Disappointed Yonder Alonso isn't playing every single night. He needs the experience in left field playing nightly would provide. The only way to improve is experience. Would like to see Devin Mesoraco out there every night too.
Sappelt with a 1 out double. The bat is coming around. He's still my CF in 2012 with Stubbs dealt for pitching and Heisey as a fall back..

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
Janish continues to be a black hole in the lineup. I know defense is important, but we must score runs and Janish continues...well, what I said before.
Chat is open!
"Bring on Rod Stupid!"
Homer leaves with 2 out in the 8th, a 4-1 lead, and a runner on 1st. Nice outing.
Chapman coming in to face the lefty Seth Smith.
“This one was a perfect one. I don’t know if I can find a better one, better timing. He [Price] really said some great things there. It really encouraged us to go back and do what we do. … I didn’t know he could speak like that.” Brayan Pena 5/21/14
Yonder sighting. PH single in the 9th.
Phillips HBP. Two on, one out.
Sappelt grounds into double play. Rockies up against the wall, trailing the Reds 4-1 in the ninth.
Nelson grounds out to SS. One down for Cordero.
Yonder makes it look too easy at times now 25 for 60 batting .416 as a Red.
Great game by Homer--good pitching all around. Yonder once again begs for playing time by getting a hit in the 9th, but will not start tomorrow. Go figure.
Codero breaks the Domican save record, the Reds snap a 10-game losing streak in Colorado, and all is well for this night. A 16 post game thread says it all. The lights are on but nobody's home...
