    X-Man needs to PH for Robinson if Choo gets on
    "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."

    Cause they just walk him. Why pitch to Votto with 2 outs. Why would any manager even pitch to him.
    Yes that was a very impressive infield single. I thought for a second it was leaving the yard. - texasdave 10/13/12

    Yikes. 9 pitches, 1 strike.

    Not against the lefty.

    They will pitch to DRob. Dusty could use Mesoraco, but DRob does hit better as a righty than a lefty, apparently. So it could work out.

    As we just saw - but they would have pitched to Chapman: when was the last time Chapman swung a bat in a real game?

    I'd just rather have anybody up but D-Rob. Hopefully he proves me wrong.

    A little D-Rob magic is just what the doctor ordered here. Let's go!

    Or not. Damn.

    First pitch swinging on a breaking ball after he walked two straight batters?

    A guy throws 8 out of 9 for a ball and Robinson goes up hacking at the first two pitches he sees.

    I don't like that.
