    He gave Jay Bruce a wedgie, promptly following with louds calls of "n00b!"

    He did nothing. Its only speculation that he was upset and wasn't in the game. It all seems a little absurd to me. He wasn't on his game tonight... lets leave it at that. There is little reason to make up something that isn't there.

    Shackelford in for Livingston now. Bruce should be leading off the bottom of the 8th.

    Billings is down 2-0 in the 2nd. Frazier lined out his first AB. Waring coming up in the 2nd.

    Bruce struck out in the 8th. Brad Salmon in to pitch the top of the 9th.

    Well he can't say he wasn't given a chance. I don't wanna cut him or anything but obviously he needs to be back in AA. He was just overmatched in that at bat. If he ever makes it to the majors he'll be good, but not great. Kinda like Austin Kearns. We'll be ok though...

    E: DeJesus (9, fielding), Szymanski (9, fielding), Gutierrez, T 2 (3, fielding, missed catch), Valaika (2, fielding), Eymann 2 (9, fielding, throw).

    I hope this was sarcasm.....but if not, that's a bit of a strong assessment for one ab. He did homer tonight.

    Hopefully this isnt a Johnny Cueto thing where he gets called up due to emergency and then get sent back down. I don't know if Louisville put anyone on the DL or not.

    I think some people need to put away the "Psycho Analysis Book for Dummies". The real thing that needs to be observed here is the fact that a young pitcher was upset with himself for making some bad pitches, hence the perceived attitude. The kid still need some polishing but should it be under the guidance of Pole or Power. Who do you trust more, I would place my money on the man who has worked with Greg Maddux more than a converted reliever.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.
