    For every post of too much Burton...there would be 5 more with why Lincoln or Affeldt. This bullpen needs more reliable pitchers.

    So, would Kearns be considered a bust?

    -Dmitri singles
    -Kearns K's

    3-0 Reds after 7 1/2.

    Agree. The Reds need at least one more guy who is reliable in the eighth inning so it's not always Burton. Right now, there isn't anyone. Roenicke will hopefully be that guy.

    Don't worry. The Reds will get to showcase the entire bullpen tomorrow with Fogg getting the start.

    And see, I look at it the other way. Bray or Burton in the 7th, Hererra in the 8th then Cordero in the 9th. Hererra is the perfect foil to the hard throwers surrounding him. That change of pace would only make Cordero look that much nastier.

    Now if Cueto or Volquez were starting, I'd come straight in with Danny and then go to the cannons.

    Sigh. Small ball when you're up 3? CPat must go.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    What good is speed when you're a bad baserunner?

    Dunner with a lead off single.

    And Dusty does the dumb move again. Predictable. Patterson in to run for Dunn.

    I don't mind Patterson coming in to run...but it should be for Griffey...not Dunn.

    Kepp bunts into a DP. 0-17. Batting average dipped below .300 now.

    No kidding. He should sue Fat Toad for lost wages.
