    Not one of Bailey's better nights, again. He's not terribly erratic, but his 'stuff' isn't really as sharp as it can be.

    It was a hell of an AB by Phillips, for the record.
    It made me want to scream and punch Brantley, bit never a child.

    Me too, but that isn't saying all that much. Brantley is atrocious...especially at how excited he always sounds when something goes well for the other team. Drives me crazy.

    Nice catch X.
    "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."

    Welsh is just jarring to listen to. Nothing flows, esp when a ball is hit in play and Welsh trips over his own words trying to say everything fast enough. It's a gift that he simply doesn't possess.

    I haven't had that "jarring" feeling when listening to Brantley. Even Jim Day is better than Welsh IMO.

    Some real nice pitches by Homer there against Lake.

    Better get used to it. It probably won't be too long until they play about as many night games as everyone else.

    Us TV folks will take Welsh back. In return, you'll get Brantley.
