    Rolen singles up the middle
    "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."

    Did Thom just say that Ryan Ludwick is hot?

    Seriously now, is there a better story for the Reds this year than Ryan Ludwick? The guy has certainly found his stroke after a few years absence.

    A comment on Valdez. He has played really well IMO. His numbers are a very small sample and do not give him justice.

    This game, he made a "productive out" in the first and got a hit here in the third.

    He made a bad baserunning play, no doubt. Should have been a dead duck at third.

    However, I thought he slid in safely.

    Go Reds.

    Crazy as it sounds .. it might be the best move Walt made in the past offseason.. who would've thought that at the time?

    Mez bounces one up the middle, the Pads DO finally get to one and throw him out.


    6-0 Reds after 3. Walt to join the booth.

    Ludwick's hot streak has been perfect timing. He's hitting when they need him to hit the absolute most. Now let's hope he continues when Votto returns. Having them all clicking would be enormous.

    Yea, I agree. Overall, I am pleased with Valdez and I'm happy he's on the team. It was just a bit funny.. He would've been thrown out at 2b on the hit and run but caught a break.. That's why I was joking about how he was determined to get out.

    Valdez has pretty much been the perfect backup middle infielder (and did great filling in at CF when the Reds needed him to)
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    I'm not watching, so if you'd be so kind, please update if Walt says anything of interest. I'll let you filter what you deem to be interesting lol
