    And yet shoddy defense cost the Reds some runs yet again. Hmmm.

    Good point. Those two runs turned out to be difference in the game.

    Mike Lincoln is another one that needs to be gone at the end of the season. He's been terrible lately.
    The defense is becoming less and less an excuse for this pitching staff. Keppinger's the only true sore thumb on the infield. Everyone else is passable or good.

    The defense will continue to be the excuse apparently until there's a Gold Glove at every position.

    If you say so.

    You think the bullpen (outside of Burton) has pitched well this season?

    Considering they have been ranked near the top three most of the season I'd say they've been doing something right. I certainly don't want to see this same bunch back next season because I don't see guys like Lincoln or Weathers repeating.

    They're not in the top three of anything without Burton. And if a bullpen can't pick up the loss of even its most important piece (even a little bit), then it's not a good bullpen and was destined to fall apart to a great extent in the first place (especially after Harang went down and it had to throw more innings and get exposed).
