fun facts

• Zambrano extends his scoreless innings streak at Great American Ball Park to 29 innings (yes, I usually hate this type of stat too … it’s one of those who-really-keeps-track-of-this stats like you’d see on SportsCenter … but it does say something about how he’s dominated here) and I’m amazed at how many game stories this didn’t make it into (AP, MLB.com, Cincinnati.Com, etc.). I know he notched his 100th career win and talked about his future and stuff afterwards but 29 consecutive innings is a figure that’s tough to overlook. Was it not in the pre-game notes?

• Here’s one I heard during pre-game … Ryan Hanigan leads all rookies in batting average and on-base percentage. Wow.

• The latest head-scratcher … and I felt like we really OMGave the Reds a pass on not bringing up Jonny Gomes for McDonald two weeks earlier than they did but that’s history … Willy Taveras has now missed, what, five of the last six games? WHY NOT put him on the DL and call up Drew Stubbs?

    On Stubbs… maybe it's just the small sample that I've seen him (when Louisville has played the Mud Hens here in Toledo) but he really doesn't look ready to play centerfield in the major leagues.

    The Reds haven't played with a full roster in a LONG time.
