    Re: Reds vs Cubs 8/19/08

    Quick question:

    In Sunday's game, Jerry Hairston Jr. was lifted for PH Jolbert Cabrera. I thought it was strange that Hairston would be hit for. And then he isn't in the lineup tonight. Did he tweak the hammy again?

    I'm just glad it wasn't Junior making that miscue in right field.
    There would have been 5-10 posts calling him horrible and the worst outfielder in the league.
    With Bruce it's OK...

    heh.

    It just surprised me because Bruce is an excellent defensive outfielder but he screwed that play up.

    Great jump and route by Fukudome to take a double from Bruce.
    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've noticed that. I've also noticed that at times it appears that Bruce's defense isn't quite what was advertised.

    Really? I've been very impressed with Bruce's defense with the exception of that play. Plus he's already got five assists in just half a season.

    Does Harden ever go by Dick? Because he is not a very nice pitcher.

    Phillips flies out deep to RF. Unproductive inning, but much better AB from the Reds this time through the lineup. Made Harden throw 22 pitches.

    I imagine Richard purposely got the moniker "Rich" just because of that reason. Dick Harden would have been just too funny.

    Lead off double by Theriot. Hey Bako, how about calling something other than fastballs? Major leaguers can hit fastballs. That 2-2 pitch would have a perfect time for a slider or changeup.

    Theriot works the count waiting for a pitch he can do something with. Promptly hits a double and now there is RISP with no outs.

    Wild stuff man.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate
