    Plus, c'mon, wins are wins, but even the Astros have swept the Angels. Not exactly an indicator of "force".
    "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'll quit making fun of them when they overcome their epic post AS Break collapses. Right now, they are on a two year streak that must be overcome before they SHOULD be taken seriously.

    For example, they have already created one major problem with heavy bullpen use to get where they are today.

    Reality check. The Reds have gained 1.5 games on the Cards since they lost to STL on Sunday night 15 days ago.

    Cubs doing some house cleaning. They release Marmol and Ian Stewart.

    Wonder if Gully can fix Marmol? Oops, went Back to the Future there for a minute.

    I doubt it will last, but the Astros just took the lead 4-3 over the Cards. Now in the 5th.

    The Tribe's Scott Kazmir taking a no-no into the 7th inning at Baltimore. Would be Cleveland's first no-hitter since Len Barker's in 1981 (the year I graduated high school ).

    And at the exact same time I was typing that, the no-hit bid ends with a leadoff double by Manny Machado.

    call me shocked -- Houston beat the Whiney Ones
    The older I get - the better I was

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

    Cardinals and Pirates are tied for first and the best record in baseball.

    Reds remain 3.5 back

    Cards have lost 4 of 5, Reds 5 of 6.

    Pirates have gone 47-25 since starting the season 1-5

    I'm actually really comfortable with the Reds current standing. If they can stay within five-six games at the break, I like Cincinnati's chances. The Pirates bullpen is going to be greatly fatigued come September and the Cardinals are currently squandering a golden opportunity to distance themselves from the Reds.
    This is the ol Left Hander rounding third and heading for home.

    Brewers put up 3 against Cole and the Buccos in the first and now the Pirates just put up 7 spot in the second. C'mon man.
