    Mes just doesn't play his position well. Just an observation.

    Good example of the poor form of Devin right there. Reached with his hand instead of moving to block the ball.

    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Hold on now. We're not even close to anything that drastic.

    i think an on-field coach firing will occur before the Reds make any trades.

    when re-upped, i am sure that Reds brass told Baker and his band of banjos that the team was expected to make the playoffs and go farther in 2013.

    Pop out to Cozy to end the inning. 5-0 A's.

    OK, time to crank up some offense against A.J. "Big Train" Griffin.

    You see what we're getting with what we have. This is a .500 baseball team unless there are changes.

    He just seems too nonchalant back there. It's not a lack of effort, but it looks like a lack of focus or urgency. The skills are there.

    Re: 6/26/13 - Reds @ Athletics

    The way I see it -- Bruce and Votto are the offense right now

    BP has not been the same since getting hit

    Cozart, Frazier, the catchers & LF have done very little most of the year

    Choo has become below average after his torrid start

    The bullpen has not been as good as I expected - same for the bench

    The starting pitching is the only thing that has kept this team in it.
    The older I get - the better I was

    and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)
