    I still like our chances in Game 5.......

    Latos on the hill, a nasty bullpen, and I think we'll see a return of the grimly determined hitting we showed in game 2.

    I knew as soon as Rolen committed that error last night that we would be having a Game 5. There was zero chance we were winning today, there just wasn't.

    I could puke right now.

    I'm going to go against every natural instinct in my being as well as every data point from tonight's debacle and agree with you.

    Re: I still like our chances in Game 5.......

    More reasons why we win from today's game thread:

    - We're at home
    - Latos hates the Giants and tends to mow them down nicely
    - Our BP, while maybe not as rested (debateable), is still the class of the NL with maybe just the exception of Dondedondo.
    - We have the bats
    - Cain has lost a bunch of times for reasons that haven't changed; doesn't matter that it'd be the 4th time.
    - Dusty has the biggest motivation of all time to make the right calls to close out
    - Can't have both my postseason predictions proved wrong on the same day; that'd be crazy talk
    - Timmy won't be on the mound again for SF
    - Got our butts handed to us in 2010 and too many on this roster won't let it happen again. Motivation matters.

    Hanigan will be behind the plate calling the pitches.

    I agree. Though tonight is a loss even if he was back there.

    In Hanigan we trust.

    Absolutely. Hanigan wouldn't have changed tonight's outcome. But tomorrow as with any day is about putting the best possible team on the field to win. Hanigan's a part of that to be sure.

    this is the moment we got Latos for and I expect him to live upto the moment. I think hes a big game pitcher and embraces a situation like this.

    go reds!!!
