    Overpowering stuff helps. Chapman running it up there at 99 with a 91 slider doesn't let Jonathan Lucroy foul off 10 straight pitches. When you throw a 77 mph slurve, guys can hang in there a little better. Speed matters.

    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    When your closer has an ERA over 5.00, he's a disappointment.

    That time to pull Marshall makes zero sense unless Marshall told him he just didnt have it today. Turning around Izturis is very odd choice.

    ERA for a pitcher who has thrown how many innings isn't a fair way to judge a pitcher...
