in 2010 in the All-Star game he went from 1st to 3rd and scored the go-ahead run. He pulled his hamstring and was not the same for the rest of the year.
He knows no other way but play "balls to the wall" every play. He respects the game.
Not this year...maybe a Wild Card
Kal and I understand each other. He was probably mocking me, but I laughed out loud. The emotions of these games make you do and type a lot of things you wouldn't normally do. It was a joke, that's all. Nothing can take away the joy of how this team is playing.

I was thinking about this last night when I saw a little kid in the dugout with a Cairo jersey on (I assume his son). I don't think they would or even should DFA him. Let the season play out and part ways then.
Tonight just really convinced me. What little he's got in the tank is enough right now with this team and the chemistry should not be messes with. That and he really seems like a great guy.
I guess all this winning has made me a softy.

Getting back on track, I have the Reds as 6 runs back of the Nats as far as least amount of runs allowed in the Bigs this year.
Dusty says he doesn't anticipate BP being available tomorrow.
"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."
Leake had a nice bounceback outing. Two windblown homers that are normally cans of corn and the wp third strike (worst rule in the game).
Can't win with 'em
Can't win without 'em
KittyDuran back home from the game and was glad to keep her Leake t-shirt on the right way. She's debating whether to go to tomorrow's game (not part of ticket packages).
2014 Reds record when I'm attending: 3-42014 Dragons record when I'm attending: 1-0

This really was an awesome game to go to. Packed house and big win against a divisional rival. It was even sweeter that Hughes gave up the winning run while 'Cutch' put up an O-fer. Bring out the brooms tomorrow boys!
