    Wow, that's only Joey's SECOND double of the YEAR!?!
    Really is hard to believe after 25 games or so, on pace for 6 for the year.

    And now it's 6 to 1.

    Single up the middle by Werth. Was Leake worse than this? Really?

    Harper only 20. Pretty amazing.

    I don't get this either.

    I thought the Reds would have a tough April given their schedule, but following them right now is painful.

    Commentator Said Harper Was Up There To Do Damage. Not Looking To Get To First Base on A Walk. That's Bound To Excite Some Folks.

    Well, this sucks.

"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."

    I agree. But considering how many guys have struggled at the dish, the fact that we're still above .500 is a testament to just how awesome the pitching has been. That bodes VERY well for the remainder of the year IMO.

    Hoover warming. If you're going to put in Simon this early, he HAS to go more than 1, right?

    Re: 4/27/13 Reds v. Nationals

    Paul K's swinging. 1 down.
    Hannahan IF single to 2nd. Poor throw.
    Mesoraco pops out to 2nd. 2 down.
    Simon hitting for himself....good idea. Team leading 1.000 batting average. :O)

    Or not. Simon grounds out to 3rd. 6-1 it stays.

    Not that it's having a big effect on the score so far, but Rob Drake has to be one of the worst umps at calling balls and strikes ever. We're talking Eric Gregg bad.

    I gotta believe this is just a rough stretch, this team has too much talent to be flailing like this.

    You really should move that magnet to a Cubs' fans desk.
