    I suggest going back and reading the first 7 innings of the game thread yesterday right now.

    Fun stuff.

    Only 1.5 behind STL and 6 up on the 2nd WC.

    We have to beat the teams we are suppose to beat...just like last year.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    His command the previous two innings was not nearly as sharp. I just figure it's a matter of not being comfortable running him back out there another inning.

    Regardless, I can't fathom why anyone wouldn't want Chapman out there closing the door in that situation like he just did. That's what you call nailing the door shut!

    Boy, when Chapman gets his slider working, he's Dibble-esque.

    It's about
    the ball,
    the bat,
    the mitt,
    the bases,
    and the fans

    Ya but the game of baseball has never seen anything like Chapman.
    Attended 1976 World Series in my Mother's Womb. Attended 1990 World Series Game 2 as a 13 year old. Want to take my son to a a World Series Game in Cincinnati in my lifetime.

    not to mention, batting averages go up normally, more times you face the same pitcher in the same game.

    If it were 4-0 I say let him try and finish, however, 2-0...no way. Bring in Chapman.

    Latos had "perfect games" stuff out there tonight, but it takes A ton of luck to get a no hitter.

    Hard to ever argue that bringing in Chapman doesn't increase your chances of wining.

    i knew something's been missing with these guys all year and tonight I figured out what it was. I expect ludwick to struggle for awhile but he just makes this team look a lot better by being out there. Lets go on a winning streak now.

    Florimon...not Casilla. Dozier made a play the Reds tv announcers need to watch.

    Masterful performance by Latos.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    Stars of the game:

    3) Chapman
    2) Phillips
    1) Latos

    Pure dominance by Latos and Chapman. The trade for Latos is one of the best trades the Reds have ever made.
    I miss Adam Dunn.
