Just got in from work and saw where Rosales and Balantein have both struck out 3 times each. And the Reds are getting swept. Any team should win one of four. Of course most teams would score more than 8 runs in those 5 games, too.
It is pitiful.....these guys are just hacking and not even thinking. Take strikes...swing at balls. I mean they are paying attention but in the wrong way as they keep duplicating their AB's and not adjusting to anything.
Now we get Belisle...who has pitched like Ben Hayes 1983...Tom Hume 1984...bad this year.... yet no problem. BP swung through 2 good fastablls...still got a hit when he threw another one. Gomes hit the 1st one hard but the 2nd baseman was positioned where i wish BP had been last night. Now Balentin looks terrible today and does not want to K for the 4th time ..so he badly swings at nothing to pop up.
Do i sound bitter?
Stubbs can play some CF. Nice. Just bat the kid 7th. Of course, you've only got 7-8-9 hitters on the roster (with a few exceptions), so that might be difficult.
The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.
Belisle or anyone looks like Cy Young against this horribly emasculated offensive team.
Say Goodnight, Gracie.
