Tim out --- me with a long meeting on Tuesday after a long week-end working means I'm out --- wishing you animals an easy win...
The older I get - the better I was
and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)
Votto misses his pitch, has a conversation with himself, and then rips one into RF for a hit.
I guess tomorrow Cingrani comes up. Soto goes down. Reynolds comes up with the special exemption.
Would be nice to see Soto get an at bat tonight, maybe even two.
I remember picking up Jonathan Sanchez in my NL-only league the week before his no-hitter as a free agent. He threw the no-hitter and then I unloaded him a week later to an owner desperate for pitching. Previously I used to fall in love with too many players and was always late in being willing to trade them. But once I started treating them as assets and went off market value, it led to far more success.

"In our sundown perambulations of late, through the outer parts of Brooklyn, we have observed several parties of youngsters playing 'base', a certain game of ball. Let us go forth awhile, and get better air in our lungs. Let us leave our close rooms, the game of ball is glorious"
Fair ball! Votto scores on a bad throw to the plate, and it's two runs!
lol he didn't even slide
"I talked to an advance scout that told me if Joey Votto and Albert Pujols were on the same team he'd advise his team to do the unthinkable...pitch around Votto to get to Pujols." - Buster Olney, ESPN
Huh? Votto scored how, without a slide!
I think Votto would rather be dropkicked than slide haha wow he looks awful running right now.
