"I never argue with people who say baseball is boring, because baseball is boring. And then, suddenly, it isn't. And that's what makes it great." - Joe Posnanski
1-2-3 for Volquez.
"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."
Volquez might go 8 innings at about 95 pitches tonight. I can't believe how bad this offense is.
This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.
This is just miserable baseball.
It's going to be extremely difficult for me to manage my anger if we lose this game. I can't take another dormant offensive performance against a horrible pitcher.
This is all starting to get a bit 2011 for me. Remember when we were assured by everyone - Dusty, the saber guys, etc. - that that team was going to explode after the ASG and they completely bit the dust?
We are making Edinson look way more pitch efficient tan I remember him being.

Also Louisville game was rained out, so Broxton's rehab will wait another day
If the offense is so bad, why don't some of you miserable fogies go to bed? Does it help your health to drag everyone down with you?
Everyone realizes how much they're struggling right now. I don't see the need to constantly lament it every inning.
