    Why is that over the top? It's dead on.

    But what's doubly sad is that the Reds are still really thin on pitching. It just seems endless.

    Still 5-3 Redbirds, going to the bottom of the 8th.

    And have you ever seen two guys struggle as much as Jay Bruce and Edwin Encarnacion lately? Wow, they look clueless.

    At a minimum, a player taken in the '09 draft won't reach the majors until 2011-12, so I think this is fairly silly. The Reds need to draft the best prospects they can, offense or pitchers and go from there.

    Just what I figured, the crappy Cardinal bullpen comes in and shuts down the Reds offense.

    Dickerson is 1 extra base-hit away from tying the MLB record for most extra base-hits to start a career before your first single... what a stat!

    Hairston swings at a pitch at his ankles and grounds out. Inning over.
