"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.
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.
