    "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."

    I understand it, but I don't like moving Bruce from the 4 hole. He was getting on a roll...you don't mess with that.
    Chapman to the rotation!!!! Do it already!!!!

    I'm guessing it has to do with the fact that Jay is 0 for 8 with 5 Ks against Liriano.

    Thank you. I figured there HAD to be a rational argument for the switch.

    Oh dear god.

    George Grande AND Sean Casey. My computer may explode from the happy, giddy, gushing, overly excited duo at the top of their game.

    *switches to WLW audio* Ahhhh...much better. Let the ice cream talk begin. :O)

    Re: 9/20/13 - Reds vs. Pirates

    I think I'm more stoked for this game (on MLB network so TV versus online) than any other since we came back to CIN from SFO up 2-0 in the 2012 LDS.

    If we win, we'll be tied with the Bucs in WC Slot #1 just 1.5 or .5 games behind STL (if they win or lose theirs vs the Crew).

    If we win, tomorrow night's game, which I'll be watching at PNC, will be an even bigger deal.

    If we win, there's a chance, however lower the probability, that an amazing weekend, thanks to MIL, could have us in first by Sunday, the final game in the series we'll also be in attendance for.

    Finally, if the Cards do hold on for the division, the Liriano/Latos matchup tonight is likely a WC playoff preview.

    What a game--CANNOT wait for first pitch in this one!

    Charles--definitely post or PM me any tips for how to will these guys to victory in road cities and I'll embrace 'em all for PNC tomorrow and Sunday!

    Simple, swap out the Pirates roster for the Astros roster. It might be easier said than done though. Sorry.
