    Terrible. Awful. Pathetic. Bad. Bad. Bad.

    I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that today's Reds game was the worst game yet of the year. Yes, a 9-8 loss is the worst loss yet. Not opening day, not Williams, but today's game.

    Why? This game was lost on mental errors..the only kind which are not okay. Physical errors, okay, but mental? Thats just poor baseball.

    Why the heck do we give Pujols pitches right down the middle...3 TIMES!?

    Why the heck does Quinton BUNT when he just hit a home run in his first at bat??

    Why can Arroyo hit HR's but not lay down a sac bunt??

    Why is Brandon Phillips in the major leagues??

    Why did we take out Ross..wasnt he like 2 for 4..to bring in old Javy?

    ..awful game today. awful.

    If losing by 1 at the defending divison champs is an awful game, I like our teams chances this year.

    and for the other side of the spectrum:

    Okay, maybe I was overreacting. The point is though, what mad me mad, is that we were so close, yet we gave it away. Fought so hard, then gave the game away on stupid mistakes.

    I don't care, just never pitch to Pujols again please.


    Can we call some crappy pitcher up for the sole purpose of beaming Pujols?

    I gained even more respect for Mr. Scott Rolen after again watching the highlights of the game on ESPN. After he hit his homerun he just simply dropped his head and ran around the bases. What a classy individual who never shows anyone up. I love watching that guy. Everytime a ball is hit his way you just know it's an automatic out.

    Pujols could learn a thing or two from Rolen. Pujols walks 10 feet down the line, throws his bat to the ground, and watches his homerun until it lands. As for the walkoff homerun, . Pujols hopped in the air as if he had just hit a walkoff homerun in game 7 of the World Series - reminded me of Joe Carter's celebration in 1993. And to top it off, as he was rounding third he started running like he was Forest Gump. Dude, you just won your seventh game of the regular season, not the World Series.

    It's too bad Reds' ownership wouldn't approve the added payroll to bring him to Cincinnati.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    Yep. Rolen has always been one of my favorites. He is the best defensive third sacker that I have ever seen play. It seems like he gets to every ball hit his way.

    IIRC, Rolen wanted to come to Cincinnati, but he wouldn't negotiate with the Reds until after the season.

    At least you haven't started calling for a boycott yet.

    Didn't Phillips hit the bad hard each time up but right at someone? Even his fly outs to left got out there in a hurry.

    Well except for his 1st at bat where he grounded out to Morris softly.

    Dude is having some bad luck right now.
