    Leake had 2nd swiped. Not a chance, fouled off though.

    Braves announcers talking about the umps. Why did they switch from the big chest protector? They said with them the umpire was more in line with the heart of the plate, and the better positioning allowed them to pick up the outside strike zone easier. any ideas? is that even true?

    Good question. Re-post it in the umpire diva thread, George probably has at least SOME insight on it. Or could find out.

    Thus far, neither Choo or Votto have gotten on base today. Surprising to say the least.

    I think that in a year or two, one of these guys - Frazier, Dorn, Valaika, Cumberland, Stubbs - will be ready to replace Dunn. They won't hit as many home runs as Dunn, but they should have similar OPS. - 757690, July 22, 2008

    Alonso will be playing 1B for the REDS and batting 4th one year from today. - Kingspoint, July 9, 2009

    4-3 DP Phillips was on 2nd and just had a step to step on the bag. About the easiest DP will ever see.

    We need to get a RH power bat to hit 4th to counter the lefties.

    One of the easiest double plays I've ever seen.
