  1. Wonder how many pitches Crappy saw this month? Less than 100?

  2. I’m hoping Patterson sees, oh, about 0 pitches in July.

  3. We need Eddie back ASAP. Hairston is playing some pretty lame SS.

  4. Yep, Hairston’s 15 minutes are up.

  5. I wish JB would catch fire again.

  6. Is Bruce get hitting advice form Crappy? What the heck was he swinging at there?

  7. Bruce is 2-3 tonight. Maybe he’s heating up again.

  8. Wow, Patterson took a pitch!

  9. At least Bruce striking out keeps CP from leading off the next inning πŸ˜€

  10. It’s even worse than I realized. According to Marty: K-Patt, you have the lowest on-base percentage of all Reds position players in the last 48 years.

  11. Crappy down to .190 after the fly out off an offspeed pitch.

    Is there a LHer going for Cleveland tomorrow?

  12. Bako looks like John Kinsella.

  13. Marty adds a qualifier the next inning – lowest OBP of all Reds’ position players with at least 180 plate appearances.

  14. yet another broken bat.

  15. “That will make a nice lamp back in Puerto Rico.”

    George Grande guilty of some serious stereotyping of the Latin Americans.

  16. Is Hairston injured again by that HBP? This joke isn’t funny anymore.

  17. Dunn with .750 OBP tonight. Is that acceptable?

  18. Chris Speier is starting to stretch in the dugout.

  19. Is Junior’s bat hollow? Nothing jumps off of it.

  20. Yeah, preach. Speier or else the Reds sign Pokey Reese from whatever beer league he is playing in.

  21. Advice to Jerry – Don’t attempt to knock over Lumpy.

  22. CP went 3 for 5 on April 9. Since then he’s batted .164 in 158 ABs..think Dusty realizes this?

  23. Bray has the initial hit out of the way. Strike out the next two now.

  24. Someone please alert Dusty Baker to the strengths and weaknesses of his players.

    I’m sick of watching Bray brought in to face a lefthander, Weathers brought in to protect a small lead, and Patterson allowed to play at all.

  25. I’m a little late weighing in on Jim’s comment at 112, but Bako DOES look like John Kinsella. It’s amazing. Same position and everything.

  26. Yep, more foolishness, Bray always gives up a hit to the first batter he faces. Of course CP fell getting to the ball, what an idiot

  27. Oh crap, Weathers is in. Is a five run lead enough of a cushion?

  28. Where’s Burton? Idiot

  29. Get Crappy one of those LifeAlert necklaces.

    “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up.”

  30. I long for the day to come when DUSTY BAKER IS GOING, GOING, GOOOONNNEEEE!!!!!!!

  31. Weathers being the BadA**!!!

  32. As if Dusty knew that was going to happen? You know they might could get someone for Weathers by trading him…just don’t make a deal with the yankees

  33. Geesh!!! 1st pitch flyout. Crappy is so freakin’ clueless.

    .189

  34. Is Patterson even coachable? I mean he is still doing the same knucklehead crap that he was doing two months ago.

  35. Forget the Interstate, CP’s next stop is the state route!

  36. Good thing that Patterson is in the OF…it’s as if Dusty and Crappy P want to lose

  37. I’m convinced that Patterson is getting dumber with each game he plays.

  38. I hate Crappy Outterson 😑 😈 πŸ‘Ώ

  39. JB!!!

  40. Are there any catchers in the Reds system that look promising? The 2 on the roster now are absolutely worthless at the plate. Notice I didn’t count Valentin. He’s a third baseman now….gulp!

  41. Not close to being ML ready. Uncle Walt will have to address it through a trade or free agency.

  42. I’m just getting sick and tired of hearing how Ross and Bako are great “pitch and catch guys”. I’m pretty sure that’s code for, can’t hit a lick.

  43. Close it out, Coco.

  44. Nice to see Dusty has saved the $46 million man for a 5 run lead.

  45. Eric Wedge looks like he is hiding. Sort of like Henry Winkler’s character in “Waterboy.”

  46. Speaking of lookalikes, Fasano looks like Borat.

  47. Who’s that kid in the Reds dugout? Oh, it’s Cueto.

  48. Interesting people in togas. Actually, I wish the Reds fans were that crazy.

  49. Looks like the Reds will be 20-19 with crappy p in the line up if they win tonight

  50. Yea, we win.

  51. Sweet, I was looking at the ERA of the pitchers tonight…all below 4.00 except JC…and he is on his way down with a few more games like that.

  52. Is Cueto under 5.00 ERA yet?

  53. And this one belongs to the Reds. A shutout, even.

  54. Glad I could help the Reds win tonight. My four at-bats were awesome, and I almost caught that fly ball hit three steps in front of me.

    DevilsAdvocate – At least no one can ever accuse me of clogging the bases. I’ll swing at a feint to first.
