    The Reds *should* crush Moehler but ya never know. I predict two homeruns from Dunn tonight and one from Bruce.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    OBM is the eternal optimist.

    The Reds will be lucky to get 3 runs total tonight.

    Moehler will pitch his best game of the seaon tonight against this team which is in a horrible funk and without Encarnacion and Griffey.

    You were right. One run in 8 innings off Moehler. Wow.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    OBM, I can see when this team goes into one of these spells from a mile away. I'm not sure what's wrong, but when it goes bad, everyone goes bad. We taken Jay Bruce from a patient hitter to a first pitch hitter. Jeff Keppinger no longer is the guy "that always hits." Brandon Phillips hacks at everything that comes up there and makes tons of outs. Even Votto and Edwin just swing away without regard for making the best of their at-bats. Only Dunn and Griffey are hitting well now and one of them didn't play tonight.

    On the pitching front, you just knew that Bronson would have one of those games--he was due. Without a healthy Harang, we have three kids, the inconsistent Arroyo, and Josh Fogg as our starters. Volquez has not been himself and Cueto is learning on the job. It's a recipe for disaster. No hitting and no starting pitching = losses. Expect another tomorrow and by the time this road trip is over, the Reds will be back in last place. They'll fight back in August to probably fourth, but they'll have to fight both Houston and Pittsburgh for that, and both of these teams make our offense look like the 1962 Mets. It ain't pretty.

    That's the magic of Dustyball!

    Be agressive at the plate. A swinging bat is a dangerous bat!

    Is Griffey sitting due to the Grifffey-Brantley feud?

    Dunn again hits a bomb that is gone in GABP but is only a warning track flyout in this park.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Dusty never learns. There is no justification for Corey Patterson-Baker to hit leadoff.

    1-2-3 first inning by Arroyo. He took a line drive off the leg that caromed to Phillips for an out. He looks to be OK.
    I miss Adam Dunn.
