  • I'll take 3 runs from my starters every day of the week. The offense so far this year has been just pathetic. Homer seemed to be off a little tonight but he worked out of some pretty bad spots and thats good to see. He didn't let the pressure get to him.

    • Homer reminds me of Nolan Ryan.
      He will be a strike out machine and wont go deep into games often.

      Huge potential there for a kid.

      • Homer only went 5 since he threw 106 pitches gave up 7 hits, he did have 5 Ks but still far from a good start.

          A bunch of those hits shouldnt have been hits. O-Cab makes a good throw, He makes a better jump on another.

          They got some luck tonight.

          • Hey, they can give up 20 hits for all I care if they're giving up 3 runs or less. I mean, they haven't been amazing but it has kept the team in the game despite having an awful offense. I will take the production so far from the top 4 starters.

            Homer is really going to have to get a handle on his control to be able to go deep in games, I'm still pretty pleased with his start given the circumstances.

            Also definite hats off to Micah Owings.

            Really excited for Leakes start tomorrow.

            • I should be there tomorrow.

              Harang is still an Ace pitcher if he can ever learn to not give up the long ball.

                  • Dick is a good/decent player both at the plate and on D, no way Sico should be playing LF over Dick/Gomes this year.

                    • You're kidding about Dickerson right?
                      He is a hack in the field. He takes terrible breaks, did you see his "throw" to home?

                      He is an athlete playing baseball. He is not a baseball player. He has terrible base awareness. Yeah he gets a lot of walks. Thats great. He has little to no power and he really only gets singles. (A fluke double today because Soriano is clueless in LF)

                      Francisco is a 22 year old rookie who was ROY and MVP in Winter Ball, driving in over 90 runs in all his MiLB experience.

                      I'd take my chances with him in LF than Dickerson. We need power in the lineup. Juan has oodles and he is gonna strike out a lot but he also is 22 and needs experience.

                      • Odds are Francisco might be headed back down to AAA. Honestly thats the best thing for him so he can get regular at bats and maybe spend some time in LF to learn to play the position. If you just throw him out there he will more then likely look worse the Soriano does. He is young and needs to learn to hit better before coming up. Incase some of you didn't notice he did strike out 4 times today and looked bad doing it. I just hope he isn't another Brandon Larson type prospect. A guy who can kill AAA pitching but just gets exposed in the bigs.

                        As for Dickerson he is a pretty darn good outfielder. He doesn't have a reall good arm but he can cover some ground and makes alot of good plays out there. Todays outfield lineup is by far the best defensive one the reds can throw out there. Your going to have to hit it just right to find a gap.

                        As a team the reds really need to start hitting. There are alot of guys who are really struggling to find a hit especially with runners in scoring position. Bruce is hitting the ball very good just cant find a hole in the defense right now. I just hope he doesn't get frustrated and go back to hitting like Adam Dunn.

                        • Juan is a pure hitter. He is not gonna take walks, he is not gonna hit for .333
                          He is gonna hit .270 with 30+ HR and a bunch of K's. Ryan Howard type hitter
                          He needs protection in the line up. That cracks me up about Dusty. He puts young hitters in front of strike out machines so there is no protection behind them. Why do the Cards #2 hitter almost always have such success? They put the young kid infront of the best hitter on the team.

                          Bruce always looked good hitting in front of Votto or Phillips. Put him at 5 and O-Cab 6.

                          As for Dickerson, he is in no way a good outfielder. He is fast. That is it. He has very little baseball awareness. Reds fans are often stricken by Ryan Freel Syndrome. One guy makes a few pretty plays and next day he is a superstar here. Dickerson is at best a 4th outfielder if Stubbs goes down (God Forbid). He can't play LF. He whines when he doesn't start in CF. Offensively, he provides a solid 7 or 8 hitter if he HAS to be in the game. For someone whose speed is so touted, he sucks at running the bases. The best defensive line up we could have in the outfield would be: Send Dickerson to AAA and bring Chris Heisey up. He is a better version of Dickerson. And Stubbs is a beast who should play every game unless he gets hurt.
