Game Thread: Brewers at Reds (2013.05.11)

Mat Latos will look to stay perfect and lower that sparkling 2.23 ERA.

Brandon Phillips will look to drive in more RBI and make a few more great defensive plays.

Joey Votto will look to hit balls hard.

Shin-Soo Choo will look to get on base.

Dusty Baker will look to do Dusty Baker things.

It’s an earlier start time than usual today.  The Reds and Brewers kick off just after 4:00 so clear your schedule and watch the Reds Go!  Discuss the developments of the game here!


  1. santa barbara reds fan says:

    Latos is a head case. Period.

  2. Sergeant2 says:

    Latos mind is elsewhere.

  3. vared says:

    Stepped away from the game for a bit: can someone fill me in on what the Latos comments above are about, assuming it’s something more than just not being effective today?

    1. mlb says:

      @vared: aside from having control problems, he failed to cover first on a ground ball to Votto.

  4. Mwv says:

    What voodoo is this offense today?

  5. hoodlum says:

    THAT was a poor at bat by Cozy. Is he trying to get this game overwith or something?

  6. pinson343 says:

    Paul should have scored on Choo’s pop up. Cost a run. And in this game, you never know.

  7. santa barbara reds fan says:

    Latos gets rattled way too easily by a bad call or an error behind him. That’s no secret. He failed to cover first after an error in a late September game last year. That’s ridiculous.

  8. pinson343 says:

    I missed his earlier innings, but Latos was upset in the 6th by what should have been a called strike 3. He’s got to get over that. Walk around for a couple of seconds, then forget about it.

  9. jas_428 says:

    Still concerned about Votto’s whiffs, weird swings and lack of power.

    1. Jason Linden says:

      @jas_428: His strikeout rate isn’t significantly off his career level. Power has been a bit down, though.

    2. pinson343 says:

      @jas_428: Joey’s always taken weird swings, when he guesses wrong. He’s often followed a weird swing with a HR, we’ll see that again I’m sure.

      1. Jason Linden says:

        @pinson343: Just tweeted this, Votto is hitting .367/.486/.533 in May. Those are not numbers to worry about.

  10. Mwv says:

    BP being BP.

    1. pinson343 says:

      @Mwv: And without BP being BP, the Brewers could be back in this game.

  11. pinson343 says:

    They hit 3 bullets in a row off Ondrusek.

  12. pinson343 says:

    Nice play by Hannahan.

  13. pinson343 says:

    Hoover showing what to do with a 6 run lead, straight at ’em.

  14. CharlotteNCRedsFan says:

    If Jay Bruce gets the day off tomorrow, I’m going to become a Royal’s fan. Dusty can not be that big of an idiot. Can he?

  15. desertred says:

    You have to ask?
