Is this the last start of the year for Leake? I'm trying to project the final days of my fantasy league and knowing what pitchers I can drop to pick up others that have good match ups.

Phillips out of his slump and now he sits......and Valdez has to hit leadoff? And we keep wondering why the offense cannot get going? When the heck is Ludwick going to play. He's not a Faberge egg. I have heard he has been ready for 3 days now.

Last I heard, Ludwick will return tomorrow.

Time Warner has apparently decided that I'd rather not see this game. Columbus Crew on my regular FSOhio station. College football on the others. And my "alternate" station is a nice clean blank screen.

After 5 complete innings, both pitchers have successfully lulled the opposing offense to sleep. Granted, both offenses only feature one dangerous hitter...well, we've got the upper hand today since Leake is pitching...we've got 2 hitters! ;)

The Woo! is going on sporadically throughout the game.

We're completely fine for the playoffs provided all our pitchers throw shutouts and Selig changes the rules to decide tie games with penalty kicks.

I'm sure he can too but it'll be tough to score him from 2nd on a base hit. Moot point. Bruce Ks.

He is going to have to do it ion the playoffs though.

OK. I understand.. They are saving everything for the playoffs. Their legs, concentration and ability to grind out at bats. The last one...will just magically appear all of a sudden then.

Dude, they haven't played with their actual starting lineup all together at once but like (maybe) once or twice in the past 10 weeks. Starting next week, that will happen.

Not saying the offense is great when it's all in there together, but it's hard to judge based on a month where it's never been penciled-in.

I get that. I get they could go all 1990 on everyone....but I also get they could go all 1995 in the playoffs as well.

They have been resting some guys beacuse of injuries. But now they are still resting them again starting tomorrow? Hitting takes some repetition and timing. Phillips finally looks good hitting and now you sit him? Just don't get the way too laid back attitude I am seeing to go along with Jose and Logan as options for this bullpen.

Bad enough Valdez and Cairo have to stink up this bench..... their pitching is going to have to be near 1963-66 Dodger perfect to win.

Chip R

And if this were a playoff game, we sure as hell wouldn't see Logan Ondrusek in a 1-1 game in the 8th inning.

If you can't trust him does he make the roster? Man...he has struggled big time the last several outings.

WebScorpion
09-29-2012, 10:55 PM
Ondrusek coaxes a couple of fly outs to the wall out of the vaunted Pirates offense. 2 outs.
Then he loads up the bases framing a single with a couple of walks, so he could get to the hitter he wanted, Sterling Marte who he gets to foul out down the first base line. 3 outs.

After 8 complete, Reds 1 - Pirates 1.

"You know what seed I'd like to have? Me, I'd like to be three," Speier said. "I'd like to know that they're coming to me, and I've got two games at home. But that's not the scenario or anything that this team is about in regards to winning or losing games. We're going to play every game, and we're going to try to win every game. We're playing teams that are hot, that we don't want to face, and we're going to try to do what we can to knock everybody we play out."

I hope that's not his mentality. I gaurantee it isn't Dusty's, who returns on Monday.

The playoff setup for this season is stupid, and typical Bud Selig, but there's no reason this team can't at least win one on the road before having 3 shots to win two at home.

Things return to "normal" in round 2.
