Winds will be gusting heavily down at the yard tonight, and it will be interesting to see how much it impacts the pitchers and if any outfielders have issues. Storms are moving into the area late tonight, but they should be able to get the game in without any problems.

I think the prevailing view has always been that if Mes could start hitting like we all felt Mes could hit, he'd start playing more.

I think he has earned more starts.

The storms are supposed to be late but looking at the radar it looks like they may hit a little earlier than predicted

You could see it in his short stint last year, but guys just don't pick up his fastball very well. I don't think he'll be able to throw it 90% of the time like he has in the minors but it's definitely going to be a weapon for him.

There's definitely been a few pitches around 84-85. I'm thinking they were changeups.

Cingrani makes it out of the first unscathed. 21 pitches, 1 offspeed (changeup). It was the pitch Valaika popped out on.

Good job getting out of that inning unscathed. He should start mixing it up a bit more as he gets more comfortable I'd imagine.

like a lot of pitchers, likes to use mostly fastball first time through the order. think of bailey the other night, he didn't break out the curve ball until the 4th or 5th inning.

New York Red
04-18-2013, 08:27 PM
Both the hits off Cingrani were soft ones. Not a bad first inning for the kid. And Cozart makes everything in the field look so easy.

Blitz Dorsey
04-18-2013, 08:27 PM
Both pitchers topping out at 95 MPH early (although I expect a tick or two better from Fernandez at some point).

Cozart can flat pick it, my friends.

I root for the Blue Jackets to do well (even though I'm not a hockey fan) but I don't like that the Reds' game is on the overflow channel (no HD) and not the other way around. I guess living in Columbus instead of Cincinnati this is what I should expect. I just consider the NHL to basically be a minor league. Haha. I have it on par with MLS and the WNBA (OK, not as bad as the latter).

Blitz Dorsey

I like Cingrani's composure a lot. He also does a good job of not forgetting about the baserunners.

Oh yeah, his stuff is pretty damn good too. Definitely relies on his fastball like no other starting pitcher I've seen recently, but he has an electric one and moves it around well.

I'm actually an Avs fan, but living in Columbus I root for the Jackets as well. And I wouldn't consider the NHL a minor league, although that's you opinion. I consider the NBA a minor league, but that's just my opinion. If it was the Cavs, I'd be complaining right there with you!

But either way, the season is over in 2 weeks, so I don't mind NHL/NBA taking precedence in April

Blitz Dorsey
04-18-2013, 08:47 PM

It's because of their pre-game stuff most likely. Easier for FS Ohio to just put each game on separate channels. I agree with you though -- there has to be a better way to do it than this garbage. I've been SO spoiled with sports on HD TV.

Fernandez is flat-out ridiculous. I was laughing when I heard the "Dwight Gooden" references. I ain't laughing any more.

When Ruggiano led off the 2nd with a walk, it snapped the Reds’ streaks of 100 consecutive batters faced and 28.2ip without issuing a walk.

I think they might be pitch'n pretty well.........

Blitz Dorsey
04-18-2013, 08:52 PM
This is going to be one of them games.

I just hope Cingrani can hang in there. Has a Rocky v Ivan Drago in the early rounds feel to it. Hopefully it has a similar ending (Cingrani is of course Rocky).

Both guys are putting up 0's so far, but Fernandez is on a different level. He's dominating.

OnBaseMachine
04-18-2013, 08:54 PM
Cingrani can't continue falling behind every hitter or it could get ugly.

11larkin11
04-18-2013, 08:55 PM
His first curve/slider/slurve/breaking ball/ball that spins horizontally/eephus pitch didn't look too sharp. This usually isn't news for a pitcher, but considering we won't see it often, I figure it was news.

Reds Fanatic
04-18-2013, 08:55 PM

Just got on here to say the same thing.

It's hard to be frustrated with a guy who's given up 3 hits in 3 innings, no runs, and struck out like 4. But he definitely is flirting with disaster getting behind so much.

Me either. He only throws 91-93 mph on his fastball. And very rarely throws another pitch. And when he does, it doesn't go for a strike.

It will be hard to know if he has success because the hitters have never seen him. Or because he hides the ball so well.

That high fastball must really be deceiving. Around the eye level everyone is swinging at it but it's nowhere near a strike if they lay off.

NeilHamburger
04-18-2013, 09:06 PM
Another K, but his stuff looks more like a good lefty reliever than a starter up to this point. I don't if it's just today, but going forward he's going to need to control something besides his fastball. Especially after teams get a good look at him.

Hillsdale87
04-18-2013, 09:06 PM
5th strikeout. Hitters are definitely having a hard time picking up his fastball. He's throwing a little more offspeed stuff now, but the hitters aren't really going for it. Hopefully he can start getting ahead of hitters and go 6 innings

OnBaseMachine
04-18-2013, 09:06 PM
I think it's just nerves, his control will be fine, IMO.

On the RF falling down on a ball right at him and then a two run double on a ball clearly foul the umps missed. Its comical how many breaks those dudes get, Wainwright hasn't allowed a walk or a HR in 25 innings so far this year.

I root for the Blue Jackets to do well (even though I'm not a hockey fan) but I don't like that the Reds' game is on the overflow channel (no HD) and not the other way around. I guess living in Columbus instead of Cincinnati this is what I should expect. I just consider the NHL to basically be a minor league.

I can see why you would consider the NHL to be a minor league, having rooted for Columbus.

What kills me is that the Reds hitters love fastballs. I'm really surprised someone hasn't gotten a hold of one by now. Seems like Bruce was close.

The kid seems enamored with his fastball. I think it will catch up to him at some point. Atleast I hope.

You can sit on that fastball all you want, but if he's painting the corners with it like he was earlier in the game, you're not going to touch it. David Price, throws mainly fastballs, nearly unhittable. Fernandez throws straight gas, and if his location is on, you're not going to hit it.
