Bit of a Sunday special, with Bruce moving to the 2-hole, and Miggy in at 3rd. Bailey called up, Francisco sent down, also.

I'll probably do some PBP.

I don't like Edmonds for Stubbs. For the love of God, put him in left and sit Gomes. I love Bruce in the 2 hole though.

Seems a bit risky for the Reds to try and go the next 2 weeks with Cairo as the only backup IF. Is Cabrera coming back soon?

They're only a phone call away. Just need to confine the double switching to the OF.

Lineup is fine, except Gomes has to start justifying hitting cleanup or fifth. Wouldn't have been surprised to see Nix again, who is better defensively and has been hitting better lately.

Except that phone call can't be made until after the game, and Francisco can't come back up for 10-days unless a position player is DLed.

Lets just hope that neither BP or Janish tweaks anything.

1-1 count, Sanchez threw a high curveball that looked like it was very borderline. The ump called it a strike. Joey was pissed and stepped out of the box while talking under his breath at the ump. The ump then ejected him (with a loud "BOOM" noise for emphasis) before Sanchez threw the next pitch.

Brantly just said that. Jeff said Votto did it exactly the way he is supposed to and all batters do it when they disagree. He says as long as batters disagree under their breath and don't show up the umpire, they should not be tossed.

Also that was the second marginal/borderline strike that was called against him in the AB. An umpire has to understand there may be some disagreement on borderline pitches and Votto has a very good feel for the strike zone. I'm not saying that Votto is completely innocent but that ump just needs to get off his authoritarian high horse...this isn't little league.

A borderline strike is a strike.

As well- we have no idea what Votto said, but for me it doesn't matter if you turn around and say it or you are saying it to his face- if that guy can hear it, it's the same thing.

When you mean as much to the team as Votto does, dial down the hot headedness, keep your mouth shut, and play the game.

Ask Carlos Quentin how much his "intensity" has royally screwed the White Sox.

I like intense players, but if it keeps you off the field, you need to work on directing it in a better fashion.

Im pretty sure, there has been atleast 10 foul balls with 2 strikes....

He's had a lot of 2 and 3 ball counts though. He's doing a great job of baring down and not allowing those batters to walk... but he's definitely gotten behind a few times. Make no mistake, I'm not criticizing the job he's doing thus far, just wish he weren't in line to only go 5 or 6 innings.

Bailey has thrown the ball extremely well today. He's locating on the corners with his curveball and his splitter extremely effectively, and he's generating swings and misses when he goes outside the zone.

This is the Homer Bailey that looked so good down the stretch last year.
