    easy


    We're good again!
    "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."

    Cubs 9th, Chapman in to pitch for the Redlegs.

    Barney bounces out to Cozart at short.
    Rizzo bounces the 1st pitch to Frazier at 1st.
    Soriano grounds out to Rolen

    Chapman at 7 pitches, 4 strikes. (No Ks!)

    And this one belongs to the Reds, 7 to 3.

    Least dominating performance by Chapman in a victory this year.

    And this one belongs to the Reds. Fun game.

    Odd ending though...Chapman, non-save situation AND no k's. I'll take it though. :O)

    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Haha it's all good. I completely get why he'd use Chapman there, I just figured I'd have some fun with it.

    The Cubs didn't want to make him work very hard, thankfully.

    Actually a big win. Now Cueto and Latos, with Redmond in between.

    Now if the Bucs and Cards would tie...

    Great game and I actually got to watch it! Please tell me that George will be gone after Sunday. Is Thommy sick or something?

    Magic number is now 38 for the Pirates, 37 for the Cards.

    FYI...Billy Hamilton leads off the top of the 6th for Pensacola in 10 minutes or so if you want to head over to the Minor League Forum.

    The thing I'm wanting to go back and look at is whether or not Ludwick did anything to show up Wood on his HR trot or something. Anybody notice anything out of the ordinary?

    ~edit~ Just went back and re-looked at it, I sure didn't see anything "hot dog'ish" about anything. Either just a bad pitch, or an intentional plunking. Regardless of which it was, the Reds responded EXACTLY they way they should. On the scoreboard.

    Please tell me someone else heard George say "Well, Soriano got wood" on that last out.
