    Of course all his HR will be of the in-the-park variety. But I anticipate at least 97 of those.

    Regardless of the outcome of this game, the decision to start Reynolds was indefensible.

    For the record, I'm complaining about it. Ten games left, I don't want Parra blowing leads.

    Hope Lecure holds it this inning.

    You are way, way, WAY off.

    21 plate appearances against RHB in April
    65 plate appearances since

    So basically before tonight, he'd given up a grand total of two extra base hits against RHB in the last 65 batters.

    I'm confused. Why was Parra pitching against right handed hitters?

    Colorado escapes a jam after getting one back. 4-3 at stretch time.

    We are in agreement, although I might say the decision was "probably unwise."

    I think the Reds saw some slippage with Latos and wanted to give him the extra two days off. That's the only explanation that makes sense to me.

    For the record, I stand corrected. And for the record, I still think it was a dumb move.
