Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
Simon in to pitch.
Schumaker singles to left.
Wow is this ugly. Wild pitch movs the runners to 2nd and 3rd.
Simon has officially regressed to his mean.
"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."
Actually that should be a passed ball. It went right off Hanigan's glove.
Extra innings and late travel catching up to them.
If evolution is outlawed, only outlaws will evolve!
This inning has completely deflated the stadium/crowd.
99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
Bailey CYA winner

The use of Arredondo and Hoover last night comes back to haunt. Simon really isn't the guy for this situation.
He's hardly pitched in weeks, this isn't a good spot for him.
Now second and third, 3-0 count. Oy.
Reds are down 1 run in this game and up 7 games in the division. Just wanted to post that in case any newcomers to the thread thought the Reds were losing 10-0 and lost 9 games in the standings since last night.
This is why Simon is a 6th inning pitcher.
Simon now looking like the pitcher the Orioles got rid of.
Question: Did the Reds send Latos back to Cincinnati early, or did he get in at 4:00 a.m. this morning like the rest of the team?
Simon sure didn't leave early last night....
I think these guys might just be a little tired.
"I think he'd be unbelievable. He's as organized as anyone in the game, he holds people accountable... He doesn't buy into stereotypical things in the game... Price looks at evidence. He's a freaking smart guy, he makes his decision on reasonable evidence." Bronson Arroyo
