Game Thread: Reds at Marlins — 2007.07.19


Matt Belisle vs. Sergio Mitre tonight at the Fish Palace as the Reds begin a weekend four-game series with the Marlins.

The comeback is on, by the way. The Reds are still in last place in the National League Central, but now they are tied with the Astros for last. Plus, they’re just a half-game out of fourth place in the Central.

Milwaukee and Chicago can begin sweating. The Little Red Machine is coming to get them.

The madness continues tonight. Discuss it here.


  1. Jared says:

    Nah, he can still put men on base as well as anyone.

  2. DevilsAdvocate says:

    Ricky Stone warming up now.

  3. Y-City Jim says:

    Take the door and slam it in their face, Todd!

  4. DevilsAdvocate says:

    Brantley: “You cannot pitch, with your right hand, if that right hand, is around your throat.” What? Marty: “Absolutely right. It’s a physiological impossibility.” Zuh?

  5. Y-City Jim says:

    How long has the current GM been on the job in Florida?

  6. Y-City Jim says:

    My guess is Brantley is saying Coffey chokes in pressure situations.

  7. Y-City Jim says:

    Should have kept the right hand around his throat on that bunt.

  8. DevilsAdvocate says:

    Larry Beinfest has been Marlins GM since 2002.

  9. Y-City Jim says:

    Thanks, DA.

    I wish the Reds had some of the prospects he has come up with.

    Coffey removes right hand with a strikeout.

  10. DevilsAdvocate says:

    Clutch! An eighth inning by the Reds bullpen passes by scoreless!

  11. DevilsAdvocate says:

    Now Weathers warming in the bullpen.

  12. Y-City Jim says:

    Are we not three outs away from the longest winning streak of the year?

  13. Chris W. says:

    Come on David. 1-2-3 Tonight!

  14. DevilsAdvocate says:

    Oh, Stormy. Leadoff walk? We don’t need this.

  15. Y-City Jim says:

    Valium time!

  16. Chris W. says:

    So much for that idea.

  17. Chris W. says:

    Sheesh! That was a rocket.

  18. Y-City Jim says:

    Thank you, Mr. Ed!

  19. Jared says:

    Hey, a liner to EE means he doesn’t throw it away.

  20. Chris W. says:

    1 more Stormy!

  21. DevilsAdvocate says:

    Stanton staying loose in the pen, in case.

  22. Chris W. says:

    4 in a row !!

    Look out Brewers! πŸ™„

  23. Y-City Jim says:

    Wow! Nice comeback win.

  24. Jared says:

    Does that mean we passed off the 8th inning woes to Florida?

  25. DevilsAdvocate says:

    Whew. “Inclement” Weathers finds a way.

    7-5 Final! I believe you’re right, that ties the longest winning streak of the season.

  26. Chris W. says:

    Don’t look now fellas, but we’re out of the cellar!

  27. Chris W. says:

    In fact, that wins moves us up to 4th, percentage points ahead of the Pirates.

  28. DevilsAdvocate says:

    Baby steps. That’s now a tie for fourth place (pct ahead of Pittsburgh), with third place STL four games farther up.

  29. Y-City Jim says:

    Actually we are in 4th place by .001 percentage points!

    Pirates, BTW, are shopping Jack Wilson.

  30. Y-City Jim says:

    and St. Louis got smoked by Atlanta today!

  31. Y-City Jim says:

    Freel trying to find words during his postgame interview.

  32. Tom says:

    I wish we were shopping our starting SS.

  33. Y-City Jim says:

    Tonight’s starting SS or the regular starting SS?

  34. Y-City Jim says:

    Tomorrow would be a nice time for the Dr. to show up and pitch a complete game.

    Anyone have stats on the bullpen during the past 14 games?

  35. Chris says:

    Reds pitchers, overall, during July (before tonight)

    131 IP, 4.05 ERA, 136 H, 52 BB, 102 K

    Full-season: 4.68 ERA.

  36. Chris says:

    On this road trip (before tonight):

    7 games (4-3 record), 3.55 ERA, 66 IP, 73 H, 28 BB (!), 57 K.
