    We're still bad. Last night we had the offense but not the pitching. Tonight we had the pitching but not the offense. Gonna run out of chances soon.
    "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."

    if you are going to go down -- it might as well be getting the side fanned so there is little suspense

    The older I get - the better I was

    and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)

    That was three impressive final swings from your 2-3-4 hitters.
    Rounding third and heading for home...

    Well, it looks like my first game thread was a bust in terms of the result. Well, afternoon game tomorrow, we'll hope for the split.

    I guess after last night's fiasco the boys just decided to come out and pout. Two straight losses to a Triple A team.

    Reds starting pitchers have to throw a shutout in order to get a W. No offense again tonight. 2nd straight night where the Reds could have gained on the leaders, and the offense stayed at the hotel. Only 39 games left. That was an inspired 9th inning.

    This is reactionary...and I know it...but this game makes me wonder how much we're going to regret the Phillips and Votto contracts in 3 years. We lost and I'm angry. And if we get a WS victory out of it then it's worth every penny. But these guys are not giving us fair return on the investment thus far. Especially Phillips. And saber or no saber...Marty or no Marty...Dusty lineup, etc. Votto's got work to do to earn that money.

    There is not one player on offense who is not underachieving. Bailey is the only pitcher who is underachieving. Maybe pitching is not the name of the game afterall.

    The Reds have the lowest cumulative batting average in the 9th inning in all of MLB.
    .172 avg. It's like they just give up.
