2012 Reds / Game Thread

Game Thread: Reds vs. Dodgers (2012.09.23)

Since the division championship is assured, I shudder to think what lineup is going to be sent out to face the Dodgers tonight. Either way, I hope Joey Votto isn’t in the lineup. I’d rather see him rest for two weeks, maybe get a little healthier before the playoffs begin.

Tonight’s game is a nationally-televised ESPN affair. Discuss the game here. Go Redlegs.

  1. Well, that was disappointing. I guess we’re gonna have to grind this one out. Same story, different day.

  2. @SGT Ethan:
    Your going to go to a playoff game and yell “WOOOO”? You’re not really that dumb are you? It’s a playoff game dude. It’s a different crowd. Actual baseball fans that really know, and are into, the game.

      …I probably wouldn’t, but more because I’m a pretty subdued guy in general, not because I give a fig about who’s in the crowd…

  3. Chris Spier, class act. I dunno how he’d construct a lineup, but everything he’s said the last few days has been pitch perfect.

      He put Heisey at the top and moved Stubbs down. That’s proof right there that he has a lot on the ball.

        On the other hand, he put Valdez second and Cairo ahead of anyone.

  4. OK, back to the game. Homer looks really good.

    BTW, I’ve been going to post season games since 1973. I kinda know what I’m talking about. Pay attention! :wink:

    • @Lou Brown : A little condescending.. don’t you think?

      No, I love all Reds fans. Just messing around.

    • @LouBrown: I do all sorts of dumb stuff when I’m jacked up on Mountain Dew! Wooooo will be the least of it!

      Diet Dew does it for me! :D

  5. After listening to Keltch call Votto Cairo and Cairo Votto I’ve had enough of him and Doug Flynn. These two are terrible, I’d rather listen to the ESPN announcers. So good night WLW radio.

  6. Ends up being another poor start for Homer at GABP. Although he looked sharp for most of the night, he finishes with a pedestrian 6.2 ip, 4ER line. Just doesn’t make any sense to pitch him at home come playoff time.

      Or, if your #4 starter goes 6 innings of 1-run baseball in the playoffs, maybe you finish up Nasty Boys style with Marshall, Broxton, Chapman in the 7th/8th/9th innings.

  7. Lots of empty seats – anyone know how many showed up to watch this night’s….titanic struggle?

    (Not that I’m complaining – I’m at home in my recliner, after all…)

  8. Don’t know why Valdez is batting…not going to get him going any longer though he might have a hit against Jansen.

  9. Heisey getting a few more walks lately – a definite improvement. And getting a few breaks from umps over this span.

  10. Ya gotta love em, this team never gives up. They just keep on plugging away. They may have lost, but it wasn’t for lack of trying. Go Reds!!
