As I have said in other threads, the Phillies are coming in thinking they can beat anyone because of last nights game. The Reds better have their A game tonight. It is currently 2-0 Phils in the bottom of the 1st. :(

Note:

The Reds went 0-6 after Dunn's dramatic homer against Cleveland. The Reds are currenlty 0 -2 after Ross's big homer.

keeganbrick

Tell me why you swing at the first pitch if your name is Royce Clayton. You're horrible and this pitcher has no control but you swing at 3 pitches and miss all 3. :angry:

BoCcc2832
08-12-2006, 08:42 PM
Before the inning started, Chris Welsh mentioned that Scott Mathieson had a good fastball (94 mph), not much of a breaking ball, and a so-so changeup. Hmm, who does that sound like? It sounds like Homer Bailey to me. That is exactly why Bailey should not be up yet until he develops those pitches. Sure he might strikeout some players with his high heat, but like Mathieson so far, he will get smacked around.

JTMONEY

Uh, Bailey has a 12-6 curveball and a good change up, he just struggles with his control on them sometimes.

Ps- his fastball is 96-98.

JTMONEY

mathieson sac bunt moves the runners to second and third 1 out

what do u kn ow EZ blows it again

lo ryder
08-12-2006, 08:50 PM
Come on Narron, you have to get EZ out of this game while the team still has a chance. This is getting to the point of complete ineptness.:bang:

michalak into the game for EZ

Come on Narron, you have to get EZ out of this game while the team still has a chance. This is getting to the point of complete ineptness.:bang:
EZ never should have never started this game. Michalak should have just started and we could have went from there. If Michalak doesnt last 3 innings our bullpen is going to be shot for this whole road trip.

JTMONEY
08-12-2006, 08:54 PM
michalak has looked impressive in the minors with a 2.99 ERA and a 9-5 record but lets see what he can do in the big leagues

JTMONEY
08-12-2006, 08:55 PM
michalak gets his first out

keeganbrick
08-12-2006, 08:55 PM
Michalak throws about 85 mph so lets hope his control is on tonight.

JTMONEY

michalak lookin good 2nd inning over 5-4 reds

Sham

Seriously, EZ needs to go to AAA. He needs to work it out outside of a pennant race.

EE grounds out to third 0 for 2 on the night

keeganbrick
08-12-2006, 08:59 PM
AAA or used out of the pen for mop up duties. But that again leaves us with no answer for another starter unless you're looking at him now.

Despite EZ's struggles, it's good to see the Reds bats wake up tonight......after only having 8 hits in 14 innings last night, I was disappointed in the offense.....but tonight, it seems like it's all coming together.....if only we could get Griffey and Dunn going again.....

jesusfan
08-12-2006, 09:27 PM
Griffey is just terrible... It's rediculous really, just imagine if we had a real 12 million dollar player... not a .240 hitting slow footed Griffey... I know he'll make the occasional sensational play, but for the most part he's struggled badly the entire year... I feel bad for the guy

JTMONEY

jesusfan
08-12-2006, 09:30 PM
Griffey is playing with NO confidence right now! And, im tired of hearing about him needing to talk to his dad... He's not in little league, he needs to step up and be the Hall of Famer he is, Edmonds is the same age and playing better than Griffey!

JTMONEY

Because of the way he runs people have always said he looks lazy. I agree that he needs some time off he looks worn down, but that's what happens when you're 37 and not on steriods.

keeganbrick
08-12-2006, 09:33 PM

Jefferson24
08-12-2006, 09:34 PM
It's time to sit some of these guys a few days in a row to get their attention. Too many strikeouts and easy outs. How many times can we afford to have opportunities and just keep coming up empty. It seems to be the same few guys. You know the ones I'm talking about.

JTMONEY
08-12-2006, 09:35 PM
michalak looking real good for the reds good thing we called him up or we'd have someone like franklin in the game right now so he could blow just like our bullpen did last nightand also like EZ has done for his last two starts

REDSEER

There's no doubt in my mind that Junior is tired after the marathon last night, but IMO his bat speed has been down this entire year.....He doesn't seem to be able to catch up to that high fastball that he loves to swing at....when pitchers pitch him low he can hit it hard because that speeds up his bat.....

A few days off and I think he'll be alright and ready to go on another hot streak....

jesusfan
08-12-2006, 09:36 PM
He'll definitely be off tomorrow... I'd imagine we'll see Hollandworth in RF with Freel in center tomorrow....

JTMONEY

RedsFanBrooklyn
08-12-2006, 09:58 PM
Griff needs a change of scenery ... in the lineup.

Try him at the 5 spot till he gets his eye back. He's a rally killer right now while he's scuffling.

Billy_Bearcat
08-12-2006, 09:58 PM
WOW! Nice play EE. Glad you got taken out for defense last night.

JTMONEY
08-12-2006, 09:58 PM
i am really not liking griffey in the three spot right now because he is doing absolutely nothin... and when freel and hatte are getting on in front of him hes either striking out or grounding into a double play which doesnt give the heart of our order many outs to work with to get some runs in... IMO we need to move him behind dunn in the sixth spot so they cant walk dunn and have nobody behind him.. because if u give him time griffey can get back on track and knockin some runs in which will help a lot down the stretch winning the division or wild card and on into the playoffs

keeganbrick
08-12-2006, 09:58 PM
Another great play for EE, this means Narron will take him out in the 8th inning again.

Billy_Bearcat
08-12-2006, 10:00 PM
Griff should be batting 6th at best.

jesusfan
08-12-2006, 10:00 PM

jesusfan
08-12-2006, 10:00 PM
well... EE pulls Hatte off 1st... 1st and 2nd 1 down

Billy_Bearcat
08-12-2006, 10:01 PM

michalak is done, i would think with his spot coming up third in the top of the eighth...excellent outing...let's see him on Thursday instead of EZ

This guy has done a real good job tonight. So, now is it Cormier to face Howard and then Coffey? Is that how it plays out? I think you get Michalak out now and pat him on the back for the tremendous...and I do mean tremendous....job he did tonight.

George Grande with another great call....."hit to right. that ball will stay in the park." That ball was a blooper that barely got out of the infield. Freel ran as fast as he could towards the infield to catch it and end the inning.

I guess you're right. As bad as GG is with his accuracy atleast he keeps you on your toes with his off the wall calls.

Even with Michalek on deck, I still think Clayton should've sacrificed Phillips to third.

Clayton should have been PH for by Rich. But Narron would never do that.

RedsFanBrooklyn

My confidence in Clayton successfully sacrificing, despite his 112 years in the league, is very low. If only because he makes my blood boil.

EKURed

I agree. And then you give Freel with 2 hits already tonight the chance to drive him in if Michalek doesn't.

Jefferson24

I like them leaving Michalak in there. Let him give you a reason to pull him.

People are still waiting to jump on Michalak if he screws up.

REDSEER

No matter what happens this inning, I can't fault Narron if Michalak blows up this inning.....I agree with riding the hot hand, who is Michalak at this point, and staying away from the cold hand (our whole bullpen)........

lawnboy33
08-12-2006, 10:29 PM
I agree! I wouldnt trust clayton in any clutch situation! Rich should be in there at least he has a bat!!!

So what exactly is wrong with Cormier, is he hurt or what?

Redhook
08-12-2006, 10:31 PM
man, that ball was beat-boxed by howard. for how hard that was hit, we should be thankful it doesn't count for two runs.

GOREDSGO32
08-12-2006, 10:31 PM
It's not Michalak's fault, its EZE's. If we would have put Michalak in the game in the first place it would be 6-1.

JTMONEY
08-12-2006, 10:31 PM
thats only one run for michalak in this game through 5and 2/3

RedsFanBrooklyn
08-12-2006, 10:31 PM
Not much else to say ... the Bullpen is so bad the manager is simply unwilling to go there.

Michalek is done.

Billy_Bearcat
08-12-2006, 10:31 PM
Ugh. I again blame the change in momentum on the blown opportunity in the top of the inning. Michalak did his job....time to find someone else.

keeganbrick
08-12-2006, 10:32 PM
Where did that pitch miss?

BoCcc2832
08-12-2006, 10:32 PM
with one more out recorded, Michalak will qualify for a "quality start"...don't start jumping him just yet

JTMONEY
08-12-2006, 10:32 PM
dont blow it narron

EKURed
08-12-2006, 10:33 PM
He was gassed at the end of last inning. He is on 3 days' rest. This is ridiculous. Narron is absolutely unbelievable. He has got to be one of the three worst managers in baseball. They have a better record this year because of a combination of things....better players and a weaker league.

keeganbrick

If something is wrong with Cormier there is really nothing Narron could have done. The only other lefty is Bray and he should not see any time tonight.

GOREDSGO32
08-12-2006, 10:36 PM
Michalak has shut up the skeptics IMO, he deserves a shot in the rotation over the terrible Ramirez. Send Ramirez down tomorrow.

Somebody tell Grande EE didn't make an error tonight. The pitcher did...not EE. Don't give Narron any ideas...

He bats .35 points higher off righties. I know the percentages didnt work out well but I dont blame Narron for this one.
