    Kc's point is why I wished he had just walked Abreau. Bobby is a pro hitter. Someone said why? He almost sruck him out the spitch before. Right. And with a hitter like Abreu you get exactly one of those almosts. Then he makes you pay. He is past his prime but he is like old Ken Griffey Sr. He can hit until the day he dies. Those kind of guys were born to hit.

    It was a mistake pitch by Cueto.

    Reading some on here you'd think he intentionally threw it down Broadway.

    One of those close, tight games in the late innings full of missed LOB opportunities.

    The kind of game the Reds have been on the wrong side of over the last 3-4 weeks. Other than the Arroyo no hitter where Stubbs hit the HR in the bottom of the 8th have we won a game in the last three weeks tied or down after the 6th inning? At some point things have to even out... You'd think

    Bobby Abreu is a professional hitter. The Dodgers have a weak lineup.

    You fall behind Abreu in that spot you cannot groove the pitch, which he did.

    You make him go out of the zone to get a hit. If you walk him, you walk him, and pitch to the next guy.

    You groove a pitch to Bobby Abreu, even at 38, and you get burned.
    I agree, it was a bad pitch, it happens, he's given up 1 run through 6, typical Cueto. I'd hardly worry about that one pitch when this team is given great SP every night and is constantly fighting tooth and nail just to score enough runs to edge out the other team, which is 100X more frustrating to watch.

    Johnny at 84 pitches. More importantly, Adam Kennedy's at-bat music is Ain't Nothin But A G Thang.

    Frustration is why I harp and its not fair to gripe on Johnny when its the offense I'm actually frustrated with. Yall are right about that.

    Kennedy looked silly striking out on that 3-2 pitch. One out,

    Yes. Comfortable wins like last night's are rare....living on the edge is overrated.

    Obviously Cueto has been great, I'm not indicting the pitcher's whole season.

    And Cueto certainly is entitled to allow a run.

    But that one was predictable because it was Abreu. And in a very tight, low scoring game, I think it was a particularly bad mistake to throw it down Broadway to a hitter like Abreu.

    I would have rather he walked him. That's all.
