    Can't stand that greaseball.

    You know who I'm talking about.

    That game felt like a three hour toothache. Just gross.

    I hope. We have sunshine piching so I'm not holding my breath.
    there's nothing like bowling a 300 game! 13 now and retired.


    Ricky henderson has a higher OBP than C. patterson and he's retired. C. Trent 6-14-2008

    New winning streak starts tomorrow.

    How about two innings of Chapman tomorrow.

    Probable, but what if he hadn't stole second yet, he wasn't beating the throw to second on the double play. I just don't think it's a big deal there if he did or didn't use BHam.

    I agree there there's still work to do. But putting him on and letting him work his way around the bases WILL get in the pitchers head. That tiny bit of distraction is all a hitter needs sometimes. You also reduce the chance of a DP as we just saw.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    When his run means nothing, he's not getting in anyone's head.

    In fact, wasting Hamilton there is a big relief for the pitcher. He says, steal second, third and home. Has no effect, make my day.

    My opinion, you only bring him in there if you're down a run or it's a tie game. Anything else is really just a mind game, which could work. Oh well, that's not what Cost the Reds the ballgame. Defense killed us tonite!

    Bring Billy on as your silver bullet if he is the tying or winning run only.

    Some of the other guys are gonna have to do some legwork when down 2+, it's math.

    When you make the comment "no one but Billy could have scored there" it doesn't matter if he is the first of 2 runs needed to tie.

    Derrick Robinson isn't even a good AAA player. He should be sitting way way way down on the bench instead of starting. This team has better options.
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!

    Cards are 13-4 against them, even before tonight.

    Assuming I'm reading the darn chart correctly.

    Reds were 7-2 to begin the season against the Brewers. Then Braun and Ramirez got injured (Suspended as well for Braun), Axford was traded....and they got better for some reason against them.

    It is like 1999 all over again with that team.

    "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."
