    Well, that was fun. No tension and lots of runs. Arroyo was great and the bats have come alive. For everyone fretting about whether this team will hit can now put that worry aside. Take care of business Tuesday and finish off the Giants.

    Left my phone by my bed last night when I turned in. Woke up around 2 a.m. and was pleased to see we'd won 9-0. A bit later my wife stirred and I rolled over and told her. What a great marriage we have - she was just as happy as I was. Then back to sweet slumber with visions of moving on in the playoffs!

    Great game! Well...not a great game in a "baseball contest" sense but a great game for the Reds.

    The Giants look whupped.

    To me, the star of the past two games has been the defense.

    Love that defense!

    I like to go back and read the opposing team's paper and their account of a game. Here's what the San Francisco Chronicle wrote about yesterday's game:

    Arroyo skunked the Giants with his array of offspeed pitches thrown at every imaginable angle. Reds pitchers won with brute force in Game 1 then dropped a velvet hammer in Game 2.

    The story also noted that no team has won three games on the road to come back from an 0-2 deficit and, further, that the Reds have not been swept at home this year, nor have we lost three in a row at home either.

    This guy is basically useless right now besides games like this. They already have Simon for games like this. It's going to be a bullpen of 3 guys, LeClure and then Hoover. Jose will be persona non grata pretty soon.

    The Operator better keep starting these until we lose.

    Yep, too bad it was all downhill after that
    Those two moves were genius though.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    I made this comment while watching at work last night. Annoying when it was just Pittsburgh, now it seems it's everywhere.

    The joy of working 3rd shift when the team travels west is I don't have to worry about being kept up late .
    Is it "next season" yet?

    And at the very least my special avatar lady needs to make at least one appearance each Game Thread.
