    I'm okay with Chapman's use. It's not like he's being used every day or game, it just seems that way.
    "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."

    Dusty's biggest fault. Refuses to use anyone but the closer for a save situation.

    If the Reds could ever get a big lead, we could see That.

    how could they have figured it hit him if it hit the backstop with such force? This ump is the worst.

    Phantom HBP. Never touched him.

    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)

    I was concerned about Marshall's sweeping curves with a tight zone and thin air.

    No matter what happens I'm mad about that phantom HBP. This injustice will not stand, man.

    Very worried. Why can't Marshall pitch some of these games? Dusty seems to think he's a loogy only.
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    Papelbon was right. Guy deserves to ump in the minors, not the majors... Ever.

    Re: 7/28/12 - Reds @ Rockies

    Dusty's obvious view is that Chapman can pitch two days in a row. He almost never works three. He had an off day Thursday, so he can pitch Friday and Saturday. I doubt he works tomorrow.

    He used to use Coco three days in a row, even more. So I guess Aroldis is getting off easy.

    That HBP was entirely bogus.

    Lucky they got the out on that grounder.
