Velocity down. Very hittable.
Time to wakeup the offense from its week long slumber. Maybe this will give them a wakeup call.
Bound to happen, and less than stellar stuff tonight. But the Reds offense should have put this game out of reach early.

Just hit 94 on the gun. What the heck?

"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said.

That's an amazing statement."
I don't like losing, but I really hate losing to a AAA team.
Only 23K at the park tonight. Team playing to he low energy level of the fan support this week.
Every time he blows a save or even gives up a hit, everyone from Redszone message posters to Chris Welsh wonders "what's wrong with him!!!???" The answer? He's human. Some nights some guys don't have it. Even the best of them.
