Two things I want to point out about Carmona. First, as you can see in the picture, he pitches with an arm that is growing out of his back. Second, he has nearly TWICE AS MANY WALKS AS STRIKEOUTS. I yelled that not in honor of our fallen bigdeal, but because the Reds have to, have to, have to be patient today. Force Camona to throw strikes. If he does, then you start swinging. Otherwise take the walk if he'll give it to you. That means more pitches for him and more base runners for us.

Harang - just keep on doing what you keep on doing.

Now show of hands: Who wants to see a 5th win in a row today?
