    Sure, but I want him to be able to go 3 tomorrow if need be.

    Chapman not sharp today. Bases loaded. Out of 24 pitches, only 12 strikes. Marshall up.

    Well...I am looking dumber for saying what the big deal is. Is he not concentrating beacuse it is a 6 run lead? All of a sudden he cannot get these guys out? You would think he would be able to just finish it easily.

    And this one belongs to the Reds!!! He made it interesting, that's for sure. But I'll take it. Great game from Bruce, Cueto and the defense.
    2014 predictions:
    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

    Win tomorrow and finish the month the way we started it at .500
    "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."

    OTOH, maybe closing out the game, even with the big lead is good experience for him. It probably won't hurt tomorrow, I'd just save the big guns for when they are needed. IMO, Mop-up men are for when you have a 6 run lead. I'd have brought Lecure in in the 8th and let him finish and saved both Chpaman and Ondrusek.

    Eh, Chapman probably could have used the work, since there's an off day Monday, and he hadn't pitched since Wednesday.
    numbersinthereds.blogspot.com I actually made a post on 7/4/14. I promise.

    I like that.....but I do not think Baker trusts him to do that. But that is his problem. I also think Marshall needs work. Either way....I still did not have a problem with it, except for Chapman looking shaky.
