"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."
Cingrani takes the loss despite allowing only 2 hits and not a single earned run.
Winning series will do if the Cards and Pirates play .500 baseball here on out, but nothing shows they will do that.
Not this year...maybe a Wild Card
99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
Bailey CYA winner
Hamilton ROY & GG
6-4 Cubs. This game is fun to watch.
Jim Kelch "feels bad for Hannahan."
Aww. Nice thing for a Little League announcer to say about a kid who's feeling bad about making 3 errors.
Wait, he's talking about a grown man making $2 million per year? He FEELS BAD for him? Hahahaha! You can't make this stuff up. How about as the Reds' announcer you call a spade a spade and say what a joke it is that this guy is even on the team?
Hey Kelch, feel bad for the guy who is laid off and is having trouble feeding his family. Don't feel bad for some guy who is basically stealing $2 million per year from the Reds.

"Man, the pitch looks fast, even in slow motion." Thom Brennaman on Chapman's fastball.
I mean, Hannahan has been a fairly high regarded fielding 3rd basemen for quite a long time. I take no solace in the fact he had a terrible game tonight, especially fielding. The guy has made a career on that, and earned his right to making some decent money.
Yes, I feel bad for him tonight, as I'm sure he was quite embarassed in what was a pretty unusual performance from him. No Hannahan is not a great player, but he's certainly been a proven defensive commodity over his career that he certainly doesn't deserve to be deemed "a joke" that the guy is even on a major league roster.
Hannahan has no business on an MLB roster, IMO. He's a Triple-A player.
Bateman, so surprising you would take a personal shot like "What's happened to you in life." Nice work there. I'm sure you would say some BS like that to someone's face.
