This game reminded me of this other one: Sept 4 , 2010
Middle game of a series where the Cards needed to sweep to cut the distance to the REDs. Travis Wood pitched and hit a home run.
REDs had lost a close one the night before.
"A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky, dangerous animals and you know it."
Just watched the highlights, some real nice defense by Cozart in the game.
"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."
I was at this game yesterday and it was a ton of fun. Barry Larkin was all class both before, during, and after the ceremony (I found myself getting teary watching his teammates in the video montage and listening to Barry's speech) and the game was awesome. We even got there in time to get the Reds Stein which is AWESOME (we got there around 2:10 PM and they were all ready moving empty boxes ) and now up there as one of my favorite giveaways. We were also in the shade for both the ceremony and the entire game which made it even more of an enjoyable day. We also had no Cards fans around us anywhere AND there was no Molina in the game. Can't ask for more than these few things!

An MLB.com reporter asked what one thing Votto couldn’t do. “I can’t skate or play hockey,” Votto said. “Well, I can skate ... but I can’t stop.”
We definitely chose the right game to attend.
It's truly amazing how much the gameday experience for fans has improved since the banks finally were developed.
