    I'm betting Feldman wishes he'd throw the fourth pitch of the at bat out of the strike zone.

    I was thinking earlier about how long it had been since we had a 3 run dinger.
    This game has turned around fast.

    Why in Christ's name is Hanigan looking at back to back strikes with a 3 ball count, a runner on 3rd, and the pitcher on deck.

    And halfway into my sentence Hanny makes me look the fool. Their pitcher looks ridiculous now for peppering all those strikes in there.
    I may not be fast, but I sure am slow.

    Why on earth were they pitching to him, much less giving him a 3-2 cookie? Wow.

    And a pop-fly out, but over 40 pitches that inning and the Reds have a 2-run lead. Nice.

    That's why they are the Cubs.

    Don't get me wrong, Votto is a beast with opposite field power. But Miguel Cabrera is close if not on the same level. And that's hard for me to say because Votto is far and away my favorite player.

    Cool Frazier story there.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Cabrera has to be about the only one. He pulls the ball much more than Votto.

    Hmm, no idea on the answer to the trivia question, but that is interesting to think about, back then, playing a night game for the very first time.

    I 've always heard that Bronson is Catallini's favorite Red. Don't be surprised if something gets worked out.

    Probably so, but I don't get to see him as much as I would like. Judging by the highlights every night, Cabrera is a freak.
    Rounding third and heading for home...

    Re: 5.24.13 Cubs at Reds

    Just joining the game thread. Don't know if this has been covered.

    I can't believe this season how many pitchers, Reds and others, don't know when to throw strikes and don't know when to stay outside the zone.

    Feldman just cannot throw a strike to Hanigan once he falls behind 3-0. Can't believe he threw strikes there, including the very hittable home run pitch.

    Make Hanigan reach for one. If you walk him, you walk him, the pitcher is on deck.

    I've seen this time and again this year. A walk isn't a good outcome but sometimes it's not such a big deal. Just hard to believe he threw that pitch, especially at GABP. Maybe he just missed his spot, I don't know.
