    Nice job by Cordero. Thankfully that call didn't come back to hurt them. Volquez picks up win #17.

    You know, you could watch the first inning of this game, fall asleep, and wake up about the time Weathers came on and not missed much of anything (except Joey getting robbed). Of course you'd have to live through the total nail-biting performance of Cordero each and every time he comes in, but it's a win.

    Oh, my kingdom for some offense (and better umpires).

    BTW, what good is instant replay if they don't have closeup camera angles? I mean, that shot they were using to determine the HR stunk. If that's the case, no call be ever be overturned. The NFL uses several camera angles and closeups, but in MLB, all you get is Fox's feed which usually is horrible.

    This team is just flat-out getting it done lately. Good pitching does wonders, doesn't it?

    I agree. In real speed, it is obvious it hit a seat.

    Well, at least it didn't matter.

    Great win for the Reds.

    8 of 11 (sub 3 earnie over that period), 16 of 23 for the Reds. I thank them for making my September a little more exciting than I thought it would be a month ago.

    Absolutely. This team has been fun to watch over the last month.

    What an excellent start by Volquez. After watching him in the first inning I didn't think he had a chance to make it past five innings tonight. He wasn't commanding his pitches well and was constantly above the belt. After the first inning he settled down and had excellent command the rest of the night. This kid is going to be special.

    I thought I saw a report that they were going to do this? Or is this something they'll put into play next year? Or, maybe I'm dreaming and never heard this at all

    He already is, OBM. Let's just hope he can maintain his specialnace for many years. That's always a problem. Who would have thought that Harang would be 6-16 and Volquez 17-6? Strange.

    Saw the Votto 'single' on the news, and the only thing I can think of is that whatever replay the umps got a look at was from another game.

    I predicted before the season that Volquez would be the Reds best starter by the end of the season. I truly believed that but I never expected him to be *this* good so soon.

    That's a good point that I hadn't thought of or noticed.
