Game Thread: Reds at Rockies — 2007.06.03

It’s the rubber match of this three game series with Colorado today, and Matt Buh-lissle will face off against Rodrigo Lopez. If the Reds can win this game, and the series, it will mean that the Reds are the greatest team on earth. Nothing less.

No pressure….

  1. Dunn is deemed able to pinch-hit for Weathers. McBeth just by dint of his minor-league numbers might be the best major-league reliever the Reds have. 😛

  2. well the heart of the order just went down like a sack of dirt. lets hope we get another shot at them.

  3. Nope, Santos comes on. And I was just readying my Shakespeare quotations, too.

  4. santos. i just don’t get it. why do you send livingston down to get mcbeth, and then not use him, either when you have a 6 run lead, or when you’re in extra innings. i just don’t get it.

  5. Well, the Reds didn’t deserve this one. 10-9 Colorado in 10 innings.

  6. well, not too much to be said about this one. same as it ever was, bullpen and bullpen management. keep doing the same thing, and you’ll get the same result.

  7. why is McBeth, Salmon and/or Burton on the roster if you refuse to use them. I don’t get it. I’d rather see someone else blow the game then the same people over and over again. And say all you want about Weathers being solid this year. Check out his stats with inherited runners all but one has scored this year

  8. Narron would have been better off using McBeth.

    “We still have judgment here; that we but teach
    Bloody instructions, which being taught, return
    To plague the inventor.”

  9. How can one pitching staff be so bad! That was ANOTHER shameful performance by the bullpen.

  10. this is the worst season for ifs ands and buts i’ve ever had as a reds fan. this team finds ways to lose in games where that’s saying something. it just feels like they’re not that bad, but they are.

  11. Bang head repeatedly on wall……..Dump the Pen and replace them all with Gas Cans oh wait they already are gas cans. Any how make sure you employ gas van on any fire to put it out of the win because that is what this Pen does well right now.

  12. I am not sure if it matter who is managing the team anymore. The Starters all must go 9 to consider an attempt to get a win.

  13. I agree with Jim. Castellini and Krivsky were both in Colorado today. Narron may be gone with the off-day tomorrow.

    I also agree with Justin that it probably doesn’t matter. Bucky Dent will be the same deal.

  14. Narron’s not going anywhere. If he didn’t get fired after the disastrous homestand, he won’t get fired after 2/3 of the road trip.

    Bucky Dent will be the same deal

    And you know this how? Dent hasn’t managed a ML team in 17 seasons. What’s the basis for predicting his performance if and when he gets the job?

    I’m a lot less worried about who the manager is than I am about Krivsky getting fleeced in another panic trade to shore up the bullpen. I’m hoping the imminent return of Everyday Eddie will stave off any panic moves.

  15. I don’t know that about Dent. The point was that it likely doesn’t matter. Narron does some dumb things, but so does every manager, and there’s no reason to believe Dent would be outstanding.

    This team has problems that are a lot worse than the manager. That’s all I was trying to say. Even if Dent is the best manager ever, it won’t make a difference with this team.

  16. All this debate about Narron and/or the bullpen…I’d just like to see Krivsky grow some balls and be decisive again rather than hemming and hawing and not doing anything to improve this team outside of calling up a minor leaguer here or there. It’s obvious that this team needs outside help.

  17. If I had my way, guys like McBeth, Burton and Salmon would be carrying the mail right now.
