    I don't want crappy pitching like that in my pen either

    He wasn’t great but he showed enough to get another start. Unlucky in that Peralta allowed a couple runs to score. But lucky in the the Brewers ran themselves out of at least a couple runs with TOOTBLANs.

    Better than his last 2 starts but that’s a pretty low bar.

    You do know that we've won a number of games (some quite recently) where things did not go really crazy.

    Right. I was pretty cheery after the 3 game sweep of SF then this. But hey, I'm still with 'em which is more than most can say.

    In defense of BobSteve's line- one of the walks was intentional and the other two were on 3-2 counts. The walk to Shaw, Gameday shows the 3rd and 4th balls as strikes/right on the corner.

    They won 1 of 3 on the road vs. a superior team, which is statistically the most likely result. No reason to expect anything otherwise.

    I wouldn't watch if I expected the "statistically most likely" result 'cause that'd mean my team would get pummeled. I'm holding out hope that I'll see more of what we saw in June and July when the Reds did remarkably well vs "good" teams.

    The point is...we watch for fun and it's more fun when they win.

    Does it seem like the Reds always sleepwalk through these mid week afternoon games? I think its probably the product of a losing culture this franchise has now. It's a day game and get away day so lets run through this one as quick as we can.

    Stephenson just doesn't look like he is ever going to be productive. He allowed 12 runners on base in five plus innings. That's a recipe for disaster no matter how the runners on getting on base. I suppose he should start the rest of the season just to see if anything at all is there but if not then it should be bullpen, at best, next season. More than likely he will be a throw in for some trade in the off season. A change of scenery might do him some good anyway.
