reds44
08-11-2006, 06:20 PM
Why does Royce have to be in the lineup? Castro is a better fielder and probably a better hitter. Rich is a better hitter for sure.

Edwin is in there so I am not going to complain too much though.

Because if Clayton isn't starting then he's a pretty bad backup, he can only play 1 spot, Castro can play 3.

Looks like Hatteberg has found a home at #2.

Biggest assets: working the pitcher, OBP, has the 3-4 hole open with Freel on first base, can make contact on the hit-and-run.

Biggest liabilities: borderline base clogging footspeed, candidate to ground into DP -- unless Freel is running on the pitch.

As much as Freel runs, Hat's not going to produce any more DP grounders than some of the other Reds' hitters.

One question remains -- who bats 2nd (assuming RA plays 1B) against southpaws? Dunn?

Oh no, why, why, why? Has Rich Aurilia been traded?

Doc. Scott
08-11-2006, 07:21 PM
I know Aurilia can't play SS any more, but I think Rich's bat outweighs Clayton's better range (hey, there's someone Royce is better than with the glove). The double nutpunch of Clayton and Castro starting day in and day out is killing me here.

Like I said, if it's a hacking offense, it'll get to him. If you're waiting on him to get himself in trouble by throwing a bunch of balls, you're sorely mistaken.

Lohse could probably improve if he had a slider that broke downward more than the one he throws. When the Reds traded for him Twins fans said he had started throwing that slider this year and it had been getting hit hard.

Terrible call at first base to get Utley, but it's in our favor. It looked like Chase got back easily from the Phillies' TV angle.

The announcers amended that commentary after the commercial by showing footage of Utley diving right into Scott Hatteberg's shoe instead of the base. They admit that it was the right call, actually. Interesting.

He is a nightmarishly bad announcer and the ratings aren't helping my/our case (although they have nothing to do with him or TV announcers in general).

Rounding up the kids:

AAA:Louisville leads the IL's best team by record, the Charlotte Knights (even though they employ Ruben Rivera), 2-1 in the fourth. Steve Kelly's pitching for the Bats. Superstar's hitting third.

AA:Tyler Pelland gives up a first-inning run to Tennessee.

High-A: 2-0 Fort Myers over Sarasota in the third.

Chris Coste is a 33-year-old career journeyman living the Crash Davis dream. He'd never played one inning in the bigs before 2006. The Phils kept him around because he hit well over .300 in his fill-in stint.

This all doesn't stop him from running afoul of the Lohsemeister. 6 Ks.

EdE cranks a bomb that goes a helluva lot farther than the other one, flipping his bat expertly. Opposing teams should get used to it.

Lohse pumps a 93-mph fastball past Utley, gets Chase to foul it off his foot, tempts him with a high fastball, fouls him off a couple of times, then fools him completely on junk in the dirt. Impressive.

Seven Ks and 81 pitches in six innings. 3-1 Reds after 6.
