    Re: 5/4/11 - Astros at Reds

    My internet at school is awful so I'm listening to Marty instead of watching.

    This should be fun.
    Marty rocks, but in case you don't think so, you should be happy that Kelch does about half the innings these days.

    DP 6U-3
    DP3 6U(2)-3/ Pence
    3 out
    Top of 3rd over
    Janish up

    2-0, Astros

    320
    I'd rather listen to Kelch read the phone book than suffer through Thom Brennaman's attempt to make every instance on the field the most important event since the discovery of manned space flight. -westofyou

    2-0 in the 3rd is not a big deal. It is Wood's job to hold then down the rest of the way and the offense's job to make sure that it isn't an issue.

    Forgive me, but just take an objective look at the Reds' lineup today. If you think that's a division winning lineup, I disagree.

    The pitching is terrible. The starters' ERA is next to last in the league.

    But the lineup needs work too.

    A good lineup scores 8 against this pitcher today.

    Thanks for the clarification. I'm only listening, Marty made it sound like it was pretty well-struck...

    It was a division-winning lineup in 2010 (obviously without Rolen, which happened occassionally last year). So yes, I think it can be a division-winning lineup...

    It was also a division winning pitching staff.

    Same guys.

    Valaika triples so there's no perfect game today.

    That's because they are missing the starting LFer.

    The Reds are missing 40% of their staff from the end of last year, including it's best pitcher.

    Reds screw up the suicide squeeze as Wood fouls it.
