    - gomes is terrible at just about everything
    - reds don't show up in big games or against good teams
    - cordero closing ballgames

    Looks like we were bit by everyone of our major weaknesses, except Cordero. My fear is that we do put together a good game and then Co-Co blows it. But, first we have to get to that point.
    Right. Except all stats say Cabrera is an above average defender. But I'm sure you knew that.

    My grandfather died today. You'd think that would put it into perspective for me, but yet here I am. Venting.
    Sorry to hear that.. My Grandma died two weeks ago and the Reds were still on my mind. It happens.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Something to think about. RBA can be wrong.

    I said he might not have the makeup. That I didn't trust what was between his ears to be a big game pitcher. I fully supported the decision to start him today.

    You just ran off and got all self-righteous. Go back and read the thread. Don't fall off your horse when you do.

    meh... wrong line... OCab is an entire .1 runs above average in Range Runs above average... That's not good... He's also a complete hacker at the plate... If you'd really take OCab over Janish defensively at SS, there's not much of an argument...

    I think reality is just starting to set in for me. The Reds really got no-hit tonight in the playoffs. Wow.

    If you want to have a "glass is half full" look -- the Reds 1-hit the Phillies once they got the guy who had no business starting a post-season game off the mound.

    Meh... This is definitely wrong... Volquez had been the Reds best starter over the last month. He also had a very nice history (albeit small sample size) vs. the Phillies, and good splits vs. lefties...

    Starting Volquez wasn't the wrong decision... It had the 2nd worst repercussions if it went wrong (an Arroyo meltdown would've been more ugly), but it was still the perfect gamble given the guy throwing on the other side...

    Late to the party, so two points that might have been made already...

    1) I blame Bob Boone

    2) The Reds could mot get a hit the rest of the post season and I would be happy and proud of this team. It's been a wonderful season and their future is very bright. :-)

    Volquez is a RHP with a history (recent history & long term history) of control problems. Even when he was "on" he was generously described as "effectively wild." That works against hackers and under-.500 teams. Against a lineup like the Phillies, that kind of pitcher usually gets worked.

    As I said in another thread, Volquez wouldn't have been among my top 4 to start a postseason game for that exact reason: the risk of him being completely ineffective and having no command is just too great.

    Then look at the bright side, at least Volquez went in game 1 in a game that we literally had no chance to win. Now if we go to game 4 I can almost gurantee Wood is on the mound.

    And I think reality set in with me too, but not in the way you might think. We're down 1-0. We get to come back and play again on Friday. It really was only one game.
