    What a great great game. That was a gutcheck game, and the Reds came through. A real statement tonight.
    Sabermetrics is this: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Forget the rain. It's never an official game until the Reds piss away a run between third base and home plate. - Bluegrass Redleg

    One of the best ballgames of the year. I wanted that one bad.

    The Reds win-loss record since I joined the ORG is crazy!

    Split the first two games at Philly with Halladay and Lee pitching against Leake and Bailey.

    I'll take it.

    What a game. Wow wow wow. I'm really starting to believe in this team. And the fact that they've done all this without Votto for several weeks is mind boggling.

    They could be very dangerous in the postseason.

    "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."

    Or perhaps they're off to boo a disabled veteran with Labor Day coming up.

    That would be Labor Day, but point taken.

    On a serious note, that has to be one of my favorite wins of the year. Great game to watch and even better to come away with the W against a team the Reds can never beat.
