2012 Reds record: 5-2
I look like a banker in this...
Anyone who thinks that Baker is not a slave to the save rule, just watch this game. No reason to bring in Marshall. Chapman we dealing, and was still in the game. Worked out, but don't like that one bit.

With as well as Chapman has been throwing, do you eventually start to leave him in those situations, esp if you are trying to stretch him out for the 2nd half of the season as a starter?

"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."
Nice to see we're not the only team that has idiot ABs. This place would melt down if Phillips ended a Reds rally like that

Btw....Dusty Baker's 1500'th win.
Pitching and defense...anything else is gravy. Mmmm...gravy.
