    No he didn't touch that. VERY tough play...and kinda unfair to think he "should've" had it.

    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Bailey just overthrew that next to last pitch. I don't send him out for the ninth.
    Sabermetrics is this: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Forget the rain. It's never an official game until the Reds piss away a run between third base and home plate. - Bluegrass Redleg

    Nice job Homer.
    "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."

    Yeah, I think that's enough.

    Luckily Gomez takes a humongous hack at a 2-0 pitch and hits it straight up. Any time you get down on Drew Stubbs... there's a guy like Gomez to make him look like Joe DiMaggio.

    I think Homer is done. Might have gone the distance with an easy eighth but now we'll see the pen.

    I'd guess Aroldis. He had Monday and Wednesday off, pitched Tues and Thurs. Pitch him tonight. Rest him tomorrow.

    Homer's pitch count is high enough to keep him in the dugout. No sense pushing it.

    Homer 112 pitches, now with a 3.74 ERA.

    Excellent outing.

    No I'd sit Aroldis tonight and use someone else.
    Opinions are like belly buttons. Everybody has one, and they don't want someone else's shoved into their face.

    I would rather not use Aroldis, he has been pitching a lot since the break and this lineup is loaded with righties. Get him ready, but try to let Arredondo get the save.

    Fantastic start for Homer. I've said this before, I don't care if he gives up a few solo shots or not, if he can limit the walks and keep the ball in the lower part of the strike zone...he'll be VERY good. If he can keep a 2:1 ratio in strikes to balls, he'll have success. Tonight, 78 strikes, 34 balls. That's fantastic.

    Gotta wonder if Stubbs knows the strike zone.

    Ugh... I might have to take this back after watching the latest Stubbs AB.
