    Second half of a double header, 9pm start, immediately coming off of a devastating loss at the hands of Drew Stubbs and Axelrod is pitching.

    This next game might get the lowest TV rating the Reds have had since 2009.

    Putting Chapman in, in the first place was crazy with a four-run lead in game one.

    Well hindsight is 20/20....but in retrospect I don't think that is the first time Chapman has loaded the bases with walks.

    Yeah....gave up a HR in 1/3 of an inning

    That figures to a good ERA doesn't it?

    How is that crazy? A lot of people used to complain about the inactivity that Chapman had last year because there was no save situations for days. Chapman has not been pitching that much and again...it is Coors field. 4 run lead in Coors fields is a 1-2 run lead everywhere else.

    We can't blame Hoover. Sucking is just living up to the family name for a Hoover.

    Pheripherals man! Is that how you spell it? I spell it Danny Graves. Or Tom Hume circa 1983-84.

    I think you are missing the sarcasm there.

    Can't remember when the Reds had a big comeback like that. Seems they are always on the other end and always get career days and walk-offs from their castoffs when they go against them. This was too predictable. Drew Stubbs vs. Hoover where a HR would win the game. Just too easy to predict.

    I'm thinking this this franchise is cursed and will never get over the top. Haven't advanced in the playoffs in 18 going on 19 seasons and when they did in '95 were swept in NLCS.

    I think the window is closed or will be after next year. With their luck everyone is finally healthy next year and they go out and win 97 games only to finish 2nd in their own division to lose in the 1-game WC. I mean, would that even be surprising? We've seen it. At some point I wonder if it's just a combination of bad luck and if there's just something in the water that makes these teams choke. Maybe they have caught the choke bug from the Bengals. A lot of choking going on between these two franchises. Heck I was at the last playoff win (to advance) for both. '95 vs Dodgers and '91 vs. Oilers.

    I'm thinking the window is closed. Great things don't seem to happen here anymore.

    It's been awhile but 3-4 years ago I honestly felt we would come back in almost every game...
