Reds playing like a team that all of a sudden doesn't have to overcome 20 years of irrelevance.
We're still good!
"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."
What did you want Hurdle to do. Order the suicide squeeze with the catcher up and Champan on the mound? That would be the true "suicide" squeeze.
On another note, posters give up way too easily. Getting runners on base against Chapman is easier than scoring runs on him.
YESSSS. Go Reds. BIG win.
This post is BABIP-lucky.
Throwing error aside, that may the best pitching performance of his career
Huge win. Chapman was outstanding in the 9th. Let's get the sweep tomorrow
What great composure from Chap.
Yes that was a very impressive infield single. I thought for a second it was leaving the yard. - texasdave 10/13/12
Dang, now I can't say the reds only have one series win against a good team anymore. I guess I can change it to the pirates being the only good team the reds can beat. Nice series win. Lets get the sweep.
The bottom of the ninth was the most intense situation of the season so far in my book. Huge, gutsy performance from Chapman. I'd love to see him start, but there's no one I'd rather have closing this side of Mo Rivera.
"I talked to an advance scout that told me if Joey Votto and Albert Pujols were on the same team he'd advise his team to do the unthinkable...pitch around Votto to get to Pujols." - Buster Olney, ESPN
I was at the game tonight and that 9th inning was one of the most stressful experiences of my Reds fandom. My heart was racing a mile a minute and it didn't calm down until we were walking to Orange Leaf after the game. Aroldis didn't even flinch though and we all erupted in the ballpark when he got that last out! I was especially happy because he shut up this one Pirates fan lady behind me (who wasn't even brave enough to wear Pirates gear to the game, LOL ) who was being really annoying.
"I tried to play golf, but I found out I wasn't very good." -Joey Votto on his offseason hobby search
An MLB.com reporter asked what one thing Votto couldn’t do. “I can’t skate or play hockey,” Votto said. “Well, I can skate ... but I can’t stop.”
