    That is too crazy.

    In the truest sense of "valuable" Ludwick might deserve it, but in the spotlight-driven sense, it's highly unlikely.

    Real nice work by Marshall tonight to do what Redmond, Simon, and LeCure couldn't do and keep the Cubs off the board for 2 frames.
    "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 do think Votto can still win the MVP.

    Sweeping the MVP, Cy Young, Rookie of the Year and Comeback Player of the Year would be unbelievably crazy.

    Those lackluster innings loom large now, don't they?

    He's a great guy! Hometown boy with team attitude. He will pull in more money from another team if he declines his option next year.

    My brother- "If our starters pitched like that every night, I don't think I'd ever watch a game."

    Good thing he didn't grow up when I did.

    Marshall's 1-0 pitch to Clevenger was a thing of beauty. He almost fell down because he thought it was going to hit him and it slipped in for a strike.

    Wow, Marshall.

    As long as we're throwing out crazy ideas with the stakes so low in this game...with Marshall locked up through 2015, any chance we ever see him get a shot in the rotation? He's a starter converted to reliever.

    Rizzo has some work to do in the field.
