    Dunn walks on four pitches, for the second time in three innings, Aurilia comes up with two on and two out.

    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    What happened to "drive the pitches you can hit"?

    Aurilia grounds out.

    Aurilia smokes the ball, but right at the second baseman, threat over.

    Still 0-0 after three innings.

    Yup, Womack drops a pop-up, runner on first.

    Then a flyout to right. One out, one on.

    Edit:

    Also, one run in for Toronto, but I missed how. Sorry. Kids all over the house today, mine and several neighborhood children.

    Edit II: Apparently, Hinske led off with a HR. 1-0 Toronto.

    I wish we didn't have guys on our team 1) that are so bad you hope they screw up so hands will be forced on making decisions 2) that our decision makers could be relied upon to make the decision before the damage is done

    Double, runner scores (altho Joe says an accurate relay from Aurilia would have gotten him), runner goes to third on the play at the plate.

    Still one out.

    2-0 Jays.

    Now, a pop-up, but because infield was in ball drops into shallow CF for a hit, run scores, 3-0 Jays.

    Re: 3/11---Blue Jays at Reds

    And Womack and Aurilia (now there's a DP combo for us) can't get to a pop up because of a drawn in infield. Please, make it stop.

    Ladies and gents, the (current) Reds' ace (due to Harang injury): Brandon Claussen. Can we just skip to next year, when Krivsky apparently will return Paradise to Redsland?

    Well, I am not souring on Claussen off of this. A K and a flyout end in the inning, and if Womack can field, I think it is only 1-0.

    At any rate, 3-0 heading to the Reds half of the fourth.

    Kearns grounds out to start 4th. Krivsky tries for a mid-game rule change that would allow EE and Dunn to do all the hitting, with everyone else doing the running.

    LaRue Ks on three pithces.

    Joe tries to change McCracken's first name to Louis or Luis, then makes him Quentin again.

    Well, if Claussen had a SS and 2B with more range than a tree stump then he would probably have a shutout or only one run given up. I fail to see how Womack's miscue was Claussen's fault.

    I'm merely pointing out that Claussen's ceiling is as a #3 pitcher. He's never been anything but and will never be anything more. Yet here he is, the best starter on the Reds now that Harang's shelved. So right now the Reds' rotation is a #3 and 4 sub-#5 pitchers.
