    I'm happy that the Reds won today. I'm probably the only one here but I'm still happy, LOL

    I'm happy too. I am especially happy about Bailey's outing. He's going to need to take a leap forward hopefully today is a start.

    I agree and hopefully Homer builds on this start and uses what he learned for his upcoming ones.

    If Stubbs plays, he has to be in CF.

    He can field circles around Dickerson, and Dickerson ain't bad.

    Cordero has made the Reds the only team in the majors who have won every game they led after 8 innings.

    He's likely the last guy we need to complain about.

    And he has a very good WHIP this year.

    Wasn't complaining. Just saying it seems like a rare occasion when Cordero retires the side in order to earn a save. (he got two quick outs today then gave up a hit before getting out #3.)

    His Whip is 1.21 which is excellent. The odds are that every pitcher will give up a baserunner in an inning, which would equate to a .250 OBA.

    After the first two shaky innings, Homer pitched excellent, and against a hot-hitting Pirates team. He was actually the first major league pitcher the Pirates saw all weekend!

    Glad to hear Dickerson just rolled the ankle, did that myself once playing basketball, fell on my face stepping out of bed the next morning when I put weight on it.
