"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
The Axis of veteran know how.
Looks like about a 30 minute delay to the start time of the game...for now, assuming the forecast is correct about the rain cell being out about 7:10-7:15 or so.
Baseball will be played tonight in Cincinnati!....or at least the perception of baseball

Conine has 13 at bats against Morris for his career while Hatteberg only has 7. It's frustrating to see a manager make a decision based upon so little data. This is flat out incompetent reasoning IMHO.
That sentiment gets echoed with his decisions concerning Freel and Hamilton. That was based upon 31 Ab with RISP for Freel this season and only 40 such AB for Hamilton this year. What's worse Pete used batting average as a criteria.
WOW is all I have to say.....
"This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
Tarp in the process of being removed, I believe...now they have to put all the lines, bases, batters boxes...etc. on the field

For Love of the Game

Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman. Damn glad to meet ya.
The Reds manager could open up his mouth and gold coins could pour out and someone would say,
Banana phones in back to back night....can we handle it?
Dunner should call in
Is this the third game in a row that EE is not starting?
"Sometimes, it's not the sexiest moves that put you over the top," Krivsky said. "It's a series of transactions that help you get there."
I just got home from work - I have my television, remotes, laptop, cell phone, iPod, and dinner in immediate proximity. I'm hoping to not get up for at least two hours.
