    You seemed to imply it was dumb to swing 3-0, so we may have misinterpreted your meaning.

    But batters ofter get their pitch and ground out. Baseball is hard.

    Hanigan the Manigan with the gun!
    "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."

    Great throw by Hanigan.

    Reds better be ready with the pen, Cueto throwing a lot of pitches now. 2-1 after two and a half.

    What's that rule? Never make the first or third out at third?

    Cueto gets out of trouble cheaply enough. 2-1 Reds, mid 3

    honestly, it was just bad luck. We all have seen when a pitcher is down 3-0 he grooves one right down the middle because the batter usually is taking.

    Reds have left 5 runners on base in 2 innings......time to get some home.

    look for Reynolds...he should be rested...I don't want to see him pitch, but he could pitch tonight.

    Harang has walked 3 in 2 innings, so of course, Bruce and Frazier are hacking away.

    With a guy struggling to throw strikes, Bruce and Hanny swing at the 1 pitch....I just don't get it.

    Reds lead Mets 2-1 after three. Pirates lead Cubs 1-0 in the first. Nats batting in first inning at Cards.
