    Too close to call. It might have gone over the corner of the bag, but then again maybe not.
    From my vantage it looked fair but I'll defer to the ump with much closer call.

    Since Cigrani was warming up and Matheus came in, you ever get the feeling that Price just doesn't like Tony?

    Woo Hoo! we got to three pages on the game thread with only three of us paying attention and one of us is at the ballpark. We're setting a new record of slothdom and indifference. Colbert is good tonight too. That is all.

    I've liked Colbert since he showed up as a "correspondent" on the daily show, and I'm glad that he's got a good show tonight. Having said that, he/his people need to step on the gas: that first week imho was brutal. The Biden interview felt like a review of a funeral. While it seemed genuine, it sure wasn't funny or entertaining to me. And I don't dislike Biden and can empathize w/ his loss, but it was just too heavy for me.

    God Bless The Hopper. Never fear, he will ruin a decent comeback with his nauseating perpetual motion on the mound. 5-2 Giants

    Votto singled
    Phillips hit by a pitch
    Frazier walked
    Bases loaded down 5-2

    Bets on how we don't score? I say we score two. Of course no one's here so carry on...

    Typical. Cabrerra ground ball double play and it's 5-3 with Suarez up. Maybe we'll only get one. Yep. Suarez pops out to Byrdman. ho hum

    Commercial time. Gotta wonder how stupid those people on the Chevy commercials to think that they're in a BMW. I mean, have they never been in a BMW. BMW should sue.

    Were there actually takers for Bruce at the deadline?

    After a base hit by Skippy, a ground out off the pitcher's leg and A French Guy base hit, it's first and third, one out and Brucie up. I am not confident. 1-5 hitter against this pitcher.

    Bruce strikes out for the fourth time, throw out at second with Hamilton trying to steal. Holy crap. Bryan Price challenges the out at second. Hamilton is safe, but I'm tired of Bruce's tired act.

    Votto up. Intentional walk with Phillips up. Chickens, but smart. Good manager in Bochy.

    Phillips goes to 2-0. 2-1 with a taken strike. Ground ball to short and the game is over.

    Crap

    My understanding is the Mets backed out when they looked at his record of slumps and inconsistency. He is the biggest disappointment I've ever seen in 50+ years as a Reds fan. He has no concept of pitches and the strike zone. I am very disappointed in what I thought was going to be a world class player.

    I tried to get to four pages in what has to be one of the slowest and shortest game s\threads in the history of RedsZone. We didn't make it and I expect the same for the rest of the season. It's sad that this franchise has come to this. I blame everyone involved at the management level and the front office.
