    He does take a long time - the kind of less-demonstrative call doesn't bother me so much. The zone seems to be shifting around and has been all game - at least he's called it oddly against both teams.

    See? That was a horrible breaking ball....and he looked silly swinging at it because he was revved up for the FB.

    *sigh* And then a single on the fastball.

    More off speed stuff. Still rely on the fastball, that's fine....but mix it up some! Pleeeeeease!
    Chapman to the rotation!!!! Do it already!!!!

    I've seen Sabathia pitch in person, that guy is MASSIVE, and easily over 300. I just don't buy the argument that big guys like that don't work hard. C.C. and Prince are two of the best at what they do, and Broxton has carved out a pretty nice career for himself while being huge as well.

    He's already matched his 2012 total. Does this mean I'm going to go the last 4 and a half months of the season saying "he's due for one" like I did last year?

    Since there are no teams on the moon, I guess South Korea's far enough from Cincinnati to satisfy me.

    And a walk means the tying run is at the plate.

    Don't have a good feeling here.
    "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."

    Okay, another K in three, and now the Cubs are down to the last out.
