And the error by Freel costs us a run.

Dunnomite
08-27-2006, 05:22 PM
I know Freel was charged with an error, but Marty said it went off a sprinkler head which changed the balls trajectory. ??? either way, lets get some runs on the board

I don't know why we walked Bonds. People are treating this guy like it's 2001.

Not this game specifically, but as I watched the double off the wall there I thought about something. Every time we have gotten into first place or had a big series win we have followed it up with a 5-6 game tank job. My fear is that we are seeing that once again unfold in front of us.

goreds2
08-27-2006, 05:38 PM
It looks as though the Reds are trying to hit a 5 run homer every at bat. The Giants are just hitting where the ball is pitched.

This team looks like they are playing scared to DEATH. I know most of the players on this team have never been in a playoff type situation, but they are playing "not to lose" rather than to win. Not a good sign

jesusfan

You could say that he crushed that ball. I would like to see the Reds score a run not generated by a home run...hasn't happened since Thursday night.

Here comes the 3-2 to Edwin...

EKURed

How does Grande know what opposing general managers wanted? He doesn't and that's OK. I just wish he didn't act like he did. It's times like these when the Reds are struggling that he REALLY gets on my nerves.

That at bat shows what's going on these days. BP stands there shaking his head, the catcher for the Giants yells and does a fist pump as they run off the field. The Giants are fired up, the Reds are just going through the motions. Someone on this team needs to get thrown out of the game or something to get everyone's attention. I am not talking about Narron either, I am talking about Griff, Dunn, Ross...someone, someone needs to step up and get this team fired up. Marty went on a rant today about how being 'tired' is no excuse, and that is exactly the way this team looks. They look beat.

That was something that EveryDay Eddie brought to this team. He brought spark, emotion...he got people fired up. We do not have that on this team right now and we need it now more than ever!!!!

jesusfan
08-27-2006, 06:14 PM
How is that hard to do when you are leading the wild card and only 2 GB of the division.... Chances like this don't come around every season!! Take advantage of them... I know every team wants it, I can accept getting beat, but we are beating ourselves!

Every team looks lifeless when they aren't hitting. I don't think it means the fire stopped burning.

This is absolutely not an excuse. I do not care if you are hitting or not, you can't only play like you want to win when you are hitting. Because they aren't hitting that makes the horrid defense ok? Absolutely not. They should be doing their best to play exceptional defense when they are hitting like this. I think they will be able to turn this around, but it's starting to get scary...but excusing their "lifelessness" because they aren't hitting is absurd

GOREDSGO32
08-27-2006, 06:22 PM
So if I post something pessimistic and we're blowing a big game here and could start a season ending slump, I guess I'll get flamed?

Lemme turn on stupid optomistic mode.

Hey its ONLY 4-0, at least its within 4 runs ... say, the local high school team down the street would be down 40-0 right now, so at least we can say that.

And hey, even if we lose every series from now on out, we STILL mathematically could be in the WC lead!

And hey, even if we don't make the playoffs, we finished better than other teams that didn't have a winning record!

Lets bring on the moral victory hype train boys.

I'm not saying that at all. I'm saying when you don't hit you look lifeless. You not on base, running the bases and making things happen. The bad plays in the field have pretty much been there all the time. Sorry if that was unclear.

When you are lazy in the field, don't run out ground balls, don't even attempt to make it to first on a passed ball..... that is lifeless, whether you are hitting or not

Griff, 1998 called, they want when you were good back.

Unfortunately, your sarcasm is just a bit misdirected since Griffey was responsible for the only run Friday night and he has made the only really good contact today with a 420 foot double. If that was the case, when were Phillips and Dunn any good?

GOREDSGO32
08-27-2006, 06:43 PM
Seriously, you can't ask for anything more. You had dominant back to back series wins, a major comeback the first game, and then you had your THREE best pitchers starting, Harang, Arroyo, and Lohse the next 3 games. What the heck else could you want? They just blew it, and its just going to be another key series you can look back on and say what if, if the Reds don't make the playoffs. End up tied with St. Louis, and 3 days later we're probably going to be 3 back. Just ridiculous.

joshnky
08-27-2006, 06:44 PM
Have faith! The games not over yet and we've some back before. How many times this season have the Reds looked done only to turn it on the last few innings and get the win? Lets go Dunn!

jesusfan
08-27-2006, 06:44 PM
405 foot Double for Edwin!

Cain at 105 pitches. Maybe one more inning? We stand a better chance against the pen than we do the starters.

Why not place a LEFTY in to turn the Giants lineup around?

In other news, Phils rained out, Padres lose. Even with a loss today Reds still lead in Wildcard. Maybe better times on the rest of the trip.

jaredbo
08-27-2006, 07:16 PM
I don't know about anyone else but these last 3 games have made me sick. This offense looks horrid!! They are taking a ton of strikes. I absolutely do not understand. How many times have they fouled out today?? It seems like every batter has done that. I don't know what everyone else thinks...but a total of 13 hits and 2 runs in the past 25 innings ( past two games plus the first 7 innings today) is unbelievable. The sad thing is, it does not get any better for the next week. I am scared, they better break out of this funk fairly quickly or their playoff hopes will be long gone!!

cincyreds06

keeganbrick
08-27-2006, 07:36 PM
Why exactly was Bill Bray brought out to pitch the 8th? I dont care that he gave up runs, but this is just more innings that he doesnt need to pitch in this situation. I would rather Ryan Franklin be used in these situations but it seems Narron likes to protect Franklin for some odd reason.
