I think the consensus is.....

Edwin in=good lineup
Edwin out=what the **** is Narron doing

Reds Freak
08-07-2006, 06:44 PM
Uh oh...anytime this board agrees with Narron's lineups it seems like the Reds get shutout. But then I look at who's hitting in the number 9 hole for the other team and that seems highly improbable.

Other good things about this lineup:

Dunn batting 2.
Aurilia not batting cleanup.
Freel leads off.
Everyone but Lizard batting ahead of Clayton (Clayton not batting 1 or 2).

Lets go Reds... need to set the tone for the series tonight. WIth each win of which ever team in this series, more and more pressure gets placed on the other team. I am still upset that the game from yesterday slipped away, talk about a momentum builder, but, it can all be picked back up tonight. The over/under on this game is 10.5 runs. I see that total being picked up in the first 5 innings.

One other note, Albert scares the crap out of me, but not as much with Belliard and Duncan hitting ahead of him. (Now Belliard and Duncan combine for 7 hits and about 25 total bases)

Tony Cloninger
08-07-2006, 07:46 PM
Good to see that JN is seeing RA go into a slump....early enough...in that slump, instead of wating until he goes 4 for 30..or something like that.

08-07-2006, 08:05 PM
We're gonna need to score some tonight with the Lizard on the mound for us. He seems to always have that one bad inning that puts us in the hole.Yet there are times he's sharp. I hope tonight he's sharp.

UGADaddy
08-07-2006, 08:06 PM
Castro > Clayton

Redlegs Record 57-54

Agreed. Also would like to see DRoss (OPS over 1.0 is best on team) behind the plate, but I guess we need JV because of language barrier with Lizard or righty/lefty advantage?? And I hate all the negativity towards Aurilia. I know EdE's getting hot, but doesn't defense count for something anymore??

keeganbrick
08-07-2006, 08:13 PM
Yea, I would love to see Ross in there more. Has anyone noticed how Ross seems to be pulling off the ball ever since he came off the DL?

At this rate, maybe tickets should be 3/4 off for the rest of the series. Since we have been getting 3/4 pitching the last 2 weeks, it only makes sense.

After the first 4 doubles the next Cardinal batter should have had a hole put in his helmet.

Yep. They look way too comfortable. I like EZ, every pitcher has a game like this though. Seeing how he responds will be interesting.

I saw how he responded, and I didn't like it.

But I get what you are saying. He's got to shake it off.

Narron should have started Aurillia

:evil:

fisch11
08-07-2006, 08:33 PM
The way Freel, Dunn, Jr. looked against Weaver, I don't doubt that we will score 5 or 6 runs....but can we hold St. Louis to 5 for the rest of the game? That's the million dollar question. Hopefully, EZ pulls through like Milton and Lohse have done by getting rocked in the 1st and throwing up zeros through 6.

bucknutdet
08-07-2006, 08:34 PM
Well maybe we'll win the next 3, but tomorrow night's pitching matchup is far from favorable.

GOREDSGO32
08-07-2006, 08:36 PM
HR. 6-0 St Louis. Fans who paid half price was still half too much.

And as Marty is saying, he's right on - we just still don't have enough starting pitching to compete all year long, plain and simple.

keeganbrick
08-07-2006, 08:36 PM
What do you do? Do you just leave him in there and rest the bullpen for the rest of the series?

MaineRed

OOOOOUUUUUUCCCCCHHHHHH!

Wayne Krivsky and Tim Kremchek are meeting with the media right now too they just announced, wtf? John Fay had to leave the booth with Marty .. something about Majeski apparently.

MaineRed
08-07-2006, 08:38 PM
The Haynes thing was a Chris Welsh quote for anyone not watching the game.

I think I'll stick to WLW tonight so I can learn more details about the Majewski issue.

GOREDSGO32

Inning ova.

MaineRed
08-07-2006, 08:46 PM
Well, now we know why we got Franklin. Who in the world would the Reds be bringing in right now if Franklin were not available?

I'm not saying WK knew we needed him tonight but good thing we got him. We'd have NO bullpen for the rest of this series if we did not trade for Franklin. Do we have anyone who could go more than 2 innings? If one person covered two, that would still leave 5 innings. Basically the entire bullpen would of been used tonight.

We might get killed but if Franklin can give us 5, even if he gets beat up, it might be a big key looking back.

I think we'd be in for some serious trouble if we didn't have a long man right now.

SanDiegoRed
08-07-2006, 08:47 PM
The starting pitching has sure gone south....Arroyo needs to revert to form and someone else needs to step up if this team has any chance at the post season...

keeganbrick
08-07-2006, 08:50 PM
When something like this happens I find myself wondering maybe it wouldnt be so bad if Bailey came up to save this team and was our #3 starter when we made the playoffs.

Then my other half says no, dont you dare rush him.

On a side note, we need baserunners stop swinging at the first 2 pitches you see.

GOREDSGO32
08-07-2006, 08:55 PM
Face it .. this was inevitable. We didn't have a very good 5th starter all season, we knew at the start Dave Williams was meat, then Ramirez saved that spot by pitching much better than expected for a while - but then Claussen fell apart and we tried to replace with Mays and spot starters, now Lohse.

Arroyo having a major career year took us as far as we could go, a few games over .500 - but we had to know that was coming back down to earth. Milton has been the worst signing in recent Reds history, the worst investment of money ever - we are just riding that sinking ship until its gone. Ramirez we had to know wasn't doing to stand up. The starting pitching was the only thing holding up our season, and with the bullpen being consistently bad - and the offense known for being inconsistently bad sometimes, we had to have the pitching to stay even decent. Now that has come back to earth, we're done. Even in a poor NL, one of the poorest ever we're not doing well enough right now to make the playoffs.

There's not much you can do when you are handicapped by two overpaid junk players like Milton and Griffey - and you rely on DFA players and other teams player dumps as your goto guys. Sure they may step up for a while, but eventually they come back to earth .. thats what we're dealing with here.

I wonder who on this pitching staff Krivsky will really want back next year.He may have to pick a few and then crash and burn the whole staff, really build his own from the beginning rather than using other teams junk out of desperation. Bray, Arroyo, Coffey,Harang and maybe Lizard may be the only 5 to return...

Where is the agressiveness at? Down 6, I don't see how you can watch a so many third strikes. Freel is even showing a lack of energy on the bases. This team needs somebody to make something happen. They are very very flat right now. Then again, being down 5 in the first inning will do that to a team.

major harris

Actually Dunn has seen something like over 500 (2000) more pitches than Hatte. And last time I checked BP(14??) was 2nd but Hatte(14??) was right behind him.

I'd rather see an out when you take the bat off of your shoulders.

this is embarassing. I am not going to throw in the towel, but so far this effort is pathetic. A couple of nice plays in the field by Freel though.

Stepped away and the Cardinals have played add on again. 9-1 to the bottom of the 4th. This one has gotten away in a hurry.

If we can get something going the Cards pitching is not that good and we could score enough runs off of them. Maybe Freel's play will spark us.

Actually Dunn has seen something like over 500 (2000) more pitches than Hatte. And last time I checked BP(14??) was 2nd but Hatte(14??) was right behind him.

The only difference is Hatteberg is much more constructive with working the count to get a pitch he can hit. Dunn just won't swing at pitches outside the strike zone. He doesn't really put himself in better position by doing it, and sometimes he will take too many close ones that will come back to bite him. Working the count and taking pitches are two different things.

And Weaver strikes out the side...yes I said Weaver.

Alot - Alittle. Top 5 we go.

I was making the point that Hatteberg has not seen more pitches than anyone in the big leagues. I am not trying to make this into another Dunn argument.

I wasn't saying you were. Just making a statement related to the subject. You can calm down. I'm not trying to start an argument.

It's officially a good old fashioned butt whoopin' now. 10-1 Cards.

I guess we were due for one of these since we have won 6 of 8 against them this year.

Here's to a dramatic come from the grave victory.

Even if we held the Cardinals to 5 runs after the 1st inning, we still would be losing by 4. The offense, defense, and pitching we all flat tonight. Hopefully this doesn't hang over to tomorrow. Still need to take 3 of 4.

This has certainly been a discouraging game but there are still 3 games left in the series and another 3 next week. I went into the series hoping for 3 out of 4 and thats still in reach. Besides, we let the Cards waste all their offensive output for the series tonight while we saved our up for the other three games. At least I hope thats how it works.

well the cards tonight for a team had and out standing BA. of .395 the reds on the other hand came in at .228. But here is the simple fact. Dunn can not watch the third strike come across the plate with out swinging. He also can not keep swinging at ball that are thrown 59 feet. Griffey same thing. He thinks cause he's a superstar they won't call that outside strike wrong! how many times has it watched it go by this year? We need to hit! Our pitching can suck but if we can't hit we can't win! This team is centered arround offence not anything else. And the offence hasn't shown up in some time.

I really think we can take the next three. We have to at least get a split.

Mr. Milton, pitch AWAY from the big first baseman tomorrow......PLEASE? :pray:
