheesing today....I also get to see Bedard against the BoSox and Garza against the Rangers. Mano to mano.... bring it on baby.....

    16-13.

    Could of used a "step up" performance from Harang, but instead he was putrid-- and he's been looking very, very ordinary lately.

    No matter what we do tomorrow, this is already a disappointing road trip, but Edinson can keep it from being a total disaster. My goal of being at .500 after the Boston series looks shaky right now, but still not impossible.

    Then again maybe not. That was a killer last night that fed into today's mail it in performance from Harang and the offense.

    17-13.

    Mildly disappointing trip, but nothing disasterous. VERY tough stretch coming up.

    I was happy to split with the Marlins.. Of course, it could always be better, but I came into the series hoping for a split.

    I'm hoping we can play close to 500 during this tough stretch coming up, and then play above 500 when we play in our division.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Cardinals, Red Sox, and Dodgers come to town for nine games. I'm hoping for 5-4 at the least. 6-3 would be awesome.

    I could see the Reds winning every series. I could see them losing every one too though.

    It should be a fun stand.

    Me too. For some reason, I feel like this Griffey hitting 600 thing is going to provide the team with another unspoken boost.

    Then again, they're going to hit good pitchers who may shut them down.
