"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."
Pitt up on mariners 2-0 in the 4th and the cards get another vs the AAAstros. Not good.
I blame the offense.
You had to expect some of these starters to come back to earth. Arroyo must notably.
Reds are just not a very consistent offensive team. They had better improve soon because the Cards and Bucs aren't losing that much and the Reds could be 7 games out by next week.
Hey, at least it's a really good pitcher shutting us down today.
Wait, never mind.
Big ballparks like this one in Oakland, (whatever it's officially called these days) are kryptonite to The Reds offense. The offense was built for GABP.
"Man, the pitch looks fast, even in slow motion." Thom Brennaman on Chapman's fastball.
Mes with a "hit." (Any good OF would have caught that ball.)
I'm sure Izturis will hit into a DP here.
As I said. GIDP.
Unbelievable how bad we look recently.
It's not a good day in Reds Country.
Izturis needs to retire. Yesterday.
