    Maybe the Dodgers are watching Aaron Harang today? Hopefully ...

    Harang has looked really good these last two starts. What ever he changed it's working well for him.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    I like this Aaron Harang.
    "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."

    Did you need to go and be all realistic on me?

    It seems to me this Harang is relying less on trying to overpower folks with his fastball, and instead keeping it down in the zone.

    His breaking ball is really crisp with a lot of bite on it too as well.

    Impossible. He pitched in relief in San Diego last year and returned after the rain delay earlier this year. No way he can pitch well.

    Some guys can be moved for salary relief and the Reds would be helped. Harang is better than that and shouldn't be traded unless there is a reasonable return. SF would be a great ballpark either for Arroyo or Harang.

    Velez sure can turn on that inside pitch.

    Harang in his first bit of trouble today. Need to look for a double play or a K here.

    Harang gets the ground ball dp but the Giants get a run out of the deal. Wlad gets Molina's pop up. 5-1 Reds.

    Velez really needs one in the earhole. He posed after his double. Thats 3 poses for him this series. Someone on this team should show some moxy and earhole him one.

    Good job minizing the damage. Not often we can gladly trade 1 run for 2 outs!

    That posing is definitely bush league. That's all fine and dandy in Babe Ruth and Legion ball. But you're in the majors now, son. Act like you've been there before (and as bad as you were, you have been).

    You can bet if BP was stylin and profiling on his HR he would have been drilled by Cain or Zito.

    Quick hook by the ump there to throw Gonzo out. He must have said one of Carlin's magic words.
