    even the announcers are making fun of the Reds

    It's not that the Reds are abysmal--and they are--it's that they are just unbelievably boring. Horrible at-bat after horrible at-bat by sub-replacement level player, lazy defense, and the odd 3-run bomb by the opponent. Basically the games run together. It's just not any fun to watch.

    Harang actually looks really good tonight. Too bad he served up that meatball and can't get any runs.
    "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."

    Why the hell do you let Janish hit there?

    And anybody who wants Paul Janish as this teams SS really needs to have their head examined. He just refused to walk.

    'an underwater swing'

    that's the best definition I've heard of Janish's swing so far. Someone tell Jacoby to throw him a life preserver, please.

    Why on earth did Janish not have a take at 2-0?

    Because it was a ball?

    A perfect example of terrible plate discipline under Jacoby/ Dusty's eye. At some point you have to quit questioning every players common sense, and start asking what the organization teaches and tolerates.

    Did anyone hear CW's beyond belief comment about why he thinks Hanigan is not batting higher in the lineup?

    How good must that Kool-Aid really be?

    That's why we're paying Busty all that money.

    This is beyond sickening, listening to the Cubs fans on TV, it's just ridiculous.

    I hope Bob C is watching.

    This is disgusting. This franchise has become a joke.

    He should have had a take, end of story. The pitcher's spot is up next; you're going to pinch hit, his best chance to get on is with a W.
