    There's another 400 foot out to CF.
    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.

    According to Astros' announcers, Jolbert Cabrera is the reason the Reds can afford to carry three catchers.

    In other (real) news, Twins DFA Adam Everett.

    Yeah, I hate this park.

    I'm cheering for Corey to break futility records this year. The next time Dusty makes a suggestion on a player, the GM just has to say, "remember what you said Corey Patterson would bring to the team."

    Two out solo homerun by Tejada makes it 2-1 Astros in the third.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Re: Reds vs Astros 7/29/08

    I'm so confused. The Astros announcers keep talking about Dunn like he's a very good player who would be an asset to any team. Don't they know he hates baseball and strikes out a lot?
