    Cards have a murderous road trip. Everyone relax, only one game.

    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.

    Does it really matter in the end who the bad games are against? Not until the playoffs.


    NO....they are a playoff team.. They are just not a team that I see going far....with a bench that has those 2.

    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.
    But if you think about it, when we get Votto back, we will have one of Frazier/Rolen/Ludwick/Votto on the bench every day, along with Paul, who has been great off the bench since he's been up. Getting Votto back upgrades the bench, too.
    This will not change until the Reds win the World Series.......

    That helps, honestly. Now I can watch the rest of this game while repeating "Votto is coming. Votto is coming. Votto is coming." in my head and feel better, like Bart at Kamp Krusty.
    "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."

    It's certainly showing who the bandwagon fans are. That's for sure.

    BTW...I still think we win THIS game.
    2014 predictions:
    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
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Not trying to pick on you but I keep seeing the "Walt sat on his hands" Maybe there was no good deal to be made. This team is sitting in a really good situation to have a pretty long run of success. As far as the bullpen they have definitely hit a rough patch but they are the best bullpen in the league.

    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.

    I think this game is over, but I think it's just *this game* that is over. I don't think it's any way indicative of the rest of the season.

    As fans, is it safe to say that all of us see certain trends? As I've watched, the only one of our starting pitchers that is holding up is Cueto, and even he has been fading just a tad, yet even if he doesn't, he can't prop this team up by himself until the end of September, especially if the offense isn't going to give the pitchers some run support. 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 you're basing the fate of this year's team in the playoffs based off the 25th man, can you please tell me who'll win the super bowl this year based on final cuts coming up soon?

    The Reds have struck out 10 times in 6 innings.

    I am waiting. It's starting to remind of the slow crawl of one of Justin Mornaeus injuries. Not Votto's fault of course.
