    "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."

    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.

    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?

    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.

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

    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.

    Well the Reds are presented w/ an opportunity to do something I think we all would have taken coming off the weekend, winning 3 or 4 vs the team directly behind them for the last WC spot while at worst staying even w/ the 2 teams directly ahead of them them in the divsion chase playing teams running out the string.

    After today there will be 34 games left (for the Reds, Arizon has 36 games left)

    If the Reds win, they'll have a 7 game lead

    Go .500 the rest of the season (17-17) the Dbacks would have to go 25-11 (.694%) to tie the Reds
    Go 14-20, and the DBacks have to go 22-14 (.611%)
    Go 11-23, and the DBacks have to go 19-17 (.527%, or about their current winning %)

    On the flip side, if the Reds lose, they'd end the day 5 games ahead of the DBacks, meaning that if they go 13-21 down the stretch, which is still pretty bad, the DBacks would only have to win at the current clip (19-17) the rest of the way to catch the Reds.

    I hope all my math is correct, but in short either way it would take a either a pretty large collapse or an extremely hot streak for the DBacks to catch the Reds. If the Reds won today, its going to take a little bit of both for the DBacks to catch the Reds.

    And thusly, Dusty is going w/ his A team today, hoping to put the DBacks out of site in his review mirror. There are still quite a few games w/ St Louis & Pittsburgh, so a .500 finish going forward isn't garunteed.
