    Choo two for two, driving in two.

    I love Choo.

    Don't get too excited about the SB. That catcher had nothing on his throw...does he have a noodle arm or was that just a misfire?

    I can't think of another deal that has worked so well, so quickly, so consistently as Choo.

    Absolutely but until that changes which, of course, it inevitably will. Have to always look across a body of work. Sometimes we (me very much included) focus on current game/current week too much. So far though, Choo has been a godsend for this team. Looking for another (hello, JV? JB? CH?) to step up for a few weeks or more to keep us at the top of the standings.

    Now let's hold and build upon this lead!

    Not too excited. Just giving the barest of credit. Heisey's never going to be a 40HR guy so he needs to be a better OBP guy. And if he can steal a few dozen bases or more, that'd justify a starting role imho. Big if, though. Why I haven't been an advocate of him batting so high in the batting order or every day.

    Boneheaded move on the bases by Choo....but considering what he's already done with the bat...he gets a pass. :O)

    If you're looking for CH to step up and keep the Reds at the top of the standings, I assume the Reds have traded for Chase Headley.
