"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."
Hilarious! Last night's game thread discussion was who would have to sit after a productive night at the plate....Heisey or Ludwick. Looks like both.
It certainly would be nice to see Reynolds wrap up this series for the Reds. Here's hoping the Brewers don't foil that plan.
Heads of state that ride and wrangle. That look at your face from more than one angle. Can cut you from their bloated budgets. Like sharpened knives through Chicken McNuggets.
Isn't Estrada a leftie?
Paul hasn't played for a while, so he needs some reps.
But Heisey is hot and Ludwick finally looked better at the plate.
Hannahan was very good in the field last night also.
Let's see how it goes.
Estrada is a righty who likes to give up the long ball. He's been pretty good since coming off the DL.
If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.
Here's a nice article about him and Romo for the WBC

Is Cingrani DL'd?
...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.
It's all part of a new Reds incentive program, Homer For A Day Off.

Makes sense to sit Ludwick for a day game after a night game.
Paul basically hits RH pitchers who throw fast balls. It's a decent match up for him.
