RHP Adam Wainwright (6-7, 3.99) vs. RHP Tyler Mahle (2-10, 4.82)

Waino has been good the last couple of months. This Reds pitcher doesn’t seem to have been good for the entire year. Different guys stepping up to carry the offense will be key. It’s been O’Neill, Goldy, Dejong, and Edman lately at times. Gonna need one of them or others to step up tonight.July 19, 2019 at 9:00 am #98509

Waino’s home/away splits are a bit alarming. He is much much better at Busch. Hopefully he can give us at least 6 innings at GAB tonight. Our bullpen needs a break as we are in the middle of a long stretch of games w/o a day off.
Speaking of that I am surprised we haven’t seen more of the Memphis shuttle this year to keep the pen fresh. There has been some but not as much as last year it seems.July 19, 2019 at 9:31 am #98512

The Memphis staff is not where it was last season. For instance, last year’s opening day roster was
At the moment, the rotation is
Cabrera(put on the IL yesterday)
See the difference?
8 (eight) MEM pitchers are on the IL…. 5 starters. The AA and A-adv staffs are loaded with prospects that have been pushed along to cover the spots vacated by the injured. The result is the farm system up and down having a dreadful season.July 19, 2019 at 12:11 pm #98519
The pen had better be ready tonight.
Wainwright this season:
Home 9 starts: 5-2, 2.33

Career at GABP:

I was wondering with Gyorko, Carp, and even Yadi out, who is our primary backup 1bman?
I know several guys CAN probably play there, but i wonder who would be the guy to give Goldy a day off? If Ravelo was up it would be a no brainer, but he isnt.
The gut reaction is that JMart would be the guy, but just like Wong in CF I think that they don’t want to even go down that road again outside an emergency.
Which makes me believe the Wieters or Knizner is the backup 1bman, I know I saw Knizner play there a bit in ST so i think maybe he is the the backup 1b man right now. I feel like Wieters can play there too, but I think he is stronger as catcher so in a situation where you need to play a backup 1bman Knizner gets the call IMO as Wieters would be the better guy to play catcher. It still protects you from the catcher getting hurt, but does up the chances either of them coudl get hurt.
Yes, Munoz, Edman, Sosa, and probably DeJong CAN play it, but i think maybe Knizner is the guy.
thoughts? It isnt that big of a deal I am just curious (almost in lines of who the emergency catcher is…which is probably far less probable of happening and thus curious about the info) as if it was a long injury i think Ravelo comes right up, but a day here or there for Goldy I think it is interesting to consider as Carp looks to be out for a while and Yadi and Gyorko too.
Goldy will need a day off at some point.
anyways, I am think Waino turns an old school gut it out 5 innings 3 or less…gives the offense a fighting chance if the bats show upJuly 19, 2019 at 2:42 pm #98529
Padres jumped out in front of the Cubs 3-0 on a sac fly by Renfroe and a two run dinger by Machado.
A grand slam by Rizzo in the 3rd has the Cubs back on top 4-3.
And I am calling a big dong by Goldfinger tonight in Cincinnati.
r/Esteemed Rat <~~~~who will be having cheeseburgers on the grill, bar-b-q chips, banana cream pie, and a Mt. Dew for supper. Then during the rest of the game a 7×50 Palma Real cigar. Whitey Herdog will be on the sofa with me.

Padres and Cubs now tied 5-5 heading to the last of the 8th. A solo blast in the top of the 8th by Josh Naylor tied the score. Go Pads! Go Pugs!

Unfortunately the Cubs won today 6-5 so we need to win to stay 2 1/2 games back. Cubs are 6-1 since the all star break.

A fielding error in the last of the 8th by Hosmer was the key play that allowed the Cubs to score the winning run.July 19, 2019 at 6:18 pm #98558

No wonder you’ve been having dizzy spells, Esteemed Rat. I think you have had that same dinner like 6 times in the past 2 weeks. We need to get you a little lady to help spruce up your diet. We don’t want to lose you 25 years early, Rat.
I think Goldschmidt is going downtown tonight too…..maybe twice. I’m calling this one 11-10. Birds.July 19, 2019 at 6:18 pm #98559
This Reds pitcher throws a ton of fastballs and the Cards are good at hitting fastballs. The numbers say it’s a good matchup. So far it seems guys aren’t picking up the ball too well.July 19, 2019 at 6:40 pm #98561
The ump has a generous zone going tonight, to say the least. Suarez and David Bell have already been ejected.July 19, 2019 at 7:19 pm #98563
Waino with his usual bad road pitching and the Cards are now in a tough spot. Hopefully they can hit the Reds’ own bad pitcher soon.July 19, 2019 at 7:24 pm #98564
Is there anyway, anyway possible to only have Waino pitch during home games? His home/road splits are polarity. Its a night and day difference.July 19, 2019 at 7:40 pm #98565
My goodness, that was embarrassing for Wainwright. I bet a couple of those guys haven’t hit like that since high school.July 19, 2019 at 7:46 pm #98566
7-0 after 4. This is over. Hopefully Wacha can go 3-4 innings and save the bullpen.July 19, 2019 at 8:08 pm #98567
Let Wacha pitch it out or put Leone out there. Come back to win tomorrow.July 19, 2019 at 8:10 pm #98568
Edmonds was critical of the OF positioning as what looked to be a routine fly to RF dropped in front of Martinez. Interesting.July 19, 2019 at 8:28 pm #98569
Fortunately for the Cards, Matt Bowman came in, the Reds defense was snoozing and all of the sudden, it is a 7-5 game in the sixth.July 19, 2019 at 8:39 pm #98570
I feel really badly for those who turned this game off. Martinez’ three-run HR on a fat, full-count pitch caps a 10-run sixth – and the Cards are still batting. GABP is full of fans there for fireworks night.July 19, 2019 at 8:40 pm #98571
What an inning!! Jmart with the three run homer to make it ten runs in the 6th now!July 19, 2019 at 8:41 pm #98572

Just back from dinner….looks like it’s going to be a dandy finish. Waino amazingly off the “L” hook.July 19, 2019 at 8:42 pm #98573
Well ain’t this somethin’?
