    Close play at 2nd. Force out as Desmond bobbles it but tags the bag before the runner. 3-3 after 3.

    60 pitches thru 3 --- got to love that --- not what I've come to expect from the Reds
    The older I get - the better I was

    and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)

    Nats are defiantly having trouble catching the ball

    I'm struggling to see all of the intriguing strategy involved in the bottom of the third inning. Basically, the Reds did nothing strategically in anticipation of Cueto batting and the Nats just simply walked Hanigan to get to Cueto. The only exciting thing about that was the bobble on Cueto's weak grounder which I'm pretty confident in saying, wasn't what Dusty was playing for strategy-wise.

    What would you have done differently? Don't mean this in a debate way just honestly curious what you would have done.

    Enjoyable series, two good teams, however it comes out.

    But I'm a little distressed that both Leake and Cueto allowed big homers to the eighth place hitting catcher.

    Yesterday, as Dusty himself said, the pitcher was on deck with two outs and nobody warming up.

    Today, it looked like a pitch that got too much of the plate.

    As much as I hate giving up walks, I think these pitchers need to be a little less aggressive in coming over the plate to these eighth place hitters.

    Kelch now says that the opposition eighth hitters have hit the Reds well througout the short season so far. Shouldn't happen this much.

    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Choo has a crazy accurate arm.
