Cubs at Reds (8/8 - 8/11)

Page 10 of Big Series, maybe the biggest of the year. If the Reds are going to truly be in it, this weekend is the time to make the move. The Reds come in 4 games... 174 comments | 3154 Views | Go to page 1 →

    Yes, that was horrible, batters don’t know what to swing at, by the process of elimination Hernandez might be the worst in MLB.

    Like I said....

    Ridiculous that a first place team can't win a series from a below .500 fourth place team in their division.

    Reds are making the right moves and getting the right young people in the right spots. Lots of reason for optimism in 2020.

    Cubs score one as Reds come to bat. Reds up 3-1.

    Dadgoneit!!! Horrible pitch selection to Baez, 4 sliders in a row, 3rd best pitch??? You know out of 4 Castillo is probably going to leave 1 over the middle and he did!!

    Castillo is showing some trouble these last two innings.

    Castillo is done. Here comes one of those David Bell double switches.

    Lorenzen gives up a single to get to Bryant. Reds trying to give it up.

    Bryant first pitch a three run homer. Lorenzen can't pitch against the Cubs and that is who Bell brings in. How can he keep making these mistakes. He has to know that.

    Lorenzen is the mentally weakest pitcher on the team. When things are going good, he's good. If there is any pressure at all, he falls a part.

    He should NEVER come in during the middle of an inning. Let him start an inning and he's decent.
