    Bailey if you can get it done.

    Bailey. But for me, the question will be do either of them want to stay here long term. I get the feeling that neither do. I hope I'm wrong.

    Just curious...but I get a totally different vibe from both...from where do you get that impression?

    Lucky there. Choo steals 2nd...the throw beat him easily though. Kicked away from Castro and Choo heads to third.

    Choo looked back on the steal too....hit and run?

    Sac fly for Cozy. 4-0 Reds.

    I think I've read Bailey say as much, as pitching at GABP must be maddening. But why wouldn't Choo want to stay?

    Without any real evidence my personal feeling is Choo would love to stay and Bailey is like Votto, he will stay in the price is what he feels is fair.

    2 things. Homer has said previously how frustrated he is playing in GABP. It's also well known how much he loves the south. I think the ace in the hole for us is the fact that he's really growing up under the tutelage of Price. Maybe that'll help the Reds.

    As for Choo...Boras. I think it's pretty clear that he wants Choo to test the market. If it's a bidding war, the Reds lose.

    Again, I hope like crazy that I'm wrong. But if it comes to a choice between the 2, I always lean towards the pitcher.

    Votto started off the season mastering the walk. Then he moved on to mastering the single. Now he's in the process of mastering the double.

    Votto now 14-38 on the road trip.

    I hope he skips the triple and masters the homer.
