    Re: 3/11/09 Reds vs Astros

    Okay, thanks Chip. Let's update what's happened so far.

    Light breeze blowing out to left

    Top of 1st:
    Matsui grounds out to Phillips on a great play by Brandon
    Bourn grounds out to Ward who made a diving stab. Back to back web gems
    Berkman does his usual...double off the wall.
    Pence flies out to Bruce

    Bottom of 1st:
    Single to left by McDonald
    Sac Bunt to pitcher by Dickerson, pitcher tries for second, throwing error, then CF'er bobbles it. McDonald to third, Dickerson to second.
    Bruce sac fly to left. McDonald scores.
    Dickerson steals third.
    Phillips doubles down lf line, Dickerson scores.
    Ward flies out to left. Phillips aggresively advances to third.
    Francisco hits a sharp single past short to plate Phillips. 3-0 Redlegs.
    Richar grounds out softly to Berkman to end the inning.

    3-0 Reds after 1

    Sir Chas, I'm liking the way the Reds are playing this game. Good hitting, aggressive base running.

    exactly. They're picking their spots better in terms of baserunning. I've liked that they've been aggressive, but they've just been picking HORRIBLE spots up to today.

    These astros announcers are annoying me with their "analysis" of the Reds pitching.

    Re: 3/11/09 Reds vs Astros

    This is the first time I've even heard these announcers. I see a lot of their TV guys here, but not radio. But I do think they're spot on in regards to it being odd that our highest paid player is a closer on a team that hasn't won in a decade.

    It's just sloppy, but I guess what I have come to expect.

    Re: 3/11/09 Reds vs Astros

    Top of 4

    Tatum C, Jones 1B, Gomes RF

    Pence strikes out looking. K #4 for Aaron
    Blum pops out to McDonald
    Newhan flies out to DEEP right. Gomes snags it at the wall. 3 up 3 down.

    4-0 Reds middle of 4. Nice solid start for Aaron so far. Bailey is supposed to be replacing him today...not sure when though.

    Bottom of 4

    De La Vara still pitching

    Richar out on soft dribbler to third
    Tatum walks
    Keppinger...I missed it. But since it's a commercial, I'm guessing DP.

    Yeah, before today, they were picking times to run when they'd be thrown out. Really you'd think professionals would know better.
