Reds Tidbits (2011 Season)

    Gomes has no business getting in the lineup vs. a right hander, especially one with good breaking stuff like Carpenter.

    On a good note, Alonso is beginning to tear it up in AAA and is playing left field. He is even hitting lefties close to the same as righties. With Lewis, Heisey, and Alonso all very viable candidates for LF, there is simply no reason the Reds should be trotting Gomes out there on a regular basis. He has 1 good month to his entire resume. That is it. Walt will need to step in and DFA his ass, because Dusty will keep praying to the baseball gods that Gomes turns in a month like last May. In the mean time, he is going to cost this team wins.

    edit: Oops, it's McClellan today, and Carpenter tomorrow. Still a rightly though.

    Yep, that one was only a matter of time. That is probably why Dusty used Leake last night. He wanted to squeeze one more inning out of him to save the bullpen, even though it made no sense to put him out there in the 7th.

    Arredondo has major league stuff, and can pile up the K's. I haven't seen him pitch during his rehab, but his numbers looked really good. From his K rate (1.34 per inning) I am assuming his velocity is back in the mid 90's. If so, this would be a major upgrade in the bullpen.

    Jaxbuck I hate tsun


    I saw him pre injury and have been excited as hell about ever seeing him pitch for the Reds.

    Dude was filthy, as they say. If he's even close to that, which isn't that uncommon anymore post TJ, this was a great move.

    Sonofamothingfucking! Ugh! Never, ever freaking walk Theriot with the bases empty. He only hits singles. Heck, throw one right down the pipe. If he gets a hit, it's likely the same outcome as a walk.

    Good job with the rest of hitters.

    BTW...Theriot has a slugging percentage of .318 with a batting average of .287. I am pretty sure that requires a vag in order to have that slugging percentage with that BA.

    It's not even funny anymore. How much more of this crap do we have to watch? Gomes has no freaking clue at the plate. DFA him. No one in their right mind wants him. Let him figure out things in AAA.

    Finally a first pitch swing. McClellan has been lobbing them right over the plate on the first pitch. His weak ass 87 mph fastball should be put in the seats most of the time, especially where he has been putting it on the first pitch.

    I don't understand teams that shift on Votto. He goes the other way all the time. I guess he doesn't hit many ground balls to the left side, but he hits liners all the time that way that could sometimes be caught by an infielder.

    He hits a lot up the middle. The thing that strikes me as odd is, he's the kind of guy who can make an adjustment and punish a shift it seems.

    Here comes Derp! Before the season is over, I think he might find a way to strike out on 2 pitches.

    He hit the ball. I suppose that's improvement.

    7 pitch inning. Impressive. So glad he's back in the rotation!

    EDIT: Thom can't count. I wasn't looking at the TV, just heard what he said.
