With Moose back and batting 4th. Reds management with a big F U to fans. So? Where you gonna go Reds fans?

Glad to see Friedl getting the start in LF against the RHP.

Thank goodness David Bell found another person who has hit less than his weight this year to play first base.

It's hard to believe they're trying to win games at this point.

Was hoping Solano would be back. Not Moose. Reds better win tonight. Dunn and Minor going Sat. and Sun.

Moustakas in clean-up? Bell cannot be watching the Reds play.

Wouldn’t mind seeing Barrero having a little protection behind him for once? Not that there is much to offer, but Little Papy ain’t it.

It might come down to who wants to win these games less.

Pirates are 2-8 over last ten, but a decent home record overall, 25-31.

Just lost two of three to Red Sox in Pittsburgh.

This is the battle to stay out of the cellar. Bucs currently in fifth place, trail fourth place Reds by one game (two in the loss column).

Brilliant diving catch by Almora on line drive in the gap.

Quite a play.

Senzel homers. Nice to see. 2-0 Reds.

I’ve been wondering when he would show some power again. I assume they’ve been working on it.

Weak grounders, broken bats, pitch efficiency and stellar defense. Attributes in a pitcher than I’m in love with. Ashcraft is so fun to watch.

You could probably do worse than TJ Friedl for a 5th OFer.

1 hour and 15 minutes and already into the 6th inning. Another reason to like Ashcraft starts.

Interesting, didn't realize that. Maybe he's just off tonight. Also, pretty sure you're not supposed to run a guy towards home in a pickle.

Interesting on Farmer, OPS was .732 last year and .714 this year.

Yet his wRC+ was 91 last year and is 98 this year.

WRC+ is league adjusted, just shows how much NL hitters have declined relatively to last season.

Farmer knocks in go ahead run on 0-2 pitch. For an average hitter he gets his share of timely hits. Reds up one run going bottom 8.

Sanmartin wouldn't look out of place on the mound at Williamsport this weekend. But seems like he could be a valuable left handed piece out of the pen going forward.

Yeah, RSM emerging as a viable bullpen arm has been one of the very few bright spots this season.

His stats as a starter vs his stats as a reliever are night and day.

Kuhnel does exactly what one would expect. Blows the save and perilously close to losing the game.

Reds Freak
08-19-2022, 10:48 PM
Kuhnel doesn't belong in the back end of games, but I'm not sure why they had Almora playing in the right field bleachers.

4 pages long is rather impressive for late-season Reds vs Pirates.

Well done all.

Reds with a one-run lead on the road is perilous. They need about a six run lead.

Bases loaded for Bucs.

That's a pretty pathetic loss. Ashcraft hit a bit of a wall then you have to turn to Kuhnel and Detweiler in the 9th. Yikes.

TheBigLebowski
08-19-2022, 10:59 PM
And they walk it off.

Kuhnel with a 1 run lead in the 9th was a horrible idea.

Just clean this place out next year. New coaches, hopefully a better roster. One that doesn’t feature 10 guys or more that no one else would touch with a 10 foot pole. Dump bleach all over this and start the bleep over. This is disgusting.

Like Cowboy said, if a lefty in the pen can’t get Gamel out, what’s the point?

Roy Tucker

Glad I didn’t watch the whole game. The bottom of the 9th was over pretty fast.

TheBigLebowski
08-19-2022, 11:02 PM
Maybe Smithers will reassign Kuhnel, Strickland and Detwiler to being Head Bee Guys.

Not sure what the crisis is for Bell using Diaz as the closer. He’s clearly the closet of the future….why not get his used to it this year? And don’t give me the BS of “it doesn’t matter, if bad guys give up the lead in the 8th”

now that is a perfect loss. ashcraft pitches great (only thing i cared about tonight) and they still lost. gonna need a nice draft spot to make up for this effery of a season.

Bell's been using him in the most critical situations. He was trying to keep the lead. I don't have an issue with it.

Frankly, nothing is going to prepare Diaz more for the closer's role than coming in the game for the toughest scenarios.

08-19-2022, 11:45 PM
Kuhnel has choked every close opportunity he's had. He's just not very good, barely fit for middle relief or mop up, def. should be nowhere near the last inning of a one run lead.

i think the reds should use a slow-pitch softball pitcher as their #5 starter. listen, if you're going to tank, tank hard or go home.

Disagree. Closer is the closer for a reason. Does his brother come in for the 7th or 8th?

I hope “Lose for the Crews” doesn’t fail as badly as the “No wins for the Senz” campaign did.
