"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."
Choo get hurt? Understand Frazier sitting but I gotta think Choo would be in there unless he was hurt.
To paraphrase Harry Doyle,
"Obviously Baker is thinking... I don't know what the hell Dusty is thinking."

Is BP the guy that gets ceremoniously plunked?
Heard Choo jammed his thumb that slide last night. Will check on it. #reds @Cincienquirer
Stunning lineup. Wow.
Unless Choo's thumb got amputated, he should be in the lineup, as should Frazier. Now it not the time to give guys a day off for anything less than a major injury.
I miss Adam Dunn.

Choo was double switched out of last nights game. Highly unusual. Must be the jammed thumb or other hurt.
Feels like a one run game every time we play Pittsburgh this year. I like that we have Hamilton to run for anyone who gets on late in the game.
I am fine with Choo sitting if he is banged up although it does make the whole head first slide into first even more annoying. Would have liked to see Hamilton get the start instead of Robinson.
Choo did jam his left thumb. "Not bad, but I don't want to make it worse." On the slide: "Stupid play." #reds
I miss Adam Dunn.
I have to wonder why not give Hamilton the start over either of those two.
I want choo available and full strength for the wild card game and beyond.
If he sits today....ok.
But, yeah......why not billy meep-meep?
Don't give me any frup-fru about pressure. Not after the last couple of days.
"Even a bad day at the ballpark beats the snot out of most other good days. I'll take my scorecard and pencil and beer and hot dog and rage at the dips and cheer at the highs, but I'm not ever going to stop loving this game and this team and nobody will ever take that away from me." Roy Tucker October 2010
This is where I feel OK with getting on this manager. This game is not too big for Hamilton...Dusty. I do not care what Hammerin Hank told you back in 1973.
I don't like it at all.
How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids
