    A sense of urgency would be a nice thing to see occasionally when the wheels are falling off.
    I totally understand your point, but the season is a marathon, not a sprint

    The Spurs rested their big players against the Heat in the regular season... Didn't matter come playoff time that they did.

    It's not about "conceding" games. It's about giving yourself the best chance to win the most games over the course of a long season.
    Ah yes. Those lousy Rockies who took 2 of 3 from the Reds and pounded us for 17 runs.

    Reds with three consecutive walks.

    Heisey up next. Anyone think the walk streak will continue? Not I.

    Chris is hitting tonight, a (good) correction is due, hope he does something here.

    May 2011 was probably a better hot streak but this is the best Jay Bruce has ever looked at the plate. Several pitches that AB that Jay would chase on a regular basis before. Hell of an AB.

    They now have Tulo out....and Gonzalez has been hurt. Bad timing for the Reds.

    A base hit here and it's a game again.
    This is the ol Left Hander rounding third and heading for home.

    I do not know how Bruce missed 2 of those fastballs on 3-2....but that AB does not happen a couple of years ago or maybe even last year. To be that patient and not give in. Great work.

    Terrible call on 0-1. Arroyo certainly wasn't getting that call.

    How's everyone? Just dropped in to see if anyone was giving up and man, some were. I really think that the Reds have a chance, but with this lineup, we needed a good game from Bronson. Didn't happen. Maybe HiC can get a hit. I guess not. Weak just like LF and C this year.

    That's awesome logic. The Marlins beat the Cardinals in a series a few weeks ago, they must be the best team in baseball.

    It's a long season. 3 games mean almost nothing.
