    Never, ever let Parra face a rightie. Or anyone for that matter. Tie game.

    Handy Manny isn't so handy lately.
    "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."

    Why? Parra has been getting it done all season. No reason to turn on him for a couple doubles.

    Parra has done great as a LOOGY. Why would you ever let him face a righty in a crucial situation?

    Marshall is, or at least was, the only southpaw in this pen I trust with righties.

    He allowed two runs and left with the Reds leading. Considering his role, that's good enough for me. If we lose this one, it's on the bullpen.

    If you couldn't make the conclusion (and I'm not saying you couldn't) that "he's not just fast" based on a season of AAA ball, you certainly can't change your mind based on 3 hits.
    At the very least, if you're going to make snap assessments based on one game, it should at least be a game against major league opposition. This is the Astros.

    I would have thought Parra has earned at least a little bit of trust, but I guess not.

    Parra seems to be slumping a bit.

    This was the risk of Reynolds. Have to go through the whole pen and who knows how it winds up.

    Oh well, what's done is done.

    Nats lost, magic number is 6.
