    5-5 mid 3... rediculous!

    Good point by Thom. It seems like the Reds have totally dominated this game yet it's a 5-5 game thanks to one guy.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Blanco grounds out to 1st. 5-5 mid 3rd. Fogg is leading off so hopefully that is it.

    Overall, the news is still good, IMO. We KNEW Fogg would get rocked and I had this one penicled in as a loss before it started. But we've given up 5 runs through 3 innings and we aren't even losing! This is still a winnable game. Braves fans are the ones that should be upset right now.

    I hope not, he is good in the pen. Keep him there. Bring up Maloney for a start or two.

    Remember when people thought we had a surplus of starters?



    But seriously LH Elizardo's can stick. The problem is when you get a RH Elizardo.

    They can always use Harang and Volquez where the long man should be pitching. They've done it before.

    Do you leave Fogg in to take a beating in order to save the rest of the staff?

    In a 5-0 game? Maybe.
    In a 5-5 game? No.

    I actually agree with that (non) move. You started him, so you live with him. See if you can get you to the 6th within earshot of winning the game.
