    Play at the Plate

    That was the final nail in the proverbial coffin. What a horrible call thumbdown:thumbdown and an absolute disastrous turn around for a team already spiraling.

    Let's get ready for 2010 now Walt.

    Nothing left to say...

    ...but Who Dey!

    Why send him there? You are still down a run even if he scores. I thought it was a bad decision by Berry. One of many this year in my opinion.

    Unfortunately I think you're right. I have never seen a team that doesn't make any breaks and doesn't get any breaks. How many bloops and bleeders fell in for the Brewers in that series and in this past series with the Cubs?

    How many great efforts like Dickerson (today) and Nix in the Dodgers series are not rewarded and go the other way? And then of course bad calls are going to go against you.

    Terrible call at the plate. I have never seen a worse year for umpires. May have not have not made a difference in the game, but still makes this current stretch of baseball by the Reds that much more frustrating.

    Bad teams don't get the breaks. Maybe if Encarnacion wasn't looking back, he could've scored. He didn't need to keep turning his head.

    I'm definitely with you though, i'm ready for Bengals/Buckeyes. 40 days 'til Ohio State kicks off, glad the Reds at least kept interest til now this year. Better than the last couple.

    What was EE looking at when he was tagging up from 3rd?

    Sure, it was a bad call at the plate, but it shouldn't have been remotely close. Just saw the replay again on ESPN, and he's looking at the OF the first 40 or 50 feet.

    It frustrates me that this team has become so bad, but it tears at my insides to see the same type of mental breakdowns, lack of effort and bonehead plays we've seen lately.
    Rounding third and heading for home...

    It's Edwin. The surprising part would've been if he HADN'T committed that mental error, or something similar.

    Exactly. If you could poll all the losing teams in MLB, they would probably complain about the same thing. Losers don't get any calls/breaks. Ideally, umps are supposed to be fair and impartial. But unfortunately, this is the real world. What's the old cliches? "You got to make your own breaks" and "You got to earn respect." The Reds haven't done either of them.

    Losers dont breaks fine, but calling someone out when they werent even tagged isnt getting or not getting a break. Its a bad call and no matter what is going on it was a bad call. No break about it.

    One of the worst calls I've ever seen...no bad break about it.

    The sooner the Reds get EE out of Cincy and Rolen in the quicker this team takes a step in the right direction for the 2010 season.


    Anyone who isnt a fan of the University of Kentucky basketball better be very afraid, very afraid because Calipari is coming.

    Just another example of bad coaching. The only thing EE should be looking at is the plate and the catcher to determine the slide.
