Game Thread: Reds at Astros — 2007.05.29

Matt Belisle vs. Jason Jennings, and I don’t know what to expect tonight. Frankly, I’m a bit surprised that Jerry Narron is still in charge of this team. We’ll see what happens over the next few days and weeks.

Over at Redlegs Rundown, Jeff has a pretty good preview of the upcoming series. It goes without saying that the Reds hopes of putting together any kind of season are slipping down the drain, so this road trip is important. Well, if it goes without saying, why did I just say it? I don’t know.

I’ll be watching the game because I’m a Reds fan. That’s what I do. I just hope that something has clicked and this team can be competitive, at the least, the rest of the way. The Little League-brand of bumbling nonsense that the Reds have been playing…well, I just can’t deal with it any longer.

Discuss it here.

  1. “I don’t want to embarrass any other catcher by comparing him to Chad Moeller.” — Sparky Anderson

  2. Nice. I don’t want to be Tony Kornheiser, but my roto team just got a win (Sheets) and a save (Gregg) in the last 5 minutes.

  3. Great pitching by Belisle. But you bring in Weathers after Coutlangus zips them in the 8th.? Let Coutlangus pitch the 9th., for God’s sake! Narron is an idiot!

  4. I really can’t believe Narron was going to head into extra innings with Moeller, Castro, Wise, Hopper, and Gonzalez in the lineup together. That’s just remarkable. I think they’d have to issue a refund if they threw that lineup out in a spring training game.

  5. Sorry. I saw that quote from Anderson up at the top, and I couldn’t help myself.

  6. Heckuva pitching performance for the Reds the last two days..even if Stormy made it a bit too interesting for my blood!

  7. two in a row. I can hardly believe it! They need to rip off about 9 or 10 in a row and bring this season back from the abyss.
