    Chapman wont like that trade. Cuban special forces team will grab him and put him back on their WBC team.

    Dude, it's not going to happen.
    "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."

    Yeah, and we won't acquire Latos either.

    I really haven't been able to watch or even listen to much of this series, but it seems every time I have, Drew Stubbs has popped or fouled out with men on base.

    Anyway, while I'm obviously disappointed at the Reds play and although I'm pretty shocked to see them lay three turds in a row like this, I'm still happy with the team. Had anyone asked me in March whether this team was in the post season, I would have said no. However, I think these three games have shown that they still aren't where they need to be, which is rock solid up the middle.

    I just disagree. It made sense to send the runners in that spot, Hanigan is a very good bet to walk or make contact. It's an aggressive play but it should keep you out of the DP.

    Latos? I didn't see it, can't argue, but he's a pretty good pitcher and I wouldn't remove him on a whim.

    Xavier Paul? Who should he have hit, Cairo? If so, the board would have gone nuts. Not Cairo!

    Valdez in CF? Maybe he wants a guy who can play CF instead of someone who can't.

    I read the scores and I see 16-7 at home against. In particular, I see 7 runs in three games. All too familiar for this team with it's inconsistent offense.

    No, that's still technically a "hit-and-run."

    Down 3 runs in the deciding game and the manager is worried about staying out of the DP? Really? How about just worry about not running us out of an inning.

    Exactly. Bizarre calls. It makes no sense.

    I'm with you there- did Hanigan strike out looking? I thought he must have missed a sign because it's hard to believe a guy is going to leave the runners hanging like that.

    Yeah, but the further you get, the more it stings. I can't imagine what Rangers fans felt like last year. That had to be brutal.
