    If it comes down to it, I am in favor of carrying Cabrera over Castro. Just because.
    "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."

    Today is a big day for Homer. My bet (and hope) is he begins the year in Louisville but the the struggles of Belisle and Affeldt, Homer could put himself back in the rotation competition with a strong outing today followed by a couple more in the final two weeks.

    Ain't that the truth.

    Though I'm not sure either one will have a spot.

    One thing I really like about getting the mlb.tv audio is, I can switch back and forth to listen to what the Reds announcers say about Lester and what the Sox announcers say about Bailey.

    I love Brantley continuing to say how Bailey's curveball won't be a called strike in the majors, despite the fact that it is actually being called a strike all the time.

    It looks like the Sox have all their regulars in there except for Ellsbury.

    Yeah that Homer, he's all about those strikes.

    His curveball isn't a strike problem, its his other two pitches.

    Struck out Ortiz with a high fastball.

    Then he's got some even more serious problems than I thought.

    Actually, from the games I've watched I'd disagree. He may throw some strikes with that curveball, but when he does it's often up in the zone and he;s lucky he doesn;t get creamed on it.

    Bailey strikes out Ramirez on a breaking ball (by the sounds of Brantley describing it, it sounds more like his change up that had some drop to it).

    I really suggest charting the games then going back and looking at the final results because I believe your mind is telling you something that isn't accurate.
