    Re: Reds @ Fish 6/8/08

    EE got hosed on the strike 2 call...it was a ball outside....so then he expanded his zone waaayy too much on the next pitch.

    They look bored and defeated....easy to say when offense looks like this but after yesterday...it does look that way.

    Nelson tries a sacrifice but grounds into a 3-6 FC. 1 out.

    Because Dusty is obsessed with his starters going 6. Clearly, he was punting this game. Awesome sign.

    Aaron Harang is the new Eric Milton.

    Harang has at least two more bad innings left in him, no need to rush in somebody from the pen.

    Looks like Harang is taking one for the pen today.

    Now they get Harang. As usual with Dusty he leaves pitchers to give up extra runs even when it is obvious they have nothing left.

    Why not....Harang is a workhorse. He doesn't need no stinking rest. He was only at 84 pitches....
    (Ramirez's 2nd HR of the day goes flying into the left field bleachers....)

    He was trending the wrong way as early as his May 12 start against Florida when he surrendered 3 HRs in seven innings; he had a good start vs. CLE (worst offense ever), then turned around and sucked in SD the Fri before the relief appearance.

    Follow his game by game tracker--his ERA has steadily risen since May 12. It could just as easily be the rise in temperature as it is the relief appearance. But the relief appearance makes for a good story wherein Dusty might take some of the blame, which is what everyone wants, so....

    Maybe he was keeping him out there out of respect.......
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    I'm getting out of here, but one last thing.

    I'm not going to blame Dusty when your ace (supposed ace) is out there. I still feel like something is wrong and I'll place the blame squarly on the shoulders of Dick Pole. If there is a flaw in his motion, which is possible, it should have been diagnosed by now. If there's not, I have to feel like he's hurt. Since May 12th, as FCB noted, he's been giving up lots of hits, which tells me he's very hittable and not missing a lot of bats. The last 3 starts he's struck out 2, 4 and 4. That's not like him.

    I do think Dick Pole is a horrible pitching coach. Always have.

    Typical Majewski a single, hit batter and a walk loads the bases.
