    I have a bad feeling about the Reds chances against Gonzalez today.
    "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."

    I agree. This ain't the NFL.

    Might as well let the opposing manager think that Phillips might be used.

    Time for Mat Latos to remind us all why the offered up so many players to get him.

    Latos and Espinosa in a battle. Have to be over 10 pitches.

    I'd be curious if there's ever a point where it becomes more efficient for a starting pticher to just walk a guy than give up a 10-15 pitch AB.

    One out isn't worth 10% of a pitcher's pitch count, especially an otherwise quality starter.

    I thought about that yesterday when Komatsu was running up pitch counts. Either walk him or just hit him.

    On a 3-2 count, if no one is on base, I'd probably instruct my pitcher to hit the guy with pitch #8.

    The Reds starting pitchers have me paranoid. Anytime the ball goes out of the infield I think it's going ot be a home run
