    Starting pitching has been a disaster this series. Amazing they could win 3 of 4.
    "In our sundown perambulations of late, through the outer parts of Brooklyn, we have observed several parties of youngsters playing 'base', a certain game of ball. Let us go forth awhile, and get better air in our lungs. Let us leave our close rooms, the game of ball is glorious"

    I think Welsh is great, but have you ever heard him do play-by-play on the radio.

    It's bad.

    Worse than Brantley.

    You ain't lying.
    "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."

    Padres are up to 25 runs in 3 and not quite a half games against us.

    I've heard him on radio, I guess I consider it a treat, compared to the normal jokers that appear in the booth.

    Kelch is the best non-explayer announcer.

    I guess I don't even mind Brantley that much.

    The Brennamans are the worst.. Thom is horrible on the TV. I remember the last game on TV I saw with Thom. The Reds are leading, but a Red failed to get a bunt down which lead to a huge rant by Thom.. The Brannamans don't realize that nobody successfully sacrifice bunts 100% of the time. They act like everyone should be perfect every time. They are annoying far too often, which outweighs their sometimes good moments.

    Doug Flynn on radio is horrible.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    He's played very well at first base. He hardly ever plays third and hasn't really hurt the club there.

    He is playing second as a third string emergency second baseman and made a terrible play. That I'll agree with.
    His not making plays have cost the Reds greatly. Bobbled DP balls, high throws when he's playing first that directly resulted in runs, plus his general inability to field anything not directly at him.

    Has become far too much of a liability w/ the leather.

    I guess i dont accept the jab. Starting pitchers giving up solo homeruns in gabp on an august afternoon is unsurprising to me. Even from someone as good as cueto. Its extra bonus runs from crap D that tend to be deadly in gabp especially on days where the ball is flying.

    Wasn't a personal jab.

    The game thread is being kind to Cueto IMO. He's allowed two homers in four innings. He allowed two baserunners (on hits) who scored, in part due to the misplay, and in part because of a third hit - a hard hit shot to Cozart.

    I said Cairo's play was terrible. But Johnny doesn't get a lot of kudos for today, either.
