Set up man audition for Smith?

We have a 7 run lead, so someone has to pitch. Smith is the last guy on the totem pole. That's why he is in.

I worry that Rhodes has been so good because he's been used narrowly, and that could get srewed up.

No. Just absolutely no.

Most of us doubted he could stay healthy enough, and that his sample size of health was too small.

And he was never a good enough defender when healthy, or good enough against RH's to win a job outright. That's the simple truth. And going 1-3 with a HR doesn't erase the month+ of suck he's displayed since the end of May.

end of rant.

TRF...you are one one side of the negotiating table March 2010. Mr. Gomes is on the other. You have Nix,Dicker,Heis on your roster. Jonny Gomes is sitting across the table and says if you slide a check over for 1 million dollars I'll join the club.

What do you do?

Though it's only one scene, and he has only one line, I really like Danny Trejo's line when he says, "Man! That dude cleans up good!"

Trejo is going to star in Robert Rodriguez's new movie, "Machete".

Are the replica helmets the contoured kind or the old bowl-shaped kind?

Ohhh...I want one. I just saw some guy in the stands with a "vottomatic" t-shirt. I didn't know that had caught on that well up in Cincy. Nice.

taking odds on if and when Cordero is forced to come into the game.

Hanigan just calls a great game. He's totally in control out there and really on top of the pitchers. I'd have no problem at all with him being the full time starter.

Pure joy on Cueto's face as he delivered the shaving cream pie to Volquez. Love to see the team so happy.

MLB Network is simply put a beautiful thing. Just shown live...an inside the park HR from Gwynn Jr. I love it.

Just saw on MLB Network, Pujols off the bag as he was stretching for a throw and the umpire called it an out.

Just got back from the game. Volquez was just fantastic tonight. Adding him to the rotation is huge for the 2nd half. Most teams are going to have to pull off a major trade to try to add a top starter and the Reds just added a top of the line starter for the rest of the year.

The curse of my red Joey shirt is OVER!! :D I had it on during the day and didn't end up getting home in time to change it (if needed, and yes, I totally would have done that if they were losing :p: ) and the guys ended up winning the game anyway. FINALLY!! This shirt curse was driving me crazy because the Reds seriously lost every time I wore it and didn't matter whether I was at the game or just watching at home. They lost every time I wore it this season! I am so happy that the curse is broken and I hope it stays that way! *whew* :D

Carry on with being happy about all the other things that happened tonight which are also very cool! Volquez was great, love the offense (which better be there when I'm at the game tomorrow, LOL), good defense again, and the bullpen shut the door completely. Nice win for the guys! :D

Just wanted to say hello to all the Stubbs and Gomes haters tonight! Enjoy the game RZ!

One of the chief advantages of being a positive sort who tends to find the best in everyone is that I can say "IN YOUR FACE" every time anyone does something good.

When Stubbs came up the first time, my brother says, "Here comes lookinglookingswinging" bam home run.
IN YOUR FACE JERK.

Gomes comes up, man he's been rough since May. BAM home run.
IN YOUR FACE JERK.

I didn't see a close up of that to see if he was pulled off, but that was a heck of a play either way. I know we mostly all hate the cards, but you've got to give props when they're deserved IMO.

Except his foot was off the bag. So you are giving him props for what should have been a non-out.

No, I was giving props for the fine play at third (or was it short, I forget) and for the excellent stretch. Props for the effort. If he was off...bad call. But still one heck of an effort.
