My between inning Star Trek review:

Went with my 7-year-old. He clearly does not know the history. I am 37, while not a Trek fan per se, had seen most of the original movies and enough of the original series on re-run to be considered informed.

Great movie. Highly recommend it. You don't have to be a Trekkie to really appreciate it, the story makes sense, I thought the acting solid, and the effects were amazing.

Two Reds caps up to that one.

Please don't jump to conclusions, WV. It's been nice to see, but that is a series of bloops and seeing eye singles that have fallen in to help make this happen. In no way, shape, or form is Phillips and Votto's absence responsible for lady luck favoring the Reds in those balls falling in...

Cueto has thrown 98 pitches, the Cardinals started hitting him last inning, and the pitchers spot is due up now with a runner on second. Looks like he's hitting. I'd pull him.

Edit - I forgot about the short bench. Good decision to allow Cueto to bunt there.

reds44
05-08-2009, 10:19 PM

Just put Gonzalez on the DL and ride Janish's hot bat.

He's their best option at getting a bunt down, and he saves the few bats still on the bench, just in case...
