    Perfect example of a guy who will hack and still hit anything....is Castro.

    It's easy to say that in hindsight, but did you really honestly feel like Hoover would walk in a run given how he's pitched this year? I think he's earned that extra bit of wiggle room in that situation.

    The record suggests otherwise

    The sequence of pitches at 0-2 to Barney was imbecilic. So stupid. That kid is a disciplined hitter, he's not swinging at a garbage fastball over his head. This is the crap that doesn't seem to happen when Hanigan is behind the plate.

    I'm telling you that 0-2 waste pitch that was so high to Barney screwed up his release point...never could regain it.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    I would also think Hoover has performed well enough this season not to be overly criticized over one poor outing.
    "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."

    Important thing is to not let this thing get farther out of hand. Sad this team was up 5-1 and couldn't hold it.

    Guys do need time to get warmed up. Every time someone reaches base you can't have a new guy start warming up right away.

    Honestly, if Anderson gets a hit, good for him. Just do not walk in the go-ahead run.

    Agreed. And to be honest, sometimes someone cold off the bench is not necessarily a better option in a pinch than someone who's already warmed up. It's not always better to rely on someone to get an out fresh out of the pen.
