What chance did the Reds have sustaining a 3.17 team ERA? Not much, but it could have lasted a bit longer. I have to do my Reds Stats After Thirty Games post soon and I was looking forward to an outstanding team ERA.
Homer Bailey deserves every bit of this loss. Just a terrible outing. Back and forth with him ... He'll never put it together.
Gallardo is on tonight. Reds down in order, ending with a Stubbs K.
Brewers announcers say that all six Brewers runs tonight are on two out, two strike hits. Sam Lecure is the pitcher for the Reds.
And cards are up 2-0
Makes no sense to bring in a rookie with occasional control problems with the bases loaded and two outs. Bailey had handles Ramirez pretty well. Way to put a rookie in a tough situation.
Bruce continues his hot streak. 7-2 now.
What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?
All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
