    The really bad thing is that you will not get a better pitched game than this one. It almost feels wasted. Just a shame the Reds couldn't generate more offense against Vogelsong. His stuff didn't look that exceptional to me.

    This game was a great argument for moving Votto up. At the end of the game, with one last gasp, Zack Cozart got a 5th PA and made the final out while Votto languished on deck. The biggest impact of your lineup is who gets the most plate appearances. In a game where offense was hard to come by, Dusty decided it was more important to give the career .251/.290/.405 hitter a plate appearance at the expense of the best hitter in the league.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    100% agreed. Affeldt was the only one who genuinely looked good for the Giants.
    "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."

    I was at the game. Most devastated I've been after a Reds loss that I can remember. That was such a winnable game, and they found a way to blow it. I have an awful feeling about this series now.

    I cried all the way home. Haven't cried after any game since the 2001 season. First year for season tickets: saw 45 games including 2 in Cleveland... The team only won 14...
