Reds & Nats, 2013 LCS. Take2 (9/13) Reds but no Nats
Come on, Duke did not lose this game for the Reds. I mean, Duke lost this game, but Duke did not lose this game. If you know what I mean.
With the roll this team is on, the Astros might pose a threat. Hope we don't come out of Texas saying, "Houston............we have a problem."
Talent is God Given: be humble.
Fame is man given: be thankful.
Conceit is self given: be careful.

"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."
Not saying the game was lost by not using Hamilton but it could have definitely made a difference. If Hamilton steals right away we all know BP would bunt him to third. They probably still pitch around/walk Votto and now the Bruce long fly is a sac fly and Chapman is pitching the bottom of the 9th. You have a great weapon for close games late. Use it.
The opportunities are completely different if Hamilton is running rather than Choo.

I'm confident we make the postseason. I'm just no longer confident that we'll be at all successful.
