Old man comes trough. 8-5. Now we have tech difficulties and the sound is 5 seconds ahead.
Right now, I'd like to see the Reds score more runs and cause the Nats to use three more pitchers. I want some revenge.
Bruce flies out.
It worked both ways. But pitching to Votto meant three runs scored whereas likely only one would've scored on Rolen's blooper...
"This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
Scott Rolen, upset by the barbs on RedsZone about his age, steals second base.
"No matter how good you are, you're going to lose one-third of your games. No matter how bad you are you're going to win one-third of your games. It's the other third that makes the difference." ~Tommy Lasorda
There was a Nicholas Cage movie where he could see only about five minutes into the future. He should have become a baseball manager.
Finally a save situation
Sean Marshall is closing this one out, or is supposed to. He wasn't too effective last time out. Let's hope he does this quickly and easily.
Allows a lead off single. Oy.
"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."
Doesn't look like he is today either
Single for Werth. Tying run up with no outs. DeRosa.
Somebody is trying to kill me.
