Thought Votto had extra bases off the bat on a nice swing but just a lineout to a well positioned Marte.

He looks a lot better than last week, like night and day.

Three.

yes St. Pauli is the short version of Sankt Pauli and it is a "religious" name... Sankt is the same as saint and Pauli another version for (most likely) Paulus...

St. Pauli is a district in Hamburg called after a church (which was destroyed hundred of years ago but gave the district the name)... It is famous for the Reeperbahn (red light district in Hamburg)

St. Pauli was very popular with sailors from all over the world => calling the beer girl st. pauli made some sense ;)... the club and the fans of the FC St. Pauli are known for their left wing politics..

I don't speak German, though I can sometimes understand a few words and phrases through context. So I figured that Sankt Pauli was probably the German for Saint Paul. I also was aware that the original meaning of "St. Pauli Girls" was in reference to prostitutes and brothel workers.

Is there another umpire whi is worse at calling balls and strikes than Angel Hernandez?

Kc61
04-30-2016, 09:18 PM
Beginning to think the Reds would be better off just trading away all the remaining veterans.

Not sure what these veterans are adding, they can't win a ballgame, they are totally non-competitive.

The Reds gutted the pitching staff, but not the position players. Yet they can't score to save their lives.

It's Angel Hernandez behind home plate so I expect nothing less than a terrible strike zone and erratic calls that make no sense from inning to inning.

With Hernadez behind the plate for all his starts he could have easily made it through into 1975. Strikes are above the letters and outside below at the ankles for Angel.

Tom Servo
04-30-2016, 09:50 PM
Encouraging inning from Cingrani despite two singles to center. He was throwing strikes at 95-96 mph, he just could have stood to mix in the slider a bit more (like to Harrison with two strikes).
