    I don't disagree, guy is a rookie, I don't expect him to place the ball perfectly. He did hit it hard.

    Turned out to be unproductive, then wild pitch fixed it, then the double play.

    Whatever.

    The trouble is it leaves the pitcher leading off, if he takes the walk, yes the pitcher comes up but then he isn't an automatic first out next inning either. I think you always take the walk if its given.

    Instead, Stubbs would get to be the automatic first out.

    I understand your point and see the logic.

    Your point is stronger in the case of a Mesoraco, a relatively inexperienced hitter.

    But a veteran hitter there, wants to hit the sacrifice fly, gets a pitch off the plate he can handle, I want the sac fly even if it fails once in awhile.

    This is better. Can get a snack after this half inning and probably won't miss anything. Get back for Cozart.

    Homie's on a roll.
    "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."

    Never really sure if we're watching the emergence of Bailey, or a hot streak, but he sure is pitching like a #2 guy (for what that's worth), out-performing everyone outside of Cueto this year. Never seen him more confident than he's been this month.

    Braun strikes out swinging. 9 Ks for Bailey. Season high. 1-0 Reds mid 6th.

    Bailey really found it on the west coast, and it's carried over to GABP.

    And he gets strong in the late innings.

    Pitching great right now.

    We're seeing this kid become an ace right before our eyes. Reminds me of Rijo in the second half of 1990. Next thing you know, he'll be saying "it's over."
