    Hopefully the bullpen can hold this lead so Ramirez can pick up his 1st major league win.

    Jay Bruce has really been killing the ball this month.

    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

    Classic quote from the Brewers TV annoucer, Re: Castillo.

    Castillo with a sweet drag bunt. Switch hitter, plays everywhere -- kid is a very nicely skilled player, if not a star.

    Great snag by Bill Hall. Turns it into a DP to boot. Nice.

    Re: reds vs brewers 9/9/08

    how about the catch from Castillo?

    And Dusty said he'd be lucky to get a start all month...

    We may have found our #5 starter.

    Don't know if it's occurred to anyone. This game has meaning in the NL race. The Cubs series, this series, the Arizona series upcoming, all have meaning.

    So the Reds are using some veterans. They're not experimenting with guys at uncertain positions. They are letting their starters go fairly deep into the games.

    If the Reds play some games against non contenders, I think we'll see more emphasis on the young guys. Even now, some are playing, tonight a number of them.

    Excellent diving catch by Castillo to end the 6th inning. Man this guy is playing well right now.

    How about Ramon Ramirez? Yet another great start by that kid. He struggled mightily with his fastball command early in the game but really settled down to throw a gem.

    6 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 4 BB, 4 K. The only hit came in the first inning.
