    Great games by Bailey and Stubbs.

    14 K's by the Reds all told.

    A sweep to boot.

    These last 11 games have been the best Reds games for over 2 months.

    It's been a long season, but this stretch has been FUN to watch/listen to.

    Nice outing by Homer despite the 2 gopher balls. Another nice game by Stubbs & Phillips.

    Now let's give this pen a FULL day off. :O)

    Good four game sweep for the Reds. With a lengthy road trip coming up I hope the Reds can continue there winning ways. I would imagine over the next few games we will begin to see if Drew Stubbs is the real deal. It's easy to put up numbers at GABP, can he do it on the road.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    I have enjoyed this stretch like no other the past few years. It is very gratifying to see these guys put it together. Is this squad the answer for our future? Of course not. But there are some nice pieces to the puzzle in place if the FO will do some heavy duty lifting this winter.

    I believe there were a lot of us that thought the only interesting thing about the rest of the season was how the AAA guys respond to being in the majors. And here we are watching them WIN. I really didn't think this team would be 13 games under .500 again this year.

    The Reds are 2nd to last in RS, so I'd say the whole team begs to differ. Seriously, the HRs have not been cheapy GAB fence scrapers or plunking them into the RF bullpen like Manny and Furcal did Saturday.

    Most enjoyable game thread in ages. Even old sarcastic me didn't get negative or sarcastic. In fact, these last 11 games have been wonderful. Getting rid of the dead weight really helped t his club. No more Hairstons and no more Taverases (at least for now) and the kids have made a difference.

    Re: 9/2/09 - Reds vs Pirates

    While obviously it's great to see a 4 game sweep, lets keep this in perspective....IT'S THE MORE MISERABLE THEN US PIRATES!

    And while I've seen some positives over these last few weeks..... solid performances by Bailey, guys like Janish and Stubbs, and overall better play by this team, here is what concerns me.....

    This FO, and manager, will use these "positive" signs as an excuse to say we're heading in the right direction for next season, no big shake-ups needed, or as Dusty put it... "We're close".

    Since the beginning of August, this team is 6-11 vs teams with above .500 records.

    And going into this Pirate series we were 5-5 against sub .500 teams. So this sweep takes that to a 9-5 record.

    But over the next 17 days, 14 of our 17 games are against teams with above .500 records. Lets see how they fare.

    But this current winning kinds worries me to a degree.

    Same here. And what's to stop the FO from bringing us Pattersron, Taveras, and Hairston type players again? I have a feeling Teh Dusty will still be pressuring for those type of players. Speed, Dude.

    We watched them take a career year that a player could never ever hope to duplicate and parlay it into a 2 year deal. Walt's too smart for that. That had to be Dusty all the way.
