  1. Tom, the daily DOTF with my morning coffee gets the day started on a good note. Thanks.

    My goodness, is that Meso, a catcher, hitting 3rd for the Bats and clogging up all of those bases? Pure unadulterated sacrilage if you ask me, despite going 1-3 with a 2B & a BB.

    Ondrusek goes down to AAA and has 2.2 IP with 3 BB, 4 H, 2 ER, 3 SO. That’s not a particularly good argument for making the post season roster with the big club. Hoover comes up to the show and has 3.0 IP with 1 BB, 3 H, 0 ER, 3 SO. His good early ML results combined with his outstanding results in AAA and his recent good ML results has to grant him very serious consideration for the post season roster at this point.

    What the heck happened in the 7th inning of the Blue Wahoos’ game? With two out & runners on 1B & 2B, a single to LaMarre in CF plates two runs and the hitter doesn’t even get to 2B on the throw? The guy on 1B isn’t that fast. Did anyone see or hear the play? I missed that game and it just doesn’t sound right.

  2. @BloodyHo: In the boxscore Barnhart had an error. Combined with bad baserunning anything is possible.

    Is anyone asking the question why Mesoraco was sent down now this late in August with a chance not to be on the playoff roster? There isn’t many AAA games left so why not send him down earlier in the season? Something must have happened or the Reds didn’t like his calling of the game? Still feeling effects of the concussion? His batting hasn’t been anything all year long. He’s hit to good the past few years not to even have a hot week in 2012.
