Game Thread: Reds at Brewers — 2008.07.12

Nice win last night, followed by Edinson Volquez’s turn in the pitching rotation. That sounds good, doesn’t it? On the mound for the Brewers is Seth McClung. I generally root for McClung when he pitches, since I know his brother fairly well. The Reds beat up on McClung pretty badly earlier this season; we’ll see if anything changes tonight.

The Reds still have a shot at a 4-2 road trip, which would be outstanding. Discuss the game here….

  1. According to Welsh, Dusty’s apparently saving Burton’s arm.

    Great pitch there by Weathers.

  2. Back to the subject of Jay Bruce; if the Reds could get him on track and if they could stay healthy then they could play some good baseball after the All-Star break.

  3. It also would be nice of Jocketty could do something in the next week or two to strengthen this bench because it flat out stinks. When the choices are Patterson, Phillips, and Valentin you might as well let the pitcher hit.


    Which one of those tonight was the meaningless shot?


  5. Re Y-City Jim: Indeed. The Reds’ opponents winning percentage for their remaining schedule is under .500. They still have 13 games against the Astros and 10 more against the Brewers. They only play the Cubs 6 more times, but they have the Cards for 9 games. The rest of the games are what should be relatively easy victories…

  6. Eric Gagne might actually be uglier than Casey Blake. It’s probably the glasses that send him over the top.

  7. EE! Man, I’m happy the Reds didn’t get Gagne…instead they stole Milwaukee’s closer then the Brewers signed Gagne..talk about blunders! 😆

  8. Chad – Welsh said that since Burton, isn’t used to working a full season, it’s best for Dusty to give him a break every now and then. That, and because he pitched a lot on the homestand.

    I don’t know.

  9. could this be sign of things to come? 😛 😀 🙂 :mrgreen: 😯 😮 😆 😛 😉

  10. How come C.C. Sabathia isn’t playing for the N.L. All-Star team? Wasn’t he originally picked to play for the A.L. team?

  11. If nothing else, I’m happy that Dusty is concerned this season, for the first time in his career, with not abusing his pitchers.

  12. Is any time a good time for Majewski?

    Gagne reaches a new low by giving up a base hit to Corey Patterson.

  13. Thom Brennaman puzzled why Reds fans are so critical of David Weathers, which means he must read the blogs. He may have a point since he has been pretty solid the last month except for the Pittsburgh game on July 1.

  14. At least three wins on this road trip against the top two teams in the National League. As a Reds fan, I couldn’t be happier. Nice job, men.

  15. I’m also thrilled. After the first two losses to the Reds, I was ready to throw in the proverbial towel on the season. At least now they’ll go into the all-star break on a bit of roll (no matter what happens tomorrow)… We can still hope!

  16. It should be noted that Edinson looks like he’s back to pitching how he has most of the season (which is great news). 7 IP, 6 hits, 2 runs (1 earned), 2 walks, and 10 Ks. I hope that start pushes him over the top for the starting spot in the All-Star game (not that it means anything, but with only 1 Red there, you gotta root for it happening!)

  17. Fogg was good yesterday, so let’s have Homer be good tomorrow and sweep the Brewers! (I never thought I’d be saying that this road trip!)

  18. If there is one line up I would not want to face it is the Texas Rangers, good grief they beat Lackey like a minor league pitcher yesterday. Of course they lost like 11-10

  19. If the Reds face Texas I would want it to be in Cincinnati. The Rangers bat 34 points lower on the road.

  20. Gagne’s so bad, Corey Patterson hit a game-winning home run off him early this season. Go Reds !!!
