    Nice outing for Arroyo, for the most part...

    He's been great. I like the "loser" and "last place" comment when referring to Gonzo or Phillips not going out to the pitchers mound so they know what pitch is coming, too. Think like a team, act like a team.

    What do these managers see in Mike Stanton? I just want to know.

    Stanton comes in and walks the first 2 batters he faces.

    Stanton quickly returning to form....a dinger here would be the final step of that process...

    not PHing for Arroyo and then using him for only one more inning with a low pitch count makes little sense.

    Yes, the reds look like a last place team tonight. WV - I don't think any of the other teams see anything in Stanton. I have no idea on this earth why our front office decided to sign him. For one thing, he looks like a walking heart attack. our current manager is in better shape than him. Stanton is about to blow the game open for the Mets now.

    Double steal for the Mets.

    Stanton is just doing his part to try and get that #1 pick.

    Those who can read lips probably got a nice kick out of what Ross said when he saw the safe call at third base.

    Pitching change. Stanton tonight 17 pitches (6 strikes, 11 balls)

    Burton in to pitch.

    A decent tag and Beltran was out. Again, this team fails at that critical moment.

    I'm going to make the kind of statement that I usually abhor due to the sheer inability to back it up: this team has zero mental toughness. It's immature, mentally, which is not to say that the players don't try or that they don't know "how to play the game"; just that they're lacking a certain concentration and coherence and I have no idea how they can fix that.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.
