"No matter how good you are, you're going to lose one-third of your games. No matter how bad you are you're going to win one-third of your games. It's the other third that makes the difference." ~Tommy Lasorda
Nasty pitch. Schierholtz strikes out swinging. 6 Ks.
Kratz grounds out to short.
For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.
Laynce Nix hitting for Kendrick
"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."
Nix flies out to left. 2-1 Reds mid 7th.
100 pitches for Latos. Not sure if he will be back for the 8th as he is due up 3rd.
If Tampa Bay can hold on against the Yankees (they lead 5-2 in their bottom half of the 6th), the Yankees will be tied with Baltimore for the division and TB will be just a game and a half out of first.
This is the Latos who could pitch in the playoffs.
"You only have to bat a thousand in two things; flying and heart transplants. Everything else you can go 4-for-5."
Even the player he is, is still mighty good and well above league average. I don't think anyone 'hates' Jay Bruce. Not from what I've seen from my many treks to GABP this year.
