    This guy is WAY too good a hitter to be seeing the meat the Reds staff has served up.
    Rounding third and heading for home...

    2 starts including tonight...I'm fine with it. More than that...I'd want to see a 40 man roster change. And they should know the answer to that shortly I'd think.

    Yeah what kind of bum gives up homeruns to scrubs like Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzski?
    "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."

    I'd give Pedro V until the pitcher's spot. Then he's out. He should not face the top of this batting order again.

    And nothing good to Helton.

    I get the fact that the guy is roster filler but you can't you throw a pitch in THAT location to an elite cleanup hitter.


    The other problem tonight is the Reds seem to be cursed when they have a big first inning. They always seem to take the rest of the night off.

    Yep, this lineup will crush him if they see him a third time.

    Villarreal pitching is a total miss management of the organization. Provided, Cueto alerted the team of his issue after his last start. It's just flat out unacceptable.
    This is the ol Left Hander rounding third and heading for home.

    Yep, I called him a "bum."

    He's a guy with a 5+ ERA at Triple-A. That's a fact. It's not impressive. Neither is your poor attempt at sarcasm.

    Fair enough, but I'd go with Tony C.

    I seem to recall Villarreal was crushed in spring training.

    Helton has had a rough life, Peyton Manning backup at Tennessee, then a really good MLB career. Not too shabby!!!
