Why do I feel like I'm on the Titanic?
I suppose this corroborates why Dusty prefers to give so many guys routine days off throughout the season, as frustrating as it may be. This is the kind of thing that happens toward the end of a season. But that's the thing, it's not just the Reds.
The Dodgers lost Billingsley and might still be without Kemp while Kershaw is now a little banged up.
The Yankees have sidelined Tex.
The Cardinals lost Furcal, lost Berkman, Beltran has been worthless in two months and now have injuries to Freese and Carpenter.
The list goes on and on, but what the Reds are going through is not uncommon in September.
