    Wow - first spot of trouble after two very good innings to start and suddenly the Reds are doomed with Homer pitching.

    Can't afford to get much further behind with Wainwright pitching

    So many ground balls finding holes this inning. That's two weakly hit balls and one hit hard the last three batters.
    This will not change until the Reds win the World Series.......

    Bad luck at play here.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    When the count goes full you make a good pitch. Outside corner. A bit high.

    You don't lay it down the middle fearing the walk.

    If you walk him, you walk him.

    Throwing a fastball right down Broadway on a full count isn't challenging the pitcher. It's capitulating for fear of the walk. And he did it again to Carpenter at 3-2 this inning.
    I agree about Carpenter and other hitters. But Wainwright had a good eye. And he's still 'just' a pitcher. Make him hit it.


    I just don't subscribe to the theory you seem to have that every hit given up by a Reds pitcher shouldn't have happened.

    While that's true, he's also not fooling anyone with his pitches.

    Let's look at what has happened this inning: a really hard hit double, followed by 4 ground balls that found their way through.

    I call'em like I see'em. Let's see if I continue to be right. Let's hope not.
