    The hole is there is no one of quality to plug in when the setup man and the LF went down. The Cards and Pirates have had plenty of key pieces go down yet they don't skip a beat. The Reds play injured players (Broxton, Cueto), they bring guys off the DL only to watch them go immediately back on (Marshall, Cueto). They fool around with ill-timed rehab stints (Heisey). They have to bring up people from AA because they have no one at AAA worthwhile.

    Sounds like management has dropped the ball as much as some of these players.

    It's a narrative, but is it a correct one ?

    I'm talking about the holes in LF, 3B, SS, and C. Along with pretty much the whole bullpen.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    You have a pitcher who twists his body every time he pitches. He continues to pitch that way.

    He is constantly getting injuries to his torso, not arm injuries.

    Wouldn't it seem that he needs to take off considerable time to heal; and that he needs a new delivery?

    I mean, is it just a coincidence that he has this extreme kind of motion and is now suffering these kinds of injuries?

    Something was definitely wrong with Johnny in the first inning, starting with the first pitch. How could Dusty or Price not have noticed that?

    Thank goodness Leake is having the year he is.

    Just get Marshall back and fix the bullpen and we'll be alright. The Pirates can't keep this up and neither can the Cards.

    Well, the good news is that this will help Cingrani transition into the rotation.

    Cueto didn't look right from the start. His velocity was down and his command was way off. Hopefully it's nothing too serious.

    How do you know they didn't?

    Seems like the Reds always leave a runner at 3rd with 2 out so I checked the team stats and the Reds are batting .185 with Runners scoring position w/ 2 outs. That ranks 28th out of 30.
