    You know, I was always impressed by Marshall when he was with the Cubs but I could never enjoy him simply because he was always wearing that godawful blue. Nice to be able to cheer for him now. He's been so impressive it's just mind-boggling.

    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    I had him on my fantasy league for a while few years back and he did well but for some reason Lou would not keep him in the rotation.

    Going to have to look for a better weather app. Mine said 91% chance of thunderstorms around 9 pm so I went to Keeneland today and came home instead of going on up to the game tonight.

    Man, I try not to dwell on this stuff but imagine how awesome it would have been if Madson were able to pitch in this bullpen?

    FWIW, Cincy is 1 game out of a wild card spot.

    Best win of the season, IMO.

    This was 2010 Reds -- get up off the mat and snatch a victory away in the late innings.

    Yep. Hats off to Bronson and company. This one could've gotten out of hand in the earlier innings, but he kept the offense within striking distance, and they delivered.

    Cue concern over no Cozart and q's re #1 and 2 in lineup.
    I know you don't want to completely change the lineup for a day off but come on there has to be a better solution than Valdez batting 2nd whenever Cozart isn't playing.

    He got the the Friday the 13th game in DC off. He did play in the extra innings though.

    Phillips leadoff, Stubbs 2nd.

    He left Edwin Jackson off that list. Jackson has not pitched well against everyone else.

    Good come from behind win. Arroyo did a good job a keeping the team in the game when it was obvious he didn't have his best stuff. That's what a starting pitcher is supposed to do. Great job by the bullpen too. Let's sweep the Giants and move to the bottom half of the division for the next three series. Time to clean up on the wins!

    True. Like I said, our offense has stunk it up without a doubt. But we've also run into some pitchers who were throwing VERY well at the time. It's made the offense look even worse than it probably was. That's all I was saying.

    I was at that game Jackson pitched. I thought he pitched a really good game. That's what Jackson is all about. One good game followed by a couple of subpar ones. Reds were unfortunate victims that day.
