    I didn't see the ITP HR, but reading the POVs has been interesting.

    Colvin didn't want to waste the energy needed for an inside the park homer and decided to just hit over the wall instead.

    The worst part was Alonso's reaction after he hit the wall, trying to chase the ball down. He showed how incredibly unathletic he is. He looked like a drunken clown.

    His "reaction" was him bouncing off of the wall. Go back and watch the play. He is a big guy and he was moving pretty quickly. Bounced off the wall pretty good.

    I've seen it five times. I stand by drunken clown comment.

    Wow, I just watched it too; it was at least awkward and non-graceful.

    Castro still scores in my mind. Wouldn't matter because Ramirez's double would bring both in.

    He ran into a brickwall at nearly full speed while looking down and trying to pick up a moving ball and then turned and chased the ball. Doing that is going to make many people look a "drunken clown."

    In other news, Leake "helps his own cause" by singling in Alonso. Frazier scores on a WP and after 4 full the Reds are within one at 3-2.

    Game is still being played. It just went to the 7th. Still 3-2 cubs. Leake escaped the 6th after there were runners on 2,3 with no outs. He is at 108 pitches so if he goes out for the 7th, Baker should be fired on the spot.

    I hate Campana. Hate him.
    "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."

    Jay Bruce really isn't very good. By far the most depressing revelation for me this year.
