    Somebody's really got to start telling Reds hitters that the games are over in the fourth inning.

    That's what happens when you play a catcher in the OF.

    "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."

    The rave scoreboard when caught by TV cameras is hilarious.

    I just think that when you're trying to give away an out, it's almost always going to result in that happening. At least with the pitcher hitting, there's at least a chance of successfully advancing the runner and having more than one chance to drive him in.
    I know it's not personal. But it is a debatable point at minimum. Calling the other view "stupid" just seems...I don't have a good word for it right now, but it doesn't help matters.

    Thing about Juan is that people always thought walks was his biggest problem. IMO his biggest problem is his wide split. He really kills righties. He cannot hit lefties at all.

    Braves are such a smart organization, they use these guys perfectly.

    Look the Reds were obviously mad at Francisco he came to camp in bad shape, they got a good reliever for him, the trade was sensible.

    But don't sell him too short. The Braves will make good use of his skills.

    Unbelievable play there by a catcher playing left field. I can't believe he kept it in front of him.
    Rounding third and heading for home...

    If it wasn't for BP's production, we'd be lucky to have won 10 games. Phillips with 28 rbi's now.
