    Homer unable to help himself, but some signs of life from the offense this frame. 1-0 good guys.
    "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."

    Silver lining. Turned the lineup over.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    I cannot believe anybody that has played the game would say that reaching first is a bad play.

    Yonder has a nice swing. But the trade had to be made, no regrets. Double play.

    At least Alonso is just hitting singles. Hall was hitting extra base hits all over the place.

    Yonder reminds me of Casey. Sean not Jones.

    For the love of God, just win today. Worse things have happen than a 5-6 road trip.
