    Wow. That was helpful. Clearly ball four that Barmes just hacked away at.

    That was by far the worst I've seen Jose look all season. To get out of that mess unscathed is a Houdini and a half.

    But that deal never happened. Everybody says the D-Backs will deal Parra except for the D-backs who play him almost every day.

    Bruce, Rolen, and Ludwick are slated to come up in the top of the 9th against Hannahan.

    That Miller Lite "punch top" commercial is marketing gold. Makes me want to drink anything but Miller Lite.

    I know. I don't think he can recognize them. That said, he has put up respectable production the last few years.

    I don't see the fascination with him to be honest.

    Let's hope that's the lousy outing of May for Arredondo. Lots of drama, no runs.

    Bruce dinger? Even odds?

    Well that's in part due to Chris Young's injury. Before that he only started a handful of games.
    "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."

    Pirates pitching staff....underrated IMO. Some solid starter prospects on the way too.

    Pirates pitching and Astros hitting would be a dangerous combo.

    No, Astros hitting is a mirage. Big time.
