    Even with Aroldis the great pitching, I wouldn't give Troy T too much to hit.

    Keep it out of the zone, Aroldis.

    If he throws a slider, Tulo might screw himself into the ground.

    Sure do wish Aroldis had a change-up right here. Tulo wouldn't be expecting that at all.
    Sabermetrics can be boiled down to this simple truism: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Is it just me, or would a circle change do Chapman wonders?

    Thom just said that exactly.
    "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."

    Thom almost quoted me word for word. What's up with that?

    Tulo flies out to center. 7-5 to the bottom of 8.

    Throw the slider!
