    "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."

    I'm surprised by that lineup. Usually Dusty gives the day games to the bench guys. Especially since this is a right handed pitcher I would have expected Paul to maybe get a start, Hannahan to get a start, and possibly Izturis to get a nod too.

    Maybe Dusty is hoping to keep guys hot going into the weekend series?

    Glad to see Latos on the Mound today. A win today and the Reds can really put some distance between themselves and the D-backs. Hopefully Mat can get some run support and the bullpen to work behind him. He could very easily be at 15 wins right now had the pieces of the puzzle worked out in his favor.

    Dbacks lineup. Cahill's numbers look a lot like McCarthy's. Hopefully the Reds can rattle around Cahill too.

    1. Gerardo Parra (L) RF

    2. Adam Eaton (L) CF

    3. Paul Goldschmidt (R) 1B

    4. Martin Prado (R) 3B

    5. Aaron Hill (R) 2B

    6. Jason Kubel (L) LF

    7. Wil Nieves (R) C

    8. Didi Gregorius (L) SS

    9. Trevor Cahill (R) P

    The Dbacks leaving Cincy with nothing gained is big....but leaving having lost a game is even bigger. Dusty putting this line-up out there signifies its importance.

    Mez's bat of late has earned him a place at the big table. Hanny is better behind it, but right now Mez is better at it (although Hanigan has shown some life recently).

    Home plate umpire today is Will Little, who I coincidentally know very little about. He has never ump'd behind the plate for Latos or Cahill in their careers.

    Is he a recent callup from the minors? The ump's tight zone last night was getting a little annoying, and it would help if Latos doesn't get flustered with a zone like that today.

    He was the home plate umpire in this game: http://tricitiessports.com/uvawise-f...menu=89&mad=No


    It was at the time and still the worst call I've ever seen. Police had to line the field to finish the game.
    This is the ol Left Hander rounding third and heading for home.

    If you "highlight" the text it becomes readable.

    The solution is easy enough-- just highlight the text. But, yeah, without doing so, it's essentially impossible to read. I can only assume it was some sort of coding error, because I took a look at some other articles on the site and they all looked fine-- black on white.

    Here's a tweet from Aug. 3 from a poster on this site:

    Went to College with the HP Ump in #Reds game. Hated him, he knew I was a Reds fan. Already know why we're going to lose tonight.
    Both teams were complaining about him that night, to the point it was mentioned on the telecast. Too lazy to go back and look at the game thread.

    I doubt the guy has risen this far in his profession and would be so unprofessional.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Ah, looks like Will Little debuted in the majors just a short time ago:
