    Hoover looks chubby to me today.

    Hoping when Ludwick comes back he hits .400 with 30 HR's in last 45 games, that might salvage the offense

    What is Hoover's warm up music?

    You're right, he's not. But you also don't have to be a hall of famer to throw a shutout either. He's a good pitcher. You can twist that anyway you want to, but it's a fact. A good pitcher throwing a good outing can shut down ANY team.

    Bailey CYA winner

    Who has said such a thing? Decent pitchers are capable of having shutdown days, that's all.

    I know the negativity has worn people out but it really is disappointing that most likely the biggest series of the season will be a series with Diamondbacks.

    Does that make it a good thing?

    I was thinking when Hoover got behind 2-0 to Denorfia, he should just put him on first. Glad he didn't listen to my inner-self.

    Don't get me wrong. I think he'd be a good addition as well. He just strikes me as a guy who plays better against us for some reason.

    No. And no one would say yes to that silly question.

    But a remark that "if you are a legit team you don't lose at home in August to a crappy team" is uncalled for.

    Mr Obvious would like to point out that the Reds haven't lost this one yet.

    He's a historically decent pitcher having a bad season.
