If they lose this game, they'll be 20-22 since the All-Star break. They had a few really good months of baseball. It was a nice story. Now it's time to acknowledge they're a decent team, but that's the extent of it. It doesn't mean they're out of the race or can't go on a tear, but I think we're seeing the regression a lot of people anticipated for a few months.

For all of the articles written about how pitchers become good, I've love for someone to logically explain how all of these Cardinals hitters become elite when they put on the Redbird uniform.
"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."
