    "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."

    I guess the Pirates purchased stock in the McCutchen family, LOL (Are they related at all?)

    Fay just posted that there's only about 76 people in the stands for the game right now. Yikes! I hope they get a few more people for game one. I know I'd much rather watch a double header between the Reds and Pirates than be at work on a Monday, LOL :

    Local disinterest in Reds on the last day of August + poor drawing power of Pirates + economy sucks too much to risk job by blowing off to watch baseball on Monday afternoon + stubborn decision by FO to schedule this as day/night DH in order to get 2 separate gates + a game tonight anyway = probably a historically small gate.

    This business decision will probably backfire on the Reds, as they most probably will not cover their overhead for playing a game at GABP, at least for this first game.

    Reminds me a game my college team played in Cooper Stadium in Columbus. We had around 100 friends and family in the stands, which held 15,000.

    A bit eery and cool at the same time.

    Cueto. A move needs to be made in between games to activate him.

    Jones pops out to Sutton at second.

    3 up, 3 down

    No score after half an inning
