First Annual RN Get-Together at GAB Game Thread

A bunch of us will be at the game tonight, for the first annual RN Get-Together at GAB. I hope you guys don’t burn the place down while we’re gone.

Bronson Arroyo will be pitching for the good guys, which seems hand-picked for me, doesn’t it? Here’s hoping for a great one.

Go Redlegs. Believe.

  1. I would’ve sent Heisey to PH after bringing on the LH pitcher. No way the Cubbies were going to burn 2 relievers there.

  2. @Kyle: I liked Francisco against the RHP. Once the LHP was brought on, would’ve PH with Heisey.

  3. Votto didn’t go there, but he caught a break on one of those pitches that was called a ball.

  4. @Kyle: I agree with you. But if you brought him up to be used as a LH PH, you gotta go with him there. But still, as soon as the LHP came on, would’ve brought on Heisey. Gotta figure the JB and MVP both being lefties, they weren’t going to bring on a RHP and burn the LHP for nothing.

  5. Time running out. Don’t the REDS know about the RLN get-together tonight? Can’t disappoint Chad and the boys.

  6. At least the Nats are adding to their lead, but I am frustrated by the Reds’ offense tonight.

  7. @John D.: Same here. Reds have the 7-8-9 hitters up in the 9th, too. Hopefully Marmol can’t throw strikes tonight.

  8. All that seperates the REDS from a 5 game lead is a sweet 9th inning comeback.

  9. Reds lose. Absent a collapse in DC, they lost no ground. The season is one day closer to being over, which works in the Reds favor. Still, it would have been good to get a win on RN night at the ballpark.

  10. WOW. 14-5 Nats. At least the lead stays at 4. The magic number goes to 31, I think.

  11. The Cards bullpen is going to be spent after what they’ve been through the last week or so.

  12. @hoosierdad: Well, those pesky rules say you can’t take a pitcher out w/o facing a batter anyways. So they could have had Heisey vs Russell if they’d have wanted.

    I would have pinch hit Heisey there, period. You know they want Russell in for Bruce and Votto, so they’re either going to have to bring in a righty for one batter or leave in Wells. Either way, a better matchup than Francisco vs Russell.

  13. Anybody know what happened in the Cards/Nats game? Nats 1B coach + pitcher NOT in the game both ejected in the 3rd.

  14. @hoosierdad: No, I don’t but there was an odd play a few moments ago where Nyjer Morgan ran into the catcher instead of stepping on home plate and then was called out (the ball was nowhere near the plate) because other Nats’ players touched him. It was an odd thing to do.

      Temamate Nationals’ catcher Ivan Rodriguez pushed him back to the homeplate. Only know this because I just saw the replay on ESPN>

  15. @hoosierdad: I’m not sure if this is true or if it has been discussed here, but I heard somewhere that the Cards one off day after the 20 straight games is now being used to make up a Marlins rain out. I’m not sure if this is true or not, but if so, that would mean that their off day before the Reds series would be their last rest day for the rest of the season.
