    Yea that was great with those kids. He did a really classy thing with them and that organization.

    Great game by Latos. I really liked what I saw out of him in a big ballgame. He was all business and he didn't let anything get to him. If he keeps on maturing like he has he's going to be an ace on this staff. I didn't really know what to expect from him tonight. I was really worried the moment may get to him and have rough outing. But he was great and I could see him coming up big in the playoffs too. Oh and the home run he hit wasn't bad either.
    Reds can be no worse than 2 1/2 front by the end of the weekend. But they way this team is playing I believe they may just sweep this Pirate team.

    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    My wife & I were heading back to our car and I pulled out my phone to see how the Pirates did. Oh yeah, they lost. Seriously, I did.

    What a great game; inside the park home run; a pitcher home run. The prototypical final K for Chapman and 4 1/2 game lead. Sweet.

    And 2/3 of the way thru the game, I realized we were sitting next to our oldest daughter's 3rd grade teacher (eons ago). Too funny.

    Check out his groom's cake on the thread about him entering into this long-term contract. Sweet!

    Maybe McCutchen shouldn't crowd the plate so much. That pitch wasn't that far inside.

    Agreed. Some people have a head that's shaped right for being bald. Marty is one of them. He needs to work on the tan, though.

    Mrs. Brennaman looks quite a bit younger than Marty.

    So, how many innings go by tonight before the Pirates plunk a Red in retaliation? I'd look for it early and if Votto and Phillips don't play, I'm not sure who it'll be. Maybe Bruce?

    I think it's coming...

    Re: 8/3/12 - Reds vs. Pirates

    BTW, I have to give some kudos to Cairo. He has acquitted himself well in the abscence of both Phillips & Valdez. Three double plays and it would have been four except for him bobbling one to him. Even there, he recovered enough to still get the lead runner. He also ended up with a wide ranging one for a long throw to first (although that would have been a simple one for Brandon). I think there was only one ball that got by him that I think Phillips would have gotten. Never going to make us forget either of our other 2nd basemen, but he's held the position down sufficiently.

    Just saw the replay of Latos' homer. Directly to a Buccos fan who disgustedly threw back behind him.

    Sorry for these disjointed post game thoughts. Happiest guy to greet Heisey after his inside the park home run? Jay Bruce. I noticed that on the screen as they showed him in the dugout getting congratulated for his feat.

    Probably the first inning. But it sill doesn't change the fact that the pitch wasn't that far inside.
