Another blown late lead. Three straight Sundays and now this game. This trend isn't good. If this trend continues you can forget about catching the Cardinals or even making the wild card game. I know its only June but I do think too many blown late leads by a bullpen can have a very devastating effect on a team as a whole. I hope this bullpen can find the magic potient to get through these tight games or its going to be a frustrating rest of the summer.

We almost saw Jack Hannahan at second last night.
A watched plot never thickens.
That's at least five games the Reds bullpen has lost in the 8th inning or later. Remember those games at the end of the season if/when the Reds miss the playoffs or have to play in a one game wildcard.
Can we also remember the 7 run 8th inning the Reds had against the Cardinals to pull out a victory?
I'm going to remember the middle of the 3rd inning in last night's game. I drank a
Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy. For a lighter beer, those things are really good and refreshing when the weather's warm.
