    I'll agree that he didn't break his wrist, but that bat did go all the way through the plate though.

    "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."

    As far as I know they still haven't really set up the rules regarding a checked swing. I think it's just the ump's opinion on it. You'd think there would be an actual set rule for it. If there IS one, anybody know it?

    Not unless they added it this off-season. Umpire opinion is all that counts.

    I know "intent to swing" is one. So if you are avoiding an inside pitch and you get turned around, it isn't a swing. Other than that, it's up to the ump. Welsh even had an ump on tech talk last year, and the ump had NO GOOD EXPLANATION. It was actually kind of embarrasing I thought. He was just like, (paraphrasing) "well if it looks like you swing, then you did."

    Welsh kept digging for an answer, but the ump acted like he didn't understand what Welsh wanted him to say.

    Great outing by Homer. 0 walks is really all I cared about, because there should be no walks on a day like today. Let them hit it, he did. The D made the outs happen (most of the time).
