    I wish they would share some of that pitching with us.

    Wow. Mercker just struck out Furcal twice.

    Valentin swings at a 3-2 pitch over his head. 1 down.

    Giles robs the Reds of another hit.

    Dunn hits a homerun...BUT it slices foul. Then he takes strike three called right down the middle. Sigh.

    Olmedo botches a routine groundball. The brightside to all this is we get a high draft pick in next years college pitching heavy draft. Of course the Reds will draft a high school pitcher.

    In case you can't tell by the tone of my posts, I am frustrated with this organization.

    Good lord.

    First, Olmedo completely boots a Giles grounder, Giles steals 2B, and then Belisle throws a Wild Pitch on ball four of the IBB to Andruw Jones.

    Pathetic.

    Conspiracy theory of the day:

    Belisle is still a Brave at heart and wants them to win

    LaRoche K's. Now they're walking Francoeur to face Langerhans.

    Hmn. That's another odd move (Narron's 2nd in two nights).

    You'd rather pitch to Francour?

    Whew! Out of it. Belisle had a hand in creating that mess, but neither Olmedo or Narron made it easy for him.
