"You only have to bat a thousand in two things; flying and heart transplants. Everything else you can go 4-for-5."
Interesting note: All of Votto's HRs have been of the solo variety this season.
It would also help if they could PH for a weak hitter in that situation.
But because they are stuck or we are stuck in the age of 12 man pitching staffs ....because pitchers now are 1/3, 2/3 inning guys or barely go 1 inning or can only be used against LH or not against certain RH..... you end up being a man short.

I don't get why, in the age of heightened awareness of the game, fingers very often get pointed at the guy who makes the last out.
I find it a bit odd that MLB keeps putting up highlights of tonights game, but they resist putting up the play at the plate with Choo/Hanigan.

Sean Marshall is the Reds second best reliever. He's not a loogy. There was no reason he should have been pulled after that cheap infield single last night.
I miss Adam Dunn.

A guy can do his job in this game and have bad results. Keeps me coming back for more and more.
