    Interesting choice... So Valentine for the 7th, Wagner 8th, and Graves 9th. Who PHs leading off the bottom of the inning?

    For those of us that are 8+ hours away from Houston and the game is still blacked out, you really ought to see Valentine's pic on MLB's gamecast....scary

    Joe needs a quick inning.

    If it's quick, that means he's throwing strikes.

    If he's throwing strikes, the other team will probably be missing them.

    I like power arms.

    I'm guessing Cruz. Possibly Ears.

    I think the problem with Aaron Harnag is that he gets obsessed with "nibbling" at the corners or trying to make a perfect pitch and he has a tendency to fall behind hitters that he should be putting away.

    Case in point, earlier in the game when he had a couple batters down 0-2 and let them battle back to 3-2. It runs his pitch coutn high and limits him to, effectively, being a 5-6IP pitcher.

    If Harang wants to really take it up the next level, he needs to work on retiring batters in fewer pitches.

    Having said that, I'll take a quality start ANY day of the week.

    Harang's biggest problems are mistake pitches and not putting hitters away.

    Lane: called strike, strike 2, ball, flyout to Dunn, 1 out.

    Scott: ball, strike 1, ball 2, ball 3, ball 4.

    Chavez: foul, ball, RBI double.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    The Reds pitchers can make the worst hitters in baseball look good.

    Palmeiro pinch hits for Springer. Mercker replaces Valentine.
    I miss Adam Dunn.
