    Reds are in trouble. My dad, Chip, and I will be at the game. Expect a blowout

    Please, someone try to explain to me why Dusty insists on playing Corky so much?
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    You wouldn't want Mes to actually get comfortable as a starting catcher, dude.

    I argued otherwise in the past, but I'm beginning to think Baker had zero say in Mesoraco's inclusion on the roster. For whatever reason, he refuses to give him regular playing time.

    I am starting to agree.

    Come on guys. Everyone knows it was Mez's fault that Arroyo gave up 4 runs in 5 innings...and that Ondrusek served up those taters.

    Mes has started 11 out of the 17 games since Hanigan was hurt. That's 65%. That's about what most starting catchers start in MLB.

    I think the "whatever reason" may be reflected by Mes' slugging percentage.

    Of course, I don't know why Miller is on the roster, so either way I'm stumped.

    Reds going with a lot of lefty hitters against the righty tonight, hope it works out, Paul, Hannahan, Votto, Choo, Bruce. Fine with me.

    Compared to Miller or Hanigan? Mes' BB% and K% are fine and his LD% has improved since last year. I would say Mesoraco has been BABIP unlucky. His first few games he scorched a lot of balls directly at defenders. Those fall for hits and his rate stats look a whole lot better with such a small sample size.
