Weather-wise, it looks like it will be clear for a few hours; but there are storms coming into Indiana that look like they have Cincy in their path.

We're getting nailed up here in central Ohio. Lost power a couple of times.

But it 'paid off' despite the fact that it shouldn't have and was a terrible idea to begin with. But since it 'worked', its going to keep happening.

But why? If he gets it to the third base line its a hit. If he doesn't he makes pitcher field ball and he gets Cabrera to 2nd with Votto and Rolen up next.

Not to mention the pink elephant in room. Hochevar threw complete game 3 hit, 1 run, 79 pitch game against team last year. I'm sure they expect tough low scoring game. I am not for bunting 2nd place hitters, but in this instance it was smart play by Phillips.

Still a dumb idea. He's the hottest bat going, he doesn't need to keep the defense honest.

Way to be extra casual there O-Cab and BP. Terrible. I can't stand loafing and hot dogging. That was awful. BP acted like a cripple was running down the first base line. Just completely inexcusable and I am one of BP's biggest defenders on this board.

Ump made the right call. And BP should be pulled from the game for that BS.

I should have added a smiley and written it ou/fe ... But he did end up with the right call.

I think Phillips feels so at ease in the field that it allows him to make plays no one else would think of, but it also to lollygag at times.

He had a great AB the previous one....was patient and did not swing at everything. Why he has to swing at the 2nd pitch by some guy he never sees?

I'd let him swing since Stubbs whiffs a good amount. If Stubbs made more contact I'd see the rationale for the bunt.

Marty made a nice point. If Bruce bunts (successfully)...they'll walk Stubbs and it leaves it up to Cario or Janish. I'd prefer it be in Jay's hands instead.
