If Reds can get to Peralta early this could be another ugly one quick. Brewers bullpen in shambles after last 2 days I would think.

In his only start last season vs Reds he only went 5.1 innings but didnt allow a run.

Bonus points for how Choo's name is presented on the lineup card.

But those points have been taken away for mistaking the reds for the "Cards" (See caption)

Bronson working on a current 3 game losing streak. Never had a 4 game losing streak as a Red. First game back with Hanigan.

Good start!

Wow Hanigan. Never know what kind of difference shutting down running game makes. Next pitch could've been 2 run HR

_Sir_Charles_
05-12-2013, 02:19 PM
Accuracy is the difference. I actually think Mes has the faster release and the better arm.

Kc61
05-12-2013, 02:19 PM
Whatever anyone has to say about Mes, Hanigan is a tremendous thrower.

I see Lutz is playing today. Still don't get the rotation in LF. Paul doesn't field well but he does have an OBP over .380.

Captain Hook
05-12-2013, 02:20 PM
Hanigan is fast.

Anyone that just watched that last play would agree. Anyone watching him run the bases would wonder what in the world you're talking about.

Choo lined out to short btw.

SS played Choo right up the middle on that line drive. Good positioning although Choo hits it all over the place.

Reds might want to try a few long ones today.

NebraskaRed

Votto K's. He should have used a pink bat.

Nothing like having a leadoff double and leaving him stranded at second.

Weeks grounds out to Frazier. Solid comeback from the double. 0-0 it remains.

05-12-2013, 02:55 PM
How do you not start Lutz every day?

Because XP has an OBP over .380 and Robinson has an OBP over .440. obviously those won't stick up, but they're all swinging hot bats right now. Dusty deserves a lot of credit for getting them in the right positions to succeed since Heisey went down.

Reds should have all relievers except Ondrusek ready today with an off day tomorrow. I hope Dusty aggressively uses them if need be.

With this lead, worst idea would be to leave Arroyo in too long.

Not a consideration right now, but looking ahead.

Speaking of Corky...anybody know what's happened to him? I know he was DFA...but I'm assuming he'll be reassigned to Louisville, right?

Kc61
05-12-2013, 03:25 PM
With Arroyo at 47 pitches in the 4th...it might not come into play at all.

I view Bronson as 90 pitches. Then maybe yes, maybe no.

Also I think pitch count can be an overrated test for a starter who throws, say,7 or 8 innings, but that's for another thread someday.

_Sir_Charles_

Cozart's line drives this year have turned into ground balls. LD rate is down, GB rate is up.

FB rate fairly constant.

LD rate has now improved slightly but still way too low. Around 10 percent.

Young man has some pop in his bat and is IMO just an outstanding defender at short.

I'm less focused on batting order position than on Cozart's hitting issues this year. I would prefer Paul second but I am beyond that, it isn't happening.

Cozart doesn't fan much but his LD rate is just ridiculously low this year. It was about double the current rate last season. They need to work on this with him.

Cozart doesn't fan much but his LD rate is just ridiculously low this year. It was about double the current rate last season. They need to work on this with him.

You're right, the order isn't changing until the roster does (i.e., when Ludwick comes back). Doesn't make it any less frustrating to me though.

I'm not sure what Cozart's problem at the dish is, but he was struggling to reach first last year too. His on-base woes in 2013 aren't surprising.

Dusty with the quick hook, to the total agreement of Redszone I would guess.

For the arm-chair managers and gm's....there's ALWAYS more info than we know....


“He wasn’t feeling very well,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said. “He said all game it was a struggle for him, but this guy has big guts. He’ll give you what he has. He told us to keep an eye on him because he was about out of gas even though he didn’t have many pitches.”

Arroyo still snapped a three-game losing streak for his first victory since April 15.

“I didn’t have a whole lot of stuff,” Arroyo said. “I was grinding from inning one. Eighty-six, 87 [mph] was the top end for me. The wind was blowing at my back down on the field and up top it was blowing out. It’s a terrible mix for me because you can’t make the ball move down on the field. But if they hit it, it’s going to take off.”

“I was laboring every inning. It probably didn’t look like that. After the 6th, I told them those 65 pitches felt like 90 and to just be aware of that to have somebody ready to go. I knew I was getting away with some pitches I normally wouldn’t and that game could get out of hand quicker than you thought.”

Dusty did the right thing in pulling him and I love how honest Bronson is about his condition. VERY few players are like that.
