2010 Gameday

NLDS Gameday: Reds at Phillies, Game 1

Cincinnati Reds at Philadelphia Phillies
Atlanta Braves

Time: 5:07 p.m., Citizens Bank Park
Weather:
Partly Cloudy, 60
TV: TBS
Follow Phillies Nation on Twitter

Some huge breaking news at about 1 p.m. was that Placido Polanco is NOT in today’s Game 1 lineup. He’s been scratched with back spasms, Wilson Valdez will take his place. This is a pretty significant blow heading into what everyone believed was a very winnable series. The question now becomes, how much harder will this be for the Phillies without arguably their best contact hitter in Polly.

Polanco hasn’t seen Reds starter Edinson Volquez all that much (1-for-2 lifetime), but he is truly an important component of a lineup that has struggled with consistency all season. Let’s hope with the off day tomorrow that Polly can make a return for Game 2.

Let’s also try to get past the bad news and focus on the good: Roy Halladay pitches today. He lost his last start against the Reds on June 30. He was touched up for 13 hits over eight innings. This was also during June when Halladay struggle with a couple of rough outings. He met with the Reds again in July and shut them down over nine innings by allowing no runs. However, he left with a no-decision because Travis Wood was in the midst of a perfect game. The Phillies came away with a 1-0 win in 10 innings, and Doc narrowly missed another complete game shutout.

Which Halladay will the Reds see today? If the end of the regular season is a precursor to today, they’ll get a charged-up ace looking to make a name for himself on the biggest stage in baseball.

Edinson Volquez has two career starts against the Phillies, both coming in 2008. He allowed only seven hits and one earned run over 12 1/3 innings, going 2-0. The 27 year-old is coming in having had three good outings to finish September. However, late in July, he struggled so much that he was sent down to Triple-A to figure some things out. He’s done that, and then some.

Against lefties, Volquez is having his way. Left-handers are batting just .229 against him, 44 points lower than righties. That obviously hinders Chase Utley, Ryan Howard, and Raul Ibanez a bit. But still, this is Volquez’s first taste of postseason baseball, can he rise to the challenge of the two-time NL champs?

On the flip side, Roy Halladay is also making his first career playoff appearance, but the feeling is that he’s more than ready.

It’s the start of another round of October baseball for the Phillies. Can they make it three striaght trips to the World Series? Tonight, the first chapter of the story will be written.

Today’s Lineup: Rollins SS, Victorino CF, Utley 2B, Howard 1B, Werth RF, Ibanez LF, Ruiz C, Valdez 3B, Halladay P

    Ill be out watching the game so i wont be on the thread during the game.

    GO phillies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Too bad about Polly but I think its good that its a sore back and not the elbow.

  2. Manny

    October 6, 2010 at 3:01 pm

    FFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

    No Polanco! Now that’s a big blow… especially when you realize the bottom of your lineup has Valdez and Roy… almost back to back outs.

  3. Kate

    October 6, 2010 at 3:03 pm

    Well, it wouldn’t be the 2010 postseason without an unexpected starting line-up change. I’m telling people right now, don’t panic. This is still a very familiar line-up. The fans are familiar with this line-up and, most importantly, the players are familiar with this line-up.

    Valdez will be fine. He’d probably feel stranger warming the bench and coming in for relief later on at this point. Exxon’s proven he can be trusted. Hopefully, Polanco can start game 2.

    The most unfortunate part of all this is that it puts the Dobber one man closer to a bat in his hands.

    Polly out is a huge blow I hope they can overome that.

    We are toast now.

  7. pheeling it

    October 6, 2010 at 3:09 pm

    Rangers looking great, Franceour or whatever he names is is a first pitch swinger, took advantage earlier and their smashing the ball

    Rangers vs. Twins

    Braves in 5, we were so smart to lose one to the Braves, I just wished Padres won and knocked out Giants.

    Phillies vs. Braves

    I think it could be us and the Rangers at this point. I’d love to beat Cliff Lee in the World Series.

    Polanco is out, this means Jimmy must be healthy. I’m glad to hear it’s not his elbow? But get well soon

  8. pheeling it

    October 6, 2010 at 3:10 pm

    Let’s go PHILLIES let’s go! Been waiting all year.

    The third episode begins.

  9. JAY-AKA-PHILLYBOY

    October 6, 2010 at 3:12 pm

    Manuel also said that in Phillies” original lineup Rollins wasn’t leading off. But Polanco injury forced him to change.

  10. JAY-AKA-PHILLYBOY

    October 6, 2010 at 3:13 pm

    Amaro said Polanco has improved after getting treatment today. Said Polly first felt back problems getting out of his car Monday.

  11. JAY-AKA-PHILLYBOY

    October 6, 2010 at 3:17 pm

    Wilson Valdez is ready. Dyed his goatee red for playoffs.

  12. bfo_33

    October 6, 2010 at 3:18 pm

    I think it means Jimmy can bend over, Polanco can’t. PP has been playing most of the season with a fractured elbow, bone chips. He’s as tough as it gets, for him to come out must mean serious pain. I wouldn’t be surprised if he misses Friday also.

    Jimmy at lead-off means he’s healthy. Charlie takes his share of abuse (nationally and locally, even on this site), but I fully believe Rollins would not be at lead off if he couldn’t go full out. Even Dobb’s Mom doesn’t want to see him starting.

    Replace Feliz with Valdez, and this is the same line-up that did it in 2008, with better pitching.

  13. Bart Shart

    October 6, 2010 at 3:21 pm

    Get Well Soon, Polly !!!!

  14. Kate

    October 6, 2010 at 3:25 pm

    So THAT’S why the baseball gods gave Valdez so much playing time this year. So as to not give the fans a heart attack when he’s in the starting line-up for Game 1.

    GAME ON.

  15. JAY-AKA-PHILLYBOY

    October 6, 2010 at 3:27 pm

    Here’s an update on Placido Polanco’s back injury: http://bit.ly/b5yyue

  16. Bruce

    October 6, 2010 at 3:27 pm

    Rollins was not originally scheduled to lead off because Manuel thought he was not yet at full speed to steal bases. With Polanco’s injury, I guess he had no choice but to use Rollins at the top of the lineup.

  17. Manny

    October 6, 2010 at 3:28 pm

    Just when I thought Charlie was going to make the right call… he’s forced to switch things up.

    “Originally, Shane Victorino was going to lead off, with Polanco hitting second and Jimmy Rollins batting seventh. Instead, Manuel moved Rollins into the leadoff hole, hit Victorino second and inserted Wilson Valdez at third base, batting eighth.”

    J-roll batting seventh, Shane leadoff was the way to go. Get better soon Polanco!

  18. jt

    October 6, 2010 at 3:36 pm

    yeah with the exception of feliz this is the same lineup that went to world series last year.

  19. Andrew from waldorf

    October 6, 2010 at 3:48 pm

    Hate having Polanco out. But have to say I am glad Valdez is in.I have complete faith in him in every way and he deserves some post season starts. He earned them.

    See you guys after the big win

    GO PHILLIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  26. Groty

    October 6, 2010 at 4:31 pm

    Even with the best record in baseball, we don’t get the primetime slot. Naturally that goes to the Yankees. Heading out of work in 15 to hit the nearest bar.

  27. Desibrave

    October 6, 2010 at 4:32 pm

    Go DOC !! He deserves the day.. All these years he scared the hell out of Yankees and Boston but come October he was releagated to his couch.

    October 6, 2010 at 5:33 pm

    Is it just me or should Valdez get consideration for a gold glove?

  44. fred

    October 6, 2010 at 5:35 pm

    Halladays dealing. And yes, Valdez has an absoloute cannon !

  45. Tracey

    October 6, 2010 at 5:40 pm

    Phils are really making Volquez work. He’s already over 25 pitches with only 4 outs.

  62. Tracey

    October 6, 2010 at 5:52 pm

    Oh man… good night, Volquez!

  63. Tracey

    October 6, 2010 at 5:53 pm

    On the radio they are pointing out that Victorino has hit a grand slam in the playoffs before.

  64. Tracey

    October 6, 2010 at 5:54 pm

    Of course, you can’t hit a grand slam if the pitcher walks you…

  65. Tracey

    October 6, 2010 at 5:56 pm

    55 pitches.

  66. Tracey

    October 6, 2010 at 5:57 pm

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAH

  67. Tracey

    October 6, 2010 at 5:57 pm

    So that’s Roy Halladay’s first ever post-season run.

    October 6, 2010 at 6:01 pm

    at the game and the place is going crazy. OH BABBBY. This will be a no sweat series. This is not the Pirates, Astros, or that other bad team in there division. THE DOC IS IN THE HOUSE.

  71. Greg

    October 6, 2010 at 6:08 pm

    Tracey, clearly you weren’t a fan in 2008…Vic hit a BOMB Grand slam down the LF line against CC Sabathia. Right after Brett Myers walked after, I think, 10 pitches.

  72. Tracey

    October 6, 2010 at 6:08 pm

    WOO HOO!!! 9 up, 9 down!

  73. Kate

  74. jeff

    Let Doc be Doc. SHUT DOWN THE REDS.

  75. Kate

    October 6, 2010 at 6:14 pm

    Hmmm… maybe it wasn’t in our best interest to send Volquez to the showers so early.

  76. Tracey

    October 6, 2010 at 6:15 pm

    Greg, I have been a season ticket holder since 2000. As a matter of fact, I was at that game.

    I’m glad Franzke isn’t buying into this stupid jinx thing, so juvenile

  89. joe444

    October 6, 2010 at 6:27 pm

    Isn’t it Tom McCarthy right now?

  90. Tracey

    October 6, 2010 at 6:29 pm

    No, really Publius, we all know you’re a tool. You don’t have to prove it.

  91. Publius

    October 6, 2010 at 6:29 pm

    Indeed, being a grown person and not believing in superstitions render me a tool. Well done.

  92. ray

    October 6, 2010 at 6:33 pm

    tracey why give it the time of day? A grown person doesn’t act this way

  93. ray

    October 6, 2010 at 6:33 pm

    pubic claiming it’s the grown person i mean

  94. Mostone

    October 6, 2010 at 6:33 pm

    I don’t believe in superstitions, but plenty of ballplayers do. No matter – Roy will never know that Franzke uttered the “p” word.

  95. NJ Phils Fan

    October 6, 2010 at 6:35 pm

    Why are Mccarthy and Wheels on the radio instead of Franzke and LA. I mean Jim Jackson is one thing but…

  96. Tracey

    October 6, 2010 at 6:39 pm

    rats

  97. Publius

    October 6, 2010 at 6:39 pm

    That was clearly a result of Franzke talking about the perfecto

  98. Tracey

    October 6, 2010 at 6:41 pm

    @NJ: Oops, is that McCarthy and Wheels? I’m mostly listening to my HK play-by-play app and didn’t notice.

  99. Tracey

    October 6, 2010 at 6:42 pm

    I guess they’re on radio because they’re not on TV.

  100. jeff

    October 6, 2010 at 6:43 pm

    Not in your best interest to send there pitcher to the showers. DUH…A girl does not belong watching sports.

  101. Kate

    October 6, 2010 at 6:44 pm

    The TBS guys also said PG while talking to Dubes about Halladay’s season.

    And Rolen was walked. The next AB was merely the universe righting itself.

    And the TBS guys just invoked the NH.

  102. NJ Phils Fan

    October 6, 2010 at 6:44 pm

    @ Tracey HK play-by-play app?

  103. Publius

    October 6, 2010 at 6:44 pm

    And jeff obviously does not belong trying to type coherent english!

  104. Kate

    October 6, 2010 at 6:45 pm

    I meant, Jeff (what’s with all the tools showing up tonight?), that it’s in our interest to light him up another inning or two. We haven’t scored since he went out and the Reds are a late-game rally team.

  105. Tracey

    October 6, 2010 at 6:46 pm

    @NJ: Yeah, I wrote an AJAX app that uses MLB gameday data to build a scorecard and plays old Harry Kalas clips for each play.

  106. Tracey

    October 6, 2010 at 6:47 pm

    HK says, “and the pitch is a towering fly ball to center field … drifts in a couple of steps and makes the catch… and that’s two down.”

  107. Tracey

    October 6, 2010 at 6:48 pm

    HK: “And the pitch is over for a called strike. Nothing and one the count. … inside, ball and a strike…”

  108. Tracey

    October 6, 2010 at 6:48 pm

    When there is a day game, the mail room guys freak out to come into my office and hear Harry Kalas calling the game.

  109. NJ Phils Fan

    October 6, 2010 at 6:48 pm

    @ Tracey Seriously?

  110. Tracey

    October 6, 2010 at 6:50 pm

    Seriously.

  111. Tracey

    October 6, 2010 at 6:51 pm

    There are a few calls I don’t have, and there are a few plays I’m not handling properly, but mostly it works well.

  112. Tracey

    October 6, 2010 at 6:52 pm

    The data comes from here:
    http://gd2.mlb.com/components/game/mlb/year_2010/month_10/day_06/gid_2010_10_06_cinmlb_phimlb_1/

    eventLog.xml gives the plays, and gameday_Syn.xml gives the pitches.

  113. Mostone

    October 6, 2010 at 6:52 pm

    @Tracey. That is the most seriously crazy and awesome thing I have heard in a while.

  114. Morris Buttermaker

    October 6, 2010 at 6:53 pm

    We got a game with the Reds tonight. And that only means one thing. Bad News for the Reds!

  115. NJ Phils Fan

    October 6, 2010 at 6:53 pm

    Yes it is. You should copyright it and make a million bucks selling it to iTunes.

  116. Publius

    October 6, 2010 at 6:56 pm

    Ok let me come out of troll mode and say Tracey that is legitimately cool.

  117. Tracey

    October 6, 2010 at 6:57 pm

    Only one baserunner allowed so far… I guess that answers the question of how Halladay will handle the post-season pressure! 😀

  118. Tracey

    October 6, 2010 at 6:57 pm

    🙂 Thanks, Publius!

    Quote from Doc’s press conference

    Question “Roy , you have some pretty dedicated teamates… Madson said out in the bullpen he didn’t go to the bathroom for 4,5 innings”.

    Doc’ (smiling!) “Yeah, he’s a piece of work, huh? I’m suprised he didn’t do anything else”

    LoL!

    Thats funny NJ-

    He’s a witty guy-
    I remember what he said when he was asked after his perfect game which was at night-

    Roy, at what point did your teammates and coaches stop talking to you?

    “around 2 oclock this afternoon”

    Simply awesome. Made a great hitting team look silly.

    Arroyo on Friday. Righties hit him for a .285 clip, lefties .185. Perfect for this club!

    I am not a Phillies fan, but am a baseball fan. What Roy Halladay did was great for baseball (period.). He started off the playoffs on the right foot. This is the most I have been into the playoffs in a long time.

    Also, the play by Ruiz on the last out was incredible. I hope he gets some credit for making a difficult play. He is an unsung hero on a stacked team. Gotta love players like him.

    Good luck with the rest of the playoffs…

    We also shouldn’t forget “Big game Shane”

    And an amazing play Chooch made from his knees.

    I am so pumped from that game!

    So Historic…. maybe the greatest game I have seen since I have been watching baseball in 1978!

    My wife and I sat and watched and sat and discussed what we witnessed for like an hour!

    WOW!

    Halladay is an android. There. I said it. It’s like I said his last start – it’s like watching Mr. Data pitch.

    Roy Halladay is the first pitcher in major league post-season history to have more hits in a game than he allowed.

    Recording the replay on MLB Network right now. I’m old enough to have watched the last no hitter against the Reds also. Also by a Phillies pitcher, Rick Wise. He hit 2 home runs that day also.
