Another game tonight? Man, seems like the Reds play every day.

Aaron Harang is on the mound, so that’s a good thing, but if the team can’t hit, what does it matter? They wasted a very nice start by Johnny Cueto yesterday. Hope the same thing doesn’t happen with Harang today.

Discuss it here….

  1. Chad, I thought Arroyo was pitching tonight?

  2. Hopper up, Bailey sent down

  3. Looks like Dusty is trying to shake up the lineup with votto leading off.

  4. Obviously, Arroyo is pitching. I’m a moron.

  5. Wow, Dusty has CP batting 7th instead of Votto so maybe there is hope. I wonder if someone finally pointed to the obvious or Dusty figured it out on his own? Either way Dusty sure does learn slow.

  6. I can’t imagine Dusty figured it out on his own, after all this time.

  7. Why isn’t Hopper playing and leading off?

  8. Cabrera hits into a double play. Man, the Reds have had the worst 2-hitters this season of any team in the history of baseball.

  9. sadly, it almost makes it worse that dusty finally moved cp down in the order. before i thought there was a .0000001% chance that he saw something there that i didn’t, or at least that he was crazy, and sometimes having a crazy manager can be fun.

    but now he’s sort of just admitted that he’s a stubborn idiot who had too much pride to admit a mistake.

    good thing we still have cabrerra hitting second though!

  10. EE!

  11. BRUUUUUCE!!!

  12. Nice grab

  13. Bruce is busy in the outfield tonight

  14. So I presume Fogg is starting in place of Bailey this weekend. We need to nickname him “The Cat.” He has nine lives in terms to returning to the rotation.

  15. Ugh, Fogg. I hope the rumors of Daryl Thompson are true. At least he has a chance of being better than Fogg.

  16. If it is going to be Thompson then they need to stop playing roster games and get him up here so he can be acclimated to the big leagues. Sending him out cold turkey into Yankee Stadium just isn’t real smart.

    Besides Dick Pole needs to work on his mechanics.

    🙄

  17. Griffey ditched the Philly series. He’s worthless.

  18. How about a new bobblehead where Junior is sitting on a toilet with his head in a bucket?

  19. Firefox users – Version 3 came out yesterday.

  20. Does version 3 offer any new features of note?

  21. Sorry guys. I fot out again. I’ll do better next time.

  22. It seems faster, It has a feature called the Awesome Bar. Remembers settings such as zoom from use to use.

    Video of features

  23. The new Firefox is supposed to be faster, and manage its memory use a lot better.

  24. Meanwhile, Arroyo is getting bled to death by papercuts. Single runs allowed in four separate innings now.

  25. Dusty now needs to address the #2 spot. Cabrera doesn’t belong there.

  26. JB looks like he might be getting adjusted.

  27. Table is set, AD. Clean your plate.

  28. Conveniently, they didn’t show the OBP with runners in scoring position.

  29. Adam Dunn needs a day off

  30. Encore, Edwin?

  31. This team is pathetic no matter what way you cut it, they suck

  32. I was up next, and I was all set to hit a homer if EE got on. I’m good against lefties.

  33. I suppose Dunn might walk when he bats in the eight so that OBP stays above .400. That’s all that really matters

  34. OBP’s not important. Mine’s .226 and Dad, I mean Dusty, keeps playing me everyday.

    Or maybe it’s because of those nude photos I’m blackmailing him with.

  35. Haven’t downloaded Firefox 3 yet. I heard there are still lots of bugs. True?

  36. What good does it do for Patterson to be a “burner” if he takes the wrong routes constantly?

  37. Will the Reds have any runners in scoring position the remainder of the game? Currently they are 23rd in MLB.

    I love it!!! Baker PH’s for Patterson and Hoppy gets a hit.

  38. By burner they meant I smoke a lot of pot.

    Hey, Dusty pinch hit for me! No fair!

  39. That explains the “dazed and confused” look.

    😀

  40. Wonder if the Reds would play better if they smoked some weed?

  41. If nothing else, it might increase the Bronson Arroyo’s consumption of JTM beef ho-oagies.

  42. Paul Bak-o does play for the team.

    😀

  43. Might change the assortment of advertisers as well. Hostess cupcakes might become a major sponsor.

    😀

  44. Not to mention a major shift in promotional items.

  45. Man! Losing sucks.

  46. Just think. Next year the Reds slogan can be something like a “Decade of Losing.”

  47. Am I hallucinating? Gary “Daddy” Majewski’s ERA is now 3.00.

  48. If you haven’t seen Majewski’s Wikipedia photo, check it out. It’s awesome:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gary_Majewski

  49. What a play, BP!

  50. That IS a great Majewk Man photo.

  51. I am so sick of this losing crap. Basically, we’re the Pirates. Losing season after losing season.

  52. That’s a good photo for Gary M. Cheeky!

    I’ve gotta say, this team is pretty boring the past few weeks.

  53. Hopper is clogging up the bases

  54. I’m thinking of making that Majewski photo my desktop wallpaper if I can ever compel myself to replace my Corey Patterson desktop wallpaper.

  55. They say Hopper is starting tomorrow.

  56. Hope Hopper doesn’t clog ’em up tomorrow

  57. This team hits like they are clog-a-phobic.

  58. I think I’ll make some Sorry Outterson toilet paper
