    I'm not sure I would say "not appropriate," but yeah, eight runs and a bunch of miscues certainly bear more responsibility than one botched AB.

    It was a really awful AB by Hairston, but this post is right on.

It's pretty certain they'd do the latter so you get BP to tie or win with 3 on and 1 out rather than Janish with 2 outs.
    Notice my post does nothing to blame Hairston for the loss. I'd never do that because no baseball game is ever lost or won on one play. But I was responding to the posts, on the game thread and throughout ORG, about the roster shortage. Roster shortage had little or nothing to do with the loss. The Reds' play did.

    Folks, the Reds did a lot of things wrong yesterday. The blame falls equally on every missed opportunity to score more runs than the opponent.

    Let's not forget run prevention, if we're going all macro here.

    Yes.
    That was probably the most exciting losing game I listened to in years.
    Great game by the Reds, despite a few mistakes.
    This team is a lot more pleasant to listen to this year. Great job to take 2 out of 3 from the Cards and to stage that miracle comeback (even if it did come up short).
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

Allowing 7 runs in 6 innings with 8 walks is not like the Volquez we saw last year.
    Eight walks? Volquez walked three batters, not eight. And two of them came in the 7th inning when he seemed to be tiring. Volquez pitched much better than his final line indicated. Taveras killed him in the third inning with his bad defense in CF.

    I agree with FCB. Cordero's walk to Thurston was equally as frustrating as Hairston's atbat in the 10th inning.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Maybe he was accidentally looking at strikeouts instead of walks

    Nope, ESPN had it wrong when I looked at it. They had the K's and BB's backwards. I should have known better.
