    And this one belongs to the Reds!

    just got home. Absolutely pitiful crowd. It wouldn't surprise me if the Reds fans out numbered the Astros fans. I got a good laugh when I saw them attempt to start a wave. I mean there were whole sections empty. LOL.

    Cueto looked pretty darned good. I said before the game that I'd pull him at 80 pitches. Nearly spot on I think. The only hitter that really looked bad was Luddy. He was swinging for that short porch in left and just looked horrible.

    1-0 for me. :O) Let's get 2 more fellas!

    YES! I just saw the Stl final. :O) It was 1-1 when I left the juice box. Nice! Grabbed that game back on both of them. *grin*

    I may be in the minority...but I still say we take the division.

    Btw...just thought I'd toss this in. Batting practice was a blast. It was an absolute HR show...and the featured player is one you'd NEVER expect. Corky. He was POUNDING the ball. Too funny.

    Kal's right. But to be fair...it was because the ball squirted away from the catcher...Luddy could see the play, Cozy couldn't. Ryan started towards third and that's when Cozart was watching him...then he took his eyes off Ryan. Mistake on Cozart without a doubt. But considering he knocked in 4 runs...I think he made up for it.

    This is a home game basically for Logan. I'm glad they went with him. He had a TON of family in attendance. So did Hamilton and Bruce.

    Lets assume JC pitches well in his next start and throws 100 pitches. Do we consider starting him in the post season?

    Leake vs. Cueto? Sounds like a pretty easy decision to me.

    Cueto looked a lot better than I thought he would. I thought he would be rusty and struggle with is control. It helped facing the Astros but still a good performance. I would thin he would start Sunday against the Pirates. Maybe go 90 pitches or so. Reds just have to keep winning. I doubt they catch two teams but you never know as long as you win.

    Glad you had an awesome time at the game Sir Charles! I'm LOLing hard at them trying to start the wave, LOL Hopefully you'll get the guys two more wins there!

    That's the plan. I also loved watching the guys during BP...they clearly enjoy each others company. They were having a blast pre-game. I love seeing that. Hamilton & Choo are good friends. Chapman & Corky. Sometimes the connections are surprising. The 2 guys who warm up separately are the 2 guys you wouldn't expect. Luddy & Phillips.

    No, I mean starting, like game 163 starting, like Cueto instead of Latos or Homer.
