    To be fair, the defense sucked and so did the pitching...so we got that going for us. :O)

    Some credit should go to Gio. He pitched an excellent game, albeit with quite a bit of help from the HP ump. One of the worst strike zones this year. Unbalanced from the first pitch. Changed from hitter to hitter, pitcher to pitcher and multiple times during at bats. Whether we were on the good side of the W or the bad side, I would've been pissed about the strike calling.
    Chapman to the rotation!!!! Do it already!!!!

    That was a lot less frustrating than losing 2-1 and stranding tons of runners.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    We're bad again.
    "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."

    So far it seems our starting pitching has been good 90% of the time and our bullpen has been good 80% of the time ... but our offense has been good only about 25% of the time. Throw out a few abnormal extremes -- like the 15-0 win against the Nats and the 9-run 9th at STL -- and this offense has been pretty bad.

    It was less stressful. I'll give'em that.

    I don't get this. If you are going to throw out the extremes, why not toss the 0 run extremes too? Oh, because it doesn't support your argument? I kid.

    Because I think the lower scoring games are more the norm for this team than the higher scoring games are. I think we've only been shut out twice, right? I'm more concerned with how we seem to struggle to get any offense going against the opposing teams' starting pitchers. It puts a lot of pressure on our starters.

    Okay then, dump the 0 run and 1 run games along with the high scoring games. Over the course of the season, things balance out. I don't expect Choo to hit like this all year, but by the same token, I don't expect Bruce to sit on 1 dinger all year either.

    As the season progresses, it gets warmer, the bats begin to take over the game more. I'm as concerned about this offense as I am about Joey Votto being near the league lead in strikeouts. It won't continue for long.

    And I'd think most all teams would struggle more against a teams starting pitchers...they're the best pitchers on a team generally.
