    I got the ESPN notification of the final at 1:41 a.m. Really?

    On this team with no playoff hopes, I am good with giving Homer 4 or 5 starts to show me he is back while giving Sal a chance to step back and try to find something that will help him move forward.
    I saw some stats today on Romano and overall he has pitched well over his last 7 starts. Also read some comments that indicate the Reds might go to a 6 man rotation. I think a six man rotation is worth trying for a team like the Reds trying to find and groom starting pitchers. It saves innings for the young pitchers and gives more starters a chance to prove themselves.

    Did not know Blandino tore his ACL last night. That is very bad luck.

    Please explain why the Reds pitchers throw so many pitches in the dirt.

    Harvey wants to stay in Cincy apparently.

    Second half of the season starting off like the first. Let's hope a total meltdown doesn't take place.

    One of the shows yesterday were talking say very little market for him. It would make sense he tries to sign and get what he can if that is the case.

    Considering the number of runs they have let score off the bounced pitches id say they need a new plan.

    Ever since they announced the return of Bailey, the starting rotation has been awful. Not a coincidence. Dude is a cancer.

    Okay, not really the reason they sucked this weekend but I still don't like the guy.

    That should take care of any illusion that anyone had of a wild card run. Now they need to get rid of any assets that are not part of the longterm plan. Sell. Sell. Sell.

    That reminds me of this famous scene.
