    Of course, it's pretty easy to throw a bunch of strikes when you don't have to be worried that the hitters will make you pay for it....
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Have to agree. Don't see it with no outs, a 3-0 lead, and Brandon, Votto, Rolen to follow.

    Infield single from Votto to third...LaRoche's throw was wide. 1st & 2nd with 1 down for Rolen.

    They've come awfully close. It's hard to complain though. 5 inning starts are just not helpful no matter how effective you are, so it's good to see Cueto being aggressive.

    Rolen draws the walk to pack the bases. 1 down with Bruce up.

    Pirates were 1-28 throwing out runners prior to that.

    I'm loving everything about this game tonight.
    "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."
