    Of course, if the Cubs don't have to bat in the bottom of the ninth -- and they probably won't -- that helps the Reds mightily in the pitch count fight. One could argue it's not really fair if the Reds' pitchers don't throw the ninth. But we'll take it.

    Home run, 4-1 Cubs.

    I will probably watch Sunday since my sharp stick is going to be in the shop.

    I've been shoving red hot needles under my fingernails.

    Thought I'd take a break and visit the game thread. Looks like the Reds are being the Reds....

    back to the needles....

    Man, what happened to Soto? He's only batting .222 and hasn't done much of anything all year. I think his ROY award should be revoked and given to Joey now.

    I would rather face the Cubs bullpen for 5 innings then 2 or 3 innings.

    Soto pulling a Joe Charboneau?

    Yes, the PTBNL in the Phillips deal.

    This Ab will determine whether the trade was a good one.

    Joey spits dirt on his batting slump again with another single.

    The Phillips trade is now officially a good one.

    Yes, in terms of the final score, absolutely.

    But to win the pitch count battle, I'm not so sure. That Harden throws a lot of pitches.

    With Harden pitching, odds were good it was going to be 4 innings for the bullpen. His leaving early just means one extra inning for them.

    Rolen hits a likely sac fly, but the runner doesn't come in from third. Nice cautious play.

    It may not have been hit deep enough. Is anyone watching the game so we can know for sure? Yahoo just says "S. Rolen flied out to center".
