"No matter how good you are, you're going to lose one-third of your games. No matter how bad you are you're going to win one-third of your games. It's the other third that makes the difference." ~Tommy Lasorda
Carpenter hit in the back with a 99 MPH fastball. It's first and second.
That didn't hit him.
He hasn't had a good year. His K rate is down. His ERA is poor. His LOB rate is poor. His velocity is down.
He showed signs of improvement his last times out. But this is not a lights out reliever, not so far this season.
We're good again!
everybody unclench your cheeks.
"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."
"Baseball players are smarter than football players. How often do you see a baseball team penalized for too many men on the field?" ~ Jim Bouton
Reds win! Big bounce back win.
I miss Adam Dunn.
Beltran out at first, that's it! Reds have won 4-2! This one belongs to the Reds!
Cards are arguing, but the fireworks are blasting.
seriously -- did that touch him?
The older I get - the better I was
and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)
Reds win, and the Cardinals are crying.
chapman has not been sharp, i swear every win against the Cards the Reds have to scrap, claw and fight and rarely get an easy win like they would get over us
