    Well, you can go with Michael Morse; or you can go with Jason Bourgeois.

    The Reds did pick up Jim Edmonds once, late, but usually entrusted their bench to journeymen.

    The Pirates, also a smaller market team, have been willing to supplement the bench with players of better quality when they have a chance to win.

    Edmonds was not a legit pickup when the Reds acquired him. He could barely walk.

    A good example of a late-season pickup is Billy Doran by the '90 Reds.

    The Pirates of late are a better run organization than Cincinnati. That's the complaint from me.

    But speculating on a signing like Morse is a drop in the bucket when it comes to the real problem IMO.

    Not suggesting Reds would sign a Morse this season. Just noting the difference in philosophies when the teams have a chance to win.

    Braves lead 2-0 with Cards out in the top of the seventh.

    My wife was like: "Why are you still watching the Reds?" (Picture the most-beeotchy tone you could imagine.)

    I say: "I'm rooting for them to lose so they get a good draft pick."

    She was flummoxed.

    Not sure why Matheus is pitching now, throws a wild pitch, Bucs threatening. Could have used Hoover I guess, two outs in the seventh. Whatever.

    Good pitch by Mattheus to strike out the aforementioned Morse. On to the eighth.

    Great ballgame, LOL, with Reds still having a chance to win.

    Wow, run(s) didn't score. Maybe the Reds will win this one.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    Very soon the Rockies - Giants game will be underway.

    Just imagine the excitement of the sports world with the Reds, Braves, and Rockies competing for draft position all playing at the same time.
