    I know we are a bad team, but losing to this team is reallllllllly bad.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Well Dunn's parents are watching tonight since George is broadcasting, and they're probably getting as used to this "playing out the string" time of year as we have for what seems like eternity now.

    Maybe Bronson found a Match.com local date tonight and wanted to get out of the park early.

    If a 120 pitch outing can do this to Arroyo 100% of the time, then that flat out sucks. Front of the rotation guys sometimes have to go a little further. Especially with the bullpen from hell.

    With Harang missing a few starts, it just might get real ugly over the next few weeks, even playing a weak part of the schedule. Of course, a last place GM who stands pat at this juncture, expecting he's only a few minor adjustments away... pretty much deserves to witness this type of spectacle. I think the new manager smell has officially worn off, and I actually like Pete Mac's personality.

    Only two grand slams away from taking the lead.

    I'd have to say the Nats are the better team. Better record in a much tougher division.

    To use the most horrible cliche of the moment, it is what it is....

    The problem isn't as much that it happens to him as it is that the Reds apparently don't know it and keeping CAUSING it to happen by allowing him to throw that many.

    I mean he basically needs to be pulled at 100 or so pitches, doesn't matter how well he's going, or how big the lead is. Pull him. Simple math.

    Which is why the "Arroyo" rumors swirled. Though I bet the Reds asked for Hanson and Jones included with Escobar and Reyes which caused them to blink. It will be interesting if Arroyo is dealt in the Augest wavier period.

    Yeppers. Of course, much of this was noted upon the aquisition of Bronson but he fooled many of us (including me and Wayne) with last years performance. (shrug)

    Of course, where Wayne and I differ is giving him an extention but that's water under the brige....

    The good part of this is that the Reds are making a run at the #1 draft pick....

    Wandy Rodriguez and Braden Looper are doing their best to unseat Arroyo as pitching disaster of the night.

    Boy, I saw Arroyo vs. Lannan for tonight's matchup and I was feeling pretty confident.

    Let me guess, Bronson couldn't find his locations tonight?

    Stormy, is Harang nursing something?
