Salvage operation today.
Make up game for Oveido to finally get him a win.
Its probably time to start prepping for 2022 but as long as they can hover around .500 and stay within shouting distance of a playoff spot I guess there is hope for ’21.July 25, 2021 at 9:36 am #167752PugsleyAddamsParticipantPaid - Annual
It took the cubbies bombing us with 6 big runs in the 9th to steal victory away from Ovi in his last start. Talk about being snake-bit. I think if we’re up by 9 in the 9th, Ovi will have a pretty fair shot at notching his maiden ML win here today. If these Reds keep sweeping us series after series, they won’t be able to help themselves from not hating us nearly as much. To be one of the most disliked teams in professional sports means you’re doing a lot of things right. Hopefully Mo & company will start doing a better job at accomplishing this.July 25, 2021 at 10:06 am #167754blingboyParticipantPaid - Annual
Lucky for us we are not facing the Sonny Gray that might have been. He was dominant for some really bad Oakland teams for a couple years before injuries starting cutting into him. How do you go 14-7 for a team that went 68-94? (One of the prospects Beane got for him was called up in May and is 5-3 for the A’s right now.) Too bad 5’10” righties aren’t a thing in the first round anymore but the algos don’t like them.
Let’s hope Oviedo and his 1.500 WHIP can crack the win column today.July 25, 2021 at 10:48 am #167758
Same lineup as yesterday.July 25, 2021 at 10:52 am #167759ZTRParticipantFree
Why did Schildt take Edman out and put Carpenter in las5 night as part of a double switch? Edman had been on base 2 of his 3 plate appearances…July 25, 2021 at 12:26 pm #167762
For the standard double switch reason.
Edman made the last out, was replaced by McFarland I think it was, which puts the pitcher 8 batters away from batting, instead of due up 3rd next inning as Carpenter was in the batting 9th spot of the order.July 25, 2021 at 12:42 pm #167763DavidParticipantFree
We need a spark… and I just don’t see with this team… mainly because they take on the persona f their manager. Whenever the blessed day comes that Schildt is relieved of his duties.. I don’t see another team seeking him out.July 25, 2021 at 12:49 pm #167765DavidParticipantFree
Even a win today and a Milwaukee loss… we’re no better off at than we were Friday. Our only hope is to take 9/13 from the crew and have equal records with the reds and crew. Even with Flare and MM back, I don’t see that happening because of Schildts late game management and not giving his team the best chance to win.July 25, 2021 at 1:01 pm #167767blingboyParticipantPaid - Annual
For the standard double switch reason.
Shildt’s decision to do a double switch there may have been forced because of a short bench due to Yadi’s apparent unavailability.July 25, 2021 at 1:25 pm #167768
When you are pinch hitting a pitcher, “short bench” is being kind.
Poor active roster construction fits better for me.
For instance, Luis Garcia has been on the active roster since July 9th and has logged one IP. I’d prefer a position player on the bench instead.July 25, 2021 at 1:31 pm #167769
Our outfielders are taking over this game.July 25, 2021 at 1:32 pm #167770LACardFanParticipantFree
All three outfielders with a homerun in the same game?
Aren’t they are weakness? Guess they didn’t get the memo.July 25, 2021 at 1:34 pm #167771Cardinal in FranceParticipantFree
Hey I thought the Cards were playing today. Who are these guys mashing long balls all over the place?July 25, 2021 at 1:38 pm #167772
It looks like we have acquired another pitcher who was DFA’d by someone else.
T. J. Zeuch has been acquired in exchange for cash considerations from the #Cardinals, per source. Will be optioned to Class AAA Memphis, joining the pitching staff there. Team will announce later today, likely. @ByRobertMurray first reported the acquisition. #BlueJays

Can Oviedo make it through 5 innings to qualify for the win?July 25, 2021 at 1:46 pm #167774LACardFanParticipantFree

Is your lucky charm watching the game with you today?July 25, 2021 at 1:57 pm #167776
6 HR, 9 BB, 8 K’s
Yah, Zeuch should fit right inJuly 25, 2021 at 2:01 pm #167777
Another 3 hit game for Bader. His last was this past WednesdayJuly 25, 2021 at 2:33 pm #167778
Was busy doing other stuff, tune in and we have scored 9 runs. Could have used some more of that yesterday. Oviedo not lasting long though isn’t good, even this lead isnt safe.July 25, 2021 at 2:44 pm #167779
Yep miller just like he always does is horrible. He should have given up the game a while ago.July 25, 2021 at 2:45 pm #167780
Oviedo may never get a W.July 25, 2021 at 2:46 pm #167781
Miller got bailed out by the umpire, votto should be mad .July 25, 2021 at 2:49 pm #167782Cardinal in FranceParticipantFree
This game is starting to make my duck breast Sunday dinner begin to gurgle. I liked the long ball part better.July 25, 2021 at 2:51 pm #167783WoosterParticipantFree
Just woke up myself Wille- was wondering if it was 9 runs_ looked like it went backwards to 0 without my glasses. Miller only gave up 1 thank goodness
