See, we are not the laughing stock. The Cubs are the laughing stock.
"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."
"A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky, dangerous animals and you know it."

Sure it's been posted already, but really have to admire Bailey's toughness today. His perseverance kept the Reds in the game. Great to see him maturing.
"Man, the pitch looks fast, even in slow motion." Thom Brennaman on Chapman's fastball.
Bailey pitched well enough to win. A quality start, but that's not good enough for this present offensive team. Until this offense starts hitting and until our manager changes his ways, our staff will struggle. We went through this last year for awhile, too. I don't have to tell you what I think is the problem.
"You only have to bat a thousand in two things; flying and heart transplants. Everything else you can go 4-for-5."
When I got home I was shocked to see the Reds had won this game. Good come from behind win but the Cubs did give it away. A bunch of walks and a couple of terrible errors did them in more than anything. But the Reds will take it and move. Sorta makes up for that giveaway to the Giants last week.

...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.
This game yesterday was the end of Marmol being the Cubs closer.
