    Can't defend Dusty for a move like that.
    There will be plenty of games down the stretch bigger than this one.

    Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS

    Reds are facing a tough offense and it's showing right now.
    Are you a Cardinals fan? Uh, the Reds have some pretty damn good hitters too. Votto, Bruce, Choo, Phillips. Mesoraco is coming into his own. This is inexcusable to perform like this time and time again against the Cardinals.

    This team was supposed to be a Ferrari, but it's turned into a Chevette pretty quickly.
    Chevettes are sweet!

    I meant "up to this point.". And the more big games they lose, the smaller those later big games get.

    I didn't even know Pedro Villarreal was called back up. That tells you everything you need to know about this team. He's not even a good AAA pitcher. And he's on our 25-man roster? I don't care if it's briefly. He has no business being on the team.

    Well, no. Considering they're 4.5 games clear of a playoff spot, that's not true.

    I'm resigned to the fact the Reds SHOULD hang on to the 2nd WC. The teams closest to us aren't playing any better and unlikely to catch us. Anything higher is not going to happen.

    Can someone cite an arcane statistic about the 2012 Giants to make me feel better about this latest disaster? Thanks in advance.

    Am I a Cardinals fan for pointing out that they have plenty of offense even without Molina behind the plate and in the lineup? They're not like the pirates for the last two years.... offense thrives and struggles based on one bat's performance.

    It's too bad you have to actually win games against good teams eh?

    I'll take it. Just get us in. The way this season is going we'll be the last team in ... but end up being the last team standing. Just a wacky season.

    If the Cards are the 1st WC and the Reds the 2nd, will the FO have the wisdom to start Cingrani? I doubt it.

    It was a serious question: Are you a Cardinals fan? I wasn't being sarcastic.
