    It seriously is like a video game.

    "I think I'll make him really tall. Pitching power, set that to 100. Mound presence, 100. Oh, oh, make him a Cuban defector for dramatic flair..."
    2014 Reds record: 1-2

    I look like a banker in this...

    Now with a 2.5 game lead, they must continue to play well while the Cardinals are floundering. Great game by Leake.

    We're good again, and I have a good feeling about Latos tomorrow.
    "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."

    I saw two innings of Santana's no-hitter and then I saw Chapman's ninth inning performance.

    Fairly good pitching, I would say. Not too shabby.

    101 on Fox radar, on last pitch. Rolling eyes from Stro's batters after whiffing, helpless look.

    Only problem is that it's on a slow-ball. It's the Anti-Chapman. :O)

    Reds scored 4 runs tonight thanks to Bruce's HR, but runs remain precious to this team. There is no reason why our 1&2 hitters should be there at the top of the lineup. Hitting .232 & .228, they stifle run production. I hope help is on the way.

    I said before he came in that he could give up a run just to get it over with, but dang, that wasn't happening tonight.

    Might I suggest it's so fast, it appears so slow? I mean, afterall, he strikes out three batters on what seems to be only one very slow pitch? Now that's fast! I'm sure a physicist could explain it. Probably has to do with anti-matter or something. Or a radioactive spider.
