    I'd rather have Paul Janish on the bench than Valdez.

    I know people get tired of the SS-bats-second-dude joke, but, it works because it is true.

    Votto flies out to center. 3-0 Pirates mid 3rd.

    Terrible.
    "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."

    It's bad enough the Reds insist on carrying no-hit reserve SSs pn the roster, but sticking them in the two-hole when they do play is beyond explanation.

    That was just awful.

    A little complacency here. Given a winning streak the feeling is "we can play whomever and line 'em up however and still win". Doesn't work like that.

    Valdez is the epitome of the ol' Chico Ruiz quote. "Bench me or trade me."

    Updated:

    Valdez 8-43 (.186)
    Harris 3-35 (.086)
    Cairo 4-29 (.138)
    Costanzo 1-12 (.083)

    That's a .134 average in 119 AB's. A simply pitiful bench.

    Another year, another misguided soul wearing #15 for the Reds.

    Arroyo continues to get pounded today. Alvarez doubles to right. They can't afford to give up more runs against McDonald
