    September Scoreboard Watching

    I figured since the Part 2 scoreboard thread seemingly ran its course, we'd go to Part 3 - September edition. If that's OK with the mods.

    Currently, the Braves and Marlins are tied at 6 apiece going into the bottom of the Marlins' 9th.

    Milwaukee leads 5-2 over the Phillies in the bottom of the 6th.

    San Diego, on a 9-game losing streak, plays Colorado this afternoon.

    Reds currently have homefield advantage for the playoffs a game ahead of Atlanta and 2 1/2 over San Diego.

    If we're going to maintain homefield advantage, I hope Philly overtakes Atlanta in the East.

    Agreed. As of now, it would be Cincinnati vs. Philadelphia and Atlanta vs. San Diego. Of course, there's still a chance the West could get the wildcard, so hopefully Philadelphia simply goes on a losing streak.

    Marlins knock off the Braves in the bottom of the 9th with a walk-off single.

    One team I do not understand how they keep winning...is the Yankees. Burnett is garbage. They have someone named Nova starting...and while I rail on their ability to buy a pennant last year..... they are able to get Marcus Thames? To hit the way he has for them. All of a sudden Woods is pitching lights out (he is still walking people)..... even with Jeter hitting like Paul janish...they still win.

    I'm glad they were able to win one but the Reds should have won today too. Jon freaking Jay. Jon Jay. All you have to do is get him out in the 6th inning and that three run inning doesn't happen. The Reds had a chance to end the Cardinals season today but failed to do so. Don't get me wrong, I'm thrilled to have a seven game lead 26 to go. But that game was very winnable today.

    I can't stand Chris Carpenter, but he owns the Reds.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    OBM, Jay is a .300 hitter. He's a major league hitter hitting .300... let's not act like it was pitcher that was 5-for-his-10-year-career up there that doubled.

    Jay is a good young hitter with good bat control, a good eye and hits the ball pretty well. He's not a power hitter, but there are far worse things than surrendering a hit to him.

    Jon Jay has a career .799 OPS in the minors, and has been extremely lucky at the MLB level. There's nothing about his game that impresses me. He looks like nothing more than a career backup to me.

    The real killer was the bad pitch to Holliday. Just a bad, bad pitch by Bailey. He was pitching a great game up until that point.

    An 800 OPS hitter isn't great but it's nothing to sneeze at. The kid can hit. Has he been lucky? Sure... but lucky in the way that he wasn't going to keep hitting .380 the rest of the year.

    Jay has a nice swing. I urge you to set aside the fact he was lucky and look at him at face value... he's a nice young hitter with a level stroke. His problem is that he doesn't project for a ton of power, which is why he didn't have a higher OPS in the minors. But the kid can swing the bat. He's not an easy out.

    Brewers win. The Braves, Reds and Phillies all falter today.

    As I said in the game thread - in advance of the spot - you cannot leave Homer Bailey in to face Pujols or Holliday in a tight sixth inning spot.

    He often falters in the middle innings at this stage of his career.

    Had Dusty brought Masset in to face Pujols or Holliday there, the Reds likely win the game.

    You have to know your pitchers. Let Homer develop some other time.

    Jay, Pujols, Holliday were facing Homer for the third time in the game. Pitch count was irrelevant. The Cards have very few dangerous hitters, you treat them like dangerous hitters and go with your lights out reliever there. Yes, in the sixth inning.

    The kid had 60 pitches at that point and was pitching a gem.

    No reason to remove him. That's kind of overreacting to one hit.
