    Re: 4/27/10 Reds deep in the heart of Texas (Astros)

    Phillips makes a jumping catch on a soft liner to end the inning. EXCELLENT outing by Harang. Get him out with good solid results. The one thing Aaron needs is his confidence back. His stuff is still there. In fact his fastball had more velocity on it than I've seen in quite some time. Regularly around 93-94 and hitting 95 on occasion.

    I agree. But Hanigan is still a MUCH better defender and has a MUCH better arm. Toss in his plate discipline and he's a much better bet to be a contributor all season long.

    On a different subject...Votto looks really confused at the dish right now.

    Is this the 1st time the Reds have had a starter give up 2 or less, going 6 innings, and have at least a 3 run lead? me thinks so, sadly.

    Asked for his opinion on Aaron Harang, Javier Valentien said "bullpen or whatever"
    "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."

    Bruce with a moonshot to Kepp at 2nd. First time he failed to reach base tonight.

    Dusty pulls Aaron after he makes sure Matsui is announced as a PH'er. Nice job Dusty & Aaron.

    Herrera coming in.

    Gervacio in. This guy just cracks me up. That sudden turn and stare into the batters box. Classic. :O)

    Did the Astros get this guy out of a mental institution?

    Yep. Everytime I've seen him, he's all over the place. But sometimes I wish runners wouldn't get on against him. That stare at the ball and the quick turn is just hilarious.

    Reds players were mocking it in the dugout too. :O)
