    I wouldn't care how many more runs the Rockies scored tonight, I wouldn't pull Parra from this game to waste another BP arm, and I know there's an off day tomorrow.

    Manny could end up striking out the side
    "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."

    If the starter had pitched six decent innings tonight, the relief pitching usage would have been completely different.

    The bullpen hasn't done well lately, they don't get a pass. But tonight, the Reds were using their lesser relievers beginning in the fifth inning.

    It all traces back to the Villareal decision.

    Now he's approaching these other guys like they're middle-of-the-order batters. Where are these pitches to Cargo and Tulo???
    Rounding third and heading for home...

    how long has this half inning lasted?

    I have a 7:30 tee time -- thinking I may be late
    The older I get - the better I was

    and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)

    On a positive note....Reds pitching has SHUT DOWN the Rockies #7 hitter.

    He did it, he struck out the side! Manny is untouchable!!

    It's been discussed pretty extensively on this thread. Sir Charles thinks the Reds had little choice.

    But since Cueto didn't feel right after last Friday's game, the Reds could have looked ahead and kept Cingrani in waiting for tonight. He pitched Sunday or Monday at AAA instead.

    The Reds also could have made a roster move and brought up Reynolds or Gallaraga who are not on the forty man roster.

    Villareal is not having a good minor league year and was a sitting duck tonight. IMO the Reds did not use their best pitching depth for this ballgame.

    If I was Dusty, I would tell everyone to not come to the ballpark tomorrow and take a break from baseball.

    Anyone else thinking this team lost steam when BP got sidelined? Not the same team since Cleveland. Lazy....lazy....lazy.
