Why is Beltran out?

Magdal
04-29-2013, 07:45 PM
Why is Beltran out?Because he is the hottest hitting card right now, and the worst player in the NL since Rick Ankiel and Chris Duncan Wiggington has to get some playing time.

I predict he will go 0 for however many ABs. Matheny figures that Waino will need NO runs to win the game!:eek:

Thanks, Maggie. Sounds good.

:thumbup:Oh, it's good Honey. The Cards have a trend going where they play awful players, going back to Joe Thurston, Khalil greene, Brendon Ryan, M. Ciaro, Dunkiel and others that don't come quickly to mind. Tonite it's the Wiggy guy. They gave this man a large contract for no CONCIEVABLE reason. So he must play! But in the 1st game of a REDS series??! OMFG! :confused:

No. Not dumb.

Bunting with a man on second makes more sense than bunting with a man on first. Getting the runner to third with one out is a good thing.

Also - we're talking Cozart against Wainright.

Absolutely the right move by Dusty.

IF Cozart had hit a grounder to the right side and advanced the runner everyone would be saying what a nice piece of hitting it was. Doesn't the sacrifice accomplish the same thing. I have no complaints.

If it's a small strike zone, so be it. As long as it's consistent I'm fine with it. It'll lead to a high scoring game most likely...just stay consistent.

Listening on radio...

Cowboy just commented on a Cards' player making a "galliant" effort on a hard hit grounder. This is at least the third time I've heard him use this made-up word, in limited radio-listening.

Is this a regular thing for him? If so, is it an "in-joke" or something he does on purpose (I know he and Marty often have fun with other made-up words he uses)? Or is it a genuine ignorance of the fact that "valiant" and "gallant" never got together and had a baby?

Don't think he actually kicked it -- more it bounced off of his leg -- but I'd throw him out of the game simply because he plays for St. Loo

I hope everybody sees why XPaul is the obvious LF when Ludwick is out.

That was a tremendous at bat.

He fouled off Wainright with an 0-2 count several times, and ultimately got the run home.

Guy should have been playing since game 2 of the season.

Have been glued to the game on mlb.tv while keeping half an eye on the Nats dropping a heartbreaker in Atlanta. Strasburg still pitching like crap. Long live Tony Cingrani.

Back to our regularly scheduled programming with just one ask. Can we get another run or two or does this have to be a cardiac event with each inning wondering if Latos will crack?

I find this whole Lutz thing annoying.

No way he belongs with the Reds as yet.

There were other choices at AAA. Didn't have to be an outfielder, the guy will mostly pinch hit anyway.

Latos was playing with fire almost every inning and for all we know maybe he went to Dusty and told him he was spent. We have no idea.

Latos didn't look right to me. I don't know how long he could go throwing 89-91 without locating his breaking ball.

I thought he looked fine personally. I thought he was locating fine too. Simply a tight zone tonight. He took some off to maximize control when it was clear that the ump wasn't giving the corners.

Whew! Like I said. Ondrusek: exactly what the doctor ordered. Guessing we don't mess around with this and Chapman finishes it? This is a win with greater importance than 'just a game in April.' Have to close the door.

_Sir_Charles_
04-29-2013, 11:34 PM
Choate is such a rarity IMO. A sidearm/submariner lefty. It just looks....odd.

Latos didn't look right to me. I don't know how long he could go throwing 89-91 without locating his breaking ball.

I'm a little worried about his velocity, but he's certainly getting the job done. He did hit 94 a few times tonight for what it's worth.

Still strange they took him out after 91 pitches, hope he's okay.

_Sir_Charles_

Choo grounds out to short. Surprisingly, Choate got a call on the black.

Votto stings ANOTHER one. Holliday makes a nice effort but can't come up with it. Single. Lucky for the cards it wasn't extra bases. That could've easily shot past Holliday.

Pitching change. Rosenthal in.

How is that an implosion? A double on a VERY good pitch. One hung breaking ball for a double. A comebacker for an out.
