    I never said I had a problem with people overreacting in a game thread. But an overreaction should be able to be responded to, and corrected, when it happens. And unlike this kind of comment that happens once in a blue moon, the constant negativity in this thread happens every night all night and usually by the same folks.

    As I said, I'm not denying Phillips overreacted. But I find it just as ironic people that overreact constantly on a message board are outraged that Phillips overreacted at comments made about him. He's showing emotion. He went too far, yes, but he's just reacting out of frustration. Just think he should be cut some slack.

    Reds have now out scored St Louis 16-14 in this series. That means they've won at least one of the two games, right?

    Shaking my head. The series from Hades.

    Yea, I get that he is frustrated. It classless for any human to say what he said to ctrent. You can go off on someone without calling them a "fat m-fer."

    But I guess it's ok because he's a baseball player.
    Absolutely. Trent is a good guy. He didn't deserve that.

    I don't think anybody is justifying or saying BP was in the right for what he said, but Trent is a big boy and he knows how these ballplayers can get. Much ado about nothing, IMO.
    "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."

    Choo makes the third out twice in the first three innings. What were the pregame odds of that happening?

    Whatever Phillips did, right or wrong, perhaps it helped wake the Reds up.

    9-0 Reds, bottom third, Bailey pitching to Johnson of the Cards. Single grounded into left. Man on first for Cards.

    Hopefully the Reds now realize that, yes, they can actually compete with the Cardinals and this silly peeing-down-their-leg act is over.

    I'm convinced that the Cardinals made a Faustian deal at some point in the last 15 years.

    There is zero chance that Johnson is calling this game.
