    Ultimately, the Reds' problem on this trip is going to be scoring runs. The occasional 330 foot fly ball isn't going to do it in these stadiums. It's a different brand of baseball requiring such things as multiple and consecutive base hits.
    True, and in reflection, this game was probably a lost cause from the first pitch. But I think you use Sam in different situations. I liked Simon there or even Bray, but too late for that.

    I'm afraid the book is starting to get out on Frazier. He struggles big time with offspeed away. We'll see if he can make adjustments.

    On the other hand, Bumgarner is looking nasty tonight. I hate the term "tip your cap," but that's what it's looking like. These games happen every once in a while. I'm sure the Brewers were tipping their cap to Latos the other night.
    This will not change until the Reds win the World Series.......

    This reminds me a bit of the Halladay no hitter in the playoffs two years ago. Pitcher is going great, terrific performance, but everything he throws is called a strike, no matter where it is.

    I have no problem tipping my hat to Bum but this could have been an exciting scoreless game with Reds personnel in their proper roles - at least until the pen came on...oh well...it is what it is

    I think it's a good move to get Jose back on the horse tonight

    Well, this looks hopeless, but it now becomes imperative that the team win more of these games than they lose on this road trip. Then the goal is to win at home two out of three and go .500 on the road. Anything else and it will be disaster. I think.

    Agree completely. Although sometimes I think the goal should be to get a run before the end of the last game Sunday.

    Oh. I hope that is in jest. Surely we can win two?

    I'm betting on one. (not really betting but you know what I mean) then 1 against the Dodgers and 2 with the Padres. That's my prediction.
