I predict Votto hits 3 HR's and has 8 RBI's and Reds take 3 of 4 from the Scrubs!

I don't think that's fair. I'm 35 and pretty mature and I'd be pretty pissed off today if I got shafted like I did earlier today. I don't blame him...sure it sucks that he got tossed, but c'est la vie. Can't blame him today.

You can be pissed off but don't do it in a manner that gets you ejected.

Besides with two strikes he needs to be swinging at that.

I think the ump actually was giving him a little leeway in the argument until he threw his helmet.

RedsManRick
07-04-2010, 03:34 PM
That wasn't outside. Even if it was low, that didn't warrant that reaction.

Exactly; the ump was going to let him go until he threw his helmet. Definitely a massive overreaction.

I agree. Votto probably was just boiling from the All-Star snub.

It's never good to have Joey out, but if he is ever going to sit it down today's the day. Let's give him 24 hours to cool down and then he'll start winning games with his bat again.

RBA

Votto deserves to be an All-Star. But he doesn't get a pass for being stupid and taking the Reds best hitter out of a game that could win them the series.

Exactly. Throwing you helmet is a guarantee to get tossed. I thought the ump gave him plenty of rope, he could have tossed him before the helmet toss.

I understand being upset at the absurd All Star snub, but that was not a very mature way of dealing with it. I'd say 'needs to grow up" is a perfect way of describing Votto right there.

Votto is definitely a volcano. We've seen this a few times. He's mostly quiet, but when he blows, look out.

I'll give Votto a pass on this today.

People want a fiery, angry team leader type of a baseball player but this will occasionally happen to a player with that level of intensity. He was wrong, but not many people on here can realistically say they'd be above it.

This is Joey Votto, after all.

RedsManRick

The ump is certainly calling the bottom of the zone. Considering how most umps basically ignore the bottom 3 or 4 inches, it's good to see.

Yea the umpire handled it perfectly. He gave Votto every chance to cool it but Votto didn't want to.

Reds need some positive momentum about now. Maybe that play by Cabrera will help.

Both plays were bang bang. Could have been called either way without much argument. Can't fault the umps on either one, even if they looked safe in super slow mo. And I'd be saying that if they went against the Reds too.

But the Reds did catch a break that they both were called out.

Problem is can't really pinch hit for Leake because the bench is largely in the lineup at this point.

Stubbs with a chance to make two outs in an inning twice in two days.

That's actually great from the Reds perspective.

But Stubbs is no fun, as he raises his OPS to .714.

Yesterday we had 9 runs in the 7th on 3 hits.

Today we have 8 on, inter alia, 5 HR's. And maybe counting.

No one on base, two outs, and two strikes on Phillips.

Then 5 HR's and 8 runs later.....

The Reds are fun to watch.

No, I mean he does it EVERY time a Reds batter swings and misses. It doesnt even matter if it is strike 1, 2, or 3. I know he is finding his legs still as a play by play guy, but this needs to be remedied.

Something that doesn't get the attention it should.....the Reds have the fewest errors in the majors at 30. Minnesota, NYY, San Diego and SF are the only teams WITHIN 10 in the majors. The Cards have 57 as a point of reference.

Add to this the spectacular D of guys like Rolen, Stubbs, Bruce, and Phillips.....and WOW, this team only looks that much better on paper.

Additionally, mental gaffes aren't something that is measured.....but it is apparent that the trend of 10 years has been discontinued for 'unforced errors'.
