    Cairo shouldn't be even sniffing the starting lineup if Rolen is at 3. Frazier is young enough to handle these duties.

    Spot on. Sometimes I think this board is happiest when we're in last place. It seems very hard to get some people to look at the positives.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    I'm trying to interject some humor. It's only 1 game. We'll get'em tomorrow.

    And Wood had a perfecto into the 8th or 9th on a Friday night? Yep. Bad vibes...it happens.

    Well I do think you're right there. It kind of blows my mind that I'm often the only one posting in threads over the last month or so when I remember 06-09 being nonstop discussion about how bad we are.

    Today's game is disappointing because I thought if we could get to Halladay, we would win. We got to Hallday and had a lead, but it doesn't look like we're going to get close to winning.
    "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."

    This has become my least favorite place for the Reds to play. Pittsburgh is right there.

    A lot of it stems back to when I ran the Reds Network (when the Reds sucked) and it seemed like every lengthy, god awful rain delay, happened in that state of Pennsylvania.

    True. Fortunately, there's probably only about a 3% chance of that happening.

    That's why I don't get how so many people think the Reds winning the division is a slam dunk. It's really not at this point.

    Has to be some concern by the team about Leake and Bailey, but Leake has some good starts in his last four, but Bailey has none. Combined, they've pitched 42.2 innings, allowed 63 hits and 33 runs in their last four starts.
