    Re: reds vs cards 8/17

    Why's it called a hit and run when the runner goes before the ball is hit?

    LOL. Good point. Kind of like the whole Driveway & Parkway argument. :O)

    Lohse will be a free agent....do you consider bringing him back?

    Just me throwing more crap out there for the masses to feast upon...

    So far, Lohse is looking like the pitcher the Reds got rid of...

    Jerry with a 2 bagger. 2nd & 3rd no outs. GREAT AB by Hairston. Really fought off those 2 strike pitches. Nice.

    Hairston works the count after falling behind and then yanks one off the top of the LF wall. 2nd and 3rd, no outs.

    Uggh. "A productive out is what the Reds are looking for here." No, they're looking for a hit or walk. A productive out is merely a consolation prize. Outs are NEVER something to pursue... Somebody needs to tell Grande that. Go get a hit, Jay.

    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.

    Keppinger forgot how to hit. He hasn't been the same since his leg injury.

    Lead off walk to Ankiel. That's a guaranteed run.
