  1. I didn’t like what Rosecrans said about Reds fans last fall. But I also don’t like what Phillips did. Rosecrans was just doing his job. In fact, he’s doing it in a way that the other beat writers won’t by asking some slightly uncomfortable questions of the players and managers. Isn’t that what we clamor for? We want the beat writers to be more than just PR organs for the team.

    If we want the beat writers to do some serious reporting, we can’t fail to support them in a situation like this.

    Phillps’ behavior was totally unprofessional. Like a spoiled brat. All smiles until someone questions him a bit. BP gets more good press than any other individual on the team.

    • Phillps’ behavior was totally unprofessional. Like a spoiled brat. All smiles until someone questions him a bit.

      In the video Baker looked like he was crapping his pants.

    • @Steve Mancuso: Agree with this analogy.

      Good thing Wacha didn’t start this game. Shutting the Reds down so far. Maybe the intensity level has dipped a litle too.

    • @Steve Mancuso: Nice to see any Red showing some emotion. I’m real good with it as long as it wasn’t physical. BP strikes me as a good guy with a big heart. Would be surprised if BP does not apologize to Trent in the next day or two. I believe it is more about the last couple of games and BP was just set off.

    • @Steve Mancuso: I’m with you, and C. Trent. BP needs to grow up. There’s noting wrong about a reporter asking or writing something about a meaningful aspect of the game.

  2. I sure wish Jocketty wouldn’t have passed on Wacha, he’d be nasty in our bullpen right now, not to mention our future rotation

  3. If Homer gets through 8 just under 100, I think I’m OK with him attempting the 9th on a short leash. Beyond that, I say 100 is the max, a little bullpen work, and a day off tomorrow.

    Anybody have any thoughts?

    • @msanmoore:
      Chapman needs some work. If he does not get a shot today its a whole week between appearances and 1 in 9 days.

  4. Just posted the second Game Thread. We’re trying to prevent the service failures we’ve been having. Worked pretty well last night.

    Let’s move the fun over there.

    Nice play by Cozart.

  5. Marlon Byrd puts the game out of reach for the Brewers. I bet PIT thinks they struck gold with that trade.

    Gave up two prospects in the Pirates top 20 to get them though.

  6. Hits for everybody but Frazier, Hannigan, and … Votto (who we don’t pay to walk, right?)

  7. Won’t the winning WC team play the Braves while the central winner will play the Dodgers?

  8. There’s was an interesting article in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that had a lot of quotes from Dusty about last nights fiasco. The article titled “Poor Play vs Cardinals Frustrates Players” You can get the story off the front page of Sports Section. (Sorry, but I don’t have the skills to post a link). Go Reds!!!!

  9. Was listening to ESPN Radio this afternoon while driving and they were discussing who was going to win the Central. Well, the announcers were still considered it a toss-up as a few thought the Cards would take it while a few of ESPN die-hards thought Dusty would lead the Reds to the Division title. I almost drove off the road and into a ditch. I said what – ‘Dusty will find a way’? Have they watched the Cards simply manhandle the Reds this season? ESPN stated this was a must win for the Reds in August – you think the Red’s players heard them say that?

    Maybe they have some gumption after all. As it is, I just got in a little while ago and saw the score of 9-0. Who are those players in the Reds uniforms? And what happened to the scoreboard? And where are they holding the tied up and gagged Red’s starters ?
