    The tag Edwin made on the wild pitch with the runner going to third just now is one of my pet peeves.

    He reached towards home plate to receive the ball, instead of positioning himself at the bag and waiting on the ball, not reaching, which makes his only move straight down with the ball once it gets there. It takes much more time to reach out to get the ball then come back with your arm for the tag.

    It's a subtle skill, but I can't believe how many times I see it ignored in the major leagues.

    Many things in baseball are better than ever. Nutrition, strength training, flexibility training..... many things. But some of the fundamentals that used to be a given on the major league level simply aren't as prevalent anymore.

    And get off my lawn.

    Board blip, apparently.

    Fogg gets out of the fourth inning after the Reds finish their half of the fourth with a strikeout/thrown-out double play.

    Patterson has just doubled with one out in the top of the fifth.

    Adam Rosales is wearing #60. Never the number of a game who is going to stick around for awhile.

    Bako whiffs on four pitches and up comes young Adam Rosales to pinch-hit for Fogg.

    Four innings, four hits, three earned runs, one walk, four strikeouts, two homers. His ERA plummets from 7.71 to 7.66.

    Rosales reaches on a throwing error by Theriot, putting men on the corners with two outs for Chris Dickerson.

    There was a ball hit to right center that he should've taken charge of and it fell between him and Bruce and subsequently rolled to the wall.

    Chris flies out to short right to end the fifth. Still 3-0 Cubs.

    On obvious single had been hit to right single. Bruce had already pulled back to let Corey field it...and Corey inexplicably pulled back, letting the ball bounce past him and the runner get second instead of just a single.

    I saw his defensive blunder, he nearly made a baserunning blunder too.

    On comes our favorite linebacker-sized middle reliever to face 8-9-1 in the bottom of the fifth.

    Phillips fielded that ball 2 steps to the SS side. Where was Keppinger?

    The incredibly-fleet Henry Blanco scrapes an infield hit.

    Masset grounds Zambrano into a 3-6 double play and strikes out Soriano swinging.

    3-0 Cubs, end 5th.
