Aight......it's HERE!!!!!!!

Lets go Reds!!!!!

I do however think you put your team leader in RBI's in the lineup against Oswalt. However I understand not wanting that young of a bat in there vs One of if not The best Pitcher in the NL.

There's this vague sense of nausea seeing Aurilia in the clean-up spot.

I've come to grips with the fact that I'll never like Aurilia, no matter how well he does.... and you know, I'm okay with that.

The Derrek Lee-less Chicago Cubs seemed to have no problem with Milwaukee's David Bush, flogging him for ten hits and five earned runs in six innings of a 6-2 win at Wrigley today.

That makes the Cubs 4-1 in the five games since they DLed Lee. And Michael Barrett has missed the last couple of games also.

Are you saying I picked the wrong time to pick up Bush on my fantasy team? Oh well, at least my number one pick finally had a good outing for the Twins yesterday.

'course DLee was my second round pick. :cry:

Only my frat brother Morgan Ensberg's butterfingers prevents a double play on the Straw. Two on, two out.

Hatteberg drives one, but it's to straightaway center and is caught. End of inning.

Reds blow a chance to take an early lead after Lopez and Dunn walk. Aurilia swung at a ball and grounded into a FC. Hatteberg took a ball before just missing a HR and flying to CF.

0-0 after 1.

Should have walked again. Also the ump once again screwed him by calling a pitch 4 inches off the plate a strike. I wish every ump was like that one the Reds had Monday night in Washington.

It's amazing how quickly Claussen can lose his control.

When he's on he's good -- but he hasn't found consistancy this season, and it doesn't usually last more than a couple of innings.

Dunn just doesn't get good breaks; his body is built for first-base. Nice effort, though.
