    I don't blame Speier for sending JV with 2 outs...I just wish we had some more speed on this team. Votto is slow.

    Has a third base coach ever been fired mid-season?

    Speier's been overly cautious all year, now reckless with a player who doesn't like to slide. Go figure.

    Started watching awhile ago- between Meseraco, Heisey not diving, Simon walking Tabata to get to McCuthen and now this fiasco with Votto, I see why things are the way they are.

    Watching Votto run isn't the grandest of visions.

    I never worry about the Votto deal until I see him run. Imagine his speed in five years. Not that 1B speed is this huge thing deal, but it hurts to have another catcher running.

    I was castigated once for suggesting he be fired mid game

    maybe that was the cognac making me go over the top that night

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

    Did you see his base running? That's on Joey. He's not as athletic on the paths as he is at the plate.

    He wasn't like this pre injury though.

    He's gone from pretty athletic big man to anchor pants in the matter of one injury.

    Did you see the replay of the base running by Votto?
