    Bruce leads off the bottom of the 5th with a single. Rolen follows with a four pitch walk. Two on, none out for Mesoraco. Need to get some runs here.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Mesoraco hasn't had an RBI since July 7.
    "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."

    Mesoraco lined out to RF, Bruce to 3rd. Heisey pinch hit single makes it 5-2. First and second, one out for Stubbs.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Real black hole when Stubbs is followed by Valdez.

    Gotta protect. Gameday had it right on the zone....you just can't go up there and look at two strikes down the middle and then not protect.

    Stubbs shouldn't be counted on as a black hole against a lefty, though. He has been thus far tonight, but normally I'd feel good about him against LHP.

    I think our Reds have no intention of winning this game, everyone looks sloppy and lethargic

    I hereby retract my previous comment. The Reds will not win this game.

    Yeah, I think we can just about pack this one in.
