    Corky and Lutz? Interesting game for sure. We'll see if that's interesting-good or interesting-bad.

    Corky I get, day game after night game. Lutz I'm not so sure about.
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    I don't get the Cork at all. It's not like Mes is upper 30s...the guy's a young stud. You gotta put your best team on the field. Now if Dusty's arguing that Cork's a better catcher...we'll that would be a head-scratcher but, ok.

    I don't buy the day game after night game theory. You don't see Molina sitting.

    Didn't say I agreed with it, just that I see why.

    But now Mes gets 2 days off in a row which is reinvigorating. I've got no problem with Mes off today.

    Phillips pops out in foul ground.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Some of the Reds' injury replacements baffle me.

    I respect Corky but at this stage wonder if they don't have a better replacement catcher. Really was shocked when he was called up.

    Also didn't understand calling up Lutz. He wasn't doing that well at AA. He's not even a natural LFer. I would have brought up a AAA hitter (probably Soto) and lived with four outfielders, Frazier in an emergency.

    I agree, Corky has gotten way too much playing time.
    I can see giving Corky some starts.. but it seems like this is his 5th start now?
    Maybe I'm counting wrong, but it doesn't seem as if Mez needs that much rest, considering Mez got tons of rest when Hannigan was healthy.

    I can actually see letting Lutz get a start.. Why not? It's not as if we have any great options in LF.. You have the guy up here, might as well take a look at him, even though he's probably going to be overmatched by Lynn. (Doubt any of the other LF would do much better)
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Would a third straight 2-1 ballgame surprise anyone? 15-13 in April is not bad considering the injuries, schedule, etc. Hoping the Reds make Lynn cry 'May Day" this afternoon.

    Freese is the coldest Card, so won't start.

    "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."
