"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."
Mesoraco! I'm glad he's coming around. The Red's really need his offense in the lineup.
Bad AB by Cozart.
This is the ol Left Hander rounding third and heading for home.
Tonites game thread should be dedicated to Vottomatic...RIP brother!
Well, Reds have yet to score a single run!
Ooh! Almost beat that out for a hit. He gets Mesoroaco to third.
Could just have easily been called safe
I thought a tie DID go to the runner?
Ah. Choo grounds out to first. So, no run this time.
Cozart's plate approach is brutal to watch. Mes smoked that ball. You can't hit a ball much harder than that.
Reds waste a lead off double.
I miss Adam Dunn.
Bad call by Baker to bunt Tony, leaving Choo to face the lefty.
That kid can swing the lumber.
Everything is perfect, but there is a lot of room for improvement. --- Shunryu Suzuki-roshi
Normally you want to move the runner to third. But the pitcher is on deck.
So Cozart tries to get a hit. The ball was hit reasonably well, just too high and a fly out.
Not a good result, but I don't see what was so brutal about it.
