    As a rule, most pitchers absolutely want to throw a strike in a 2-2 count with the bases loaded. There's no reason for the hitter to assume a ball will be thrown in that situation.

    That was about as good as An ab that Mes could have had there. U cant expect a whole lot from a .200 hitter

    What about a walk or HBP.

    Mes just isn't ready. He has a real nice swing and bat speed, but his technique needs more refinement. We won't play him 4 times a week, he needs to be in AAA getting consistant playing time.

    Silly statement. Navarro is just a body for AAA.

    Not so much ball/strike as hittable pitch. The pitcher is not going to give in there with bases loaded and two outs in a 1-1 game in the 7th inning. At least not a good pitcher. Just isn't. He'll throw THAT pitch, and hope the batter gets himself out. Gotta get that count to 3-2 and hit something you know will be fat.
    Rounding third and heading for home...

    Rolen got him, but he just doesn't look very good doing it.

    Well, the pitcher threw four pitches in that 2-2 count. Two were fastballs and two were sliders. He basically had Mes eating out of his hand in that situation.

    Especially with the bases juiced.
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
