    all of Volquez's first pitches are nowhere close.
    "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."

    Little concerned with EV flying open in the 1st....lots of those pitches coming in high and outside.

    This is what he was doing in August.

    Howard flies out to left. 1-0 Phillies after 1.

    Could have been a lot worse. Just shows that you can't let them swipe extra bases.

    Gomes caught that in the palm of his hand...not the webbing.

    Well great. Now Bruce's homer this inning will only tie it.

    Yessir, that is definitely the case. It looks like he's trying to overthrow. Hopefully it's just the jitters and he'll calm down in the second inning.

    Haha, glad I'm not the only one who saw that. Could have EASILY popped out.

    Just made a bad pitch on Victorino. Should have came in with some hard stuff.

    Re: NLDS Game 1: Cincinnati @ Philadelphia

    I was a little irritated that Volquez didn't turn and fire that ball to second just prior to the swipe of third. Cabrera had clearly snuck in behind him...you've got to at least try to keep him close.

    Saw that too. He didn't exactly take a great track to the ball either.
    Sabermetrics is this: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Forget the rain. It's never an official game until the Reds piss away a run between third base and home plate. - Bluegrass Redleg

    I can't say the double was lucky. You have to hand it to the Phils for getting that hit.

    Definitely should have thrown to 2nd. Victorino was basically begging to be put back on the bag.
