    Can't squeeze with the lefty hitter. Too easy to get the runner with an outside pitch.

    Now a pitching change, Venters probably hurt after the Votto liner.

    Another lefty, this O'Flaherty guy, pretty hard to hit.

    If Reds won't pinch hit Leake, my first choice, then pinch hit Wilson Valdez who will definitely get down the squeeze bunt.

    Absolutely right. I wasn't thinking about that.

    damn
    "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."

    Bruce needs a game or two off. He's killing us right now

    These lefty relievers on the Braves are very tough on lefty batters. Bruce is 0-8 lifetime against the two guys, with six strikeouts. Very tough matchup.

    Hold em and hope to get some hitters up in the 10th because with A pinch hitter, Frazier and Hanigan up, I do not see a rally.
