You can tell Bell is still calling the shots in the wings.

I doubt he called for 2 walks and a wild pitch.

Great work Thorton, throw a wild pitch when the guy is trying to give you a free out by bunting.

Can we just put a ban on David Bell complaining or demanding his firing? Regardless of where you land on the matter, it should not be every 3rd post in game threads. Just stop. Take it to the Bell thread.

I like Welsh as an announcer, but man, he was just talking up Thornburg as a great find, and that's why Strop became expendable :lol:

This is what happens when the regular season is your bullpen tryout camp.

Reds loaded up with “bounce back” guys and this has been extended spring training.

Raley, Jones, Strop, Thornburg, Biddle, etc.

What happened tonight is the key moment in this game. The Reds were competing well and playing pretty well. Then Bell escalates a minor issue and it's like somebodty flipped a switch. Seems pretty germane to this game thread.

Ross is an idiot, and this is a huge self-own.

There is almost zero reasons to suspect the pitch to Rizzo was intentional. But if Ross admits that the Cubs believed it was, then it absolutely means that the pitch at Shogo was intentional payback for the perceived wrong-doing. If A, then B, he can't have it both ways.

And it means the umps boofed it in the heat of the moment, and it basically dares MLB to put things right now that he's admitted that he (and his Chief Lieutenant in Buttheadedness Rizzo) are guilty and got away with it.

David Ross said Tejay Antone was "sending a message." "We're not happy when somebody throws 97 behind Rizz." Adds, "That's not a slip, that's not a miss, that's not a grab-some-rosin slip. That was intentional. There's no doubt in my mind about that."

I met Gravey a few times backstage at wrestling shows, and always figured he'd be good at this job if he wanted to do it (spoiler alert: I also knew that about Casey).... but I agree that LeCure is really really really good, and I was just expecting Graves to hold down the fort.

Instead, he's killing it.
