    Reds are now 37-37, with a 3 game series against Chicago coming up. We really should be 40-37 after this series. GO REDLEGS!

    And for the first time all year the Reds are over .500 (38-37) with a 6-1 win over the Cubs thanks to a grand slam by Devin Mesoraco who despite missing some games is still playing like the best catcher in baseball, batting .315 with 13 HR's and 38 RBI's.

    I am going to have to disagree, since the Reds have gotten healthy we have been playing a lot better than Pittsburgh has at any point this year, and are currently 40-38 with a 5-0 lead over the Giants as we speak. The Reds are a ton better than their record indicates, but health derailed us early in the year.

    Cutch, Watson, and JHay all made the All-Star roster for the Bucs!

    They're only 4-4.5 back of the Brewers now I believe.

    The worst thing about the MLB is that you simply cannot find where to watch it in Europe
    Tonight, all flags must burn, in place of steeples.

    Stow jury absolves Frank McCourt


    Stow Family Happy With Verdict

    LOS ANGELES -- A San Francisco Giants fan who suffered brain damage in a beating in a Dodger Stadium parking lot won his negligence lawsuit Wednesday, with a jury agreeing that the Dodgers didn't provide adequate security and were partly to blame for the attack.

    Bryan Stow's father said his son probably wouldn't understand the details of the settlement that will give him about $14 million from the Dodgers, "but Bryan will know that he got some help today."

    "He's not going to be 100 percent, maybe for a long time, maybe never. What he gets is going to help him through now, and that's what he needs," Dave Stow said.

    The jury delivered its verdict in a Los Angeles courtroom after weeks of testimony about the assault after the opening day game in 2011 between the rival teams.

    L.A. Superior Court Judge Victor Chavez presided over the Bryan Stow trial, which ended in an $18 million jury decision for Stow.
    Stow, 45, was left with disabling brain damage and became a symbol of violence at sporting events. He was in the courtroom for part of the trial, his wheelchair positioned front and center so jurors could see the ghastly scars on his head where his skull was temporarily removed during efforts to save his life.

    Experts testified that the former Northern California paramedic Stow will never work again and has suffered repeated strokes and seizures. They said he will require around-the-clock care.

    Lawyers for Stow claimed the team and former owner Frank McCourt failed to provide adequate security. In split decisions, jurors found that the Dodgers were negligent but absolved McCourt. In civil cases, only nine of 12 jurors must agree on the verdict.

    The Dodgers "did have a (security) plan but somewhere along the line that plan broke. And it needed to be fixed," juror Carlos Munoz said after the verdict. "Hopefully we helped to fix it. ... If you're going to own a stadium, do it right."

    Jurors determined that Stow suffered about $18 million in damages in the form of lost earnings, medical expenses and pain and mental suffering. The Dodgers must pay $13.9 million of that because while finding the team negligent, jurors assigned it only a portion of the responsibility for Stow's harm.

    Stow's attackers shared the rest of the responsibility for Stow's harm, jurors determined. However, they weren't sued and so cannot be required to pay a share of the damages.

    Stow's parents pronounced themselves satisfied with the jury's award even though it is less than half of what they had sought.

    "We'll make it work for him," said Stow's mother, Ann Stow.

    The defense had argued that security was stronger than ever at an opening day contest and contended that Stow was partially to blame because he was drunk.

    But jurors were unanimous in deciding that Stow's own negligence wasn't a substantial factor in causing his harm. Stow's mother said she held her husband's hand as the court read that part of the verdict form.

    "I was so ecstatic because we know our son and we know that the picture the defense was trying to portray was not Bryan at all," Ann Stow said.

    They said they had not spoken to their son, who did not attend the hearing, but did talk to his sisters and expected they would talk to him.

    In San Francisco, Giants manager Bruce Bochy said he was happy for the family that there was finally a verdict.

    "What happened shouldn't have happened. We have to keep that in mind. But also for the fans coming to the ballpark, you need the proper security," he said. "It shouldn't be a situation where you're afraid to go to a game or you can't enjoy yourself."

    Dodgers fans Louie Sanchez and Marvin Norwood pleaded guilty to the attack in criminal court after a lengthy preliminary hearing in which witnesses said security guards were absent from the parking lot where Stow was attacked.

    The complicated civil case even threw jurors at one point, who announced last week that they were deadlocked. The judge ordered them to resume deliberations.

    "They struggled through it," Dana Fox, an attorney for the Dodgers, said after the verdict. "Remember, after four days they had not found liability on the part of the defendants. That is quite telling, I think, in and of itself."

    In the wake of the attack, the Dodgers and Los Angeles police increased their security at games, including adding more patrols and undercover officers wearing rival team jerseys.

    Wow the Reds offense has really gone down the drain minus Votto and Phillips, we are only 5 out of the division, but we need to bring in another bat or hope we can get out of this funk.

    Giancarlo Stanton is a gosh damn monster. 470ft bomb and a sweet diving catch. And also another homerun.

    Can't wait until the post season. A, because it is the post season, and B, because Jeter will finally be gone.

    So a guy at the World Series game between the Giants and Royals is wearing a Marlins jacket and sitting right behind home plate. How did he go to the closet before heading down to the park and decide that was the thing to wear to this game?

    Deosn't seem to be much excitement about the Giants winning it. I'm not a fan of either team but I also don't dislike either of them. As a fan of baseball in general, I thought it was one of the better World Series matchups and the games were entertaining. Plus we got an all time great Series MVP performance out of Bumgarner that will be looked at for a long time as the gold standard for World Series pitching. Not bad at all.

    Winning 3 out of 5 World Series in this day in age is insane. Good for the Giants. They moved to SF in 1958 and didn't win a WS until 2010, but now they have all of the sudden won 3 of 5. They are the model for creating a champion - build a nasty farm system with premier young talent and add a couple of cherry on top outside vets like Hunter Pence. This is what the Yankees used to do. Then they got obsessed with signing guys on the wrong side of 30 and paying a bajillion dollars for their decline. All the while, the farm system has gone to hell. Inexcusable.

    I saw a Cubs - Giants game in San Francisco in 2008. Beautiful ballpark.

    As a RedSox fan - I think what they're doing is fine.

    Being GM of the NY Yankees somehow is the easiest tenure in professional sports. The owners are too busy going over balance sheets with their accountants to really care.

    But after watching teams like the Giants and Cardinals, the state of the Yankees farm system in recent years should be a fireable offense given the resources that they have.
