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.
"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."
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!
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!

I absolutely recall you saying that. Well done. Major props. Reds salvage the home stand.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)...whoever loses this game gets swept...just a gut feeling.
