    If the fans did boo, I agree that it's bad. Back the team no matter what. They're not trying to lose. Leake wasn't trying to pitch badly. Arredondo didn't mean to pitch batting practice.

    Win or lose, be cool and be proud of this team.

    I was at both games and there was minimal booing at best. Leake actually got cheered by most people when he was running off after being pulled. I think Jay might be overreacting here.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    I heard heavy booing on TV for Arredondo.

    My source tells me they were saying "Boo-urns"
    They don't think it be like it is, but it do.

    Players normally do overreact to this. 35,000 can cheer and 2,000 can boo, but they always only hear the latter....nature of humans I guess.

    This is why being at home for the game tomorrow is awful. Always better to play these "it looks like we are about to choke" games on the road...the fans will only aid the tension tomorrow.

    I did hear that. And I assume that would happen in any stadium in the world after his performance. I'm not being defensive or dismissal of what Jay is saying. I just think his timing is odd and inappropriate.

    I don't see the kind of booing I see in GABP in other places. It's possible I'm just not watching the right games though. For me, you only boo your own guy when it's a matter of effort. Lollygagging, not having your head in the game, hot dog antics on a routine play and he flubs, etc. That's why they're the home team.

    Jay Bruce should concentrate on winning a ballgame.

    I don't really get this. Cincinnati is not and will probably never be in my lifetime the baseball town that St Louis is, so why even attempt to make the comparison?

    And I would have booed Arrendondo entrance onto the field and Dusty's decision. Leake, there was really no choice. Although I may have just laughed at him had I been there.

    I dont think the booing was directed at Arredondo as much as it was the decision to leave him in there after the 3rd of 3 batters hit a laser. He clearly was not fooling anyone, it should have been a quick trigger to Hoover while the game was still within reach.

    I'm not a booer, ok, maybe to the Steelers

    The fans pay good money to go to these games. Jay and the rest of them make even more win or lose.

    Suck it up. Win tomorrow and you will hear that stadium louder than it has ever been.


    I hope the fans don't turn into Philly or Atlanta fans if they lose. THAT would wrong!

    Thought this was going to be about scoring 4 runs in 19 innings at home so far.
    "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."

    It's not the time. I think we have a good fan base. I hope they're cheering tomorrow. We haven't won a playoff game in this city in almost 20 years. I hope he thinks about that on his drive home.
