    OC should probably not say anything. He makes one play and the Reds were one swing away the rest of the game.

    Hindsight is 20/20, but can you imagine if Wood started? Might still be a scoreless game, in about the 12th inning or so.

    The disappearing sinker just wasn't fair. It was getting to the plate and just diving into the dirt.

    If I have learned anything about baseball in the last few years it is this:

    When you see major league hitters taking silly swings, making little contact, swinging at balls in the dirt, etc., the ball is moving late and fools the best hitters in the world pitch after pitch after pitch. That was Halladay tonight. There is nothing they can do about it. There is no more dominating position in sports than a pitcher with his best stuff. He starts each and every event.

    I was on board with Volquez in Game 1, but man, I was wrong.

    Volkie combusted and Wood looked great.

    I will just say this: Halladay's strike zone was more generous than Volquez' but I don't think it mattered.

    Could it be possible that losing to Halladay in this fashion is better than just losing to Halladay. We have all seen how this team bounces back from adversity time and time again...I think they just might bounce back in a big way against Oswalt and Co. Friday.

    It mattered in the terms of he may have pitched a 2 or 3 hitter instead of a no hitter, but in the outcome of the game it still would have been a shut out and Halladay was still just dominant. I love watching a guy just pound away at the strike zone.

    Volquez was not mentally ready to pitch that game. Good experience for him, going forward, but in no way did he look like a pitcher on a mission and that is what you have to be in the playoffs. Wood looked like a veteran and Volquez like a rookie. Hindsight always 20/20, but mental makeup in the post season plays a big part. Dusty should have learned something about his pitchers and their makeup tonight.

    I have to think that he did and hopefully we'll find out for sure if we get a game 4.

    I don't think Volquez has the makeup to ever be a big game pitcher.

    Wood will start game 4 if there is a game 4.

    There's no reason to believe they'll be one.

    Halladay was dominant. Great effort by him. Reds can still win game two and come back to Cincy with home field advantage.

    Yet to be seen, but he does have the "stuff." We'll see how he reacts next time he gets the call in a big game.

    He has awesome stuff. I'm just not sure about the stuff between his ears.

    I don't disagree with a word that Cabrera said (Volquez might have lasted longer than 1 2/3 innings if he was getting the calls Halladay was), it's just a matter of who is saying it. When you are a big reason the score was 4-0 instead of 1-0, you might want to keep quiet.

    Reminds me of the old "Leon" commercials for Budweiser.
