    *whew* I thought that was gone. I don't care about the save situation. I care about the way pitchers are warmed up. If you warm him up...use him, or shelve him for the game. Don't warm them up multiple times. I would've used him.

    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

    Mitch Williams is a fantastic color analyst and I've said it many times. I never would have expected it from him, but he's excellent.

    Parra gets a ground out. Looks like we're going extras here (need one more though).

    If this game ends up being the Reds, it would be entirely in spite of themselves.

    Really? Parra? Chapman was warmed already. Why let him cool off in the hopes to use him later...just forcing him to warm up mulitple times? I don't normally pick on Dusty, but that doesn't make much sense to me.
    I can complain. The Reds had the bases loaded and the pitcher threw one up there on an absolute tee for Bruce and he missed it. After he K's, Paul came up and got an even fatter one and didn't even swing and eventually K'd to end the inning. Those two PAs were about as bad as anything we saw on defense tonight. Gotta hit the fat ones. Need at least a fly ball there.

    Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS

    Jay Bruce is one of those players who is so good defensively, his offense is like icing on the cake. He doesn't just make great plays with his legs and glove, but how often does anyone try to go first-to-third or second-to-home on him? Very rarely. His reputation is a weapon.

    Both teams have been lucky. Example: The Rangers are lucky that Jack Hannahan is on the Reds' roster.

    Also, the whole "3 errors in one inning that led to 3 runs" thing. There was that, too.

    That's not a team I worry about until they at least get back to .500. Personally, I think they're toast.

    I've liked him on MLB for some time. Have only gotten to hear him do color like this a few times, but I'm a big fan. He absolutely nailed it on that last AB.

    Righties have an OPS of 1.252 against Manny Parra this year. Why is he facing them in the 9th inning of a tie game?

    Did that come from his catch to start the inning?
