    And some places that don't have a baseball field.

    BTW, I like the Astros' announcers. They aren't smart enough to count higher than the number of stars on the Astros unis, but they're like two drunk guys who are just out to have a good time. Invoking the name of Kal Daniels pretty much at random was pretty funny.

    Astros announcers: "Corey Patterson should not be leading off"

    They're smart enough.

    Meh. I give no points for that. Understanding that Patterson shouldn't be leading off is akin to knowing that you don't put your hand on a hot stove burner. Some folks understand intuitively, some learn by experience, and some who don't learn get hired to be our favorite team's manager.

    In short, it's an incredibly low bar.

    1 run in 5 innings against Brian freaking Moehler... This Reds ship is really sinking now... I've already jumped off....

    Goodness. Arroyo retired the first two hitters in the 5th with ease and then allowed a single, single, HBP and grand slam to Lee.

    6-1 Astros.

    The REDS first run scored without a home run since the 9th inning last Friday. 29 innings... pathetic.
    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    No one's going to trade for Arroyo now. Yippee. Two more years of this.

    They weren't going to anyways because the Reds pulled him off the market.
