This is one of those games Reds can't expect to win and wouldn't be a tragedy to lose. Reds would have a split in SF which is good.

Still, it would be a GREAT game to win. Let's hope Bronson is on like last time, but gets relieved in due time. Reds bullpen is well rested after two consecutive complete games.

IMO Frazier will get some starts at 1st this week if Joey needs some more days off. Does anyone know how long they think Votto will be out?

_Sir_Charles_
07-01-2012, 05:18 PM
Cozart flies out on the first pitch.

Vogelsong has just as much of a gripe at not making the All Star team as Cueto does.

Stubbs grounds out sharply to second. 2 down.

Frazier is playing third, not Rolen, who is a "late scratch."

Reds Fanatic

Back spasms for Rolen

_Sir_Charles_
07-01-2012, 05:30 PM
Ground out to short. Theriot to second.

Rolen was scratched due to back spasms.

_Sir_Charles_
07-01-2012, 05:30 PM
I've got 3 screaming girls running around me, so if somebody wants to take the pbp, feel free. I know I'm going to miss some stuff.

_Sir_Charles_
07-01-2012, 05:31 PM
I didn't miss THAT though. Great play by Frazier at the hot corner to end the inning.

I can do it for awhile but it looks like a big storm is headed toward this area so if I drop out suddenly that is why.

Looked fine in the first allowed a walk but got through on only 13 pitches. He is going to need to be on because Vogelsong looks good so far today.

07-01-2012, 05:42 PM
Sandoval who in no way should be starting the all star game grounds out to short.

Kc61
07-01-2012, 05:43 PM
Amazing that the Giants have three all star starters. It shows you what an excellent pitching staff and rabid fans can get you. Melky Cabrera got more all star votes than Joey Votto.

Angel Pagan came in fifth in the voting for NL outfield.

Kc61
07-01-2012, 05:44 PM
Sandoval who in no way should be starting the all star game grounds out to short.

The SF ballot stuffing really skewed the results this year.

Sandoval beat out David Wright for third base, which is a joke.

All the sudden 7 straight balls.

Stubbs makes a nice catch on the warning track. 2 outs.

Nice catch by Stubbs, that ball got blown around quite a bit too.

How many stolen bases do the Giants have in this series?

Kc61
07-01-2012, 05:51 PM
So far in this game, the Reds outstanding defense has kept things scoreless.

Just as I type that, Hanigan throws the ball into centerfield allowing the stolen base. No advance to third, though.

_Sir_Charles_
07-01-2012, 05:51 PM
Bronson is struggling with control...and its rubbing off on Hanny now as he sails one over into the OF. But Stubbs backs it up quickly.

Reds Fanatic
07-01-2012, 05:52 PM
Crawford grounds out to Arroyo. 0-0 after 2.

_Sir_Charles_

Nice play by Arroyo to get the out. Struggling, but still putting up zeros.

Would be great to get solid 6 out of BA today, the bullpen is WELL rested, and actually might need the work.

Apparently Rolen's back spasms started right at the beginning of the game.

_Sir_Charles_

I'll say this for Sandoval, he's got a freaking cannon over there.

Kc61
07-01-2012, 05:56 PM
Apparently Rolen's back spasms started right at the beginning of the game.

Rolen is considered in this game and then removed. He is not eligible to come in later. The scratch was after the game began.

Any update on Votto? Is he able to PH today?

I like the way he stood up for his teammates for the AS team. Very leaderish.

I agree. For those who missed it....


ďItís kind of difficult to be overly happy today, considering the two guys I thought were shoo-ins arenít going to be on the team,Ē he said. ďThatís frustrating. I knew I was going to be an All-Star. I was hoping those two guys, the five of us, would go to Kansas City. As much as I donít want to get into pissing contest right now, as happy as I am for myself and Jay, Iím disappointed for the two guys who are very, very meaningful to this first-place ballclub.Ē

Arroyo strikes out. So far 9 up and 9 down for the Reds. 0-0 mid 3rd.

Reds Fanatic
07-01-2012, 06:00 PM
I agree. For those who missed it....

I also liked the way Dusty stood up for the players as well:


“A snub like that looks bad. Johnny and Brandon were at the center of skirmish between us and the Cardinals. Some of Cardinals who aren’t there anymore are making some of the selections.”

07-01-2012, 06:01 PM
Vogelsong strikes out swinging.

Kc61
07-01-2012, 06:03 PM
In 8 starts at SF this year, Vogelson's OPS against is .555. Include the fact that Votto isn't playing. Include the fact that the Reds have only one lefty hitter other than Votto (although Vogelsong is tough against both righties and lefties). Include the fact that Arroyo's run support this season is among the worst in the league.

It would be a great game to win for the Reds, uphill battle.

What I was thinking as well KC. This would be a great game for the Reds to steal.....hoping someone steps up, and our staff can grind it out.

Posey keeps spoiling off good pitches

Reds Fanatic
07-01-2012, 06:11 PM
Giants just took a 1-0 lead on a Posey single. Someone should probably take over pbp as the storms have knocked my tv out for now.

redsfaninbsg
07-01-2012, 06:11 PM
That in a nutshell is why I hate watching Arroyo pitch. Two outs nobody on ahead 0-2 and you allow three consecutive hits

kbrake
07-01-2012, 06:12 PM
Arroyo just needs to limit the damage here. This offense without Votto against above average RHP is scary.

redsfaninbsg
07-01-2012, 06:12 PM
Good damage control

_Sir_Charles_
07-01-2012, 06:14 PM
Hard to rag on Bronson much there. That was a heck of an AB from Posey there.

Could be hard to draw a walk. Vogelsong seems to be getting a lot of marginal strikes called.

Kc61

Yeah, Posey hit a good pitch. Can't really blame BA there.

Bronson was ahead of Posey 0-2. He just doesn't have the stuff to put a hitter like Posey away.

This is one of those game where the type of lineup the Reds trot out, without Votto, makes it very difficult to score many runs.

_Sir_Charles_
07-01-2012, 06:18 PM
Really? That didn't look like a strike at all to me.

I love the hitting to left Jay, but how about turning on one and sending it into the bay?

I think because it sounded like it hit wood.

:O) I'm kidding of course.

I hope the horse isn't dead. That makes it sound irreversible.

Phillips gets hit by a pitch, the Giants announcers are livid, they say it did not hit him, they are furious because their Vogelsong can't pitch a perfect game today.

I haven't heard them mention, however, the good fortune of their beloved Giants that the best hitter in the league is on the bench today because of an inflamed knee.

The Extra Innings package with the opposing team's announcers makes it hard to watch the game. I think I'll shut off the sound and listent to the Reds radio broadcast which will be ten seconds delayed from the TV action.

Frazier has won me over. He may not be a great player, but he sure was ready for the big leagues.

Seamless transition for him from AAA to the major leagues. As we all know, it sometimes takes an eternity for these guys to make the switch over.

Hey Dusty. Just one fan's opinion.

Use the whole pen if necessary today. They are all rested. Stay with Bronson but when you have to, play this like Game 7 of the World Series.

Winning three of four in SF would be a real shot in the arm.

_Sir_Charles_
07-01-2012, 06:44 PM
Hanigan has really been struggling lately it seems. 2 down after he grounds to 2nd.

Kc61
07-01-2012, 06:46 PM
Hanigan has really been struggling lately it seems. 2 down after he grounds to 2nd.

Last thirty days, .638 OPS for Hanigan with almost no power.

He's still ok to get the bat on the ball and occasionally poke one into right for a key single, but Mes is going to have to supply the power from that position.

Grounder to Phillips. Pagan didn't even run. He was fuming about that previous strike call.

Pagan chatting up the ump there. He's pissed

And then he hardly even jogs down to first. That strike call was more a strike than some this ump has rung up.

I agree about going to the pen a little early here. Dusty should have played this game like the Rockies would. 75 pitches and Bronson is out. taking 3 of 4 would be huge for the start of this trip

I really don't understand Dusty on Arroyo. He said recently that it's hard to judge when to remove Bronson from the game, or words to that effect.

Arroyo is a 90-95 pitch guy. Today he has been hit fairly hard, the bullpen is well stocked, all these lefties coming up.

I can understand the difficulty of these decisions with some of the other pitchers. With Arroyo? He should be removed earlier in many of his games. Like this one.

All things considered, I think Bronson pitched VERY well today. He clearly didn't have his good stuff and he really battled and minimized damage.

But yeah, he should be done. Leaving him in there wasn't that bad of a decision...his pitch count wasn't that high and he was facing the bottom of the order. The single just pushed it up some. Much ado about nothing IMO.
