If the Reds have any hope at all of making a playoff run it has to start with a win tonight.

2-2 is an absolute must.

In a regular year, when there aren’t 12 teams in the hunt, I’d agree. But it’s time to start making moves. At home with our 4 best pitching. We need to take 3 out of 4. Do that and probably jump a few teams in the standings.
It’s absolutely possible

Each game in this series should be very tight. It really looks like it will come down to how long each starter goes.
Once they get to either bullpen bot teams weaknesses will be revealed.
Hopefully our starters can all go at least 7 innings and not expose our bullpen too much.

I am saying we win today & Bauer pitches a complete game on Friday which will be appropriately followed by the Friday night fireworks!

Their wives are best friends, too. When the trade happened, Wood's wife called Farmer's wife -- crying -- to tell her that Wood had been traded. Farmer's wife told her that Farmer had been traded, too. Wood's wife asked who they had been traded to. Farmer's wife said Cincinnati. Wood's wife said, "We were traded to Cincinnati, too!" And then they were happy again.

Yep- well I'm still not sure about his odd batting stance and while it works for him it seems like pitchers will find a way to exploit it up here at some point. Or at least that he will inevitably cool off.

Doesn't mean what he's doing right now isn't exciting. It is.

It's a 5-4 game. In the third inning. I'd think you'd want to try to squeeze at least an inning (or two) more out of Wood. It's going to be a long night and a long series. You've shortened your bench and bullpen by your own choosing. Better hope it works.

If your criticism when someone strikes out on a full count with the bases loaded on a pitch outside the zone is that the player screwed up, your criticism is stupid as hell.

But there is such a thing as expanding the strike zone in certain situations. That's one where it would have been perfectly understandable and in hindsight perhaps even necessary to do so. Admittedly maybe he pops out or taps out and the result is no different. Maybe he walks a pitch or two later. Maybe he strikes out a pitch or two later.

My only criticism is baseball is as always a game of adjustments. If you can't rely on the guy behind home plate in the umpire's mask to make the right call sometimes you have to at least try to take things into your own hands. Adjust that way.
