    He has 3 strikeouts in 28 tries. He isn't catching a break because he can't do anything for himself.

    Sometimes I just want to step back and think about this team. 2 rookies playing fantastic ball. 20+ games over .500. And we're still getting Votto back. Just an amazing feeling watching this club.

    Yes sir. I don't like to get my hopes up, but this team just seems special.

    Don't know if Phililps can run fast in a footrace.

    But he gets about the worst break out of the batter's box I've seen.

    His time from home to first must be real slow.

    Broxton is ok, 23 saves at KC. The move was needed, the righty relievers on this team are generally overrated.

    Hoover will come up soon, they'll both be on the team. That will give Dusty another alternative.

    Fuzziness aside, if Chapman blows this I'll vomit.

    Polanco infield hit deep in the hole...
    "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 hate this team so much.

    Chapman not missing a lot of bats lately... hard to double up Rollins
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    Rollins bunt. Polanco out at 2nd.
