    The home run ball still counts as at least one run for the hitting team. Without a lot of mess. Pirates are hitting them, the Reds might try one or two.

    True, but 50 pitches through 3 is not going to save the bullpen. Given usage in last two days and 11 games in the next 10 days, that is important.

    I don't think I was clear. The arg. is that Locke has too low HR rate, and that it's bound to correct. It will, but not as dramatically as it would 10 years ago.

    Here's a thought for all free swingers (Heisey, Bruce, Frazier, BP...bench)...if strike 1 is a pinpoint strike on the corner....the next pitch is going to look just like that pitch.....but fall to the dirt.

    Hope this helps.

    Reds offense in hiding again?...1 run and 7 hits in the last 11 innings.

    I agree. He's impressed me more than Cole (so far). He has good stuff and Leake like savvy (minus Leake's control).

    Dodgers pounding Wash again, 6-0, 2nd inning. Dodgers can be in first after today if AZ loses.

    Sorry, didn't understand your point. I don't know much about Locke so I have no view on it.

    But here is something I do have a view on. Corky Miller has been a great organization guy for the Reds. But it is inconceivable that he is playing this game.

    Not sure if Mesoraco's back was acting up, but against the main competitors you have to have 8 hitters in the lineup.

    The Reds really messed up the catcher position this season. Given Hanigan's wear and tear and given Mes' relative lack of experience, this team needed to have a Navarro type in the wings.

    I hope Corky proves me wrong and hits two grand slams today. But c'mon, Walt.

    NL West is a mess this season.

    The Reds' faith in Mesoraco was totally unwarranted IMO. That was their biggest gaffe. Definitely.
