Phillies was even more egregious, bringing in that huge gas can Vazquez, even worse they bring him back out for a 2nd inning after getting a good one! Why in gods name you wouldn’t have just been thrilled he got you 3 outs is beyond me??!??!? Of course in his 2nd inning of work he walks 4 straight before getting yanked. That makes me sick, I rather a guy just throw a bp fastball down the middle and force them to hit it, anything better than walking guys home! They finally yank him out of game but of course all the inherited runners come across to blow the game open.
Blew another chance in the 8th. Punk ass ump didn’t help, called strike 3 on questionable pitch to Miller, had it been called properly it woulda been bases juiced 1 out. 5 of muts runs curtesy of walks tonight. That a good way to lose a game, bringing in Vazquez in a 1 run game and leaving him out there till the inevitable trouble comes!
Reds usually bury their season in the 1st month. They get rid of bunch high priced guys and they come out the gates smoking! Didnt make any sense this offense was so bad last year, on paper the lineup looks really good!
I hate when shift gives up a hit! I know it takes more hits away than it allows but it really bums me out when a easy out turns into a base knock cause the short stop isn’t where he belongs! Lol. Baffles me more guys don’t hit away from the shift, but they don’t get paid to hit singles so they rather swing for fences and don’t care if they hit it right into the shift!
A guy like Matt carpenter that already got a massive contract (for him) and is on the super ugly downside of his career should be choking up and hitting away or even bunting away from the shift every time!! Guy should be grateful they willing to give him a free base hit but he refuses to take it!
dammit, rangers out to a early lead. I was a little scared to go against Gibson after getting absolutely blown up in his 1st start. I know he not real good but he isn’t the worst ever, his pride on the line here.
Man, crazy inning. Feel unlucky rangers got that 2nd run but at same time got lucky they didn’t score more as the final out was a rope. Not a good start. Was really hoping to have a nice easy one like the reds to cash this 2 teamer. Jays gonna have to battle back!
