Wow... the Pirates have scored 8 runs in the 10th....

Yeah dave, that's an unusual line: Pirates 10, Reds 2, Bottom 10th.

this game needs more less sucking.

and lots more hom rons.

go bases balls.

tie game.

MIL and HOU have lost, so even if if the comeback fails atleast all we lose is a game off the sked.

Hey..another Cub gets picked off and costs the Cubs a run!!! It must be a Friday night game...or a Monday...or a Wednesday...

Or any game that the Cubs are involved in!!!!

Damn!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

this inning rocks.

Hell yeah Crunch!!!

I KNEW it was worth staying up late for this one!

Hey this is actually fun! Anyone notice how none of the hits in the 7th were on the first pitch? PLEASE tell me the Cubs noticed...

this new inning kinda sucks.

Lol...Hey Gooz...the frying pan, or the fire?

oh that's right - the real problem is the craptastic relief corps.

that game was a huge pile of wtf.

bob howry - you are a disgustingly overpaid disgrace. please go away.

This team is so easy not to like.

oh - and bob, take scotty eyre with you....thanks.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

someone should tell that piece of crap Howry that he is not going to be effective throwing fastballs at 91 and no breaking ball.

i am wondering why lou pulled wuertz out...he throws 6 pitches in the 7th and mows them down..he in a big hurry to get to howry? LOL

I think by now Sweet Lou must think he was run over by an elderly Florida driver in December and has been in hell ever since.

  • Boras is 63, maybe he'll be retired or dead by the time Bryant, Russell, Almora, Albertos all hit free agency. Doubt he will be before Jake hits there though.

  • Interesting choices when guys get healthy.

    LaStella, Fowler & Soler replace Coghlan, Almora and Sczcur? I assume they don't want Almora to sit.

    Despite MIggy's demise, I assume they keep him around to mentor Contreras?

  • I believe Willson now has more CS than MIggy. The kid has an arm. Also, Russell is amazingly good on those plays at 2nd.

  • oh yeah...thanks joe/billy.

    poor outing, still got the win, go cubs.

  • Although it felt like it, Jake didn't lose to them -- he got the W. (Assuming you are referring to Monday's game)

  • Arrieta didn't lose to the Reds. He got the win -- he just didn't pitch like we expect him to.

  • almora's 1st HR!

  • it's not like this CIN team is lost-cause horrible, but aside from defense and power this is a truly horrible team.

    kinda crazy arrieta lost to them and yesterday's game had to go 15 innings for the cubs win.

  • It looked like Hamilton got screened by Duvall and that Duvall just barely deflected the ball off of his glove--redirecting it slightly without taking away much of its momentum.

    At least it didn't turn into a Schwarber/Fowler situation. Hamilton and Duvall are both pretty important youngish players for the Reds.

  • he walked off the field on his own. aside from a concussion watch and some attention to his leg/knee that buckled a bit under him, the biggest thing hurt was probably his pride after the ball knocked off his skull.

  • After last night, an inside-the-park HR seems kind of run-of-the-mill somehow.

    Sounds bad for Hamilton. Hope he's okay--listening on the radio.

  • SHOW ME THE MONEY:  Jose Albertos has signed with Mega-Agent Scott Boras.

    Albertos has already received his signing bonus and won't see any additional significant money until he reaches the big leagues,  so this is a long-term investment for the Boras Corporation.

  • I am glad Joe is managing this team and not Old and Blue!

  • Baez had Maddon's ass last night. I didn't hear the reason for taking Contreras out last night but whatever game management thingy it was, you don't take out your second hottest hitter. Or is he third? Anyway, you don't take him out. The guy can probably play anywhere in the field, anyway. Did anybody see that nice catch in left he made? I don't think he got a late start on that, just tracked it damn well for a catcher.

  • Per Fangraphs...

    Bryant took over NL lead in WAR after yesterday's effort. 3.9. Rizzo's at 2.8 and 8th in the league. Rizzo actually with better offensive numbers (161 wRC+ versus 146 for Bryant), but Bryant gets a good bump because of defense and position(s) played.

    Fowler with a 2.8 WAR as well (9th), Zobrist with a 2.7 (14th).

    M. Carpenter leads NL with 163 wRC+ just ahead of Rizzo who is 2nd.
