"No matter how good you are, you're going to lose one-third of your games. No matter how bad you are you're going to win one-third of your games. It's the other third that makes the difference." ~Tommy Lasorda
"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."
Johnny loses his league lead in ERA, but now tied for the lead in wins. Glad to see the offense pick him up tonight.
Baseball is like church. Many attend, few understand
I just wish the Pirates would lose. They won't go away. Bet they say the same thing about us

Well, ESPN goes back to 2002, and in that span, we've swept 2 road trips. Both were only 3 game series though. May 10-12 in 2010 against the Pirates. June 10-12, 2003 against the Rays. A six game road trip....that'll take more digging than I have time for.
Regardless of tomorrows outcome....DAMN we're playing great. :O)
