    Wind blowing out? I guessing that won't be the final score.

    This offense is just bad.....without Votto and Bruce producing. I was hopeful with the emergence of Mes, Frazier and BH but statistics 101 is catching up with this team.

    Puig has three triples tonight. And a double. That's pretty rare.

    Marlon Byrd, 20th HR, 60th RBI. My oh my how we missed out last season Walt. Reds fandom could be sitting on a WS ring and another one on the way.

    You are entitled to your take, but I really don't believe Marlon Byrd was some sort of magic elixir to the Reds winning the World Series last year. Better production in LF certainly would have helped, and obviously waiting on Ludwick's return didn't work out, but ultimately better production anywhere near the likes we are getting this year from the catcher and third base positions would have gone a much longer way for the 2013 Reds.

    And I'm not sure why he would lead to "another one on the way". He was a free agent and so if the Reds did sign him and he was on this Reds team since April, they would be better but not some sort of powerhouse given everything else that has gone on this year.
    "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."

    But wouldn't it have been nice to know?

    drama again between the rays and red sox (ortiz)... ortiz hit a 3 run homer, flipped his bat and needed 30 seconds to round the bases (I think that is sprinting for him )

    archer wasn´t happy

    "I don't know what makes him think that he can showboat the way he does, and then nobody retaliates," Archer said. "Nobody looks at him in a funny way or pitches him inside. I don't know why he feels like that, but obviously he feels the way [teammate] David [Price] said he does -- he feels like he's bigger than the game. He feels like the show is all about him."
    ortiz response (short version)
    "He's not the right guy to be saying that, I don't think," Ortiz said.
    perhaps ortiz had this action in his mind

    if you act like this, you shouldn´t judge someone else for showboating

    Considering what Ortiz has done in the postseason in his career, he can showboat all he wants.

    Tampa just dropped a 4 spot on Milwaukee in the 8th -- 5 -1 Tampa -- top of 9
    The older I get - the better I was

    and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)

    Wow! Says a lot for the pitching....Taveras hits a HR in his first AB as the new regular RFer. Cards leading the Pads 6-2, trying to avoid the sweep.

    Cubs up 5-1 against the Dodgers. Dan Haren was taken out in the top of the 5th. He's not going to be part of that rotation for very much longer.
