1) Stubbs is told to swing away, but as soon as he gets 2 strikes he must attempt a bunt. Hey, if he's going to strike out I would rather see him with the bat in the hitting zone.
2) Latos blows up a few times and get a few games suspended. Only starts about 25 games. He still has an above .500 record.
3) Starter Chapman pitches well after the Reds finally says enough is enough with Bailey and his 2 -10 record at the all star break.
4) Fransico proves to be the better, healthier and future 3B with a hurt Rolen most of the season.
5) Reds win the wild card and win 2 games, but still love in the opening series to the ......Marlins.
