  1. While the Reds lineup may not have been as focused as they normally would have been given the lack of stakes, the starting lineup looked pretty close to what I would expect to see in the playoffs.

  2. The Reds’ starting line-up was the best they could field. They pulled a bunch of starters early but by then the Cards’ bullpen had taken over anyway. Miller’s performance was tremendous. I can’t quite figure out how he does it. His fastball velocity and movement aren’t very special yet no one can square them up.

  3. “he and the Cardinal defense allowed just a single hit”

    Thank you, Carson Cistulli, for fulfilling my dream. Finally, an actual live sportswriter has given the other 8 players on the team the credit they deserved for a 1-hit performance.
    I guess all the other writers still think there was only 1 guy, the pitcher, on the field when the opponent was at bat.

  4. I didn’t see last night and they only showed one fastball, but his fastball movement was great in the minors. He had above average velocity but it was heavy and had down and in to righties. Perhaps his fastest fastball was overthrown a bit and his other fastballs had better movement?

  6. “Slurve” is a good word, but I still prefer the “slutter.”
