    I dunno if I see the extra-base hits happening so much at home but maybe in some of the bigger parks westward.

    Count me in that group, I thought he was about to cross over to dominating. His 08 was puzzling. Doesn't look like it has resolved itself.

    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.

    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.

    Harang generally has no particular struggles against lefties.

    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.

    As I recall though, Adam LaRoche kills him.
    "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?
