Game Thread: Reds at Dodgers — 2007.05.12

Gonna stay up late again?

I probably will, and I hope that I’m not wondering why when the clock strikes 1:00AM or so. The offense was simply putrid last night, and part of that blame can be laid at the feet of manager Jerry Narron for giving us a lineup that includes Norris Hopper at leadoff, and a bottom three of Juan Castro, David Ross, and the pitcher’s spot. With those four “hitters” in a row, no wonder Randy Wolf struck out 42 Reds last night.

For what it’s worth, this was mentioned in last night’s game thread, but I thought I’d throw it out there again: Bobby Livingston will be called up from AAA to get the start tomorrow against LA.

Okay, here’s the game thread. Is tonight the night that starts the Reds on a long winning streak? My glass is half full! (For now.)

  1. George Grande glorifying Walter O’Malley making it sound as if O’Malley had to move the Dodgers to LA from Brooklyn. What a crock! He and Auggie Busch are two of the biggest tyrants to rule the game.

  2. Looking at that last line about the Reds starting a long winning streak. I don’t think it is possible for a Reds team to generate a long winning streak when Jerry Narron is constantly tinkering with the line-up.

  3. Wow, 5 posts for a Reds game thread. Maybe ownership or management needs to take a look at what their “product” is doing to even the most rabid of Reds fans… I didn’t even bother checking the score this morning… The Reds were down when I went to bed and I didn’t have any expectations they would mount a comeback to win the game.

    At least when we had an actual offense you thought there was a chance to win each night, even if the team was down by more than a single run…
