    Choo actually has slumped during this road trip. His numbers are still so good so people don't focus on it too much.

    Right now, Votto is clearly the team MVP. Which you can say almost any time, it's usually true.

    Scott Rice is leading the league in relief appearances so far. More evidence that big money towards relievers isn't money particularly well spent.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Has anybody done it after Ray? Somebody posted that they thought someone did.

    I may not be fast, but I sure am slow.

    Now Mets are showing Collins and Ike Davis in dugout. Collins might be telling Ike you need to charge the ball and cut off the runner at home. Ike kind of stayed back.

    Interesting telecast.

    You can file this under things I thought I'd never see. Cozart is trending on Twitter.

    I think that fellow mho is always smiling is right up there.
    Sometimes I forget how good BP has been as a Red. Since 2009, Phillips has the 24th highest WAR in all of baseball. Votto is 3rd.

    Lefty specialist. Not a good example.

    Now a lead off single off Latos. Just don't understand why Dusty lets him go longer in this game.

    Pitch count is ok, but it's been a tough, close game. I just wouldn't handle it this way.

    Lead off single to center for Buck.

    If nobody's up yet...I get someone up. If someone IS ready, I go get him if another reaches.

    That was almost a spectacular double play

    Gutsy play there by Hannahan to go to 2nd there. Tough angle.

    Discussing the dugout incident reminds me what Bob Uecker said about the fight between Reggie and Billy Martin (or maybe between themarshmellow salesman and Billy Martin):

    "Just your run of the mill fistfight"
