    We're good again!
    "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."

    Very strong turnaround for Simon after a horrible first few outings.

    Simon has looked good working where Dusty has used him. Good to know that he can trust other people besides Logan, Chapman and Sean.

    Have to look at the Votto play at the plate last night. The correct call and we might have swept. Little things.

    Go back and look at the game logs. This isn't an accurate description of how he pitched. At this time, looks to me like a nice waiver wire pickup.

    He gave up back to back homers on his first two batters.....he has been great since.

    It's like he said...OK, so I really REALLY need to keep the ball down in here.

    He had that wild pitch in a game vs. the Nats and gave up the back to back dingers but other than that hes been very good. When he throws strikes hes tough. When hes wild things get ugly.

    Reds bullpen stats: They're ranked 4th overall
    6-4, 2.41ERA, 78.1IP, 56H, 21ER, 6HR, 37BB

    Excellent stats, But can you believe that the Texas Rangers bullpen has only given up 7 walks so far this season???? That's crazy

    That could be the worst use of a shift I've ever seen. Votto is NOT an extreme pull hitter. He promptly got an RBI single to left.
    Votto is an extreme pull hitter for ground balls. He hits FB's all over the place. The shift used against him is only in the infield.
