Do you guys think this team has been lucky for the entire season? One game goes sideways and now people are thinking this team isn't even a playoff contender. Wow.
It is finally over. Holliday grounds out to short. 8-5 Cards mid 6th.
Reds can still win this ballgame but they have to get good relief pitching.
Can't give up any more runs.
OK, I need to separate myself as someone who is just upset and frustrated by this game, and those that are completely overreacting.
Could we call in a rainstorm for four hours RIGHT now? That would nullify those runs, and Reds win 5 to 2... At least under the old rules.

"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."
"Now that's a real shame when folks be throwin' away a perfectly good white boy like that."
The bullpen has been a gas can as well lately. Hard to come back when the bullpen throws it back up. Arredondo has never met a 1-2-3 inning, Broxton is "unlucky" to the point of being bad.
Salas in to pitch
Stubbs strikes out swinging.
Can't believe after the season these guys have given us, with the way they've played without Votto, some of you are jumping ship over ONE GAME. Embarrassing.
