"Man, the pitch looks fast, even in slow motion." Thom Brennaman on Chapman's fastball.
"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."
Mr. 225 Ks with a man on first.
Ludwick up now.
Flies out, ninth inning, Dusty trails the Marlins by one.
It would totally shock me if the Reds came back and won this game. Either the Marlin pitching is world class or we've got problems that need to be fixed.
Somewhere David Bell is smiling.
Next time maybe he will smell the cafe and get him up earlier with the thought of going 2 in the middle. If he had done that...score might still be 4-3 with a chance for Marshall to get the save.
Offense is still limp though .... Marlins pitchers seem to having a field day using their off speed pitches
Unfortunately, Dusty never learns.
Arroyo is now off the hook.
Can the Reds win it and get Dusty off the hook as well?
