    Marty has his shirt on, for the record.
    "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."

    Agree. Should not have used Cingrani today. Give him rest between outings.

    Reds go into Arizona, a good team. Now Cingrani and Simon are likely out tomorrow.

    I know some feel this was debatable, but I'm annoyed with Dusty's handling of the pen today.

    And now, after the damage is done, Hoover is pitching his second inning.

    Proof positive that Marty Brennaman is colorblind.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    Let me rephrase, no half way decent manager who has ever managed, would ever bring in Chapman into the 7th of a tie game, and for good reason. You have idea how many outs you will need to get nor how many pitchers you will need to use.
    "Man, the pitch looks fast, even in slow motion." Thom Brennaman on Chapman's fastball.

    Did I understand Chris right? Has he been instructed not to wear his Doc Sevrinson jacket and bow tie?
    Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman. Damn glad to meet ya.

    You're the one guy here who did not second guess so kudos for that. I'm still not convinced a tired Simon is all that worse than a fresh Hoover. In any event, if the offense would put some runs on the board, the bullpen wouldn't be so used up.

    Good work by Hoover.

    Yeah, my take was why Simon? He set up the need to battle the Pirates LH guys, sort of backed the Reds into a corner to have to use a LH and well...

    I'm trying to think of any manager ever who brought his closer into a specific situation in the 6th or 7th inning. Raditiz, Bill Henry, duren? I'm not talking about a rubber armed guy like Goose who would get 2 inninng save.

    That's too bad. I thought it looked great. It was a little zany, but it had character.

    Ummm... it's a strategic choice that could go either way. Yes, the fireman approach is rarer, but that doesn't mean it is the lesser option.
