    This Pirate team is always coming back. Beware.

    Latos is done. Broxton coming in.
    "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."

    Still can't figure that last play out. Looked like an easy out. Stubbs must have misjudged it, I just don't get it.

    Tough play, man.

    Price apparently mistakenly calls for the righty Broxton instead of the lefty, Marshall.

    Too bad that Latos' night ended on that...have no idea how Stubbs didn't catch that. Uber-catchable.

    Educate me, if a coach/manager points to a hand, is he then locked into that pitcher, before he appears? If so, that's a very dumb rule.

    I guess if you have two guys in the pen that's the rule. He had a short but terse discussion with the ump. I have no idea what the rule is. Maybe he did want Broxton?

    Broxton is a very ground ball, keep it in the park pitcher though I think I like the call

    They guys a big HR hitter and he took a huge cut at that pitch but it hit off the end of the bat. Easy to misjudge that one, but it's not easy to take as a fan.

    Think the problem may be the camera angle. Just made it look like an easy fly ball. Your explanation is undoubtedly correct.
