I know Stubbs has heated up, but I'm disappointed Paul can't draw a start against a righty. Especially if you're gonna be batting Stubbs high in the order against a righty.

Good comparison. He is bringing that kind of vibe to the club right now.

Kc61

Key for tonight is that Marshall pitched two innings last night. Likely out.

So if Reds need relief, aside from Chapman, most likely guys are Ondrusek and Broxton IMO.

It seems that way, although Dusty seems more comfortable not putting him there for one reason or another. But he'd make a great candidate for it, no doubt. It would allow Phillips to be moved to leadoff. That's a double-win.

Not very good hitting there with Hanigan grounding to third and Cozart going up 3-1 in the count and fouling out.

Both teams with the meat of the order coming up, third inning should be of interest.

Yeah, Arroyo's been playing with fire all night. Only a matter of time 'til he got burned.

Having said that, though, it seems like the Pads have had a lot of seeing-eye singles get through for base hits this series. Two of 'em that last inning plated both runs. I guess that's the risk you take when you don't miss a lot of bats.

Just HORRIBLE mechanics from Baker. I've seen him move his body AWAY from the ball numerous times and just reach for it. Completely the opposite of what he SHOULD be doing. If he gets any consistent playing time there's going to be a passed ball-fest in SD.

I guess that's a break, but even if that ball did hit the ball boy (and I'm not so sure it did), then it's still runners on 2nd and 3rd with 1 out. Not a guaranteed run, but chances are still good Stubbs eventually scores anyway.

I can understand their reasoning. Hard to believe the ball went that far after it hit him...but apparently it did.

On the replay from the home plate camera the ump is looking right at the ball as it goes straight at and hits the ball boy. That's the only reason I think it was a big miss.

I actually thought that it missed him. I thought he got his leg up right before it hit the bottom of the wall along the stands. I didn't see the ball boy grimace, and I'm not sure it's possbile for the ball to bounce that far if it hit his leg and not the wall.

Yeah, I don't think it's as clear cut as kal is making it out to be, but I just watched the replay in slow-mo and it looks like he's right, the ball did hit the ball boy's toe just before he tried lifting up his leg.

At any rate, the run would've scored anyway, so it ends up being a moot point.

I will concede it isn't that clear cut. I watched frame by frame in hi def and I see it hit him on the leg right above his ankle on his pants then it skips under and takes the wicked hop off the wall. Its all pretty moot as the result of the play probably would have been the same.

His right foot WAS....but his left was WAAAAY outside. That's all it takes isn't it?

~edit~ Found it. Yeah, just one foot out prior to the ball leaving the pitcher's hand...it's a balk.


Rule 4.03(a) states "The catcher shall station himself directly back of the plate. He may leave his position at any time to catch a pitch or make a play except that when the batter is being given an intentional base on balls, the catcher must stand with both feet within the lines of the catcher's box until the ball leaves the pitcher's hand. PENALTY: Balk."

What is Cairo doing? Ahead in the count, BB is a wild pitcher, swings away and pops up. Man, Cairo has had a real good career, but he has been pretty brutal at the plate this year.

Frustrating. Now 2-0 on Hanigan.

Cairo, Redszone whipping boy, flies out to left.

I usually find that the whipping boy is overly whipped on RZ, but even I can't defend Miggy this year. He has had a good run for this team but the production is non existant this season. I can see him having value as a mentor and stuff, but you gotta do something when on the field.

Fortunately he really hasn't gotten enough playing time to really sink the team. The waste of a spot on the 25 man is the big issue.
