    I'm not even going to call CP's PA's at bats anymore.

    That's an insult to actual at bats.

    Of the entire bullpen, Majewski is the one pitcher who I cannot figure out what anyone sees in him. Sinkerball pitcher, for sure, but he gets hit hard and gives up the long ball.

    Now, Maj wants to help out in the infield and screws up a ground ball out. Oh boy.

    Andy Phillips, pinch-hitting for Majewski, leads off the bottom of the fifth with his first homer.

    Dickerson gets called out on the same pitch that was a ball on Ankiel in the second inning.

    Has anybody considered the possibility that its a lack of confidence? Its not like he's had a hot streak or anything this season. He's been pretty hittable ALL season. Before AND after that SD game (so don't point to that). And I refuse to believe it's Dusty either. He's just struggled. After getting snakebit in several game at the start of the season it starts to get into your psyche...I think it's all mental right now. Only thing to do is to work through it. If it was an injury...he wouldn't be back. I don't think either Harang, Dusty or the trainers are that stupid.

    Fogg in to pitch. Interesting. I wonder if Walt is planning on calling someone up to take his rotation spot.

    It may be that today is his throwing day, and since he didn't go very long in Pittsburgh on Wednesday, he is available for an inning or two tonight.

    Last inning, Andy Phillips led off with a homer.

    This inning, Brandon Phillips led off with a homer.

    I used to coach a kid named Corey Phillips--maybe the Reds should sign him and let him lead off next inning!

    Can't understand why this is even debated. Shut the man down, he's clearly not right.
