    Don't agree. When you change history , you mess with the time-space continuum thingy. We don't know what would have happened later. Leake would have pitched differently most likely.

    I don't claim to be a baseball genius but some of this stuff is just so predictable. Major changes are needed on this club, major.

    Arredondo loads the bases with no outs. Bray in to pitch.

    Starting pitching is the only part that is working. Starters were the problem. Now the only successful area of the team.

    I don't know why Walt couldn't have at least gotten a good extra arm for the bullpen.

    Just you wait until the upcoming winter meetings fans. And if not then, look out for next year's trade deadline. We held onto all of our chips, Walt is sure to be a major player then. Of course, we may not be able to get a deal done to our liking, at which time I'd tell you to target the 2012 winter meetings....that'll be when teams are willing to trade because there are so many more in play than at the trade deadline. And if nothing happens, Walt can always fall back on the deadline on July 31, 2013 to help improve the team. Of course one of those things could be dealing Joey Votto if we're not in the race at that time. Which would then mean look out for the winter meetings in 2013, because Walt will be armed with lots of cash AND prospects, most of whom we're still holding onto.

    Keep the faith, changes are a coming.

    I question just what in the hell is going on in the Reds farm system; none of these guys can bunt.

    Maybe Alonso stepped on a butterfly.

    He never should have stuck his hand in that toaster.

    I think this team actually tries to lose 1 run games.

    I think my internet browser is broken. Everytime I refresh the screen to check the game, it always says "Stubbs struckout."
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    Lol.

    Chapman in to have a good half inning which will be wasted.

    Why does it seem like Dusty always brings in Chapman too late?
