    If the goal is winning the World Series than you have to make the playoffs first.

    And I still say they win the division by ten games

    I think it's because Marty is on vacation.
    I guess Thom is not available either?

    But you're right on. Latos blew this one by giving up 6 runs. The offense did their job tonight.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    I forgot he had a couple of really nice throws, and they even took a blatant error away from him. Why? I have no frickin clue.

    I guess the "tear down your superstar" backlash has set in on Votto. Who had "Year Two" of the contract extension in the pool?
    "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."

    Dude there is no way that is happening. There are only 70 games left and they are 5 and 6 behind in the loss column to two teams in the division.

    Catch the Pirates - good possibility.

    Catching both - unlikely but not unreasonable

    Winning the division by ten games at this point in the season meaning the Cards and Pirates both collapse and the Reds play .650+ ball the rest of the way - downright laughable

    Except that's exactly what happened last year. With the team's pitching it is entirely possible.

    If the Reds go 45-25 and the Cards go 31-41.....you are right

    You planning on going up to him and telling him that?

    No way this team goes 45-25 the rest of the way, and I like this team a good bit. The Cards going 31-41 is also very unlikely.

    He never attempts to break up a DP, if you don't have a problem with that, well fine...

    Falcon, I asked you this before: what numbers does Votto need to put up to make you happy ?

    He needs to play better PERIOD! All the way around. Are you seriously happy with his play this year?

    Like I said before he needs to hit for more power Hr's, doubles ect. and drive in more runs, especially in the CLUTCH.
    His doubles are way down this year (17), he had 44 last year and missed what, about 50 games.
    3 run homers or slams this year = 0.
    Games with more than 2 rbi's = 0.
    He needs to pull the ball with power every now and then.

    Dude's OPS is well over 900. Slg is 500.

    I'm not sure why you won't give us an actual number. Unless there's nothing he can do to make you happy.

    Reds went on 49-24 last year at one point.

    Cards went 23-30 last year at one point.

    Long seasons have runs like that for most teams.

    It's really not that unlikely at all for either to happen. It's less unlikely for both to happen at the same time, but the Reds could still, very easily win this division in a cake walk. Stuff like that happens every year in MLB.

    I'm not sure why you won't give us an actual number. Unless there's nothing he can do to make you happy.
    At this point, I would like to see around 100 rbi's, to get to that #, his doubles and HR's would have to increase dramatically as well, there is almost no chance he can do this.
    Of course I would also like him to hit .310 with an OPS of 1 and Slg around .600. And to not make any more errors, mental or physical.
    Now is this remotely realistic or even fair at this stage in the season, of course not.
    That's why I've just stated in general what I would like to see from him:
    "He needs to hit for more power Hr's, doubles ect. and drive in more runs, especially in the CLUTCH."

    Clearly he is one of the best hitters in all of baseball, "and if we had 2 more like him, putting up his current stats. we would likely be 5 games up!
