I do not have much confidence in Snell right now. The kiss of death when a team signs a player to a long term contract. They end up tanking. Let's go Snell. Start pitching.........BUB! I'm getting very annoyed with his starts.

The Reds are as bad as we are.

Snell was all over the place but he did get 3 strike outs. Not sure how, but we'll sure take them.

Now, come on Bucs.

Thank you Mr. Snell for sucking it up and pounding in some pitches to get some big K's. That's the "old" Ian I know.

Glad I missed that one!!
Now Bautista doubles . . . simply have to get on top and force the Reds to chase. Blew a golden chance in the first. Last thing the Bucs need is for Cueto to start feeling good about himself and settling in. He's all over the place right now.

Paulino get caught watching that ball or was he going hard from the start?

Go figure...Butista and Paulino team up to give Bucs the lead 1-0.
Joggin' Ronny should have stayed at first though :? Do we have a first base coach?

I couldn't tell, but I think he's just that slow.

Griffey threw a perfect one bouncer to the bag. Yeah, he's slow but took talent to throw him out. Not a bad gamble

Cueto is throwing a lot of pitches. Would love to see Jack crank one over the fence..

Xavier Nady owns Jonny Cueto.

Snell is doing a good job. Couple of walks were not great, but he is mixing in his breaking pitches and getting a lot of swings and misses.

Corey Patterson is getting booed mercilessly. Dusty Baker has some type of man-crush on Patterson, but he needs to realize the guy is just not a good hitter.

x-man owns most pitchers this year.

40 RBI's now would total about 130-135 for the year. Not bad for a bench player guys.

Ian the Idiot. Let's walk three batters in an inning and watch them all come around and score and blow a 3-0 lead.

Let's give games away.

I hate WALKS.

Snell is seriously screwed up. Don't know whether the extension has anything to do with it, but he just can't seem to get it right this year. He is hurting the team big time.

The Reds announcers are impossible to listen to. Thank God Cueto is out because I've had enough listening to how un-hittable he is. He is the coming of Sandy freaking Koufax apparently.

I guess 9 hits and 3 walks in 5 innings is considered unhittable in certain circles. :roll:
