Just for the record, Wily Peralta is not a scrub. He is very highly-regarded. In his last three starts coming into tonight's contest he had a 1.59 ERA. He gave up zero runs to the Braves and Nationals in that stretch. He was throwing 96 still in the ninth inning. Maybe, like Homer Bailey, it just took him awhile for things to click.
there's nothing like bowling a 300 game! 13 now and retired.
Ricky henderson has a higher OBP than C. patterson and he's retired. C. Trent 6-14-2008

"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."
That said, I haven't been too upset these last two games. I'm already with Derek Bell in operation shut down mode. Next up is apathy, where I'll go a week or two between watching games. I've got the practice down well. I have a decade of using it.
That team was actually 26-27 after 53 games...and led the NL in BA with about .285 through May.
That is How BAD it got in the summer. Live through that!
