    Oh, I agree completely. He's had some VERY bad luck this season in terms of lucky hits, poor defense, etc. But that sort of thing drags you down mentally and that's what I was referring to. I saw the same sort of thing with Harang in the first half of the season...and Aaron has responded differently than Bronson. Sure, part of it is probably due to the injury...but I haven't seen any anger, fire or desire from Aaron (not that it surprises me)...but when you struggle that badly, you'd kind of like to see some sort of emotion. Bronson has just fought through it and really pushed himself. I find it even nicer to see from a vet. It's pretty easy for a veteran to pack it in once the season is basically lost.

    Simple. Louisville is still rockin' in the playoffs. 19-3 win yesterday. Yes, that read NINETEEN. :O) Once their season is done, I think we'll see some changes. Until then...we bide our time.

    Just a guess: Any of the pitchers from Louisville who could conceivably take his place on the roster are in the Louisville playoffs. I certainly hope he will be released after we can bring up the September callups.

    I posted this in chat, but why am I so tormented by the Reds that even with an 8 run lead, I'm fealing like we are going to screw this up?
    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    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

    Bruce smokes a double. Great night for him: 2-for-3 with a double, grand slam, walk, and 4 RBI.

    And A.Phillips, Cabrera, Valentine & Weathers. I can't see any of them having a future with this club.

    Jolbert Cabrera pops out on a 3-0 pitch. Why in the world is Jolbert Cabrera swinging on 3-0?

    I'm resigned to the fact that Dusty will manage next year - if foe no other reason - the money he's owed. I would find a "pitching czar though and turn the staff over to him. The first thing I would do is hand him a bat with orders to club Dusty like a baby seal if he so much as says Hi to anyone on the staff.

    I missed the first pitch but FSN showed the count as 3-0. That's what I get for trusting FSN.
