    Calling this team "frustrating" doesn't even do the word justice.

    Fastball is the only pitch Latos is throwing for strikes tonight, and even that isn't consisently a strike.

That's an amazing statement."

    Two on, no outs. Padres announcers saying Pads need to get to Latos, "play with his emotions."

    My prediction was that if the Reds were 9 or ten games out by the end of July, Dusty would get the axe. They won't be 9-10 games out, but they're likely to be 6 1/2 out by tomorrow night. Start the Dusty watch once more.

    Yes! Runner tries for third on a wild pitch there, and is out!

    Alonso's former Reds-dom comes through, thrown out at third.

    So I've been looking at apartments in Brooklyn about twice a week. I've got the itch to move up there bad. Would you recommend the Bronx?

    I know. I'm trying hard to stay positive. But I backslid in a weak moment.

    I can't imagine any scenario where Dusty gets canned this season.

    Dusty isn't going anywhere until AT LEAST the offseason, and that's if they don't make the playoffs.
