"Definitely, after a night like last night, we wanted to build on that as a team. The bottom line was that I didn't do my job."

Injury setback shocker: Nick Johnson done for the year. Well, it's not official yet, but you know as well as I do that it's coming. Really feel bad for the guy. He's off to the Mayo Clinic on Monday to get his wrist looked at.
We refuse acknowledge Daryl Thompson's start yesterday at Yankee Stadium. Here's a quote for you, though, and we'll move on: "...Amazingly, Washington insiders said Thompson was included in the deal because he had major shoulder surgery in 2005 (torn labrum) and Bowden didn't think he would last. As one Bowden acquaintance said, 'Bowden thought he was sticking it to the Reds with Thompson.'" In the end, poor Wayne Krivsky may get the last laugh over "The Trade."
