And now we're going to fry the bullpen before a very important divisional series.
    Because if every loss, upwards of 70+ of them each year, makes you that miserable, you should probably have chosen another hobby a long time ago.
    "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."

    Not really true IMO. Pitchers that dominate AAA are MLB pitchers. IMO AAAA pitchers are guys not good enough for the bigs but are good enough for AAA. Basically AAA is their ceiling.

    Dusty is glad the Rockies are hitting home runs. That way they aren't clogging up the bases.

    None since the first .

    I guess four runs in the first is the Reds Kryptonite.

    Even from the crowd who freaks out every time we get behind here I expected a free pass tonight. It was a bad situation where we had to throw a guy out there who shouldn't be here. Not often I'm surprised when I check a game thread lol.

    Anyway, the offense will get us more.

    hah -- golf is my hobby -- I'm very comfortable with failure on my part -- it is other's failures that I dislike

    The older I get - the better I was

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

    Reds waited until the last minute to announce the pitching change to keep attendance good tonight. D'oh!

    Villareal is just not an MLB caliber pitcher. He was awful. He's organizational depth.

    We may yet pull out this game but dang...this team is so frustrating. The talent; the potential...it's all there. But we keep getting tripped up by injuries, slumps, bad luck...

    Starting to wonder if Cueto's just an eggshell. I never wanted to before but I'm to the point with him that I listen to each and every offer I get if I'm Walt.

    If Cueto has to go DL for more than the backloaded 15 days there's no doubt you bring Tony back up.

    Jon Garland is tossing garbage up there and we've done what we did on Sunday..what we do almost every Sunday...bring the lumber the first inning and then hibernate. These guys should be tagging him every inning. But I would wager anyone willing that we end this game with less than 6 runs.

    So much to love about this team but simultaneously so much about which to be frustrated. And yeah, I went to that length to avoid ending a sentence with a preposition. Attention to detail and commitment to excellence.
