    Not one batter even touched the ball in that inning. They were swinging when the ball was hitting the mitt.

    I know that was the Astros --- but that was not fair to any hitter
    The older I get - the better I was

    and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)

    I pray that he gets to face Josh Hamilton in the ASG.

    That would be baseball at it's very best

    If you catch Chapman trying for his fourth save in four days, then maybe you have a shot.
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!

    This. When he is on its automatic.

    This is all Dusty's fault!

    Actually, I have seen Billy Wagner do that a time or two. It was ridiculous.

    I was making a little joke. See when Giamatti busted Pete after he became commissioner he said he was "restoring Integrity" to the game, and a bunch of morons cheered him for that. Then when he smoked himself to death these same folks were ready to put him in the HOf. So when someone mentioned 1988 when Giamatti was NL president I said ..... ah forget it, you had to be there.
