Bronson always seems to be big opposing team inning away from blowing a big lead, as we see tonight, same for Latos... Homer is a head case, and I'm not sure of Leake. Games like this, and more specifically a series like this drives home the fact that something needed and should have been done at the trade deadline to shore up any one of the ares that this team could sorely use help in. Anything to help prop this team up would've been great.
    If the only one that is holding up is Cueto, how have they gone 30-12 since the All-Star break?

    Something psycho always happens between these two teams.

    Five runs through six is actually pretty decent run support.

    I love this team. And I don't mean the Reds, obviously we all do we're on a message board on a Friday night, I mean this 2012 Cincinnati Reds team. I freaked out 6 weeks ago when Votto went down and thought the season was probably over. They've played incredible for those 6 weeks without their MVP. They can pitch, they play good defense, and they can hit a little bit. They battle back constantly and most importantly they are just a really good team.

    I think we are going to be playing in October and I don't think it will look anything like 2010.


    No problem. A few here are....even when I agreed with what they are posting....when they were being negative as well.

    Cincrazy's fact of the day: Even if the Cards sweep us by a combined score of 60-12 this series, we still lead them by four games.

    Oh, and some guy named Votto comes back soon.

    I'm going to gamble and say that much of it was that they were that good for that stretch, but we all know there were many breaks that fell our way also. Look, I'm simply posting as an observer. I'm no expert, and I'm certainly not trying to incite anything on here in a negative way. Please don't take what I'm saying so personally. Just casual observations.

    I'm not trying to pick on you Tony. I just think you're overreacting to one game man. I've got a sick feeling in my stomach too. This game sucks. But the beauty of baseball is, the tide turns fast. Tomorrow is a new day. The 2000 Yankees were DREADFUL in September, and won the World Series. The 2006 Cards won 83 games. Won the World Series. The Cards sweeing us here wouldn't decide anything, let alone this one game.

    it can always be worse
    "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."

    Nice change up there from Simon. He's settled in a bit this inning. Just keep this team in striking distance and we've seen what they can do.
    This will not change until the Reds win the World Series.......

    Exactly. Five runs usually wins for this team. Cueto and Latos with subpar outings in games against good teams.

    Too bad, but the team isn't going down the tubes. Just a couple of bad outings by the team's best starters.

    I'm confident that Cueto and Latos will come back next time against Arizona.

    This series, maybe the Reds can pull out this game or beat Garcia or Wainright.

    sure...not the rest of the season but this sets the tone for THIS series. If we don't come back, it will be one of the worst losses of the year. Up 5-2 with Latos pitching in the 6th, Chapman rested, we should win.

    Leake and Bailey have not exactly been lights out in GABP.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card
