    If the Reds reacted the way this board does the season would have ended after Atlanta. Halladay had it going tonight and I'm not ashamed they got no hit. I'm sorry I'm not going to freak out yet.

    Hey, TR. I wasn't questioning Dusty, so get off your high horse.

    Only positive to come out of it: this Reds team responds to crap situations better than any team I've followed. Blow big leads? No worries. Get swept by the Cardinals after running your mouths? Not a problem.

    They'll lose this series, but it won't be because they go into some tailspin after being no-hit.
    Posts like this are non-sensical. Anyone who watches baseball regularly, should understand that there is ALWAYS a chance. For example, even tonioght the Reds had at least a 40% chance of winning going in. Win on friday and we are back to square one.
    Tonight hurt, but its still just one game out of 5.

    I have been looking forward to facing Oswalt each time we have so far this year

    What's non-sensical? Of course the Reds, theoretically, have a shot -- but the Phillies are simply a better ballclub. I expected Philly would win this series, I still expect Philly to win this series, but I don't expect the Reds will just roll over and die because they got no hit. I expect the Reds to come out and make a game of it on Friday.

    Yes. I wouldn't be surprised to see Volquez traded for an outfielder. I don't think the Reds brass have faith in Heisey and the guys in the minors aren't ready yet. Nix is probably a goner and Gomes probably should be. I think they think they are set a short with Cabrera (who they will re-sign) and Janish. Bailey could also go, but they won't trade both. Cueto stays regardless at least for awhile. But, probably none of this will happen.

    Non sensical is making fact based posts around opinions.
    The Phillies are the better team.
    That doesn't always count in a 5 game series.

    The Reds were swept by the Phillies in this same ballpark right before the all-star break, and everybody expected the wheels to come flying off. They didn't.

    Friday will be do-or-die. If the Reds don't show up Friday, Philly will clinch no later than Tuesday when Halladay faces us again in Cincinnati.
    The difference between what happened then and what happened tonight, is that they dropped 4 games in one, and 3 in another, and then turned it around. Try that now, and we can start talking about Spring Training. I see this as a little more than adversity, this was history. Nobody listen to Colin Cowherd tommorow.....or anytime he's ever right for a while, this is gonna rehash on his show for a long time.

    Well, unless they plan on going with a 7 man rotation next year, something will happen. Really none of their current starters are bullpen arms, so that's out. They could keep Chapman in the pen but I don't think they gave him $30 to not give him a chance to be a dominant starter.

    My guess is that two of Bailey, Volquez and Arroyo are gone.If nothing else they could always pick up Bronson's option, trade him and send the $2 million along and get back a better return than just letting him walk with $2 million.

    I don't think the season is over, but it doesn't make what just happend any less crappy.

    Gomes needs to stay out of LF too. Start Nix in game 2 and Heisey in game 3.

    Dude, Gomes is the starting LF. Give it a rest, man. Just cope with it. We're in game No. 164 now and people are still complaining about him starting.

    It is way too early to write off Volquez. While watching the Twins' Liriano pitch against the Yankees, I'm reminded he had his TJ surgery in November of 2006 and is finally back to pre-surgery form. Outside of Josh Johnson, I can't think of a pitcher who has come back as quickly as Volquez and been immediately successful.

    The man struck out 3 times on 9 pitches tonight. Literally anybody could do that. Add in his defense and that's what you get.
