Brandon Phillips hits a 19 run HR. Reds down 4993-19.

alright. I made that all up.

I don't even know who's up.

Since no one really reads these things, I might work on some fiction storytelling.

Welcome to last place, boys.

I wasn't expecting a World Series this season, but I sure didn't expect to be in last place before the end of August. How in the world did the Pirates become better than the Reds even though they traded almost every good player they had??

Those bears aren't very punctual. The time to devour his lineup card was when a certain CF was not disabled :thumbdown

Barring a huge comeback Cincy would switch places with the Bucs and have the 5th spot in the draft after tonight. If San Diego wins their game then the Reds will be 4th. At this rate they could bump Baltimore for 3rd within the week.

At this point they'll need to blow stuff up or set things on fire to convince me to take the family to GABP on the next homestand. I don't mean the team either-it's already rubble. I mean physically blow stuff up or set things on fire between innings.

I can't wait to see how the Reds justify not firing Baker and the entire coaching staff in the offseason. Will be pure comedy gold.
