    This game is going to pot in a hurry. Three run HR by Crawford and its 5-1 Giants. Leake is getting lit up pretty good.

    Look on the bright side. I'm sure we'll get to see Sean Marshall continue rehabbing in major league games.

    Hoover is up, he's been used a lot lately, might want to give him a rest.

    Might also be a good game to let Mesoraco play some LF or 1B and to try four or five different guys at shortstop.

    Giants are mercifully out. 5-1 in the 4th.

    Thom talking about the Reds not getting many walks.

    Last 14 games Reds with a 3.3% walk rate. Lowest in major league baseball. Doesn't count today.

    Then LA for four games, Dodgers haven't played that well, I could see Reds winning some of those.

    Not sure I see the big winning streak coming up to close the deficit. Not in the near term. But you never know.
    I believe it was you that posted awhile ago that this was a tough stretch for the Reds. They look to get out if it around .500, probably a few games below. If they get Latos, Votto and Bruce back and producing, a big if, but if that happens, with an easier schedule coming up, and with the Cards not pulling away, there's still good reason for hope.

    Yet him and his Dad constantly rail against the one guy on the team who actually is capable of drawing walks.

    It's no great sin to be the last Norway rat off the Titanic.

    It's almost like doomsaying is your thing.
    "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."

    Yes. Reds have won some, it hasn't been that bad. Reds were fortunate that Brewers, Cards and Pirates have had their issues.

    After the home stand the Reds play at the Brewers and Pirates. Those series are away, but an opportunity for the Reds. Maybe Votto is back healthy by then.

    Then they come home for the Blue Jays. That one looked easier. Now not so much.

    Then at Cubs, Giants, Padres, on the road. That one could go either way, let's see how they are playing then.

    I thought Grandal would have blossomed by now. Who knows, maybe he still does.

    I'm willing to place a bet with you on the final record for this team.

    Nothing Cozart could do about that called third strike.

    And I would have let Leake hit for himself.
    Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman. Damn glad to meet ya.

    Hard enough to get hits for us, but when those 2 strikes 3's are called strikes, what can you do.
