Tonight's lineup vs Hudson


Ramp

Recommended Posts

Amezaga was good in CF last time he played there, but Reggie's been pretty hot lately. on ESPN bottom line, i believe, the said he has 5 hits in his last 14 ABs. thats like a .350 BA. not sure why they took him out

 

I would guess three things-

 

1. Amezega's triple last night and speed at the bottom of the lineup with Ramirez and Uggla following Willis.

 

2. It was the centerfielder's job to make sure collisions like last night don't happen and he didn't do his job.

 

3. Girardi may have felt Abercrombie would be over-matched against Hudson and/or he wanted to AA some playing time.

that was clearly Hammer's fault last night.... Reggie was yelling

 

that being said, hopefully it's just because Joe wanted to get AA some pt

 

I guess the writing may be on the wall for Eric Reed

I wish that were the case. But, you'd think he'd be sent down to the minors if that was true. I see no reason to keep a "pinch runner" on the roster, when we could certainly use another utility player/extra bat.

 

I do not think Eric Reed should be on a MLB roster. That being said, Girardi's use of him while he is on the squad is a joke, and is probably the biggest waste of a roster spot in Marlins' history. If you have him up here, use him...and prove me wrong. We could get better use of a roster spot from a FOURTH catcher (counting Willy as the 3rd).

Those who have posted on this before me are correct. There is no way that Reggie is at fault there. It's the centerfielder's job to get to anything he can get to. It's the other outfielders' jobs to get out of the way when the centerfielder calls for it. Once Reggie calls for it, Hammer should be out of the picture.

I'm not suggesting Reggie was wrong to try and call off Hammer, but it's like not stopping when someone runs a red light and an accident that could have been avoided happens. Sometimes getting out of the way when you realize the other guy doesn't hear you or doesn't know where you are is the right thing to do.

 

That said, since most of you see it a different way I'll go with the majority.

Having played outfield for quite some time, I'll let you know that when you call for a ball that is yours you go hard for it. When going full speed after a ball, you don't see the other player running in your direction. So, to better your analogy, I propose this: It's like going at a green when you see no one coming, then all of the sudden someone flies up over a hill from the right and clobbers you without your seeing them. Unfortunately, you can't use insurance to get outs back :D

Reg has played 16 games in a row the announcers said and it doesn't hurt to give him a rest against a pitcher that kills righties. Definitely means Reed is a goner cause management doesn't seem to want to give him starts...meaning he'll be the one to go in a week. Amezega shows us that he's still green at taking proper routes.

 

Willis looks SICK so far. He's throwing with 3-4 more mph than I'm used to seeing.

Unfortunately, MPH and movement/control are indirectly proportional for Dontrelle.
