    Chapman is all over the place. Time to settle down.

    Phillips missed four games after the Pirates hit him. He's the Reds cleanup hitter.

    Then he came back and it took a few more games before he was effective.

    So far, I hear complaints about a Leake softball that hit McCutchen in the back. And a close one that didn't hit Walker.

    So I think the Bucs are still well ahead of the game.

    No, of course not. But give it three months, and he's not just going to transition right back into a starter role.

    Down 3 in the 9th I'd think you'd welcome his wildness tonight.

    Considering what the Pirates did to Brandon in Pittsburgh, I have no problem with anything any of our pitchers do in this series.

    Query: How many games did we lose by nonclosers all of last year?

    Choo made me nervous for some reason on that one. Well hit, but two out.

    Pirates announcers saying that Chapman has a reputation for throwing at people's heads.

    McKenry almost made this a lot more nerve wracking.

    I don't think he's wild. He's not missing his spots by much.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG
