    Bruce is 0-for-2 but has seen 18 pitches in two atbats. I like that.

    crazy inning. Votto doubles, and then nothing.

    Like OBM said, maybe it's for the best.

    Does Grande actually live in StL or was that just speculation?

    Javy Valentin has a .743 OPS and plays awful defense. There is absolutely no reason he should be brought back in 2009.

    I think a lot of the Jocketty interview was simply the polite 'jock talk'.

    I don't think that Walt is going to tip his hand with people like Welsh and Grand.

    As for the 6% that voted for Patterson it just proves that there are always people that like to fly in the face of reality.

    It was 0% for CP....if it was possible it would have been Less Than Zero.

    Who are the morons who put Javy at 10%??....or even Lincoln.....a 1 year stopgap who you got lucky with..... He was a lesser version of the 1992 Scott bankhead.

    Jeff Keppinger. Wow. Another error on Kepp. Should have been the third out, now it extends the inning for Miles who singles.

    Wellemeyer singles to score a run. How many runs has Jeff Keppinger cost this team just in the last three games? I can count at least six.

    5-0 Cardinals after four innings. Keppinger cost Harang two runs and about 12 additional pitches. Seriously, Keppinger is easily the worst shortstop I have ever seen.

    I feel sorry for this pitching staff. It's gotta be frustrating to constantly have misplays and errors behind ya. Jocketty has GOT to improve the defense in the offseason.

    Harang hits for himself down 5-0 in the 5th.

    I don't get it.

    Reds get the two runs back that Keppinger gave away. 5-2 Cardinals after 4 1/2.

    6-2 Cardinals after five. I would pull Harang now and end his season. I think the offseason is going to do him a lot of good.
