    Wipe off the table in the meeting room and push in the chairs after the Reds' board gets together.

    I'll tell you one thing they don't pay him to do: walk.

    I'll tell you another thing they don't pay him to do: clog the clubhouse drains with his fancy imported hair gel.

    Bring the fancy coffee.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    AS FOR THE MECHANIC... i.e. Votto. Anyone else think heís simply being too fine up there? Vottoís eye is unmatched, unless itís by his patience. But there are times to be patient, and there are times to hack. You do not want your $17 Mil Man up there w/RISP, walking all the time. He is not paid to lead the world in OBP. Itís a nice facet of his game. Itís not what will keep the offense humming. Maybe when presented with a chance to drive in a few, Votto can swing at that belt-high fastball an inch off the plat

    I remember in 1985...Parker got off to a slow start through April. Had a .300 Average, when i still thought BA meant more....but he was not driving anyone in...and I said to my friend "Parker was brought in to drive in runs." Well..he did...and big time that year, but it helped that Milner and Redus started getting on base in front of him and they moved Davey down in the order.
