    And that's all I have to say about this one.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Go kill the Cubs.
    Milwaukee always seems to step it up when they are in a spoiler role vs us.
    It's really annoying.

    Hopefully Pitt loses tonight.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    What's worse is that we just lost Cueto and Latos's starts. The rest of those guys have been marginal recently.

    Back of the rotation is due for resurgence. Better be. Not exactly facing Walter Johnson in the Cub series, should be able to score a few more than in Milwaukee.

    8 runs last four games!
    at least it's still a 5.5 game lead in the wild card race

    Wildcard is a last ditch resort. Division or bust.
    "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."

    I don't worry much about this offense. There is still that guy named Votto that will be back soon. I hear he's pretty good. The Reds most certainly did more without him than anyone could have ever expected. Now he'll be back soon and the offense will be fine. Not great, but good enough to get them winning again.

    The Reds now face Volstad with a 7.22 ERA. Justin Germano who has a lifetime 4.83 in the majors. Travis Wood who is 4-8 with a 4.77. And Brooks Raley, a lefty in his second career start who got hit hard the first time.

    I mean, it's time to win some games.

    Those guys pitched well enough to win. So did Milwaukee. Someone told me last night that we were facing Wolf and he would prove why Milwaukee was nor a good team. Surprise. Apparently the bats have cooled off. Top five today were 2-20. Brutal. Of course a lineup that features Heisey (0-5), Valdez (0-4), Bruce (0-4), etc couldn't beat many teams (the way Bruce is playing). Then the bullpen fails. Bad luck. Hope it ends soon. And it will. It's the law of averages.

    Reds will be fine. 22-7 their last 29. 16-7 without Votto. The order of those happening is less important than the fact that its awesome that they did this.

    My memory of Broxton seems to be correct. He's fine most of the time, but doesn't handle adversity well. Some bad luck there, but it seemed liked that swinging bunt by Aoki with two outs really threw him, compounded but the Navarro throwing error.

    I am not looking forward to seeing him close out close games.

    Threw him?

    He gave up 3 lucky singles.

    It's not like the initial luck was followed by two gap doubles or a HR.

    The Reds have hit into horendous luck the last 3 days. It was likely due.

    We were ovbiously lucky during the 22-3 run, as even the best team in the world can't do that without a healthy dose of luck.

    Is Navarro really that bad defensively or did he just have a bad day?
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    I was thinking the same thing. He certainly has been less than impressive since his arrival from Louisville.
