It's like FCB is trying to reverse jinx Harang with the irrational hate.
Harang throws a 1-2-3 second inning. 2-0 Reds.
I miss Adam Dunn.
Can we now put away that teddy bear called the "extra-inning stint" as an excuse for poor performance. As long as my "irrational hate" can eradicate that baby, I'm okay with looking stupid.
That said, it's the second inning, against the worst 5-8 in MLB.
"This isn’t stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner

Not to make light of a serious situation, albeit it one that seems to have turned out well, with the ship captain being rescued, Marty just mentioned the U.S. Navy defeated the Pirates. Now it's our turn.

"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
I'm not getting this on TV so I have a question about Harang. On cbs.gamecenter they showed every pitch that he threw in the 2nd inning under 85 mph, most of them slower.
Is that correct?
