    LOL.

    The end. Once again, the game is essentially over in the 1st inning.

    I think a mercy killing is in order for this team.

    Nice "effort" by Taveras.

    5 batters in, Cubs have hit for the cycle. 4 of the 5 hits should hae been outs.

    - Missed play at 3B by EE turns in to a leadoff double.
    - Bunt advances runner to 3B. 1 out.
    - Willy T pulls up short on a tweener to short right center and the ball shoots through for a triple. 1-1.
    - HR. 3-1.
    - Grounder up the middle - Hairston takes three steps before throwing and the runner beats it out.

    Ugly, ugly defense. Cueto isn't locating well but he's getting no help whatsoever.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Willy Taveras has to go. Simple as that.

    Whatever happened to Mario Soto, working with these guys?

    Quite frankly at this point you have to wonder what exactly Dick Pole does with the title of pitching coach. 4 out the 5 starters are having considerable mechanical issues. Time to make some changes.

    I'm currently in my homestate of New Jersey and for once I'm thrilled to not be able to watch the Reds.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    Thom Brennamen thinks it is likely that the Reds will score at least three runs today!

    Thom thinks it's likely that Tim Tebow will father his children.

    He has to marry him first because Tim Tebow is a virgin, or something.

    That counts as EEE's daily brainfart. It's still early, so we might see another one or two today.

    Today is EEE's 1,096th game as a pro third baseman. Played 611 games at 3B in the minors and today is his 485th game at 3B as a major league third sacker, er, I mean third slacker with the Reds. 9 yrs in pro ball, his 8th yr in the Reds' organization. And he STILL looks like a clown at
    3B. It's really inexcusable that he has been allowed to play 3B this long. Should of been converted to an outfielder or 1B years ago. He couldn't play
    3B for any other team in the big leagues.

    Will Dusty blame Dickerson for Taveras-Baker jogging after the ball that got behind him???
