Post-Game 66 Thread: Reds Scare; Ely Chased

REDS 7, DODGERS 1

Just as Ely-mania was going to ascend to a new level, thanks to his solid first inning and a RBI single in the top of the second inning, the phenomenon hit a big speed bump. Bronson Arroyo outshone his rival starter by hitting a three-run home run in the bottom of the second, John Ely struggled through 4.2 IP (7 ER, 3 K, 3 BB, 3 HR), and some of the few Dodger regulars in the lineup were in the lineup only in name (Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier each went 0-for-4, which didn't complement Garret Anderson's 0-for-4, 5 LOB well). The Dodgers head off for Boston tied with the idle Padres for first place, and with the Giants a mere half-game behind.

Padilla is scheduled to face Wakefield on Saturday. Over-under of 20 runs?

Too bad we can't run Haeger out there.

I mean, uh, I'm glad we can't run Haeger out there.

I'll take 2 out of 3 on the road to a 1st place team most any day.

Except today.

Well things are getting interesting now, aren't they?

And, yeah, what DB said. The Reds are pretenders in the central.

Lousy Communists.

I have here in my hand a list of two
hundred and five that were known to the Commissioner of Baseball as being members of the Cincinnati Reds.

Mr. Customer said...

Don't make me get my pinko-sympathizer propaganda, Dusty.

Fred's Brim said...

I want two of three in Boston this weekend. I will even take a loss on Saturday if we can get the other two

Fred's Brim said...

Plus they are the Reds Ox. Gotta keep them commies down, man or bovine!

Mr. Customer said...

Fuck that, Give me a Lakers win tonight and a Dodgers sweep for maximum humiliation (and I even kinda like the sox)

Joseph McCarthy said...

The fate of the world rests with the clash between the ineptitude of Cincinnati and the Dodger spirit throughout other parts of the world.

Looks like Mr.C is going all in(shooting the works)for an L.A. quadruple threat.Count me in on wins all across the board. Fuck Boston!

MR. F said...

Mr. C has it right. Show no mercy!

Joseph McCarthy said...

Anyone who doesn't think the Lakers will win will be hauled in front of the House Un-American Activities Committee.
