Here's a side story. My brother and his wife are vacationing in Las Vegas for their wedding anniversary this week. Today I get a text while in class and he informed me that he met, talked to and snapped a picture with a very famous former Red while at the casino.

Who, might you ask? Peter Edward Rose. Why is he ALWAYS around gambling establishments? Not doing a whole lot to help his image. Of course I was still jealous of my brother meeting him.

He gets paid to make appearances there.

I know it might not be good for the image, but it's a way to make a decent living. I can't necessarily blame him.

Back to back 6IP, 2ER starts. It'd be novel if the offense showed up this month. Yes, the Reds O has been stellar overall, but quite mediocre in Sept. They are middle-of-the-pack this month.

How about picking up your SP and score some runs for the kid!?

If I'm not mistaken, aren't his numbers much worse as a starter than when he comes in as a repacement?

He is brutal when he starts. He had a lot of success as a PH earlier in the year.

With Edmonds as a 1B, I can see it making sense with Janish as the 2B, 3B and SS backup.

But I can't see him getting a start in the playoffs.

I'm sorry. But we simply NEED Cordero for the playoffs IMO. We've GOT to get him back on track...that means pitching him fairly regularly. He had a really solid stretch here in the second half...and then a week of crud. Time to get him (and Phillips) back on track.

Probably because he was going to PH with Jay in the ninth anyway and he figured he might as well get another inning of defense out of him while he was at it.

I have watched or listened to 90% of the games this year. The script has not diverged much. Close game, offense sputters, looks like they'll have trouble scratching out another run, I'm whining about the lack of offense....then BOOM, big inning, hold them for a couple of innings, "and this one belongs to the Reds." Lather, rinse, repeat.

Back for more tomorrow.

More often than not the offense hasn't sputtered. Remember this is baseball, not the NBA. Hitting major league pitching isn't easy but relatively speaking, us Reds fans have been treated to a lot of offense

What a magical season. After ten years of watching this club mismanaged and all the false promises from Lindner and Allen, the blunders of Krivsky, and the bad years under the Castillini ownership, in comes Walt Jocketty who created a ball club that could and has won. Magnificent.

We may not go far in the post-season, but we'll be there. And I'm not betting against them. Even if the Cardinals have the Bucs, Cubs and Rockies and a home game advantage, we just have to win 6 of the next 11 (thanks oneupper) and I think we'll do it.
