    Makes sense now. Ferrara was right.

    It's funny how we expected to split, knew he was a warm body, and are still bummed that something rare didn't happen.

    Cubs are just throwing a warm body as well. Reds should still have a good chance.

    I think it's only because the Reds are facing Boo Radley.

    You know things are good when even on a bad night at the yard, you still gain a half game on your nearest chaser.

    Took us to till the 5th to get a hit and then a run off of Mr. Boo Radley last week, for the record.

    by the responses in the thread I fear the Reds are down 15-1 at this point.

    I feel like Valbuena has been killing us, and he's not very good at all.

    poor job by Bruce missing the cutoff badly. Good try by Valdez though.
