    Blast into left center by Choo for a base hit.

    (Is that the "woo" I'm hearing?)

    Mesoraco is a below .700 OPS hitter. He just hit into a double play that might have cost a run. He's a big shot prospect, first draft choice, highly touted. He's not showing much so far. I think he warrants some mention too.
    It's hard to get in a groove when you play every 3rd or 4th day. The bench players have the toughest job, never knowing if or when they'll play.

    i was at the game after Homer's no-no last year where Leake pitched a great game which was ruined when McCuthen hit a walkoff off of Broxton that still hasn't come down. be careful.

    See, here's where I think guys like Mesoraco get special treatment around here as beloved Reds prospects.

    Mesoraco hsa 344 PAs as a Red. .649 OPS. He's had far more opportunity as a Red than guys like Izturis or Hannahan. Yet Devin gets "leeway".

    Izturis and Hannahan are veteran players who have had success in the major leagues. They aren't good hitters, but Hannahan hasn't been terrible over 8 years. Izturis is strictly a defender but good enough to play for many years. And as a starter.

    Mesoraco is a kid, I understand, but at some point he has to show something more.

    Folks blame Dusty. Well what happened to earning playing time via performance?

    At some point, maybe not quite yet, but soon -- Mesoraco's performance will be attributable to Mesoraco.

    Cozart executes a good sacrifice bunt to bring Choo to second.

    In defense of the fans here, nobody has picked on Juan castro lately.

    Huge insurance run there.

    Well, obviously you're pretty strong yourself if neither of those are your weakness. Which, I'm assuming they aren't, or at least, they aren't strong enough to tempt you onto there, or else you'd already be there.


    And yeah, 2-0 Reds. Nice insurance run with Votto's hit.

    Yeah, but when you pick on Cozart, you pick on Juan. Golden hands.

    Votto with an RBI single, 2-0.

    if there were no blackouts there-- I'd lose and I was lying to them!

    I understand your point. I'm not favoring Mes because he was a top pick, but because he has hit the ball better than Hanigan this year. Yes, they both have not done well, but Hanny is worse right now. We need some offense from the bottom of the order, and right now, I think Mes is better.
