    With all these runners left on base, I have a feeling the game will be won on a cheap solo homer.

    One out. Get the next guy and pitch very carefully to Wright.

    Plus those runs/win expectancy charts are just general guides. The precise situation needs to be considered.

    Personally I don't bunt there because Young is very hittable, but I can understand it with Stubbs and his high K rate.

    If it were most anyone else in the Reds' lineup, I wouldn't be supportive of bunting there. But Stubbs' skillset doesn't lend itself well to advancing runners a high percentage of time.

    Dodgers take the lead on the Pirates. Victorino gets the ground ball with men on base, run scores. You know, what the Reds didn't do.

    The Reds need tonight.

    I don't like their chances against R.A. Dickey tomorrow, and there is nothing wrong with that.

    Nice play Frazier, inning over.

    Good defense by the Reds tonight. Need to hit.

    For some reason I think the Reds knock Dickey around tomorrow. Not sure why I think that, just a gut feeling.
