    Ridiculously good slide by Aquino and honestly a hell of a call by Bucknor

    Ervin swinging 3-0

    I see allowing it as they appeared to be pitching around but it has to be exactly where you want it. Jesus

    Been nice to turn it over. Now pitcher leads off and likely saved STRUGGLING pitcher saves 5-7 pitches

    and it was Bauer....I think you green light Ervin in that position with a runner on 3rd.

    Now that pitcher will lead off the next inning. I agree with IronMan.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    So the pitcher us at least not leading off next inning.

    So you can force the pitcher to throw a WP or a better pitch on a 3-1 or 3-2 count.

    So you can make the pitcher labor some more, for possibly 7-8 more pitches in the inning.

    So the runners can be going on a full count.

    So a WP (he's already hit a batter and walked several and has no control right now) can occur on any of the next 7-8 pitches.

    There are more reasons, but I'm tired of listing them.

    That’s a very defensive position. Sounds like your goal was to clear the pitcher.

    My goal was to give the Reds the best chance to score more runs.

    Shouldn't Ervin get an error on the throw?

    The manager and entire coaching staff should be fired immediately. This isn't even funny any more.
