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:

OK, I've had enough for tonight. Way to go, Snell. Now, tell the reporters how bad you were again and how much you hate losing. That's about the only thing you're good at anymore.

How sad is it when our best starter is Dumatrait?

Snell, Gorzo, Maholm and Duke are pissing me off.

Snell just does not know where his pitches are going. It appears that he is nibbling, but the truth of the matter is just that he has no clue where any pitch is going to wind up. He threw a couple of 2-seam fastballs that would have been good pitches if put in the right spot, but the pitches ran over the middle of the plate. No surprise, both were smoked for base hits.

And walking the bases full when leading 3-0? Words fail me.

That is absolutely true right now. Wow, a waiver wire guy is the best starter, on a team that picked a pitcher first round for 8 straight seasons.

with my experience and desire to be a pitcher as young lad playing baseball, what I'm seeing from Ian Snell is a guy who has lost his arm slot. Watch the video of him throwing the ball the last two years and now this season. The arm isn't the same and before long, he's going to blow his elbow or shoulder because of it.

The whole form is off and that's why he's not reaching 95-97 MPH on his fastball. He's over-thinking by not using his slider enough.

Jeff Andrews needs to get his act together and work with Snell between starts before we lose mini-Pedro to Dr. James Andrews.

I'm sure he'd agree to trade Patterson if he could get Neifi in return.
