    Stubbs warms it up with a 2-run shot.

    I'm all for trading Bailey, and this team needs BP arms badly, and an ace starter..Hernandez, Lecure, Arrendondo, Willis, Stubbs, Coco, all these guys should be on the block from here on out IMO.

    Apathetic. Is that a good word to sum up the Reds fan base currently? 7th inning of a one run game in early August and we have two pages on the game thread.
    This is the ol Left Hander rounding third and heading for home.

    Been that way for awhile. This teams is simply not fun to watch. The poor lineup construction coupled by fan favorites failing time after time makes people look away. The thoughts of a Volquez, Wood, Bailey, Cueto, and Leake rotation (with only one of them showing up well) is a bummer. The fact that the league has decided to not let Joey Votto beat them because the guy behind him is an easier out (and Dusty's inexplainable habit of getting the first man on, bunting him over so they can walk Votto) just infuriates me. Jay Bruce has had one good month and continues to hit in the low .200's since.

    It's a lot of things.

    On a rather quiet night, I'll just say thanks BigKlu for your historical insight you constantly give to the board.

    Cairo, for all he's done this year cannot play third base.

    Heisey may not have gotten a full audition in the outfield, but he certainly has had his opportunities. But unfortunately, if Sappelt wows us, Heisey may very well be the forgotten man.

    - just a thought that crept into my mind just now

    Two years ago we'd all be at least a little interested with the possibility of a winning season.This year not so much.Failed expectations can really deflate a fan base and the expectations this year was much higher then just a winning season.
