We'll be at all 3 games this weekend. Tonight, sitting about 15 rows behind the Reds dugout, tomorrow, 1st row above the BP and Sunday...not sure yet, but somewhere good :)

Got bets all over w/ coworkers on the series. Go Reds!

Just saw that Billy getting the callup...but not meeting team til home on Monday. :cry:


The clouds here look ominous, but it's going to be fine all weekend. Oppressively hot, but not enough rain to cause an issue.

I'll do it.

Jay Bruce 2/4 with 5 RBI batting 4th last game.....scored 10 runs

Potential 7th inning matchup outweighs the first 6 innings.

Doesn't matter...Rockies JV team tonight.

Reds 7
Rockies 3

I hope Ludwick has a big game. That said I would have left well enough alone with the lineup from Wednesday.

I'm not getting a good vibe about this game... pitcher with potential lingering ailment, sitting half their studs on offense, our workhorse on the mound.... it all has the makings of an easy victory, and we know how those usually go.

RedlegJake
08-30-2013, 09:07 PM
baseball is impossible to figure. I had the Reds the favorite in those first two games with the Birds and losing to Wainwright. Never works out the way you figure it. Beat an ace and the kid you never heard of stops your team cold. Or a .188 hitting utility man hits 2 homers off your ace and beats you. Never seems to fail. Of course, sometimes the same baseball mystery works for you, too.

RedlegJake
08-30-2013, 09:10 PM
In 4th in Pitt Bucs lead 4-0, Miller at 70 pitches already, Liriano breezing. Nats trail 2-1 in 6th. DBacks start an hour after the Reds.

Reds Freak
08-30-2013, 09:32 PM
I thought Manship was scheduled to go tonight with de la Rosa tomorrow?

_Sir_Charles_
08-30-2013, 09:36 PM
That's what ESPN had, but they just had a different matchup for the series on Fox.

DeLaRosa tonight, third game was Nicasio. I missed who the middle game was. Pretty sure it wasn't Manship.

~edit~ It was De La Rosa, Nicasio then CHATWOOD.

Tom Servo
08-30-2013, 09:38 PM
Manship was scheduled for tonight, but they got news that Tyler Chatwood would be ready to return Sunday so they bumped Manship.

_Sir_Charles_

Miller looked horrible

RedlegJake

BP knocks one into RF off Blackmon's glove nd ends up on 2nd. Error.

_Sir_Charles_
08-30-2013, 09:45 PM
YES! Off the RF'ers glove. Clear E

RedlegJake
08-30-2013, 09:45 PM
That was a lousy fielding play right there - he just completely blew that

_Sir_Charles_
08-30-2013, 09:46 PM
Miller just now pulled. 2 on, 5 in.

RedlegJake
08-30-2013, 09:47 PM
Votto out 4-3. BP to third. 2 down

RedlegJake
08-30-2013, 09:47 PM
Ludwick fly out to center.

RedlegJake
08-30-2013, 09:48 PM
0-0 mid 1. Come on good Bronson.

RedlegJake
08-30-2013, 09:49 PM
In wildcard news the Nats still trail 2-1 in 7th.

RedlegJake
08-30-2013, 09:50 PM
And Dickerson leads off first pitch triple between right and center

RedlegJake
08-30-2013, 09:51 PM
first lead off hit this season for Bronson - thats amazing

_Sir_Charles_
08-30-2013, 09:52 PM
Weird stat there. That was the first lead off hit against Bronson all year.

RedlegJake
08-30-2013, 09:53 PM
LaMahieu doubles. 1-0

_Sir_Charles_
08-30-2013, 09:54 PM
I thought this kid was with the Cubs? DJ Lemahieu

RedlegJake
08-30-2013, 09:54 PM
well this is not a good beginning. Tulo up.

Tom Servo
08-30-2013, 09:55 PM
Be better, Bronson.

RedlegJake
08-30-2013, 09:55 PM
Hanigan nails DJ at third!

RedlegJake
08-30-2013, 09:55 PM
Go ahead run on Hanny!

RedlegJake
08-30-2013, 09:56 PM
That was stupid! (running not the walk) Tulo walks

RedlegJake
08-30-2013, 09:56 PM
first walk in 4 weeks for Bronson

RedlegJake
08-30-2013, 09:57 PM
And a DP...Bronson and Hanigan turn a disaster into a decent inning

Tom Servo
08-30-2013, 09:57 PM
I thought this kid was with the Cubs? DJ Lemahieu
Are you thinking of former All-Star Bryan LaHair?

RedlegJake
08-30-2013, 09:59 PM
Mes extend lead to 3-1 against Nats, Pirates still up 5-0 in 6th

_Sir_Charles_
08-30-2013, 10:00 PM
Are you thinking of former All-Star Bryan LaHair?

Nope. He USED to be with the Cubs. Just a couple years ago. It just seems that stigma has stuck to him. Kind of like that horrible smell that you can never get out of your car...it just lingers. :laugh:

RedlegJake
08-30-2013, 10:02 PM
Jay walks.

RedlegJake
08-30-2013, 10:03 PM
Frazier 5-4 but he beats the throw for a force.

RedlegJake
08-30-2013, 10:06 PM
Cozie singles into right, Frazier to third

perfect sac for Bronson, men on 2d and 3d, 2 out

RedlegJake
08-30-2013, 10:09 PM
time for Choo Choo to Choo Choo

RedlegJake
08-30-2013, 10:10 PM
pop fly into left to the SS. Choo is hapless against lefties

Going 4 for 3 for the game is one heck of a night. Might even be a record-breaking night.

Ludwick hits into 5-4-3 double paly. Phillips to 3rd

Tom Servo

So's Joey.

Disappointing inning right there.

_Sir_Charles_
08-30-2013, 10:28 PM
Crud. Jay K's to end the threat.

RedlegJake
08-30-2013, 10:28 PM
Yeah that was a race between a stegosaurus and a brontosaurus. And Bruce Ks. still 1-1.

_Sir_Charles_
08-30-2013, 10:29 PM
Bottom of 8th...5-0 Pirates

OnBaseMachine
08-30-2013, 10:32 PM
Ludwick isn't really the answer in LF this year. Shoulder surgery is bad for anyone, especially a 34 year old. I wish the Reds had went after Byrd.

RedlegJake

08-30-2013, 10:36 PM

_Sir_Charles_
08-30-2013, 10:36 PM
That is NOT a horrible centerfielder. I refuse to buy it.

RedlegJake
08-30-2013, 10:36 PM
3-1 play retires LaMahieu. 1-2-3 inning.

RedlegJake
08-30-2013, 10:37 PM
first time ever in Coors for Choo.

RedlegJake
08-30-2013, 10:38 PM
5-0 Pittsburgh just went final

kaldaniels
08-30-2013, 10:39 PM
That is NOT a horrible centerfielder. I refuse to buy it.

The metrics suggest so strongly otherwise. A play that looks like a great play for a guy that makes poor jumps is often caught easily by an excellent fielder. What I'm saying is it is hard to make a conclusion either way just watching at home.

_Sir_Charles_
08-30-2013, 10:39 PM
5-0 Pittsburgh just went final

That was a VERY quick game. Under 2 hours?

~edit~ Sorry. Under 3 hours.

The Manigan just missed another RBI hit with a hooking foul ball...but then gets a hit to right anyway!

2-1 good guys.

Arroyo with another perfect sacrifice

_Sir_Charles_
08-30-2013, 10:47 PM
Bronson really doesn't get the credit he deserves. One of the most well-rounded ballplayers around. Very good at his craft.

Smart & crafty pitcher, excellent defender, swift runner, solidly fundamental bunter, etc, etc, etc.

Very....old school.

_Sir_Charles_

Tom Servo

De La Rosa seems to have Choo's #.

RedlegJake
08-30-2013, 10:50 PM
delaRosa is a lefty...hence he has Choo's number

_Sir_Charles_
08-30-2013, 10:52 PM
De La Rosa is 29. Choo is 17. You're both wrong. You could say he "owns" Choo....but then we get into slavery and it just goes downhill from there.

RedlegJake
08-30-2013, 10:53 PM
Tulo is overrated...all he does is get hits and home runs

08-30-2013, 10:54 PM

I know the answer. But seeing if anyone else knows.

What were Bronson's career numbers at Coors before tonight? I looked and couldn't find them.

I had hoped somehow they could work the rotation so he didn't have to pitch here. Did not seem like even a decent chance he would pitch well here.

What were Bronson's career numbers at Coors before tonight? I looked and couldn't find them.

You were looking in the wrong place. They're in the upper stratosphere.

Problem I see is bullpen usage. This looks like the kind of series where runs will be scored, starters may not work that long. Potential is for Reds to burn through the bullpen.

This game is still winnable but Dusty needs to avoid going overboard using his pen. Need them reasonably fresh for the Cards next week.

My nightmare is Choo leaving and Dusty still around to fill the #1 and #2 slots next year. All of that is retracted if the Reds win the WS (stop laughing people).

Although to his defense, there aren't any good options in that scenario. This offense is going to be gawd-awful without Choo next season.

I was always a reds and baseball fan, but this season is when I really fell in love with baseball....im still haunted by what I think that team could have done if they had actually made the playoffs. Not positive, but I believe every year since 96 wins would have them in the playoffs.

Hard to assess an offense as a whole based on one game.The offense has been a problem much longer than just one game, though.

They have talent, but they are way too prone to to extended periods where they absolutely can't do anything - to the point where middling journeyman pitchers can completely shut them down.
