    7/17- Reds vs. Rockies- "Volquez's 1st start back!"



    Cairo in for Rolen, batting order adjusted accordingly. Hope Rolen's back isn't gonna fail on us.

    I should be able to do PBP until 8.

    Is there a reason Cairo is in front of Bruce? I'm not being sarcastic, it's an honest question. Are they trying to keep Bruce in the 6-hole, thinking he's comfortable there, maybe?

    I'm guessing if that spot comes up with guys on base Dusty feels more comfortable with Cairo up there.

    Dusty probably feels Cairo is a better hitter tonight vs the the lefty opposed to Bruce. I do too, honestly. Tonight anyway.

    I don't mind the lineup at all. Rolen needs to be given as much rest as possible with his back problems and Cairo has been shockingly solid.

    Game is officially sold out tonight, they are now selling standing room only tickets... Gates are opening at 5:20 to accommodate the crowd.

    Step away from the ledge folks, Rolen is only ill, nothing with the back, although the extra rest is obviously a plus.

    I see that now. Actually it was in 2008 when Barry Larkin went in. Only happens in even years.

    I'm too young too remember Spuds, but that interview with Piecoro was pretty brutal

    Brutal? I didn't think so. I do think Sabo acts like he could care less...

    Hey Edinson:



    "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."
