    I;m afraid you may be right. This offense is just abysmal right now. Bottom of the order is beyond abysmal today.

    It's probably a good thing they have tomorrow off, that series in Chicago is not going to be easy based on the pitching and the way the Reds are hitting.
    This is the ol Left Hander rounding third and heading for home.

    Now a base hit probably ends it.

    I hate Matt Carpenter.
    "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."

    Uh oh. 1 in already, back to back hits now.
    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

    Neftali Soto has an .860 AAA OPS. He has a year at AAA under his belt. He is a bat. There are also a few other guys at AAA who would have sufficed.

    The Reds reflexively went for a guy who has played some LF. But they could have easily lived with four outfielders plus Frazier in an emergency. They should have gone for the best hitter.

    Soto also makes sense because the Reds have no righty power on the bench. Their current RHH are Izturis (switch), Robinson (switch) and the backup catcher.

    And even the Lutz decision could be justified if he merely pinch hit. Instead, we're seeing player development today against the Cards.

    *whew* Ground out to short to end the threat. 1-0 Cards after 4.

    Bruce and his overrated arm... When was his last assist?

    It would be out of character for the organization, but is there anyone worth taking a flier on who's a free agent?

    I forgot about Soto. Lutz was doing little at Pensacola. Quite a few K's. At this point in time, we desperately need a hitter.
