The world is ending attitudeis driven by the events in each game Tom. You know that as do I. I am even susceptible to it and I know it. I apologize if I post some stupid emotional stuff in game threads but darnit!!!! This offense is sooooo frustrating!
"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 think this team will be just fine. They just look ready for vacation a bit too early.
Ninth inning coming up.
I want the Reds to win, but mostly i want to disappoint the Pirates radio announcers.
Plus I dread the west coast swing. Year after year this has been the killer for the Reds season. They are actually playing better than I thought because I underestimated one thing. These parks make our pitchers that much better, too...
I don't know.
This offense is BELOW average on the road. I repeat again 10th in the NL with a .684 OPS. The trend has been t lose these type of close games over the past three weeks. Call it bad luck, poor roster construction, too much cap-tipping whatever...
