    Let's hope Brox has his good fastball and his sinker going tonight.

    Let's also hope Chapman is getting ready as soon as possible.

    I think some people are taking missing bats to an extreme religion these days. It's been proven that you can be successful without striking guys out at a prodigious pace. All things being equal, I like guys that miss bats too. But I also like guys that keep the ball down.

    Pretty good and decisive to me. Good thing there wasn't a perfect game on the line.

    Seemed like Pinella was always looking for a reason to skip him in the order. He was just doing it to screw with my fantasy team!

    I'll admit it was a lot closer than I originally thought. I still think he was safe.

    Hoover both misses bats and has shown to be quite capable in high pressure situations.

    I'll take that.

    "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 like Hoover. Make no mistake, I'm not trying to diminish him. I just think Broxton is a heck of a lot better than he's given credit for, despite him no longer striking out 12 batters per nine.
