    Every year the Reds carry some complete bushleague clown with no business in the big leagues, every year it's infuriating, every year people tell me not to complain because it's "only the 25th man", and every year "the 25th man" ends up getting dozens of critical at-bats and costs the club games.

    Just another rite of spring.

    Nice inside-out swing by Brandon on the first pitch gives the Reds the early lead. I think Phillips too often goes up trying to park the first pitch, he's a much more effective hitter when he uses the whole field.

    Oh, I don't think many disagree with ya this year. Between he and Gonzo we have 2 of thee worst offensive players in baseball in the field tonight, yet Rosales sits. JHJ should have been in LF with Rosales at 3B tonight. But I'm guessing this is McDonalds opportunity to prove he can play up here to Dusty. Too bad Dusty doesn't already know it.

    It doesn't help BTW that Bruce struck out on one of the worst K pitches I have ever seen. Terrible bat control there.

    Re: 5/20/09 - Reds vs Phillies

    1-2-3 1st for Harang K'd Ibanez

    Bottom 1st Taveras blooped one in between SS/CF/LF, Willy went to steal 2nd had it stole but JHJ simultaneously bounced out to 3rd. BP dbl down the 1st base line on the 1st pitch scoring Taveras, caused Moyer to Balk BP advances to 3rd. Bruce K'd, Ramon BB'd on 5 pitches, Gonzo flys out trying to pull an outside pitch.

    1-2 2nd K'd Werth then Victorino doubled into the LCF gap with 2 down. K'd Feliz for the 3rd out.

    Bottom 2nd D McD swings at a 2-0 pitch and grounds out to 3B. Hanigan goes 0-2 works it back to 2-2 and takes Moyer deep to LF 2-0 Reds. Harang K's, Taveras refuses to take more than one Ball pops out to Utley in short RF.

    Top 3rd Coste leads off with a Ground rule double in LCF gap. Moyer bunts him to 3rd. Harang K's Rollins with a high strike (4th K). Utley bounces out to 2B. This ump BTW Adrian Johnson I think his name is, is calling a nice game early on here.

    Nice comeback by Harang after the lead off double and sac bunt. 1 out man on third and he hold him. Nice.

    Thanks for holding up the quilt George and Chris, didn't want to miss the rest of those red/white squares. I have no idea what that was about.
