    True that. I try and think of times that were worse to make myself feel better. Remember when Paul Wilson gave up 8 runs against the Dodgers and got removed with no outs and Dan O was laughing about it? Or when Ryan Franklin came into the game in extra innings and threw one pitch that Ramon Martinez promptly hit out to give the Dodgers the late night win?

"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."

    No I honestly don't remember those. I do remember Nick Masset giving up a grand slam to Manny a couple years ago. That was even less fun than right now. Or Matt Kemp last year off I believe Ondrusek that really didn't go over well at my house.

    I know this is a Game Thread.....but i can see where the dislike of Dusty ...finally....now....comes from. I would go back and forth on it before....but he just seems to be hiding out here, not challenged much about his wacked out ways of creating a lineup and thinking about how an offense is supposed to generate runs.

    My 2 favorite teams are the Reds and Bengals and they are both relics of offensive thinking of the 70's...and they are both in Cincy. It's awesome.

    Liked that AB from Mez. Didn't chase pitcher's strikes until 3-2. Let Leake hit

    I won't be able to watch this all night. Dusty is really driving me nuts.

    Dodgers are trying to keep us in this one.

    Stubbs looks at one down the middle, lays off one in the dirt, and then swings at one in the exact same spot as the previous one.

    He really has no clue up there, does he?

    I'm going to be off making my Dexter Fowler shrine, so I might not post a ton for the rest of the game.
