Re: Silver lining to tonight's loss
The point is, if Votto were here, he could be learning from guys like Hatteberg. And, the bench wouldn't have to include Juan Castro as a pinch hitter with the game on the line.
If the BP is full of kids plus Weathers, then they could maybe pitch more than once a week without needing oxygen. So maybe the Reds could carry 11 pitchers. Then dump Moeller and let Conine and Hatteberg bolster the bench.
