    I absolutely recall you saying that. Well done. Major props. Reds salvage the home stand.

    The good thing is that Dusty trusts you when you prove yourself, so Hoover should likely get more and more high-leverage opportunities going forward.

    Hoover and Lecure both pitching well, and just when we need them to!

    A perfect example of what Dave Cameron was referring to when he said to project a team's record based on their talent level.

    Step back, does anyone think this Pirate team with the roster as is, is an 88-90 win team most seasons? They were pesky but I never could take their roster that seriously...no offense intended, and as always I will note they are headed in the right direction.

    The Pirates are for real this year, they aren't going away.
    "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."

    Yep. No Chapman? No Broxton? No Marshall? No problem!

    Disclaimer - I'm not too concerned with trying to get the #1 playoff seed.

    But I'd love for the Reds to give Villareal,Redmond,& Cingrani some starts over the next few weeks to let the regular guys get a little extra rest. They have that luxury....do it!

    yep, exactly right. 162 games has a habit of doing that to a team.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    Very impressive outing by Hoover. I was expecting him to switch things up a bit but he just kept attacking the zone. Good job, JJ.

    Looks like Latos is the designated shaving cream man this year. He loves it!

    whoever loses this game gets swept...just a gut feeling.
    Yeah, but I got the feeling when you said in the game thread that it was with a gut feeling that it would be the Pirates that would sweep (it was after Ludwick missed an opportunity to win it in the B10)...

    Mullet guy is apparently named Kevin Cronin. Fun fact.
    That or I probably don't get some reference Jim Day is making.
    They don't think it be like it is, but it do.
