Plus, it's just the "Cubs". It's always just somebody ...

This kid can pitch. Period. He dominates at every level and no walks tonight was very impressive. Only guy I was worried about in the line-up tonight was Hariston actually ... Ransom snuck up on me. Nationals on Sunday ... if he can pitch well in that one, then I think the baseball world will notice.

Investment looks good so far / but it's been a lot of fun too.

And now Tony keeps his undefeated record in tact. Carlos Marmol strikes again.

Cingrani will have a big chance to prove himself more on Sunday against the Nats. I've been real impressed with his first 2 outings though. Looked alot sharper tonight and better command walking 0 and strikingout 9.

Heh, the recap written by MLB.com ... gotta love it.

"In his second big league start for the Reds, Tony Cingrani fared well overall as he gave up two runs and five hits over seven innings. The left-hander did not walk a batter and struck out nine.

Cingrani made a couple of mistakes during the top of the second inning, which led to both of his earned runs. Alfonso Soriano began the inning with a single to left field. Cingrani didn't do a good job of holding Soriano, who easily stole second base with a great jump as Scott Hairston stood in the batter's box. Soriano swiped third base, too, and Hairston got him home with a sacrifice fly. The next batter, Cody Ransom, hit a first-pitch fastball for a home run to right-center field, which gave the Cubs a 2-0 lead. Heisey put the Reds on the scoreboard in the bottom of the third when he hit Villanueva's first pitch for a home run to left field. Villanueva retired 10 in a row after that.

In the first nine games of the 10-game homestand, Reds starters have given up only two runs or fewer. Eight of the nine have been quality starts, with Cingrani's five-inning outing in his 2013 debut on Thursday being the lone exception.


In the entire recap, Sheldon states the stat line, says Cingrani made mistakes and was the break in the quality start chain. Not a single positive thing to say at all (picked off a runner, fastball hit 95 in the 7th inning ... etc).

I still don't get it.

I was at the game last night so I can't comment on what Brantley or Marty was saying about his performance but I thought he looked better than his debut.

He wasn't in the greatest situation not having Ryan Hanigan behind the dish. Soriano never steals 1 base let alone 2 if the very underrated Hanigan is back there. That being said, as a lefty, Tony has to hold Soriano better. That is one run that was completely manufactured off the inexperience of the two involved (Miller).

Tony's fastball averaged out to 91 and change. He dips down to around 89 when pitching from the stretch. The good news was that he was more confident in throwing other pitches last night. I'd say his FB% was easily south of 90%.

Pretty good outing for the young lefty. Unfortunately Villanueva was better and silenced most of the Reds' bats.

Not to totally start a tangent, but curious to see what you guys think of Reds minor leaguer Robert Stephenson. He can hit 100, he doesn't walk people, yet his ERA is less than stellar and has never been amazing.

The fact was made fun of earlier in this post but relying too much on a over powering fastball works, at first. When hitters adjust and get good swings on a straight fastball, hard contact happens and your BABIP is like close to .500!!

Glad to see him doing so well- I knew he would. I wanted to go after Cingrani more but your ambition was obviously way past mine or my ability. I'm glad my Cingrani's went to you and you gave me a very good price!

A new low for the press of Tony Cingrani

(From ESPN) . . Johnson said 3B Ryan Zimmerman, on the DL with a left hamstring strain, will likely begin a rehab assignment Monday and rejoin the team Friday in Pittsburgh. . Cincinnati LHP Chris Cingrani (1-0, 2.25) opposes LHP Ross Detwiler (1-1, 1.38) in Sunday's finale.

Do his teammates call him CC? If not, they should.

Not one, two, or three stirkeouts in the 4th inning.

FOUR STRIKEOUTS. Span / Harper / Desmond / LaRoche. First time I've actually watched it. / Just need one more good inning from Tony / maybe 2.

He looks so intense on the mound. I love it.

Yea, one of the knocks on him while in the minors is that he wears his emotions on his sleeve / but it always makes him pitch better. Seems to have another gear with runners on base because has yet to give up a hit with RISP this year.

Marlins we're 0-8 / Cubs we're 0-4 and now the Nats are 0-3. That will catch up with him eventually but it's good to see that he doesn't buckle under pressure, and rises to it.

His intensity reminds me of some of the great throwback pitchers like Bob Gibson, Don Drysdale, and Nolan Ryan. They all used to pitch "angry".

I agree. Hopefully its how some of the new age players are going to be. Cingrani vs. Harper is awesome to watch since they both play so hard.
