Now I know why Dave Duncan is a good pitching coach, and Albert Pujols has a consistently high BA.

Any ball hit by a cardinal is a hit.
Any ball hit by an opposing team is an Error.

Seriously the worst was Stubbs hit they called an error when he smoked a ball to Lopez, and calling a play that supposedly made Votto pull his foot a hit. Especially when the guy was out even if Votto didnt pull hte foot. How the heck that's a hit blows my mind.

Yeah. That whole organization is a bunch of Sheisters. I hate them. Whiners and cheaters, all of them.

You guys should go easy on the Cardinals. As young as this Reds team is, StL is in for a lot of years of heartache and disappointment. They will be crying hard enough without you making it worse!!! :thumbup:

Unless there has been a change that I don't know about, ALL teams official scorers are members of the home town press, and they all shade to the home team. They are not paid for this service.

Marty really ripped into the OS for the game that you are talking about during that exact same play. Marty tells it like it is.
