The pitching. I mean, that’s the all-year story right? It’s pretty rare that the pitching doesn’t get it done. Homer has been really good since a rough first month or so. I felt like he was kind of just okay tonight, but he still ended up with a good result against a good lineup.
Jumbo Diaz deserves his own line. One and a third with three strikeouts. It means something when you’re the guy they bring out to face Stanton.
The offense. Yada yada yada. You know how it is. Todd Frazier has really been slumping lately. The Reds need someone to hit. The problems were exemplified in the tenth inning when a Chris Heisey triple plus three strikeouts yielded no runs.
I have been a big Zack Cozart booster at times, but it is really getting bad with the bat.
Sam LeCure has had better nights.
Not So Random Thoughts
I was very excited for replay when the season started, but the more I see of it, the less I like it. They ought to be able to handle it better than this.
Disappointing as this game was, the Reds will go for a series win tomorrow. That would be something, I guess.
Maybe I’m wrong about this, but one of the things that makes this team hard to watch isn’t that their kind of average it’s that they’re boring average. Very little excitement on the roster right now. I pretty much only get really excited for a game when Cueto is pitching. I’m sure that will change sometimes before the end of the season, but right now, snore-o-rama.
