    Do you really think we'd notice a tremendous difference in getting an extra base runner in front of Votto every 3 games?

    That's not to say it shouldn't be done, but I don't think we'd really see a noticeable difference.

    I think pirates will go after a starter by the deadline. And now 5-4 after a HR by Casey McGhee

    I know what you're saying but I'd notice a difference darn it. Man I am SICK of seeing 2 automatic outs start every game.

    Pirates with 23 come from behind wins 2nd only to Miami this year so far (another sign things might not continue to hold so well for them). Brad Penny sighting in Giants bullpen. Giants add 1 in 7th 6-4 mid 7.

Anybody who thinks that the Reds are going to substantially increase the number of runs they are scoring by juggling the current players in rotation is fooling themselves.

    TMBS, I'm sick of seeing Stubbs and and Cozart at the top of the lineup too...
    Agree.

"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."
