    One more thing. Against the contending teams (LA, Ariz, Cards, Bucs, and Atlanta, the Reds are 15-22 this year. The Pirates are 20-18, and the Cards are 20-20. Here is the difference and the reason why the Reds are where they are.

    Can the Reds pull a 2011 Cards??
    That's what made this game so painful.. Saw the Reds get their early lead. Had to take a kid somewhere, I come back, it was still 4-3? or 5-3 ? I was feeling good.
    Then I saw the whole thing unravel.. What a nightmare.

    Parra and Hoover have been good more often than not, but that was pretty much a worst case scenario for both (Well, I guess Parra got one out that mattered, to his credit, if I remember correctly)

    Sadly, I doubt the Reds can pull some kind of miracle run in the postseason. It would be awesome, but games like this symbolize the season. We are a good team. I'm not mad at the season.. but the Pirates and Cards are both better.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    There is a sliver of hope. October baseball is not about the better team... it's about who is hot at that exact moment. 2012 Giants and 2011 Cards are great examples.

    Maybe I missed the part where the Cardinals are looking to get rid of Jay to their biggest division threat three years before he hits free agency?

    Best part about baseball? I watched this game, went out and met some buddies for some beers and now I'm in a fair mood and ready for tomorrow's (today?) game. Football, I'm still pissed off for a week.
    Is it "next season" yet?

    I have heard that Jay may be a non-tender candidate.
    "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."

    Unfortunately not a chance. He'll still make relative peanuts as a first year arb eligible.

    You asked about Homer....not the team.

    Have to agree. Haven't been that dispirited by the Reds since October. Brutal and not sure what to think going into tonight. Almost glad I have to work late and won't be able to tune in until 4th or 5th inning.

    I think you could say tha about 99% of all pitchers. Very few overpowering pitchers in baseball.

    This was a game not having Marshall and Broxton came home to bite hard. Parra and Hoover didn't get the job done quite obviously. Much better chance with the previous two.
    I'm but resigned to fact the Reds will be a WC team. They just can't compete with the Cardinals this year. I think the pitchers are somewhat intimidated by the Cards hitters and the Reds just don't have enough hitting to match them.

    Absolutely, but the point being made was about two Reds pitchers who when they lack command look very, very hittable. The fact that both have numbers like they do is testament to their ability to not throw, but pitch.

    True, but when the Cards have beaten us in the last 10 or 15 series we've met.. (I forget the exact number, they said it on TV or radio, but it's a lot)
    Doesn't really give me optimism That's why I'd rather face the Cards in a one game wildcard than a series.. Of course, the Cards are probably going to win the division now.

    Thanks for the pickme up though.. I know, it's just a silly game. I should not take it as seriously as I do.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!
