    They are finding ways to lose right now.

    It's amazing that this same team went 22-3 over that awesome stretch. That's baseball I guess, but dang. Sooooo very frustrating.

    Ondrusek is proof positive that archaic baseball guys still run teams. It's sad how under qualified dusty is for his job.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    No matter what decision that's made, if it goes poorly people whine and complain.

    you need to score more than 3 runs against one of the worst teams in baseball.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    Cordero may be the only pitcher I'd rather the Reds face in this situation other than Marmol.

    True, but Logan should never, ever be brought into a high leverage situation. He just cannot get it done.

    I consider myself fairly levelheaded but as someone who has watched each of these last games, it's hard to see any positives right now.
    "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'm not arguing the decision. I'm arguing that Logan should be in Louisville.

    I've been a supporter of Ondrusek for awhile, but the use of him in that spot deserves criticism.

    Soriano and Castro ARE the Cubs' offense. They are the power guys for the team.

    Have to use a more effective reliever in that spot. Arredondo pitched to one hitter and was lifted. Then Logan comes in with the two big bats up?

    Just very upsetting.
