    Ludwick continues to rake. Just was the victim of a good throw.

    A very good throw to get him at second.

    I don't think Broxton even warmed up too much too many times a week in KC - they had a lot of long losing streaks remember where a closer doesn't even sniff action - here he was warming up nearly every day. Add to that its getting later in the season after surgery. Probably a combination. I'm less worried about him if they give him some rest.

    Reds 7th:

    Stiubbs grounds out to third on the 1st pitch.
    Phillips grounds out to thrid.
    Ludwick singles off the wall inleft, Soriano throws him out at 2nd.

    Bowden at 18 pitches, 13 strikes.

    After 7, Reds 7, Cubs 3.

    Here's the Guns of Broxton.
    "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 late but I see Wood plunked Bruce. What is your guys take on Wood, do you think he's a punk?

    Lefty part of the order to face Broxton. Hope it works out. Seems to be throwing ok to start things off.

    I'm not really one to declare guys 'punks' but it was definitely a move of questionable integrity, and definitely lacking in intelligence. The thing that gets me is that Bruce is a former teammate.

    Based on the losers from Arkansas who stayed in the condo next to us in Destin last year...then yes. That's my broad paint brush though.

    Not a lucky start here for Broxton. Hopefully it's not a repeat of the Milwaukee game where he got bleeders and blooped to death.

    I still haven't got caught up to that... what happened to make everyone think it was intentional?

    Agree. He seems to be throwing ok, no sign of injury. Still, we need outs.
