    If Willy can get on three times this inning, we have a chance!

    I'd question the integrity of the game at this point but it hasn't been factor since the first.

    The only good thing I can say about tonight is that Werth is on my fantasy team and since we were all ready losing very badly at the time, I'll gladly take the extra points from his Grand Slam, LOL

    (((Reds))) Rough night though.

    I can't blame the coach, don't know what he is telling Bruce, who is working with Bruce, whatever. He is a very young hitter, maybe they don't want to give him too much to think about just yet.

    I just think the problem is fairly evident and is clear from any examination of his numbers. It's not just a general failure to hit. It's a fly ball tendency, without enough homers to justify all the flies, and a low LD rate.

    He makes good contact, this should be fixable and eventually I'd guess it will be fixed.

    Are the Reds going to face Bastardo in this series?

    I love that name....only a fellow Italian can get away with having that kind of last name.

    Be prepared to see highlights of this beating run over and over again on ESPN. Probably the only way you get to see Reds highlights is when they take an epic beating like this.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    All I can think of Fabrizio in Titanic every time I hear that name.

    Boy, I tell you, go out to dinner with my mother and look what happens. God, in His infinite mercy and grace, spared me seeing or hearing but five minutes of this merciless beating. I guess the rest of you need to repent : (kidding, kidding, I am not starting a religious discussion on the baseball board, although I'm sure the Lord's name was taken in vain at least 22 times tonight).

    We should make some sort of badge that everyone who watched the entire game can proudly display in their profile.

    Fix his swing like they kept trying with Dunn? I say approach him in the offseason with an arbitration buyout contract extension. Learn from our mistakes
