I was primarily a second baseman and also played third and short so I need to be paid for all 3 positions

This is why I'm beginning to like Bauer more and more. Mahle is cruising right along and Bell automatically removes him after 6. As the old saying goes, 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it.' Our bullpen is becoming predictable. Mahle was in a zone.

exactly. you lead 2-0 vs bieber headed to the 7th, you can't hurt yourself like the reds did in the 7th. self-inflicted wounds. could the reds still win? of course. but they would basically have it put away by now if they didn't crap the bed in the top of the 7th.

They have been shutout thru 6 innings by a righty, so the theory is keep them batting lefty. Not a bad strategy, but execution was highly suspect on the pitching and defense.

I just can't get too mad about this one if they don't come back. It was a 2-0 lead after 6, not exactly "in the bag" territory.

Walks haunt, and errors do to. Need to clean it up.

LOL people blaming the bullpen. who thought it was a good idea to put in a guy who shouldn't even be on a roster like jones? where is garrett? and the previous inning, both runs were unearned because we have a utility player as our "starting shortstop" who can't catch the baseball.

yep, they are going to piss this game away for sure.

They are going to walk this game away. It would be nice if the Reds could find relief pitchers who could throw strikes consistently. They just get the guys who can throw 100mph. And now Reyes gets a fastball and hits it out. The price paid for not being able to throw strikes. Frustrated.

I can give managers a little leeway when it comes to their decisions because they're also working with information that we have no idea about.

Maybe one of the relievers is working on a migraine. Perhaps Mahle came back and told Bell "I'm done, that's all I got." We have no idea what kind of conversations they're having.
