"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."

    Yep. This offense is just so limited. Even with Votto.

    Remember that run of bad luck & losses that we feared would come after the hot streak?

    Not having Stubbs-Cozart in the field killed the Reds this inning. But we know those guys in their late 20's need their rest.

    And now Ondrusek. Sweet.

    I suppose when a team wins 22 of 25 games, it naturally is going to use up its fair share of fortuitous bounces. Now the delicate balance of nature is thumbing its nose at the Reds for being too generous in the first place.

    Latos was pretty much just dominating. There was no reason to pull him. But you can pin this one on the offense too. Bases loaded, one out, and nothing to show for it.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Stubbs is in center. Came in on a double switch when Broxton came in.

    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

    He pitched 7 innings, about 100 pitches, and we have the best bullpen in the majors. Aoki just made contact and got on base with two outs. I'm mad as anyone about this game but pulling Latos was a coin toss.

    No reason? Well he was right at 100 pitches and the pen has been absolutely nails.

    And sure, you could blame the offense, but I think you've got to hand out equal portions of responsibility there to the Brewers defense. They've played VERY well today with the leather.

    All I saw was what looked like Heisey diving. Watching on my phone is less than optimal. Where was the ball hit?

    Thing about Broxton, he doesn't put guys away. So a lot of balls are hit. And luck plays its role, today bad.

    I would have put Marshall in to face Aoki, as I said before.

    Welsh asking why the NEW pitcher throws the intentional walk. Announcers always say the earlier pitcher should do it.

    Reason must be that you can remove a pitcher after he faces one batter.

    Bad game so far.
