    Yes, the 2 and 2 thirds innings of 13.50 ERA ball in May means a heck of a lot.

    Bray walking the first guy he faced does not surprise me.
    Is the strike zone smaller in the majors than the minors? He could have thrown strikes.

    "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."

    Rookie mistake. Strie 3 according to the only one that matters. Now Frazier or bust.

    Terrible, Reds. C'mon.

    Worst ump in the majors and it's not even close.

    Frazier flies out to center. Frustrating night so far. 5-4 Twins after 6.

    you have to score a run when you have the bases loaded and 1 out.

    One would think that pitching to minor leaguers in a meaningless game is less stressful than pitching to major league hitters with the bases loaded in his first appearance since the DL. He hadnt pitched in such a situation since coming back so I would think he was understandably "rusty".

    I understand why he brought in Bray, but the thought of saving Marshall for 2 innings in the future doesnt mean much to me when this was likely to be just as high leverage of a situation once the first guy got on.
