Hampton is washed up. Come on bats, awaken from your slumber.

Willie has gone cold. Bernadina should be getting more starts.

Looked horrible in the first inning. Terrible swings at Hampton.

pitiful ass fielding job by Dukes. Will more than likely cost us at least 1-2 runs.

And Redding botches it with 2 outs and the bottom of the order up like he has done all damn year.

No excuse to get beaten by the #8 hitter with 2 outs and the pitcher on deck.

Hampton has been serving these up. Patience is paying off.

Redding is just as bad as Bergmann in my book. The only difference between the two is run support.

Redding is just as bad as Bergmann in my book. The only difference between the two is run support.

There are a couple of big differences. Redding recognizes that he will get hit, and will give up runs. But it as long as he is not fatigued or having an off-night control-wise, it doesn't stop him from going after guys. It is better to have guys beat you then to give away free passes. Redding isn't afraid to give up hits or runs (so he mostly minimizes the damage and keeps the game winnable for the offense). Bergmann, on the other hand, pitches out of fear of getting hit, and thus compounds his own problems with giving up too many walks and getting behind batters. The other thing is that Redding knows he is still one 9th of the batting order and helps himself with the bat. Bergmann is an inexcusable disgrace with the bat in his hand and makes the end of the lineup a complete joke that other teams can take to the bank to get out of an inning.

Defensive players also much prefer to pitch behind a guy like Redding.

Redding is just as bad, just in other ways.

He gets beat by the bottom of the order far, far too often. He also rolls over with 2 outs in an inning way too frequently. He'll get 2 quick outs and then roll over like a dog.

Redding is one of the least resilient and least poised pitchers I've ever seen. Once things start to go awry for him he never can limit the damage.

Good example right here. Gets the #8 guy out, lets the pitcher get an infield single and then walks the lead-off hitter that can't hit on 4 pitches. Now the big boys are up. This crap has happened all year.

My biggest problem is that he is not much good after he gets to the 5th inning.
