    Halladay puts down the Reds 1-2-3.
    "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."

    Halladay looks like himself now, so we really messed up. Of course, facing Cairo, Mes, and Leake isn't Murder's Row.

    Base running is one of the few areas of the game where we as amateurs can be legitimately critical. There is simply no reason for that sort of blunder to ever happen at the ML level.

    It might have been that Berry was signaling Phillips to hold at third, and Heisey thought that was for him.

    It happens an awful lot with the trio of Stubbs, Bruce and Heisey. It gets tired after a while. A mistake like that in the playoffs against an elite pitcher will kill you.

    As best I can gather, Berry held up the stop sign for Bruce or Phillips. Heisey thought it meant for him to stop so he held up at 3rd. Berry then basically pushed him towards home, at which point it was too late and he was out by a mile.

    Whose fault that is, I'm not sure. But that type of miscommunication is inexcusable at the major (or minor) league level.

    Surely Heisey has enough baseball instincts to know he could score from second on a hit. Surely.

    Why was no one on first for that? Not that it matters

    BTW, it's a 2-1 ballgame with Phils up in the bottom of the second. One on, one out.

    Phillies hitting Leake hard. 1st and 3rd, 1 out.

    Now first and third, one out, Halladay coming up.

    Leake quite hittable so far, some shots hit hard.

    Pitcher may bunt. Halladay bunting on first one, takes a strike. Now 0-2 count on foul bunt.

    K swinging.
