    6/14/13 - Reds vs. Brewers: Votto's Day Off

    "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."

    now at a robust.163 BA, would Hanigan still have his #1 catcher job if he was batting .100?

    Re: 6/14/13 - Reds vs. Brewers: Votto's Day Off

    In 2012, Votto's 1st off-day was 5/30. Slash line of .325/.463/.598/1.060. After the next 25 games, it was .354/.476/.639/.1.114.

    Within those 25 games, he reached base in 23 of them. Also within those 25 games, hitting streaks of 8 games and 9 games. I stopped at 25 games, because the 26th game is the one we'd all like to forget about in San Francisco.

    I didn't go back and look at previous years, but I bet you find something similar. The guy is incredible after his batteries have been recharged. He's a machine.

    Not sure tonight's start is a fair test of that, given that Mesoraco caught 14 innings yesterday.

    And still Hanigan's OBP is higher than Cozart's...

    I'm glad Joey is finally getting a day off (especially tonight since I won't be home and can't watch the game anyway, LOL).

    An MLB.com reporter asked what one thing Votto couldn’t do. “I can’t skate or play hockey,” Votto said. “Well, I can skate ... but I can’t stop.”

    Hmmmm....Heather won't be home, and Joey isn't playing. Coincidence?
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    I am not saying it is a bad lineup at all. But without Votto and the other switches it looks like someone drew names out of a hat.

    I am. That 6 thru 9 is pretty brutal, and Robinson doesn't help either.



    Watch them put up 12 runs.

    I would have given him yesterday off since it was a road game, and the series was already won.....but that's just me (since it went 14 though, there's a chance he would done more than just pinch hit).

    He needs it though. Hopefully it kicks him back into gear.

    Hanigan has a very low BABIP, maybe things will turn around for him.

    Tonight's line-up makes me appreciate the name Votto being in it most every other night.

    Isn't Lohse pitching? Did they substitute a lefty?

    Not sure I understand sitting Votto and XPaul against a tough righty. Votto does hit everyone but against RHP he's 200 points higher in OPS this year.

    Just like Cozart sat against a lefty this week.

    I do agree that both Joey and XPaul did not look their best yesterday. Maybe that's the reason.

    And also, Hannahan doesn't hit lefties much. So if he's the backup, it may explain why Joey would sit and Jack would play v. a righty.

    And Dusty doesn't like Paul against crafty types, he likes him against fastball pitchers.

    Whatever, I'm sure there's a reason for it.

    That's it. Lohse throws that change-up quite a bit.

    And Votto did look gassed yesterday.
