Sooooo much money. Am I the only person nervous this may quickly become the worst contract in baseball?
But I completely agree that Votto's refusal to get in front of the ball was huge and would love to be able to go back and play it from that point on with an out.
6/22/12 Reds are 38-31

"No matter how good you are, you're going to lose one-third of your games. No matter how bad you are you're going to win one-third of your games. It's the other third that makes the difference." ~Tommy Lasorda
It is like Steve Sax back in 1983.
I seem to recall a time when you used to be a respectable poster, until you decided to only show up to ***** and pile on when the Reds lose. Tonight you came by to *****, literally said nothing for a half an hour when Bruce put the Reds ahead, and then came back to ***** when Chapman melted down.
"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."
I know why we lost!!!!
Stubbs hasn't scored today.
