    8
    2 out
    Soriano up

    BTW, back in the 8th, Stubbs was double-switched in, with Heisey going to LF and Gomes exiting.

    Pen should be fresh regardless, Wood/Bray/Smith only ones to pitch today.

    Just what the team needed.

    OK. Different beliefs I guess. I think an inning saved today is more in the tank for October. I want these guys not only available but not gassed when the play-offs role around. Not really worrried about saving Fisher and Bray for St. Louis. I don't think they should have brought in Rhodes or anything. But if Fisher goes a couple today and they need the pen a lot tomorrow they have guys ready in AAA who may be better than a couple on the roster now anyway.

    Momentum


    We has it.
    "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."
