    I would have bunted. The way I read it you are calling my (would-be) decision stupid.

    DP ends the inning. Reds need to hit the baseball.

    And another nice job getting out of trouble, but now we need to avoid more trouble and get some runs.

    Can't argue this.

    Arroyo typically works pretty fast. Lots of shake-offs, lots of step-offs and yes a lot of balls right down the can tonight...

    I mean kind of I guess, although I think you're going a little out of the way to make it a personal thing.

    I just think that when you're trying to give away an out, it's almost always going to result in that happening. At least with the pitcher hitting, there's at least a chance of successfully advancing the runner and having more than one chance to drive him in.
    They don't think it be like it is, but it do.

    It's hard when you start the inning with an automatic out. Prove me wrong, Zach, please.

Before we had the Frazier/Francisco thing settled...he's a guy I thought the Reds should've gone after. It was pretty obvious that the Astros were selling off everybody. He hadn't really broken out yet as it were, but if you watched him day in and day out you could see it. I'll be shocked if Francisco ever pushes him out of the starters role.

    Reds' 2-3-4 are due up, with two righties. Good time to scratch one across.
