    Cedeno grounds out to Cairo at third.

    I think our starting pitchers like facing the Pirates

    Not the bullpen, however...

    Reds starters have pitched 19 innings this weekend so far, 7 hits, 1 run, and a 24-2 K/W ratio.

    It would be nice to get one of them a win.

    With nobody out, that's absolutely the right play. With one out, you don't want him going...

    Yeah, much easier for Ramon to get the RBI with 1 out & 1 runner at 3rd, than a runner at 2nd & 1 out

    You try that play with 1 out, certainly not with zero or two.

    You never make the first or last out at third.

    You gamble with on out to get the runner to third where he can score on an out.

    With nobody out when you're on second, you tag on fly balls to try to get to third with less than two outs. The fly out is the first out of the inning. With one out, you go halfway on fly balls because there will now be two outs and you're already in scoring position. No reason to try to push the envelope to get to third...

    I think you two are agreeing here, just getting confused on the wording. You make the play if there is nobody out when the play started, or when there's 1 out after the ball has been caught
