If it wasn't for those designer clothes he'd be able to play everyday.
If he wasn't Canadian, he could play a double header everyday.

Per the post on ORG


johnfayman Votto "tweaked" his wrist yesterday on a swing. "I don't think it's serious. Hopefully, I'll be back in soon." #reds

I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't play at all this series. Sure would be nice if Gomes could play some 1B.

He's hit about 44 HR's this season, all against the Reds, or so it has seemed. He's gotten an extra base hit, no kidding, nearly every AB vs the Reds this season, w/ 3 or 4 HR's vs us too.

Yeah. The series the Reds swept in Pittsburgh, it seemed like Cedeno had like 4 of the 7 hits the Pirates had, or something ridiculous like that. He was the only baserunner in Cueto's 1 hitter.

FWIW, Dusty just now said on WLW that Joey's been dealing with a slightly sprained wrist for the past 3 days or so. Happened on a check swing. Asked if he'll only be out for today. "No. It's a day to day thing".

I'm not sure who suggested it, but sending down an OF'er and bringing up Yonder sounds like a solid choice right now...just for insurance. I know it burns an option, but for a guy we most likely won't end up keeping...do we care?

Since Alonso already has a major league contract, IIRC, we would have already burned an option this year already.

Unless, of course, we did a deal with his agent for it not to count as an option year.

I believe it's referred to as the "Wily Mo" clause.

Though for some unexplained reason, we never utilized it there???

While I agree with that idea, I would say we would care, as Alonso would have more trade value with more options. That being said, I don't see any way that he is not brought up in September anyway.

He's on a major league contract, so I'm pretty sure we already used an option in March when we sent him down.

You often wonder about some things. Stubbs and Bruce struggle, probably Bruce worse than Stubbs (if possible), and Stubbs gets benched and no one on the Reds seemed concerned about Bruce. What is the difference? Image or potential talent? I can't figure it out.

Am I the only one who sees a different Cordero since the ASB? It sure seems like it. He's been much better since then. The pitching inside has made a significant difference IMO.
I'm with you.

Although his arm is going to fall off if we keep pitching him like this.

Brantley made a good point earlier that I hadn't thought of. Gomes is sitting at 99 career HR's....since that point, he's struggled. He suggested that he may be trying to force number 100.

Gomes has the Brandon Phillips Syndrome. He did not hustle out of the batter's box. The ball bounced away from the fielder. Gomes should have gotten a triple.

True - but the pick up/drop pretty much was as the ball was landing/1st bounce.

It would not of mattered, if Jonny just busted it out of the box (He normally does). But, Unless thats Stubbs out on 2nd, no one is scoring on that play.
