Reds at Yankees (July 18, 2014)

The All-Star break is finally over (did it seem to last longer this year than normal, sheesh) and the Reds resume play today in inter-league fashion by traveling to the Big Apple to take on the Yankees. I’m honestly not sure who plays for the Yankees, but I am pretty sure they have some player who has had a good career set to retire at the end of this season that has been all the buzz this week.

The Reds start the 2nd half of the season off with Mike Leake on the mound. I don’t understand the move to start Leake out of the gate when Cueto is fully rested, but that’s just me. Hopefully Leake will go out there and shut down the pinstripes and get the Reds off to a good second half start.

Discuss the game here, Reds fans! Go Reds!

Lineup:
1. Hamilton CF
2. Cozart SS
3. Frazier 3B
4. Bruce RF
5. Mesoraco C
6. Ludwick DH
7. Pena 1B
8. Heisey LF
9. Santiago 2B
– Leake SP

  1. The Yankee announcers like to talk about GABP being a bandbox.

    Looks like Pena has figured out that the Yankee stadium RF wall is a joke.

    • Like the optimism. And these Reds hitters better bring their hitting shoes the rest of this week-end – especially since 4 of the 5 Yankee starters that started this season are out. The Reds need to start hitting. Pena up – make it 3.

    • I read that as – we need ALF. Was thinking, I know we have a lousy bench but I don’t think a cartoon puppet is going to help. HA … I kill me.

  2. 9th inning, 2 outs… you choices are: Ramon Santiago, Kris Negron, Donald Lutz, Neftali Soto, Fire Your GM.

      • I believe I would have taken a shot with Lutz for Satiago with 2 outs to see if he could have popped one up and reached that short porch. It would have been a long shot (the odds not the distance to the porch), but a shot anyway. Negron would have played 2nd in the bottom of the inning.

    • I’m not happy about it either but this happens. Gotta hit period. Too many bats on the shoulders tonight!!!

    • Totally agree – here’s hoping Billy H, Frazier and Bruce get off the snide tomorrow. Frazier snoozing on his 2nd AB is not going to cut it at all. Kid, get over the big head and get back to work.

  3. Well, the Reds had a chance to win the game to the very end, but whatta ya gonna do when Beltran gets a check swing double it might not be your night, it happens. We’ll get em tomorrow. Go Reds! Adios Amigos.
