    I agree with this. The slamming of Cordero is kinda unjustified IMO. He brought stability to a VERY poor bullpen when he came to the Reds.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Don't give in to the hitter. 2-0, big deal. Make him hit your pitch.

    Coco grooved it and Stubbs belted it. Nice.
    In his entire career, Jim Palmer never gave up a grand slam home run. He'd rather walk the single run in than give into a hitter and let him hit it out.
    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

    "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."

    Three hits for the much maligned Xavier Paul.

    Volquez's first ever shutout was last week against HOU? He never had one his first year as a Red?

    He always ran his pitch count too high.

    Xavier Paul has already become the most productive lefty-hitting bench player for the Reds this season.
    Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman. Damn glad to meet ya.
