"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."
Simon goes all Chapman on the Brewers. Wow!
Well, with all the bullpen concerns.....this was certainly a stud performance by Simon to keep the rest of the pen rested, and finish very solid, especially the last two innings.
Baseball is like church. Many attend, few understand
What a great effort from Simon. I'd love to see more relievers given the chance to do this.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

Agree 100%. Love the 3 inning save.I'd love to see more relievers given the chance to do this.

I'm not a "long run " kind of guy and this team is built to win now so I keep Cingrani in the bull pen. Just be careful and don't pull a Scott williamson on him.
Baker likes to make points when he does not like something....then contradicts the point with another player over the same situation. I realize he is the Anti Earl Weaver but Lasorda also pitched Orel and Pedro and Alejandro Pena...out of the bullpen, then had them start when they were ready
