    Hey is travis wood throwing a no hitter? As far as i can tell he has not given up a hit which would make this a no hitter in progress!

    So far, thru 4 innings, Travis Wood is throwing a NO HITTER and a SHUT OUT against the Reds.

    Does it work if it's a fan of the other team that mentions it?

    Still wondering what possessed Baker, a manager consumed with "splitting up the lefties" to bunch them up -- against a lefty.

    Against a righty, no problem, would fully support it, the Cubs did it today, five lefties in a row against Leake.

    Why suddenly did the Reds bunch their lefties against a lefty? I guess it doesn't matter if the team gets no hits, but just strikes me as a really odd move.

    Travis Wood is throwing a no-hitter. I'm surprised the Reds still don't have a hit. When was the last time the Reds got no-hit? Has Travis Wood ever thrown a no-hitter? A no-hitter is pretty rare.

    Is that enough? No?

    No-hitter, no-hitter, no-hitter, no-hitter, no-hitter, no-hitter, no-hitter, no-hitter, no-hitter, no-hitter...that aught'a do it. :O)

    I'm tellin ya, after the game Dusty is going to say "I told you so." This is a win-win for him. If the lineup works Dusty will take credit, if the lineup doesn't work Dusty will say "And THAT, ladies and gentlemen is why you don't bunch lefties!"

    Bruce and Votto are #2 and #3 regulars hitting vs. lefties. Choo moving to second allows the speedster at the front, and potentially gives him the benefit of seeing better pitches with Votto behind him.

    I love this lineup.

    Frazier almost had one there, but it's just a long foul.


    Takes a walk, instead, but it's not like Wood had a perfect game anyway. Come on, let's do some damage!

    No hitter alert, no hitter alert...

    Odd to see all those empty rows in the lower deck of Wrigley. Dude retrieved the long foul ball without much competition.

    I probably hate Cubs fans as much as most here, but I love Wrigley. I love the ivy, I love the bleachers and I especially love the bullpens being right there by the fans along the lines. Yes, it may be dirty and the fans are obnoxious...but it's still a fun place to sit and watch a game on a sunny afternoon.

    Let's see if Mr. Automatic Out can get on base with luck or something.
