were you surprised? i called it as soon as weathers toed the rubber. there were too many factors involved:

the likelihood of the reds winning a series vs. the cardinals
the fact that weathers actually stinks
the busch phenomenon: different park, same city, virtually the same team, and the same fans
the fact that we shouldn't even have taken the lead (we took the lead thanks to juan enc's gaffe in right field) in the first place.
the fact that bronson arroyo and rick white forgot that you can't pitch up to right-handed power hitters, especially in parks featuring winds blowing out to left.

we didn't deserve that win.

it would have been entertaining, nonetheless.

HAHAHA...don't know if you watched/heard that game, but that would've been disastrous...
Not sure if you remember, Coffey started the inning by giving up hits to the first three hitters he faced (the three worst hitters in their lineup!!) and was bailed out from a BS thanks to Javy bailing him out my throwing out a runner...weathers at least had to face the heart of their order - he had his work cut out for him...
coffey got lucky, and he's not that good...

For those of you who picked the Reds to be last in the central (including espn and si)...i hate all of you, and you are wrong...

you keep throwing it out there, i'll keep bouncing it back: coffey's better than weathers. he's younger, of course, so he's still learning, but he's got more heat and a better closer's mentality. weathers is a good set-up guy.

thursday night, for instance:
from the enquirer
Coffey entered in the eighth inning with runners at first and second and one out.

He struck out former Red Juan Encarnacion on three pitches.
That brought up Albert Pujols, maybe the world's best hitter.
Coffey's first pitch to Pujols was a 96 mph fastball for a strike.
Pujols eventually grounded one up the middle. Second baseman Tony Womack made a diving stop, but had no play.
Up next was Jim Edmonds with the bases loaded.
Coffey struck him out with an 87 mph slider on a 3-2 count.
That got the game to Weathers.

If Wagner could learn to throw a strike, he'd make a great closer, but that never ceases to be a problem with the Reds...
