    If I remember right, Marty said that Mercker 'had not pitched well since coming back'.

    Someone needs to pull Narron aside and tell him that LaRue sucks!

    Is it funny that our defensive catcher David Ross is actually providing some of the better offensive numbers so far this year? I am not ready to give up yet on LaRue as maybe it might take him awhile to come back from the surgery and get healthy, but should Ross get more time?

    Ross is showing me he is a better hitter and a better caller of a game behind the plate.. time to get LaRue and package him with nothr player and make a trade to help the bullpen..

    Battling all day to keep it close and then having the bullpen ice it by giving up runs late is really starting to get old. Very few pitchers in the bullpen can be trusted. Stormy is solid at time, not a closer by any stretch. Coffey has been excellent. Merker needs to regain form or else him, White, and Shackelford will continue to put the game out of reach for the reds late. How long will Hammond's success last? White needs to be DFA ASAP. I don't care who is brought up. We have to have something down in AAA that's servicable right?

    Just as an aside here...a curiosity, I guess...

    On the ESPN recap of the game the Freel hit in the top of the ninth is listed as a homer in the 'scoring summary' on the box score page and also shows as a homer on the Scoreboard header page under the line score. Is someone trying to tell us that they agree with the obvious on this one?

    (As if it makes much difference, of course)

    Actually they're 13th (out of 16). Marty's wrong again!

    Could they possibly have changed it after the game? Not that it would make any difference, but I guess it would in the stat columns (for Freel and # of HRs given up by the pitcher).

    I doubt they'd do that though; I don't ever remember hearing anything like that happening in the past.

    LaRue slumps are deep and ugly. His hot streaks usually make you forget about the slump, then he levels out. But that is also when he is getting regular swings.

    I don't recall it happening either, TB. I doubt that they will do that this far after the fact.
