    Hopper better be bunting every time he's up. I just don't understand these managers we get saddled with. Apparently they have no concept of OBP. Oh well.

    Really surprised Griffey's in the lineup.

    Just a thought...surely we can find a catcher who can hit .250 somewhere. Ross is at .203 and has only 53 hits this year. More of that HR philosophy, I guess. And batting EdE sixth is silly. He's bee smacking the ball.

    Never mind...

    Part of the blame has to go to the GM. There just aren't any good top-of-the-order options on this club.

    You just can't stop Jeff Keppinger, Baseball Extraordinare.
    "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."

    Based on this I wonder if they even end up playing this game.

    My guess is this game will not be played today. Both teams have a day off on the 27th of this month right before opening another three game set at PNC Park. If I had to bet, that three game set becomes a four game set.

    Arroyo could probably use a rain out to rest his arm.

    It'll be at least an hour and a half before it would even start, but could be called before that....so I'm told


    We shall see...

    I'd like the rain to take this lineup into the sewer

    Is a Reds vs. Pirates rainout the same as a tree falling in the forest with no one around?

    Will the rain affect the planned 8th inning fireworks spectacular?
