    It was nice to see Rolen have a good game.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    117-114 in their last 231 games. Maybe this is just a .500 ballclub. Hard to believe.

    I think it is. Or just over, maybe 84-78.

    Unless Jocketty gets out of bed one day.

    Either way, Baker is still the mismanager.

    Difference in the game to me was Homer going brain dead and allowing Revere to steal 3rd without even sliding....that run was the difference and a complete mental breakdown.....he already stole one before!

    I think Valdez had pinch hit in that inning so you could simply drop him in at third and leave Cairo on the bench.

    Even if a pinch runner had not been able to score on the play I still contend that bringing in a pinch runner was the proper play.
    The older I get - the better I was

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

    Valdez looks good in CF and batting 2nd now. Maybe Rolen will be okay for cleanup. The way we're playing right now a lineup of BP, Valdez,Votto,Rolen, Bruce is worth a shot. Need to fix the two guys before Votto.

    Bailey's mechanics were really screwed up last night. No wonder he looked tired at 75 pitches.

    I prefer the 2009 mechanical version over what Price has him doing. It was more fluid, better velocity and movement. He still wasn't a refined pitcher by that point, who knows how good he would be if they had kept that mechanical platform. I got to wonder if that isn't Latos's problem as well. The Reds fascination with pitch to contact and control doesn't work for all pitchers. Yet, they pigeonhole.
