    Phillips too awesome to run to first his last two times whiffing on in the dirt pitches. He looks like a fool. Just run.

    if we do, we still have at worst a 6 game lead.
    "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."

    Phillips and Ludwick were really pressing last inning, swinging at awful pitches. These guys just need to take a deep breath.

    I know. I was holding my breath on that one.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm very "old school" and I love the sound of a ball hitting a wooden bat...but there are days I think we'd be better served just switching to aluminum. Not to mention this crazy hesitation by stadiums to not extend the netting to well beyond the dugouts. Unfortunately it's going to take some horrific event to change things.

    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

    Pirates trail by three in the ninth, but Mr. Axford is doing his thing. Walked two in the inning, Pirates with a threat.

The Cards sweeing us here wouldn't decide anything, let alone this one game.


    Not at all. I am good.

    The tone has been set though and It blows. You have to pitch better than Latos did tonight.

    Think positive guys. Everyone's looking at worst case scenarios or ways to escape one.

    Major league hitters using aluminum bats would be scary. I would not want to be a pitcher with a line drive hit off an aluminum bat coming back at me.

    Meanwhile, Simon is lousing up this inning. I guess you don't want to waste more pitching so he stays in, but he's not really helping things.

    True. Maybe some other alternative. Something that DOESN'T shatter.

    What does "setting tones" mean?

    Honestly, tones don't win baseball games. Tomorrow the score will start out 0-0. That is a fact.

    I think I just broke my pinky toe on the corner of my in-table. And my brother just unleashed an epically disastrous fart. This night is unraveling quickly.
