    His HR/FB rate each of the past two years has been between 13-14%. That's consistent with a league average of about 11%, with added points since he pitches in GASP.

    Very few pitchers sustain a HR/FB rate over 15% for any length of time.

    Thom trying to pronounce "Gaby Sanchez" is unintentionally hilarious.

    solid night for Stubbs
    "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."

    Kyle Mcpherson in to pitch.

    Mercer in to play short.

    Stubbs pops out.

    Time to pull the plug on hoping Stubbs figures it out for the rest of this year. Never hits a ball hard it seems. No K's tonight though.
    This place use to be fun

    I just want to know what happened at the end of July and why he can't do that more frequently.
