    Too bad Cozart is injured. It really would be even more intriguing to see all of them at once.

    Five starters began the season in the minors and one should have.

    Why aren't the Cubs playing their "kids:?

    The Cubs fans - the ones who actually pay attention, I mean - are apoplectic over this. You think some RedsZoners complain about youngsters not getting a fair shake...

    I'm glad I don't root for a team that's 21 games out of first in September, yet runs a 35-year-old and two 34-year-olds out there to play outfield every day.

    Stubbs getting the day off hurts his chance at reaching 200 Ks

    Good to see Dusty giving Janish some protection in the lineup.

    Long bomb by Francisco. 2 run HR for Phillps. Its tied.

    Sorry how this sounds, but I'm glad Willis is struggling. I don't want these idiots in the Reds "brain" trust to get any kind of an idea that he's an answer for 2012.

    Is that HR by Francisco the longest I have ever seen?

    It might be.

    20 feet over the top of the fence in right center field. Out of the ballpark. Maybe landed in the river- but Thom and JB are too busy celebrating Thom's birthday and talking to the CincinnatiUSA lady (who has a great voice) to tell us.

    Phillips HR was also in the 2nd top half of the upper deck in LF.

    Mercy.

    Francisco's blast went an estimated 502 feet, second in GABP history to Adama Dunn's 535 foot shot into the Ohio river in 2004.

    502 Feet for the Francisco bomb.
    Thom and Jeff were saying that a Dunn homer in 2004 is the longest at 535 feet.

    I remember that one. It was dead center.
