"Productive out" by Linden gets Finley to 3rd.

keeganbrick
09-06-2006, 01:40 PM
Wow, I hope Kim gets his pitches down in the zone.

I guess Sun Woo wasn't a crowd attraction...

dabvu2498

Another productive out.

texasdave
09-06-2006, 01:43 PM
sac fly hillenbrand.........it doesnt look like they have started letting any of the fans in yet..heeh

jesusfan
09-06-2006, 01:43 PM
Sweeney flies to left... Let's score about 10...

texasdave
09-06-2006, 01:44 PM
kim allows one run in the first and his ERA goes down...not a good sign

Danny Serafini
09-06-2006, 01:44 PM
You know you've had a tough time when you pitch an inning, give up a run and your ERA drops by over a point.

Bah! I'm seconds too slow!

texasdave
09-06-2006, 01:45 PM
how sad is it when you pull your infield in to cut off the run at the plate.....with one out in the first...geez

jesusfan
09-06-2006, 01:46 PM
Freel flies to center... 1 down

jesusfan
09-06-2006, 01:47 PM
Royce Flies to left...

jesusfan
09-06-2006, 01:49 PM
RIch grounds to 3rd... easy 1-2-3 inning for SF...

indyred
09-06-2006, 01:49 PM
they showed a shot of the wall where Griffey hurt his foot on Bonds homer...cleat mark rips are still there...could be a nice piece to sell at redsfest....

texasdave
09-06-2006, 01:49 PM
someone tell the reds its getaway day for the giants...not for them....they go meekly on nine pitches

lawnboy33
09-06-2006, 01:50 PM
They will make this pitcher look like a cy young winner! Why is clayton batting 2nd??

Team Clark
09-06-2006, 01:52 PM
:laugh: Soon Woo Gone....

jesusfan
09-06-2006, 01:52 PM
Good Job Kim... Durham blasts one!

texasdave
09-06-2006, 01:52 PM
ive seen enough...ray durham takes kim deep 2 zip giants...get the bully working

jesusfan
09-06-2006, 01:53 PM
The Giants will make Kim look like... well, Sun Woo Kim...

Danny Serafini
09-06-2006, 01:53 PM
Well, at least he didn't cost much I guess.

jesusfan
09-06-2006, 01:54 PM
Niekro flies to right...

lawnboy33
09-06-2006, 01:54 PM
Another great pitcher we picked up there! I'm not impressed

jesusfan
09-06-2006, 01:54 PM
ALfonzo flies to right... 2 down

keeganbrick
09-06-2006, 01:54 PM
This is going to be a long day unless our offense puts up 6 + runs.

jesusfan
09-06-2006, 01:55 PM
Why can't we just pitch Franklin in the 5th spot... He'd be alot better than Kim or Michalak!

jesusfan
09-06-2006, 01:55 PM
Linden lines to 3rd... Reds coming up...

dabvu2498
09-06-2006, 01:55 PM
ERA went down again.

lawnboy33
09-06-2006, 01:56 PM
I agree but this lineup is terrible for producing runs!

texasdave
09-06-2006, 01:56 PM
two fly outs and a laser to encarnacion and the giants are down in the top of the second.....i thought this kim guy was a ground ball pitcher...only one grounder in 8 batters so far......

jesusfan
09-06-2006, 01:57 PM
I dont know... but Narron talked like the organization was VERY high on him, this makes no sense however, you can't be that good with a 5.10 ERA in AAA.

jesusfan
09-06-2006, 01:57 PM
In Dunn's last 100 AB's he's 19-100... wow!

jesusfan
09-06-2006, 01:58 PM
1-19 Vs. SanFran

jesusfan

Dunner walks... C'mon Eddie

jesusfan

Eddie lines to 2nd.. 1 down

Ross K's... 2 down

jesusfan
09-06-2006, 02:03 PM
BPhil flies to right... Great start guys!

lawnboy33
09-06-2006, 02:04 PM
This is embarrasing! We can't get a hit off a rookie pitcher?

ochoa30
09-06-2006, 02:04 PM
Feels like shutout today, they always let us down when they need a win big time

texasdave
09-06-2006, 02:05 PM
dunn leads off the second with a walk but nothing comes of it. the giants pitcher must be hard to read because the radar gun i think tops out about 91 with him. but so far a lot of late swings

ochoa30
09-06-2006, 02:05 PM
Man, that durham at bat was bull

ochoa30
09-06-2006, 02:06 PM
kim needs a scoreless inning here, should of had one last inning

jesusfan
09-06-2006, 02:07 PM
Sanchez grounds to 3rd... 1 down

jesusfan
09-06-2006, 02:07 PM
Finley lines to center... 2 down

ochoa30
09-06-2006, 02:08 PM
kim throws harder then i expected

crazybob60
09-06-2006, 02:08 PM
I had a funny feeling before this game started that this Sanchez guy might give the Reds more than they can handle for some reason.

ochoa30
09-06-2006, 02:08 PM
I had a funny feeling before this game started that this Sanchez guy might give the Reds more than they can handle for some reason.

Because he is a rookie lefty, the reds have never hit them

cincyreds06
09-06-2006, 02:08 PM
Woo has looked good beyond them 2 runs not many balls hit hard really Its not bad really 2-0 aint much we can come back!

jesusfan
09-06-2006, 02:09 PM
Linden singles to center...

ochoa30
09-06-2006, 02:10 PM
gotta get this out

jesusfan
09-06-2006, 02:10 PM
wild pitch by kim...

cincyreds06
09-06-2006, 02:10 PM
We need to come back and win this game considering how hot the padres are!

keeganbrick
09-06-2006, 02:11 PM
Wow, this is pathetic.

ochoa30
09-06-2006, 02:11 PM
that suxxxx big time, we cant afford that

cincyreds06
09-06-2006, 02:11 PM
wow that was great !

jesusfan
09-06-2006, 02:12 PM
Yeah.. nice

cincyreds06
09-06-2006, 02:12 PM
sweeney up with a chance to pad the lead

ochoa30
09-06-2006, 02:12 PM
ross didnt do his job either passed ball, back handed attempts are brutal

Danny Serafini
09-06-2006, 02:12 PM
Have to love the strikeout/wild pitch. Getting an out without actually getting an out isn't very productive.

crazybob60
09-06-2006, 02:12 PM
we haven't had a bunch of come from behind victories here lately, not even by one run....we need to get some, especially this game much like we were doing at the beginning of the season when it seems like every game we came back and at least made it close or won it.

ochoa30
09-06-2006, 02:12 PM
that was lucky

MaineRed
09-06-2006, 02:12 PM
I wish the Reds still had Mark Sweeney

jesusfan
09-06-2006, 02:13 PM
Sweeney flies to right... C'mon Deno, lead us off!

ochoa30
09-06-2006, 02:13 PM
we have got to get on the board in this inning, work the count, and get on base

Danny Serafini
09-06-2006, 02:14 PM
Kim's ERA has plummeted nearly 4 full points today. See, he is good! ;)

cincyreds06
09-06-2006, 02:14 PM
good job kim getting out of that!

jesusfan
09-06-2006, 02:15 PM
ERA down to 15.30!!!

texasdave
09-06-2006, 02:15 PM
with the bullpen already throwing pinch hit for kim..he is a time bomb waiting to explode

Always Red
09-06-2006, 02:15 PM
Kim's ERA has plummeted nearly 4 full points today. See, he is good! ;)

it's almost like when Hammond went from infinity to 56.00 earlier this year.

ochoa30
09-06-2006, 02:15 PM
deno is bad

cincyreds06
09-06-2006, 02:15 PM
whos this sanchez dude?

jesusfan
09-06-2006, 02:16 PM
wow.. that was horrible!

MaineRed
09-06-2006, 02:16 PM
Steve Stone doesn't like the Bengals chances if Carson Palmer gets hurt.

jesusfan
09-06-2006, 02:16 PM
We can't even get 5 starters and other teams come up with some STUD out of nowhere when one starter goes down... It's frustrating!

ochoa30
09-06-2006, 02:16 PM
he is a giants top prospect, this really isnt a surprise to me

jesusfan
09-06-2006, 02:17 PM
Steve Stone doesn't like the Bengals chances if Carson Palmer gets hurt.

MASTER-O-OBVIOUS!

cincyreds06

at least he made contact

09-06-2006, 02:17 PM
Kim looks better than Deno up there...

cincyreds06
09-06-2006, 02:20 PM
We need to get some good innings together or something cause this is embarrassing!

ochoa30
09-06-2006, 02:20 PM
chasing balls, taking mistake pitches, why are they so bad sometimes?

ochoa30
09-06-2006, 02:22 PM
this crowd is pathetic but well deserved

lawnboy33
09-06-2006, 02:22 PM
What happen to the reds from a month ago. NO emotion, swinging at terrible picthes . What does narron tell them. "Its ok to lose just do your best "! and then give them juice and a cookie???

ochoa30
09-06-2006, 02:24 PM
he has decent stuff

jesusfan

That's exactly whats wrong with this team... He's a player's manager, which is good sometimes but not when your team is so loose they're on the verge of not caring!

jesusfan
09-06-2006, 02:25 PM
Kim K's Durham... 1 down

good inning, now its time to score some freakin runs guys!!!!!

jesusfan
09-06-2006, 02:29 PM
De La Rosa grounds back to Kim... Let's score!

Danny Serafini
09-06-2006, 02:29 PM
Chris Michalak is warming up.

Kim really isn't having a bad day, it was just a depressing start. 2 runs in 4 innings isn't horrible, and he's yet to walk a batter. Could be worse.

texasdave
09-06-2006, 02:30 PM
nice 4th by kim.....just wondering if sun-woo drives a daewoo? need some hits now

ochoa30
09-06-2006, 02:30 PM

maybe dunn will actually do something

jesusfan
09-06-2006, 02:34 PM
maybe dunn will actually do something

I doubt it... prove me wrong dunn

ochoa30
09-06-2006, 02:35 PM
im sick of dunn taking every darn pitch, pathetic and then swingin through everything else

lawnboy33
09-06-2006, 02:35 PM
Why would they take Kim out? He's not doing that bad!

jesusfan
09-06-2006, 02:35 PM
And Dunn K's once again...

texasdave
09-06-2006, 02:37 PM
dunn needs to be moved for pitching in the off-season....he has been clutch beyond belief during this stretch drive

ochoa30
09-06-2006, 02:37 PM
did u see the 1-0 pitch, you cant take that, it was batting practice then before you know it dunn is down 1-2 and swingin through a pitchers pitch for strike 3. He isnt very bright!!!

lawnboy33
09-06-2006, 02:37 PM
I'm starting to wonder if this is a conspiracy ! St louis paying the reds to lose lol What else could it be. We can't su c k this bad? We are giving a no hitter to a rookie

BUTLER REDSFAN
09-06-2006, 02:37 PM
I hope they prove me wrong but.... the guys look like all they're thinking about is their first hunting or fishing trip the 1st week of october..absolutely lifeless and unconcerned

ochoa30
09-06-2006, 02:38 PM
yes, i hope he is moved too, bring up bruce all the way from low a, he cant be any worse

Kim is quietly doing a decent job, while we can't score a run... wait I mean... GET A HIT!

ochoa30
09-06-2006, 02:41 PM
anyone wanna predict the inning the reds finally get a hit?

bebo03
09-06-2006, 02:41 PM
If we are playing great defense why can't they get excited about that and transfer it to offense?

jesusfan
09-06-2006, 02:41 PM
Well... guys im off to class, maybe that will give the Red's some luck!

Jefferson24
09-06-2006, 02:42 PM
Someone needs to send the Reds a memo. Playoff spot still possible....Must win most of remaining games.....Don't lay down yet!

ochoa30
09-06-2006, 02:42 PM
lets get a hit, im lowering my standards

ochoa30
09-06-2006, 02:43 PM
EE is chasing everything lately

ochoa30
09-06-2006, 02:44 PM
finally, we got a hit, how bout another

lawnboy33
09-06-2006, 02:44 PM
Do you remember when Freel made "the catch" and Ross had the walk off HR. I was so pumped the players were pumped and I just can't figure out what happened to all that emotion. They simply don't care anymore.

bebo03
09-06-2006, 02:44 PM

09-06-2006, 02:46 PM
right down the middle, that was pathetic, come on ross

ochoa30
09-06-2006, 02:47 PM
we need someone to step up

09-06-2006, 02:48 PM
all fastballs too, they arent that hard to hit, lets go

Kim better not bat this inning!

ochoa30
09-06-2006, 02:53 PM
absolutely pathetic, how do you pop up a pitch you know is coming, unnaceptable

Danny Serafini
09-06-2006, 02:53 PM
OK, finally back. This game isn't quite so hopeless. Kim's pitched better than expected, and they've got a shot to tie right here.

Danny Serafini
09-06-2006, 02:54 PM
Norris Hopper coming in to pinch hit. Looks like Ryan Franklin will pitch the 6th.

ochoa30
09-06-2006, 02:55 PM
swingin at all balls, this is just horrible hitting by all the reds

ochoa30
09-06-2006, 02:55 PM
huge hit, start this kid over deno

lawnboy33
09-06-2006, 02:55 PM
I think Kim was good Had to be alot of pressure the first 2 innings. If we only had some run support he would have went 7-8 Starting to feel bad for our starting pitching at least they are trying!

ochoa30
09-06-2006, 02:56 PM
lets go freel

Danny Serafini
09-06-2006, 02:56 PM
That's how you lead the IL in hitting. Nice job Hopper, first Major League RBI.

ochoa30

come on freel, get a hit

Danny Serafini
09-06-2006, 03:00 PM
Sanchez is definitely rattled right now. Time to pounce.

Danny Serafini
09-06-2006, 03:00 PM
Double steal, runners go to 2nd and 3rd.

ochoa30
09-06-2006, 03:00 PM
cant swing there, not acceptable, freel K's way to much

ochoa30
09-06-2006, 03:01 PM
This kind of game, that is probably are one chance

lawnboy33
09-06-2006, 03:02 PM
well at least we got 1. Yep I like Hopper clutch!

goreds2
09-06-2006, 03:03 PM
Kim is quietly doing a decent job, while we can't score a run... wait I mean... GET A HIT!

2 earned runs in 5 innings = 3.60 ERA :thumbup:

09-06-2006, 03:03 PM
at least narron is trying to get something going on offense with all the running....freel whiffs at ball four...=(

great, ryan franklin, there goes the game

Team Clark

2nd Big K for Sanchez with a 3-2 Change. Nice change too. Takes guts to throw that.

bradmu
09-06-2006, 03:27 PM
The fact that this team cannot buy a timely hit in scoring opportunities, yet can easily scrounge up a groundball dp with bases loaded to kill a rally. Thats why we have lost so many lately. The chances have been there most of the time. we just can't capitalize off them.

Last night, we got lucky. We left the Bases loaded twice, and squandered numerous other scoring chances. Should have been 7-0. Lucky for us, Bronson was on his game or else we'd have lost last night too.

I know someone mentioned this earlier..but how is Clayton getting put in this lineup still? When he and Larue play....its like having 3 pitchers in the lineup.

If you want defense, how is Castro not getting some spot starts in Aurillia's place? Juan isn't exactly a slugger, but he seems to have somewhat of a clue when he's at the plate.

Jefferson24

I agree. At least they're hungry and they have something to prove.

Jerry didn't give this team a chance to win today. You can't tell me that Hatte couldn't have done any less than Clayton and Hollands worth than Deno. Question will Krivs and Cast decide to eat Jerry's extension next year considering the recent demise of the Reds? I mean really how much of an improvement has Jerry been than Miley? I don't think much and if left in place next year their records will be very similar.

It's almost like they started today arleady down a few runs. I knew we were in for it when I saw that line up. Hattey's bat even lefty vs. lefty is better the RC vs. anybody.

if we didn't need more depressing news, The Nationals were 1 out away from getting out of a 2 on no out jam against the cardinals, and just gave up a 3 run homer...Cards now up 3-1 in the middle of 6. Why can't we get a timely hit?

I know it seems like a new concept since we never get them...I usually think of a timely hit as one with RISP, a 2 out run producing hit, a late inning hit to keep your team in a game. Something along that lines.
