    I think the FO is well aware but it is tough to make significant upgrades in early June. Not many teams looking to deal.

    Agreed, but good execution by Ryan Hanigan.

    I don't know folks, I'm not a fan of the bunt there. Hanigan gets on base frequently, do you give him up there? Dubious.

    Let's hope it works.

    IMO, not a horrendous call in this situation. Hanigan is a big DP candidate, and against a righty, isn't a complete OBP machine. In a 1 run game, him moving the runner over isn't a complete comprimise of the value of his at-bat.

    Terrible decision to give up Hanigan there. Big hole on the right side is one he can hit with frequency.

    No, not horrendous - I just hate the sacrifice for regular hitters unless its a really lousy hitter. But it DOES avoid the DP

    Isn't the pitcher's spot up? Not Constanzo, no! Oh, forgot, he's sent down.

    Frazier!
    "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."

    Frazier rips a double down the left field line. He roped that one.

    Tomlin has set down the Cards foir 6 innings on 65 poitches, leading 4-0.

    Tomlin had a 5+ ERA coming into the game, and the Cards have as good an offense in the league.

    What are those fans saying?
