    Re: 9/19/12 - Reds at Cubs

    I would love for the Reds to sweep the Brewers and end their run.

    I still do not know why the Reds FO did not see Quentin Berry as an option at AAA and just let a cheap option go like that.

    He would have been a great pickup and help get Baker off his Stubbs kick.

    The philosophy of 0-2 pitching. Why on earth did Hoover let Castro hit it almost out of the inning?

    For discussion at some other time.

    Now bases loaded and Lecure looks like he's coming in. Maybe not, just the pitching coach making a visit.

    It was a ball outside...still it was hitable.

    Hoover might not be ready for prime time...
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    Hoover not exactly impressing here. Rookies. You just never know. Putting them in a position like this is always a crapshoot.

    Hoover walked a guy earlier after 0-2. I hope that wasn't on his mind.

    Castro is a free swinger, make him chase. Whatever.

    And now the strike zone tightens up.

    Gameday indicates the first pitch was right down the middle...for a ball.
    "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."

    Ladies and gentlemen, in tonight's performance, the part of Carlos Marmol will be played by J. J. Hoover.
