The Reds were frustrating late last night, leaving runners on base like crazy in the last 2 innings.  They will try to rebound today by sending Johnny Cueto back out in the rain.

But if the game gets you down like it did me last night, you can always discuss the similarity in looks between Mike Maddux and Michael Gross.  One of which has to look at Derrick Turnbow and Eric Gagne everyday.  The other fights tremors and was the father of Alex P. Keaton.

                     

Let’s hope we are discussing a Reds win today! Discuss it here…

  1. Yuk. Well, at least it’s free baseball.

  2. Daaaaammmnnnn … just missed that one

  3. Blech. Extras innings. (Reds 0-1, Brewers 3-0 in extras…means the Reds are due!)

  4. I guess Mota has a 1.23 ERA for a reason huh?

  5. Why isn’t big check closer boy still out there. Weathers may be the only pitcher, Fogg aside, Coffey has outpitched.

  6. Shocker…Weathers gives up a hit to start the 10th.

  7. I’m no fan of Dave Weathers.

    I thought that was a mistake by Votto.

  8. It’s getting a little Stormy out there.

    Nice play by Votto.

  9. i would not have pulled cordero

    and if i did, i would have brought in affeldt

  10. I can’t even remember the last time the Reds got a force at 2B on a sac bunt attempt.

  11. I agree, Chris. You go for the sure out. With that being said, I’m glad it worked.

  12. It was only a mistake by Votto if he threw to second while Valentin was yelling 1st base. Valentin’s job is to direct traffic on that play.

  13. If Fielder was right handed, that guy is out. Valentin did not help Weathers out on that. Weathers didn’t miss my much.

    “Weathers is in a sticky jam.” Where have I heard that before: oh, ALL THE TIME.

  14. Here comes Bill Hall with his standard 3-run HR.

  15. Bill Hall….great.

  16. Why do I hear the theme to the movie “Jaws” every time Hall steps up to bat?

  17. does it have to be bill hall?

  18. Weathers isn’t getting that same pitch. He was paying attention, umpire might have fixed the zone a little.

  19. You have to give it to the home plate ump, he is consistently inconsistent.

  20. Just a base-clearing double. My bad.

    Eff Weathers, BTW.

  21. Stormy and Bill Hall is a winning combination. For the Brewers.

  22. Mother F-ing Hall.

  23. That was good hitting by Hall, it was a pretty good pitch. He’s a thorn in our side.

  24. Yep, that was the Jaws theme I heard!

  25. Later all, enjoy the end of hope, I got yard work to do 😥

  26. OH, C’MON. GIVE US THE STRIKE!

  27. welsh talking about how that was actually good pitching by weathers. it wasn’t that bad of a pitch, if you hadn’t just thrown it 6 times in a row. my god, even i knew what was coming.

    i don’t know if that’s on javy or weathers, but they gave that one to hall.

  28. that’s all on weathers, I don’t care how big a thorn Hall has been – weathers doesn’t have the stuff to pitch at this level.

  29. …but we got the next one in the dirt called…

  30. OH, come on already. That was a strike for nine innings.

  31. Looks like Belisle just got his roster spot.

  32. Weathers is now hurt…

  33. Stormy hurt. Here comes Burton.

  34. Baker thinks Weathers is injured. Oh Dusty, you’ll learn soon enough: that’s just the way he is.

  35. Nothing like coming in on a 3-2 count.

  36. thanks for “pitching through the pain” dave. i love tough guys who lose games.

  37. Hopper in for Dunn… Patterson still, inexplicably, in the game.

  38. Burton got that pitch.
    Baker thinks Weathers is injured. Oh Dusty, you’ll learn soon enough: that’s just the way he is. 😮

  39. Nifty work: a 1-pitch strikeout for Burton.

  40. Why does this seem so familiar?

  41. When Gagne or Turnbow is on the mound, there’s hope.

  42. Thom is pointing out that Dusty just boofed the double-switch thing entirely. He just chose to have Hopper hit, rather than Hatteberg (4th this inning, off a RH pitcher, presumably with runners on).

  43. Send down Coffey and DFA Weathers so Belisle and Bray can come up

  44. Announcers are wondering why the double switch was done the way it was. Doesn’t make a lot of sense to me either.

  45. Boy Weathers sure is good at changing speeds, you have to admit, going from that 87 mph fastball to the 84 mph slider is pretty intense stuff.

  46. Gagne’s getting the outside pitch on the lefty.

  47. sure, he is good at changing speeds, but it doesn’t help that the batters know what is coming.

  48. man did EE just ground out to short? never seen him do that before.

  49. ugh. are we back in the cellar yet?

  50. I’ve had it. Already.

  51. Reds’ record is a convenient 7-11. ½ game out of the basement, pending the Astros game this evening.

  52. Aw, come on guys! Tomorrow’s Aaron Harang Growth Chart Day!

  53. what? and you thought Weathers wouldn’t blow the game.

  54. Belisle to start in place of Fogg Monday. Hallelujah.

  55. Belisle to start in place of Fogg Monday. Hallelujah.

  56. With the young guys and Arroyo not going deep, we need 6 starters on this team.

  57. Bill Hall:
    “I know I’ve had success here, so that puts an ease to my mind. I always seem to do something when I come here — when I play against them in general, actually.”

    Love how he goes out of his way to basically say that it’s not GABP – it’s the Reds’ ptichers. Ouch!

  58. Bring Jay Bruce up, put him in Center and bat him leadoff. I know he’s left handed, not a lead-off hitter, etc. So what. That is a huge tradeoff in OPS from Patterson and Bruce historically has had a good OBP in the minors plus he’s not a guy that’s going to hit 40-50 homers at this stage in his career. Swap out Hopper. Bring up any kind of right handed bat and swap out Castro.

    Keep BP 3rd, swap Dunn and Griffey (Dunn 4, Griffey 5).

    Bring up Homer Bailey and Bray for the pen and stick Belisle in the rotation. Send out Hopper, Coffey and Fogg.

    This 40-man is more talented than any Reds team I have seen in awhile. Poor construction is costing games.

  59. And just for once (once every 17 years isn’t asking a lot), can we worry about winning and not a player’s development…. If Bruce can help us in Center and Bailey can help us out of the pen, why are they not here?
