"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."
Dayton announcer just threw out these tidbits. Reds' pitchers have struck out 10 or more batters in five straight games. First time this has happened since 1900 per the broadcaster.
Choo has been hit 10 times. Last person to do that was Craig Biggio in 1997. Reds' season record is 24 by Jason LaRue.
Choo has been on in 14 of his last 18 plate appearances.

A watched plot never thickens.
I see that Maker is up to his ol' Sundeck tricks again. He is good for 1 or 2 of these a month...LOL!!!
To be fair to Maker....he's not even close to the only person who threw in the towel after the 2 run HR by the Cubs. He's just the easiest target. Probably unfairly. It's like the guy is walking around with a target on his back. Lots of people make comments like his and they don't get pounced on like he has been lately. JMO.

Right now, it just seems like piling on is all.
