Re: The nosedive begins
I am not ready to throw in the towel by any means, but I thought this from Lance McAllisters blog was thought-provoking:
Circle the date: Friday July 9
The Reds gag on a 7-1 lead and lose. Francisco Cordero's blows his 6th save.
Arthur Rhodes looks human and 40 year old Scott Rolen misses the game with a bad back. Reds miss out on Cliff Lee.
Ramon Hernandez goes to the DL. Cardinals beat Houston 8-0. Reds go from the possibility of a four game lead Thursday night to a two game lead after Friday night. Road trip that was once 5-2 is now 5-4. Roy Halladay goes Saturday. Reds hit the break throwing three straight rookies.
