    Re: Perfect Game Alert - TRAVIS WOOD v. Phils

    Congratulations to Travis. That was one heck of a gem he threw out there tonight. I don't get to watch many Reds games, but this was a beauty to see.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Easily. Not to mention control to both sides of the plate and mental toughness to spare. Does he remind anyone else of Mark Buehrle?

    He looks like the second coming of John Danks.

    We need to leave him in the rotation.

    Cueto
    Leake
    Arroyo
    Volquez
    Wood

    So let it be written, so let it be done.

    A healthy Bailey and a back-of-his-baseball card Harang would do wonders for the bullpen. I like that rotation.

    And with Harang/Bailey in the bullpen, you have long guys in case Leake needs to skip a start.

    Harang's in the last year of his deal, do whatever with him.

    Absolutely heart-wrenching to lose games like this in back-to-back nights. Totally different games, both heart-wrenching. Blow a 6-run lead in the freakin' 9th inning for the second time this year. Then the next night your rookie stud goes out there and almost throws a freakin' perfect game against the Phillies in their park and you don't even get the win.

    Time to drink some beers and try and forget about all of this nonsense. At least we will go into the AS break in sole possession of first place, but dammit this stings.

    Big props to Travis Wood though. Man are we just dripping with quality young pitching. And we haven't even seen Chapman with the big club yet. Also have Volquez waiting in the wings. And Bailey is still alive last time I checked.

    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    I'm giving Hanigan some serious credit here as well (for his receiving, not his un-clutchness w/ the bat)

    He can frame pitches much better than Razor.....and while CERA isn't the end-all, be-all of stats....it can't be overlooked. He's a very very good receiver.

    Don't forget about Thursday night. The Reds lost in walk-off fashion in the 12th then too. That's 3 straight back-breaking extra-inning losses for our boys. A win tomorrow might be needed for morale more than anything.

    It was an oppo-jinx, where by blatantly stating it, you actually nix the jinx.

    On a more serious note, you don't actually think that what someone writes on an internet message board effects how someone pitches, do you? I mean really.

    I'd rather listen to Kelch read the phone book than suffer through Thom Brennaman's attempt to make every instance on the field the most important event since the discovery of manned space flight. -westofyou

    Of course it has no effect, but still, you just don't do it. It's not illegal, it's frowned upon, like....(insert hangover line here).

    Baseball and superstition go hand-in-hand, kid
