    Yea, they've done well responding to getting swept. But they won't have that luxury if it happens now.

    Once it got to about the 7th inning, I was pulling for the no-no. I didn't want a 1 hit break up, moral victory they could rest on. I want them to come out the next game pissed off and with something to prove, and really just smack Oswalt around.

    Your last paragraph pretty much contradicts your first one. If you really believe the first one, then being down 2-0 should be no worse than being down 1-0.

    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.

    To succeed in baseball, you have to have a short memory. I don't think it was embarrassing. Just tip your cap to a pitcher who threw a great game. A no hitter counts no more than any other loss. Go get 'em Friday. Just split in Philly.

    This kind of feels like the Bengals beginning to the 2005 playoffs. Well, at least in the same ballpark. Granted, our young franchise QB didn't just get taken out on his first pass of the post-season, but getting no-hit after a long playoffs absence sure is demoralizing. At least the culprit this time is a brilliant pitcher who deserves the laurels and not a dirty ex-teammate rolling over deliberately onto a guy's knee.

    Tonight was like October 4th, 1999. The Reds just had no shot right from the beginning. The big difference, though, is that no matter how well Halladay pitched he can't knock us out in one shot like Al Leiter did 11 years ago. Tonight was bad, but October 4th, 1999 is still the worst Reds game of my life.

    The Reds will either crawl in a hole and die, or they'll come out and rock Oswalt on Friday. Let's hope the latter happens. This team, this year, has shown an ability to step back up when they've needed to do so. We badly need Arroyo to pitch well, and the lineup needs to get back in a comfort zone at the plate.

    Halladay did have an enormous strike zone tonight. He was dominant, but it's nice to see a player come out and say it. OCab went up a notch in my book.
    This comment really bothers me. Just shut up, Orlando.

    Note to Orlando: you just got completely freaking demolished on the game's biggest stage. Own it. Don't be a Cardinal.

    Halladay was freaky good tonight, no matter what anyone says about the strike zone. If anything bothers me about this it's that I'm watching the best pitching money can buy, knowing my favorite club can't afford it.

    I'll also add this: I'd rather get no-hit than blow a six run lead in the 9th inning and lose.

    Sure, tip your hat to Halladay for a stunning performance.

    But how utterly disappointing and embarrassing it is for the Reds.
    I watched the game in a bar, no sound.

    I watched the game, in and out, down and down....

    A great game for baseball fans, the worst for a Reds fan.

    On a positive note, how about Wood, Ondrusek, Bray?

    It's one loss and that loss hurts. But if the Reds win Friday the series will be back to even. The Reds really can't afford to be down 2 games though.

    They pitched well. And when Game 4 happens, Travis Wood needs to be the starter.

    Cabrera needs to shut it. The first playoff game in 15 years for this organization, and you just got owned so bad it's only the second time in baseball history it's ever happened.

    Don't cry like a Cardinal.
