"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."
Would love to see it broken down how many times they've had bases loaded and 0 outs and came out with 1 run or less this season.
Rounding third and heading for home...
I didn't realize that Partch was a Daywalker.
The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.
The Reds might very well lose this game.
On the other hand they may not.
"But I do know Joey's sister indirectly (or foster sister) and I have heard stories of Joey being into shopping, designer wear, fancy coffees, and pedicures."
If there were a runner on 3rd and no outs and Votto grounded out for an RBI, Thom would have lauded Votto for getting the RBI.
...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.
But baseball is not a game where results can be expected per se.
You have a pitcher who figures prominently into the equation. And batters, even the best ones, fail more often than they succeed.
I will only get critical of players who fail over large sample sizes. It's impossible to judge players over one play.
No matter how disappointed I am.
