"You only have to bat a thousand in two things; flying and heart transplants. Everything else you can go 4-for-5."

"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."

"Man, the pitch looks fast, even in slow motion." Thom Brennaman on Chapman's fastball.
Arroyo gets his former catcher Ross to foul out.
1-2-3 inning for Bronson.

It is really not fun watching Ryan Ludwick in a Reds uniform.
Frazier flies out.
Hanigan hit it a ton, but not far enough.
Prado singles with two outs.
Freeman falls behind 0-2. Ball one, where was that, ump?
Ground out ends inning.

Reds owe Bronson some runs. They were shut out Friday night when he last pitched.
