    Aftermath of tonight's loss...

    Am I being ridiculous, or should they have at least tried to appeal to third base? That ball wasn't hit deep, and with Bruce's arm strength, I couldn't believe how not close that play was.
    either way, another lousy effort and a slew of blown oppurtunities from our Redlegs.
    I may not be fast, but I sure am slow.

    It must be said, he is a good pitcher. But not THAT good.

    And I was so happy when Bray came into the game to seal the deal. Chapman in the BP and Dusty uses Bray not once but twice with the game either tied or us up one and he does what he does best Blows it. Oh but wait he is still in his Spring Training mode. Maybe Dusty is to. The Cards tried their best to give us the game yet we can't do anything right yet again. Way to bunt em over Phillips go tweet about it now. That was a selfish AB IMO he never really tried to get the bunt down. This team needs a manager that will shake things up and not try to be all the players father. Dusty is great guy, just not a very good manager anymore. Ok done venting now on to Wed and hope we can start hitting.

    It's time to face reality, boys and girls.

    Baker has to go.

    I know how much some of you love him.

    But it really is time.

    I saw it a little differently on the sac fly to win the game. Mesaraco did a great job of blocking the plate....if he holds on to the ball that runner's out.

    I completely agree there were a slew of blown opportunities!

    The whole coaching staff should be tested for chicken and beer.

    It gets very old hearing the same people complain and moan and Dusty Baker. I know this has been said before, but he doesn't hit, pitch, or play defense. He puts the players out there, and they aren't performing. They can't even do what he wants them to do, whether it is bad strategy or not, they aren't performing. Aren't we all Reds fans? I can understand some complaining, but Dusty farts wrong and it "fire Dusty". I left the ESPN boards because of this crap!!!

    Tyler Greene can fly. 144 SB to 22 CS in his MiLB career and 16-0 in MLB. It would have been bang bang if he'd tried to hook slide and allowed Mes to catch it cleanly.

    I looked at the replay again. The throw was behind the runner. The runner is just past the catcher when the throw gets to him. If the ball is caught he is still safe. Mesaraco tried to catch the ball in the fair side of the plate and the runner slide right in behind him on the foul side.

    The problem with this game as well as many others is we aren't taking advantage of scoring opportunities, it's just that simple. I'm sure they will start hitting sooner or later but by then in may be too late. It's sure possible to lose the division title in April and May.
