"Man, the pitch looks fast, even in slow motion." Thom Brennaman on Chapman's fastball.
I don't have a problem with somebody suggesting the Votto contract could be a hinderance, but I don't much care for the way SpiritofStLouis said it and he has previously shown he doesn't have the strongest of filters.
And I have no problem admitting I am a firm believer in the mantra "I can make fun of/criticize/whatever my own team/family/friends, but if somebody else does, I'm defending them with my life." Sign me up for 30 more years of Votto!
"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."

Heisey is OPS'ing about 1.400 since he got back from the DL. It's only nine games, but compared to the rest of the team, he's a beast. Heck, OPS'ing 1.400 is hitting like a beast however one looks at it.
