I really don't see why the Cards aren't winning more with that lineup.

Not to turn this into a Dusty bashing but man, it's not a great sign when you look at the lineup, think the names in it are exactly right...and then realize your two weakest bats are hitting 1st and 2nd. :(

Imagine how Dusty would look with that lineup and a 7 game deficit in the standings.

Cozart's numbers over the last month reflect anything but a weak hitter. In fact, his OPS in that period is 130 points higher than Phillips'.

You want Hanigan to lead off? Not many managers would hit the slowest man on the team in the lead off spot. How many catchers lead off. It's not just Dusty.

The team lacks natural table setters. I've complained about this personnel all year, but Walt is pretty sharp. Maybe he realized that in this division, these ballparks, power is the key and consistent power through the lineup is most important.

Forget the batting order, the correct guys are playing, let's get a win.

Can't believe Latos' ERA is all the way down to 3.56 after his April disaster. Sweet.

Great AB by Phillips to drag his bat and go the other way with the ball. He's really improved as a hitter over the years.

After two innings, Reds 3, Cards 1.

Latos at 27 pitches, 18 strikes.
Lynn at 55 pitches, 32 strikes. (Joe Kelly warming in the bullpen, with Lynn due up 1st, Lynn may be taken down for a pinch hitter.)

2-0 Brewers lead Pirates in the fourth.

This is one of the 23 games I identified as "easier" for the Pirates because the Brewers are so weak on the road. If the Crew can win it, that's a nice plus for the Reds.

Jocketty on with Costas on MLB Network telecast.

Talking about Gonzalez trade to the Dodgers that may happen.

Now Walt talking about Billy Hamilton possibly joining the team. Walt says under discussion, Walt is going to watch him play next week, lot of factors.

Costas says he has something like 800 steals down there, LOL. Showing Hamilton clips now..

K for Latos.

Walt says Devin will be available for post-season even though he won't be back before the 1st. I don't get that, but this is not the time to discuss.

Sounds like that Gonzalez trade may be going down. He was scratched from the Red Sox lineup and Loney scratched from the Dodgers lineup tonight.

I think it shows how big this series is for the Cardinals. Even as bad as Lynn looked normally they would not pull a starter that early.

Kc61
08-24-2012, 09:15 PM
Why pull Lynn so early other than he was getting killed? He only was pitching in the third and only gave up 3 runs.

One reason is they have a good replacement in Kelly who has started games.

Bruce with that upper cut swing flies out a thousand feet in the air.

Kelly, with a K rate of less than 6 per 9, strikes out one of the hardest guys to strike out in the bigs

Edit: Maybe Hanigan isn't as hard to K as I thought.

Edit again: Yeah , his 10% K rate is one of the best in the bigs.

Reds have the bases loaded with only one out and don't score. Cardinals push a run across after having two outs and nobody on base. Very frustrating. This could be a four or five run lead right now.

They will walk Hanigan which is upsetting because there is no way Ryan wouldn't drive in more runs. Not after that strikeout last time.

Reds will get to Kelly this inning.

Well, sort of...

Ludwick flies out.
Bruce singles to right.
Frazier pop singles to shallow right.
Rolen doubles down the right field line, Bruce score.
Hanigan intentionally walked.
Latos Ks swinging.
Cozart flies out.

After 5 innings, Reds 5, Cards 2.

Latos at 71 pitches, 49 strikes.
Kelly at 69 pitches, 42 strikes.

I find this particularly impressive for the Reds. They've made Kelly work a lot and Latos has only two more pitches than Kelly while pitching two more innings.

Yeah, I don't agree, Reds have five runs, the pitcher hit in many of those innings.

What happened here is Latos lost it. He didn't have six innings in him tonight. That's really too bad, he's supposed to be a horse, he can't fade in the sixth.

It's on Mat just as it was on Johnny last night.

But there's still time, Reds can hit too.

As a former 1st baseman...you got to make that play. His back was turned, and Frazier assumed Latos was going to be there...he could of made it to the bag if he would of hustled from the getgo.
