    It probably wouldn't be that much better.

    Micah allowed to pitch to 100. Nice job Dust. 6-0 Scutaro homers

    Dickerson plays that very poorly.
    Hairston should have made the play on Barajas.

    Pffft, nothing clicking tonight. All we need is a pickoff and we'll have the grand slam of putrid baseball.

    The Reds prove once again tonight they can make any lefty look great -- even very marginal pitchers like this guy the Jays threw out there tonight.

    The problem I have with Dusty is that "he is" a great player manager. In the effect that he knows how to handle personalities. He has strong loyalties to his players and tries to put them into situations where they can excel. The problem with this is that he does it to a fault. Just like an actual player, he is immature in his desire to see his players perform well. This sort of tendency leads to poor lineup construction, leaving pitchers into long, and putting players in bad situations where they might have a chance to excel but the statistics say they will fail. The players love him because he makes the same decisions that they would make if they were manager. However, what the Reds or any team needs is a steady dose of logic and to know their limitations. For instance tonight, everyone knows that Micah Owings is a better option at the plate then Rosales and Tavares but yet they are allowed to hit and Micah is not. This sort of blind loyalty will keep the Reds from .500 this year. (Amongst other things of course)

    Seriously, Blue Jays management must have had a hard time containing their happiness when the schedule came out and they knew they'd have 3 gimmes at home vs. the Reds.

    Hernandez walks. Bases juiced. Lefty coming in to face Bruce. Let's see if he can do what he couldn't do on Saturday. Get the runner in from 3rd. Just put the ball in play against a lefty.

    Here's the problem:

    Bruce is facing a lefty. 1 out
    Rosales facing anyone. 2 out
