    I need some medical marijuana right about now. Does marijuana help acid reflux, chest pains from stress, and stomach ulcers?

    I need some marijuana too, but it doesn't have to be for medicinal purposes.

    A lot of banter bw the opposing players on the bases tonight. 2010 seems to be a distant memory.

    Freese out of the game. The way that baby was swelling up, wouldn't be surprised if he missed the rest of the weekend.

    There are very few ways to measure future success or failure in baseball. One important way is to look at the schedule. Home. Away. Playing tough teams. Playing weak teams.

    Nobody knows if the Cards or Pirates will be hot or cold going forward. You can guess based on last year or based on stats. But none of these teams is the 27 Yankees, they go hot and cold. Nobody knows which they will be.

    So one guideline to look at is schedule.

    The Washington Nationals have the best record in baseball. The Cards play them seven times. The Reds and Pirates are done with them. I think that is quite significant.

    You obviously don't. Fine. But when the Cards play the Nationals while the Reds are playing the Astros, I'll take my chances with that situation.

    Fingers crossed for testosterone testing results.
    "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."

    He's hurt. Was plunked on the hand by a 96 mph Simon fastball.

    You mean Freese? I'm sure it's because of how bad his wrist was swelling up after the HBP. Injury concern...not posturing.

    Oh, sorry...just saw your edit.

    Losing to the Cardinals in a game they "should win" is nothing more than losing a game that should have been won. It doesn't hold extra special implications because they lost it. Not sure why some can't understand that.
    It does hold special implications because they lost a game they should of won...it's called a 2 game swing in the standings. That's the implication.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card
