At this point, I just hope the Reds: 1. Know how many outs there are; 2. Don’t give up any grand slams; and 3. Don’t get hammered by the Cardinals!  It would be nice to at least take 1 game before this series is over so that the club doesn’t lose too much ground.  Mat Latos, you’re our only hope!

OK, that’s about as negative and pessimistic as I can be. I don’t really feel that way.  Even though last night’s loss was a bummer, I know the Reds can just as easily take the next two games in the series and suddenly everything is fine and dandy again.  Just trying to appeal to as many Reds “fans” as I can with this game thread!  Discuss the game here and GO REDS!

A simple Reds fan from a simple town. I have been a Reds fan all my life. The 1990 team was crowned Champions during my prime youth years and I grew up idolizing Chris Sabo all the way down to the flat top hair style and the #17.

  1. Want to remind/alert everyone that we are going to start a second Game Thread once we get to around 250 comments tonight. It’s our hope that this will address the instability of the site/service when our comment numbers swell to the heavens. This way, we’ll be able to keep posting at full speed as our Cincinnati Reds gloriously defeat the St. Louis Cardinals.

  2. I was reading an article on blogredmachine.com. it makes a good case that the Cardnials own the back end of the Reds rotation. Bronson Aroyo 0-3 5.96 ERA 4 starts. Mike Leake 0-2 8.27 ERA 3 starts. Homer Bailey 0-2 9.58 ERA 2 starts. All 9 Cardnial victories are against these 3 starters. Mat Latos 2-0 1.42 ERA 3 starts. Tony Cingrani 1-0 5.40 1 start. Cingrani pitched only 5 innings and had an elevated pitch count. The Reds won these 4 starts. Johnny Cueto had a 3.00 ERA last yr vs the Cardnials. So its all about who pitches. The Cardnials handle the soft tossing pitchers. Bailey is the oddity he is a hard thrower the Cardnials have owned. He needs to step it up if the Reds want to win games vs the Cardnials.

    • @Larry1980: I was aware of this. Also the Cardinals have had problems against LHed starters this year.

      Tonite is obviously the Reds best pitching matchup. But Latos needs to go at least 7. The Cardinals have absolutely battered the Reds bullpen this year, except Chapman.

      The bullpen in particular has blown two late leads in St. Louis.

    • @Larry1980: Homer needs to get over his Cardinal problem tomorrow. One hitter who – early in his career – talked about how nasty his stuff was: Albert Pujols.

  4. Last night’s game was disappointing, certainly. Home run balls to Holliday and Craig accounted for 7 instant runs and combined with another maddening example of pitching staff (mis?)management Reds fans and especially the die hards on this site are understandably depressed. But let me propose a thought exercise:

    The Reds are 3 1/2 games out of first with a bit more than a month to play. They have a 2 game series in St. Louis against one of the two teams ahead of them. They have (arguably) their best two starters lined up to pitch – Latos and Bailey. The offense has shown signs of resurgence, especially from the right side – Ludwick looks better each series, Cozart and Mesoraco are hitting, and even Frazier has shown flashes of form. If the Reds can take these two games they are in an excellent position for September, with plenty of games left against the Pirates and Cardinals.

    I don’t know about the rest of you, but that has my attention. I would love to be looking down at the rest of the NL Central, but given the standings I’m pretty excited about the possibilities of right now. Anyone else want to watch a couple of Reds games? If RLN can’t get fired up for these next two games then… why are we Reds fans again? I am. Can’t wait.

  5. Until game 163 there the Reds don’t have a “must win” game. But this feels like a must win game.

    • @al: When a team misses the playoffs by one game, or puts themselves into a one-game/play-in, and loses: which game in the regular season became the, “Must Win Game” ?

      • @wildwestLV: That’s why I said, there’s really no such thing as a must win game until the game that if you don’t win, you go home.

      • @wildwestLV: The game that (mathematically) they must have won to avoid elimination or avoid the one game playoff.

    • @al: If you don’t take them all as must-win games, then you can just as easily be caught behind and not even end up having an actual “must-win” game.

  6. I would not let Leake within 100 yards of a playoff rotation if they are fortunate enough to get that far.

    • @AnnapolisHoosier: No, but he might be valuable as a bat/pinch runner/emergency extra inning pitcher.

      I mean, he’s not Izturis.

      • @vanwilder8: Or an emergency pitcher, if a starter gets injured. Not having him on the playoff roster last year was a screw up.

    • @AnnapolisHoosier: He’s fine, like Arroyo, if he’s dealing. 100+ pitches, against a playoff-caliber team is like playing Russian roulette, though. I know, unlike Bronson, he’s a much younger young man, but it is what it is. Management.

      • @wildwestLV: I optimistically predicted 6 innings and 3 runs allowed for Leake last nite. He did that, but then …

        Except for the inning (3rd ?) with the walk, single, and blast by Holliday, he was a ground ball machine. He can do that as long as he’s getting sink on his pitches.

        Having said that, Cingrani is a much better matchup against the Cardinals.

  7. Playoff roster – last year the Reds carried 14 position players and 11 pitchers

    pitcher locks (9) – Latos, Bailey, Cingrani, Arroyo, Chapman, Simon, Hoover, Parra, LeCure

    others – Cueto, Marshall, Leake, Ondrusek, Partch

    position locks (12) – Votto, BP, Cozart, Frazier, Ludwick, Choo, Bruce, Hanigan, Mesoraco, Heisey, XP, Hannahan

    others – Billy Hamilton, Derrick Robinson, Henry Rodriguez, Izturis, Lutz

    Who you got?

    • @vanwilder8: Are we to assume that Cueto and Marshall are available ? Cueto might be available as a reliever.

    • @vanwilder8: Izturis is already a lock. I would guess Robinson is the extra position player.

      I think Ondrusek will be the odd man out, and Leake will be in the pen.

      If Cueto and/or Marshall are available, then it gets interesting. That would conceivably put Cingrani and Parra on the chopping block.

      • @al: I would think Leake would be out before Cingrani, especially with him being a lefty.

      • @al: Cingrani will be on the roster. Dusty wants him in the bullpen for the postseason. Are you assuming Simon is a lock ? He’s not.
        Last year Simon was on the postseason roster but Leake was not, which turned out to be a mistake.

  8. I’m gonna be positive.

    I’m positive the Reds will play tonight.
    I’m positive the Reds will score.
    I’m positive that the Cardinals will not bat 1.000.

    And i’m positive the Reds will win.

  9. It seems like the Reds have simply cast their lot with the existing roster and that decision was made early on after Ludwick went down after the 1st game of the season. A lot of discussion has revolved around the lack of any trade activity in aquiring players to fill needs on the Reds for 2013. Personally, I can not find fault in not making a trade with someone who is holding a gun to your head, so to speak, and trying to fleece you in the process. Only WJ could elaborate on the lack of action in claiming Byrd off waivers, but WJ doesn’t discuss such matters. That leaves the Reds with their existing roster, for better or worse.

    As long as Ludwick is deemed to be the RH power hitter and run producer this lineup has lacked, why isn’t he hitting cleanup? Since August 17th (10 games), BP has slashed .293/.310/.415 with 1 HR & 1 3B. That’s not bad but a .724 OPS is not particularly impressive for a cleanup hitter. Since August 17th (8 games), Ludwick has slashed .360/.385/.520 with 1 HR & 1 2B. That’s a .905 OPS and is impressive for a cleaup hitter. Both went 0-4 last night. Since the Reds don’t need any help with their lineup from outside the team, they need to start using those available resources as they intended them to be used.

    • @Shchi Cossack: All true, but Dusty believes in set roles and veteran leadership and not clogging the bases.

      Also, toothpicks and sweatbands.

      • @vanwilder8: Actually, I don’t believe the Bakerman believes in veteran leadership. I believe he thinks all veterans should be leaders and, thus, he just needs to sit back and let them be the leaders. He has no leaders on this roster, no one like Rolen would be. If the Bakerman doesn’t step up, if no one else steps up, then this team is probably done as far as leadership goes.

        • @steveschoen: Ludwick’s return was expected to improve things in that area.

          • @pinson343: The Bakerman believed it would. Like I said, I believe the Bakerman thinks all veterans are leader-types. That is wrong. Like Votto, I would not consider him a leader of this team.

      • @vanwilder8: After posting, I also realized that Dusty is going to give BP the chance to get as many RBI’s as possible so BP can pad his personal goals. That would preclude moving anyone else into the cleaup position behind Votto and Choo, the NL leaders in OBP.

  10. I would rather get run over by a bus than lose games to the Cardnials. Especially last night’s game.

  11. It is a great night to play baseball! Lets go Reds!

    How many out is it already? 😛

  12. When asked how his team was going to approach the important stretch of upcoming games, Matheny replied: “The same boring way we always do. That’s leaving nothing on the table every game”

  13. Does anyone know the line-up? Who’s catching tonight is what I’m wondering.

  14. Same as last night

  15. brewers up on the pirates 2 – 0

  16. Chapman better be ready for a 2 inning save.

  17. I would love to see Latos knock Craig on his rear the first time he bats tonite. Anyone else feel the same way?

  18. What in the world is going on to start this game!?

  19. OMG, that is being such a whiny little BS, it’s ridiculous. I can understand why they are whining, a bit, trying to get every little advantage they can get. But, in that respect? Please, seriously?

    • @steveschoen: You know, there may be reasons to call the Cardinals whiny, but that ain’t one of them. All they did was tag Choo who actually DID turn toward second–it was reasonable to try tagging him. The umps didn’t agree, and then explained why to Matheny. There was no whining.

      It’s funny how much Reds fans likes to complain (whine, if you will) about the Cardinals whining. It’s an old trope that may have been true under La Russa, but I don’t see it any more.

      • @yoobee: It was whining. Did Choo turn toward 2nd base? Yes. Did he make any motion to get to 2nd base, to continue on? No way.

        • @steveschoen: Players don’t make the judgment about Choo’s intent to advance–they simply apply the tag. They applied the tag, and the first base ump conferred with the others to see what they thought. I cannot see how that is considered whiny.

          Was it whiny when Votto asked to see the ball that Gomez caught to rob the homerun? It seems like if Holliday had done the same thing, you would have called that whiny.

  20. Fire Dusty. Promote Bryan. #sickofthe’pick

  21. 3-0 Brewers

  22. I think the issue with Votto has nothing to do with his numbers or production necessarily. I believe it is the fact that he whiffs and fouls of a unusually high number of very hittable pitches. Even worse is the amount of times he has taken and looked at good hittable pitches. Very much unlike his previous years. He is a selective hitter but when he is pulling the trigger, the results aren’t there. Its ok to time and calculate but if you are doing that and only end up fouling off a pitch or missing or striking out looking, then clearly something is not right.

    • @fiercev: His numbers are slightly off this year, but I wish every player on the team were having his slightly off season.

  23. If that had been the Cards with 2 out and 2 on, they would find a way to score!

  24. 5-0 Brewers….pile it on

  25. Would have been nice to gotten a couple runs early.

  26. Good to see the Brewers keep hitting against the Pirates. They’re up 5-0 now. Jeff Locke’s ERA is racing toward his FIP finally.

  27. Joey flied out on a pitch out of the strike zone, unusual.

  28. Why is WJ takin to Jim Hendry?

  29. Good Lord. It sort of makes you consider trying to go out and sign pitchers who have had success specifically against St. Louis.

  30. This doesn’t look good already. I’m so tired of losing to the Cardinals, I was really hoping for an easy game tonight.

  31. Amazing. Just….amazing

  32. Go yard Craig so I can go home.

  33. as the joker would say…..”and. here. we. go.”

  34. Y’know what? I can’t watch. I’m turning it off. It’s already too stressful.

    See y’all later.

  35. Latos will be lucky to get out of this inning giving up only 2 runs. If he can, I give the Reds a decent chance of coming back.

  36. Cowboy: That’s the way Cardinal hitters are taught from the time they’re drafted to the big leagues, with runners in scoring position, go the other way.

  37. Baker obviously reading my comments. Has he ever gone to the mound in the first inning just to talk?

  38. So much for being positive. This one is over. Period!

    • @Hunt4RedsOctober: I feel your pain, but it ain’t over just yet. I fully expect Latos to settle down and get in a groove. Reds offense needs to do some business early and often.

  39. TV just scanned both the Reds and Cards dugouts. Cards are full of life and the Red’s dugout looked dead. Granted, the starters were in the field, but this team looks totally dead. Sorry!

    • @cincyreds14: I’m going to say all dugouts look pretty different when the team is playing defense and when the team is batting.

      • @al: I’ve seen that for the last 3 seasons, seriously. Like I said last night, how Chris Welsh said, “The players looked loose in the locker room.” That’s the last thing I want to hear. I want to see some people get fired up, playing hard, brain and body. It’s like with the Bakerman, “As long as we are loose, we will be alright.” Well, they haven’t been.

  40. Could be he is tipping his pitches. Could be, the dugout staff is a braindead puppet show.

    So much for the sense of urgency.

  41. I turned it off after Roider’s base hit. I’d rather catch the clap than look at that creep.

  42. Lord, those Cards are such professional hitters, it’s ridiculous. They make it look so basic. Just put the bat on the ball. Just make contact. I have to go see what it the most number of times they’ve K’ed in a game this season.

  43. Latos capable of settling down from here.

  44. I’m somewhat confused about that double play. Latos looked at the guy at third, then throws to second. Cozart throws to first, and Votto doesn’t even glance toward home as the runner is scoring. Just catches the ball and starts throwing it around the infield. Was there really NO reason to look home, or did Votto just forget what was going on? I’m not saying he actually had a play at home, but how did he know there was no play there? I watched the replay a couple times and I don’t see him even glance toward home.

    • @Baseclogger: He definitely didn’t look home. I assume he had been looking at home while the play was developing and knew that Beltran had already scored. But they didn’t show it on TV or talk about it on the radio. I’m sure Marty wouldn’t have passed up a chance to say something critical about Votto, so it was probably OK.

    • @Baseclogger: I noticed the same thing and agree.

  45. This is gonna sound maybe absolutely batty, but would it be way crazy to, y’know, not try too hard when playing the Cardinals in St.Louis and not care if you lose the series or even get swept? Given their record there, it’d be like the series equivalent of intentionally walking miguel cabrera and taking your chance with prince, which in this case I guess would be the pirates. Concede the series and conserve resources for a team you can beat.

    I realize this is ultra pessimistic, but I dunno if it’s the CRAZIEST strategy on planet earth, given the record.

  46. 5-4 Brewers. Pirates hung 4 on the board against Lohse.

  47. Is it just me or does Mesoraco break his bat more than any other Red?

  48. C’mon Choo, help out Latos. A HR would be gigantic right here.

  49. Can we please get some of that 2 out magic right here? Pretty please?

  50. If this post jinxes us, “Negative Nellies/ Lunatic Fringe/ Insane Asylum Inmates / Etc.” posters, into a win, so be it. I hope it does:

    I’m compiling a top 5 list of actual headlines, about a certain, unnamed MLB manager’s teams, over the last decade, in the postseason. Can anybody help me predict the fifth one?

    1) “Giants can’t hold, WS-clinching, 5-0 lead in Game 6, 2002 World Series”

    2) “Cubs implode in Game 6 of 2003 NLCS”

    3) “Roy Halladay no-hitter lifts Phillies past Reds in Game 1”

    4) “Giants beat Reds 6-4 in dramatic Game 5, advance to NLCS”

    5) ?

  51. How about we go to a 3 man rotation and trade three of our starters to the Braves for some offense? So TOdoesntS!

  52. Maybe Mat Latos should be a player-manager. He’s so emotional.

    • @wildwestLV: I dont know if it showed it on tv but after the Holliday RBI, Latos smacked the ball away with his pitching hand when it was thrown to him. Not the kind of emotion we need.

  53. Cardinals, with 2 outs, drive a ball into the gap. That’s the difference in having a hitting coach and having Brook Jacoby.

  54. Four runners stranded in the first 2 innings, both times one of the runners was on 3rd base. When opportunity knocks ya gotta answer the door.

  55. Cardinals – up the middle, up the middle, up the middle…2 runs.
    Reds – pull, pull, pull…nothing

  56. The Cardnials 1-7 hitters have to be the best in MLB. There are no easy outs on this team. They just are good hitters and they grind out at bats. They also dont swing at the first pitch.

  57. I’m getting so tired of this idea that the Cardinals go the other way all the time, and the Reds need a better manager or hitting coach because of that.

    I haven’t seen the spray charts, maybe the do, maybe they don’t go the other way more than other teams. If it’s true, I think the Reds hitters can figure out that that’s a possibility without a hitting coach. Maybe the Cards are just better hitters?

    Does anyone in the league go the other way more than Votto? You think the Reds don’t get that you can hit to all fields?

    • I’m getting so tired of this idea that the Cardinals go the other way all the time, and the Reds need a better manager or hitting coach because of that.

      Does anyone in the league go the other way more than Votto? You think the Reds don’t get that you can hit to all fields?

      One guy does that for us. Every guy (seemingly) does that for them.

    • @al: Oh, they are better hitters all right. Regardless of which way they “go,” they know how to punish a pitcher. They score early and they give their starting pitcher a chance to get settled and deep into the game. The Reds are playing from behind A LOT.

    • @al: You think the guys are TRYING to hit the other way on pitches outside, but just can’t quite figure out how to do it? When Ludwick rolled over on a ball low and away and grounded weakly to the left side, you think he was trying to punch it to right but just hasn’t quite figured out how to do that?

    • @al: One thing is apparent: they play the game of baseball better then our guys. Reds are a pretty good team, Cards are probably the best team in MLB. Just being objective so the pain is not so bad.

  58. Isn’t it time we realize that we are a good team that just doesn’t have what it takes to be in the category with the likes of the Cards, Dodgers, Braves, Rays, Tigers are in this year.

  59. Pitiful. Joey with nothing in the series. Rally killer.

  60. Major slump. And at the absolute worst possible time.

    • @RedTitan19: He just hasn’t delivered in big spots this year. Hopefully it’s just a 1 year thing and he will be back to “Clutch” Joey next year.

  61. Reds offense is a classic example of unplanned luck.

  62. Case in point with Votto: Joe Kelly challenges him with straight up fastballs and Joey answers with two harmless fouls and then is 0-2. 0-2 is NEVER a good thing. Don’t care how good anyone is, even Miguel Cabrera is not as good with an 0-2 count. End result = very weak and pathetic tailor made double play ball to the short stop. Please, I want a Votto apologist to argue this.

    • @fiercev: How about someone who thinks he is simply another Hal Morris – just a hell of a lot wealthier.

      GO REDS!

    • @fiercev: So the complaint is that Votto hit two foul balls before hitting it relatively hard?

    • @fiercev: Is Joey Votto a failure in your eyes if he doesn’t get a hit every time at bat? You do realize that even the best hitter makes an out over half the time. Votto leads the league in OBP and is third in OPS. He creates more runs than any other hitter in the league. That’s over the entire season, not just one at bat.

      • @Steve Mancuso: He just isn’t coming up big when the team needs him the most. Stats may say otherwise but for the guys that watch every game, it should be obvious. But he is a very skilled hitter, no doubt.

  63. This being the Cardinals, I’m not optimistic, but the Reds have certainly hit some balls well in this game. I think we’ll eventually score. Maybe.

    • This being the Cardinals, I’m not optimistic, but the Reds have certainly hit some balls well in this game. I think we’ll eventually score. Maybe.

      Scoring against the Cardinals has never been a problem. That’s not what beats the Reds. They just don’t have the tools to beat this team.

  64. It hasn’t panned out for any runs, but Kelly is hittable. Hold them at 2, Mat.

  65. Anybody still believing in this team? Just curious?

    • Anybody still believing in this team?Just curious?

      I believe they will play 163 games this year. All other notions are subject to discussion.

      • @cincyreds14: @Johnu1: John – I think that will definitely be the case. Simply won’t matter in the long run though, will it. The Reds as well as their respective cumulative energy level is simply anemic.

        GO REDS!

  66. If Carlos Beltran doesnt resign with the Cardnials should the Reds make a move at him?

    • @Larry1980: No, because as history has shown: if the Cards don’t resign him he isn’t worth the money and/or the length of contract he desires. We are not the Yankees or Dodgers.

    • @Larry1980: Yea, that’s big – should we also be the Card’s personal caddy in addition to their whipping boy?

  67. Don’t you feel like the Cardinals are just toying with the Reds? We got a 2 spot, now we’ll give you a chance for a couple of innings. Then we’ll get a 3 spot and give you another couple of innings. Then we’ll get another 2 spot and say goodnight.

      I figure that by the 7th or so, it should be about 9-1.

  68. Cards announcer Al Hrbosky (spelled wrong I’m sure) concerning Frazier’s batting stance said he asked Jacoby if he taught that, Jacoby replied “No”.

  69. Holliday goes down in a heap – for all we know he has a season-ending broken bone — and Thom is yapping about fantasy football. I really hate these guys.

  70. The Cardinals got three singles in a row in the first inning. Then they hit into a double play. The Reds have the same number of hits as the Cardinals in this game. Is cheering for your team not as much fun as posting as many pessimistic comments as possible? You’d think the Reds were losing this game 10-0.

      Mainly because the Cardinals have runs on the board?

  71. Parrots do what the Reds couldn’t do … score runs against the Broohoos.

  72. Even the Cowboy on the Reds network is losing it – lost track of the number of outs in the bottom of the 3rd as he had a runner at 2nd before he realized the inning was over.

    Man, it should be real exciting at the old ball yard next week, eh?

  73. Have to find a way to get Jay across the plate. Come on Reds!!

  74. Ludwick swings (and pulls, of course) at the first pitch. Really needed to get Bruce to third. Brantley implied that Ludwick didn’t hustle on the run.

  75. Ground ball outs that move the runner to … um … yeah, that’s the plan.

  76. Stupid, lazy swing by Ludwick. Byrd > Ludwick.

  77. Just sad – very sad. Cozzy pick ’em up baby!

  78. So I guess hoping for a walk, yeah … that’s the plan.

  79. Cowboy just stated that strike 2 looked like a pretty good pitch to hit.

    Have these guys quit?

  80. Taking strike 3 is inexcusable.

  81. From 3-0 to a strikeout looking. That kinda feels like a metaphor for the whole season.

  82. Reds again demonstrating the hitting philosophy: Swing when you don’t need to, then get super selective with two strikes. Nothing changes. Ever.

  83. These guys are afraid, instead of just playing the game.

  84. And there, folks, is the extent of the Reds offense. Unplanned luck.

  85. Are the Reds really as bad as they look? Or is it simply systemic? Grandpa is taking a nap on the bench.

  86. Christ!!!!!!!

  87. Nothing like a live TOOTBLAN

  88. This is comical now.

  89. Why in the hell did he hold up Bruce??????

  90. DUMB, DUMB, DUMB!!!!! TOOTBLAN!

    Someone’s head should roll.

  91. TOOTBLAN

  92. wow that is all I have to say.

  93. Un. Believable.

  94. Massive FUBAR TOOTBLAN. Another excellent runner management job by the 3rd base coach…

  95. I don’t believe it, this is painful to watch.

  96. Why in the world does none of this amaze me?

    And Grandpa is still asleep on the bench.

    Still…

  97. Who’s dumber on that play — Cozart or Berry?

  98. Apologies to Berry, that was on Cozart. Either way, total attention deficit disorder.

  99. Latos is 2-2. There, I said something positive. I should feel better, right?

  100. You ALWAYS and I mean ALWAYS run on John Jay’s arm!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The 1990 team was crowned Champions during my prime youth years and I grew up idolizing Chris Sabo all the way down to the flat top hair style and the #17. I have passed that love of the Reds down to my three boys who love the game and the Reds just as much as I do! Follow me on twitter @CoachWilson17
