    The way Bailey is throwing? No thank you. Back to back CG shutouts...much better than a rain shortened game. :O)

    Just incredible efficiency.

    In either event, it would mean no bullpen for 3 straight calendar days (with an off day coming).

    That's the most important thing!

    Nice string of scoreless innings from Reds pitching.

    Someone finally got through to this pitching staff about how much easier it can be to pitch if you just throw strikes, trust your stuff, and let your defense do some work. If it was Bryan Price (which would make sense), can we keep him for a VERY long time?!

    Bruce K's looking on a pitch that was low.

    There are maybe 20, 25 people in the stands.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    I wonder what the splits are for Drew Stubbs in the leadoff slot and OUT of the leadoff slot. I'd guess they're pretty striking.
