    I didn't get to see the game today and only got to listen to a part of it, but what a disappointment. Up 3-1 in the 7th and leave the bases loaded? An error early on leads to a run (as they always seem to do with the Reds) and that's what beat us?

    The team is playing better, but the flaws stick out. This should have been a sweep were it not for the error and some real shoddy pitching by Weathers. I might remind Dusty that there was no reason to leave Weathers in there to get his brains beat out. The reason he didn't use Bray is that he's not dependable if used too much. He pitched the last two days, so he was out. Same with Burton. All that was left was Weathers (who is supposed to have a rubber arm and he proved it today) and the kids. The kids will rot on the bench before he'll put them in a pressure situation.

    Coulda, shoulda, woulda.

    Low expections + playing out the string = meh.

    We stole a couple from the Brewers and now they returned the favor. The worst thing about this one, for me is not tagging CC for the loss.

    In the end, the "Meat Loaf" philosophy for this series is fine with me.

    Weathers wasn't used three days in a row. That's why he pitched, I would assume, he didn't pitch in game one.

    Agreed.

    Weathers has that front-door, two-seamer that can freeze LHB. I didn't see the 8th inning, but it sounds like that K pitch wasn't working for Stormy today

    Hindsight is 20/20, but giving Votto the day off and playing Phillips/Rosales at 1b/2b would've made sense...unless Dusty wanted Votto to get some ABs versus a tough LH like CC? (re: learning curve for Joey, not "playoff integrity")
    Never overlook the obvious
