    Well...we have the guys coming up that we want up in situations like this. Let's hope they can pull it together. It would be a nice time for Votto to put a good swing on.
    I see great things in baseball. It's our game.

    Personally, I think Votto needs a mental day off. He seems to be really pressing. Despite what we may think...he's actually NOT a machine. :O)

    Based on how accurate his post have been in the few pages of this thread I have seen I would be very confident of our chances knowing he thinks it won't happen.

    Should have started back in the 7th - clearly we won't get good value in trade now!

    Chapman's body language looked a little funny. Like he had a twinge.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    I'd take issue with this. Hanigan's numbers have steadily declined in recent seasons. He had a .703 OPS last year.

    When you look at his splits, he really doesn't hit righty pitching much at all. He had a .685 OPS in 2011, .661 in 2012, against righty pitching.

    I think the argument that defense is the main job of a catcher (with offense not being that important) doesn't hold up.

    The best players at every position both hit and field their position. I don't think catcher is any different.

    Sure, a catcher has to play good defense but if he can't hit right handed pitching it seriously hurts his value.

    Oh, but that 1-0 pitch to Cozart is a strike?
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    I'm guessing that sitting around in 30 degree weather for 8 innings isn't helping him much.
