Rizzo has not been looking comfortable at the plate tonight. He still has a lot to learn. and then a baserunning mistake.

For fuck's sake, Moreland is such a fucking clown.

 

Starlin didn't "give himself up"; it wasn't a "productive out".  He hit a fly ball.  He was trying to get on base.  He didn't.  He got lucky that he hit it hard enough that Sappelt was able to move up.

Well, Rizzo, I imagine you will hear a thing or two about that.

Yay for discipline! Good God. What a bonehead play.

 

He may be slugging ok, but his head has been up his ass a times this season. That's got to stop.

That 5th inning by the Cubs is BY FAR more infuriating to me than anything that happened in last night's game.

Brandon Phillips was about 75 feet from home plate when he fielded that ball. And the "go on contact" order was on. That's so fucking stupid.

It would be nice to get one of these close calls at first!!  Seems like we are 0 for the season on those.

3rd base coach must have told Sappelt to go on contact.  Worse yet Sappelt had his head down and no way he could see he was D.O.A. ----Too bad.  Maybe he could have disobeyed orders.   Water under the bridge.  As for Rizzo.....maybe the same idea was in play from the 1st base coach.  I wish I hear an explanation as it's soooooo easy to put it all on the baserunners.

That's coming from Bell. It's a bang bang play. Either it works or it doesn't. Putting pressure on the D works. If it was the Cubs in the field man would have scored.

Reds are not afraid of trailing by one.  Cubs are afraid of having any lead.  Hope they can hang in there to make that one run lead come downlike a mountain crushing this Cincy team.........................
