    Simon has hardly pitched lately, so I'll give him a pass for some troubles last night and this.

    After tonight, the pass is over and he should be more effective.

    Go Reds.

    Considering my mood, making me laugh HARD right now is quite impressive. :O) Well done cincrazy.

    I say we just go to wiffle ball sets. Some nasty curve balls with that, plus you'd have to on some serious PEDs to get big numbers there.

    Problem is when will Baker think about using him again? Catch 22 with him it seems.

    Meanwhile in Pittsburgh John Axford is in the process of blowing the lead. It is now 6-4 Brewers and the Pirates hasve 2 on with 1 out.

    Well, kudos to your honesty and use of vernacular.

    With the guy we got pitching for us tomorrow...you need a rested bull pen.

    You honestly don't know what your going to get from Leake start to start. He was given all kinds of runs against the Phillies and he was thowing batting practice to them.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    The Reds' beat up on bad teams, they have had an easy schedule, they're a very good team, it's how they do in series like this that concerns me, because it'll be just like this one in October, or last night, with or without Votto.

    We can only "hope" they stave off the Cardinals, because a 4-5 game lead ain't all that if they can't take 2 of 3. It's hard not to be a bit concerned.

    But losing to the Cardinals in a game they should win like tonight, considering the next two matches, is ridiculously frustrating.

    Not sure why some posters can't just understand that and let some things pass and shrug it off, it's baseball, it's the internet, people overreact, people have differing opinions, that's life.

    You know, I've always wanted to see some big leaguers play wiffle ball. I think it would be a total blast to watch. Dead serious.

    Now the Brewers... there's a team going nowhere this postseason unless they buy tickets.

    Stubbs strikes out.

    Marty is going through all the men left on base for the Reds without mentioning that Latos was hitting in many of the key spots.

    Phillips up.
    Must get Stubbs into 8 hole. Soon.

    Good point. When a guys is designated "long man" he rarely gets a chance. He's like an insurance policy,.

    A lot of folks wanted Simon used more in later innings, maybe they were correct.

    Anyway if the Reds need him in the next week or so the rust should be off.

    I'm going to assume that the most negative people just hate the Cardinals (like most of us do) so much that nothing makes rational sense to them right now.
    "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."

    Arroyo would be a great wiffle ball pitcher
