    What happened to having too many outs at the bottom of the order? Patterson, Bako, and Fogg. I'm guessing Walt stopped listening to that crap?

    Truth is, none of these three players should be with the club in any way shape or form. Two are Dusty proteges and the other the work of one Wayne Krivsky, who actually thought Fogg would be a decent fifth starter (even though he had three fifth starters on the team already). Three automatic outs on a team that is offensively challenged anyway. Against Oswalt.

    For those who like pitching and defense, this game will the nightmare that can only happen when your offense puts you out of games like this before they begin. I can't wait.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    Hey, Fogg is no hitting the Astro's, and we're beating Oswalt.

    Josh Fogg vs Roy Oswalt. Sounds like a Reds win to me. Seriously. I'm calling a Reds win vs Oswalt tonight. If I'm wrong then Redszone can give me a wedgie.

    Sigh. Running in to outs is bad, especially at home. Still looked like he may have been in under the tag.
    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.

    What simply stupid (or over aggressive) base running.

    And good ol' EE strolling in from home.

    There goes the no-no. Only lasted an inning.

    I think he's just going for the complete game shutout.

    Fogg should have retired while he still had the perfect game going.
