Also I hope the Reds take the momentum from this win and turn it into a really good run. The NL Central is out there for the taking.
You know I am happy......and really not surprised by what Votto did, more really....like it was said...by what Heisey and Stubbs did to get on base. But it is still tempered by the fact I no longer have much faith in this manager in knowing what to do in LF and 3B. He is already talking about how it might be Cairo who gets the playing time at 3B. He said it depends on Frazier and what he does....so Frazier better go 2 for 4 almost every time in order to secure a spot.
The Central is there for them to win but I have no faith in this managers ability to get the most out of these players.
