    Nice catch by Stubbs.

    0-3 and coming off major surgery, pitching for an offensive juggernaut.

    He's not exactly Justin Verlander.

    Clevenger seems like a guy who knows his limitations.

    Campana pinch hits and singles to center. 1st and 2nd.

    Stubbs might touch every ball this inning.....

    He pulls up and plays it on the bounce a lot IMO. I'm not sold on UZR, but Stubbs grades out below average defensively in spite of being good at everything out there. If he'd turn some of those into outs...

    I wonder if Ondrusek can dunk.

    "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."

    Reds beat a guy with a full trophy case? Belittle their accomplishment.

    Reds get 9 baserunners, strand 7, and hit rockets that are outs? Cy Maholm.

    I am frustrated too, but I think that you need to at least acknowledge that this team isn't the beginning of Major League (the movie) level bad.

    Watching Stubbs and you just think, he's a good defender. But watching him play defense often you think, "I thought he was going to get that"...

    I never thought that when watching Cameron and have never thought that watching FG.... Scouts may love Stubbs but I think UZR truly understands Stubbs.

    Meh. I'd risk a triple every now and then to record several more outs. I think he'd catch most of them if he just took one more step.
