    there are even three guys called Zach(k) ahead of Votto. None called Cozart however.
    Solid.

    On Dick Allen being booed in Philly:

    I just don't understand it. I guess when people have exceptional talent, they are expected to be exceptional every minute of the day, and the perfect player hasn't been born yet.

    One thing that I am 100% certain of is the fact that if Miguel Cabrera were a Red, Smarty Marty would find something to call him out for as well.

    I've always believed that knowledge was the acknowledgement that the information available was ever changing and thus enriching to the knowledge base.

    To this I ponder, what do the Brennamans do to increase their knowledge base?

    From my vantage point I'm going to say very little

    Gen Mauch Chris Short and Johnny Callison agree although Ray Culp and Clay Dalrymple do not

    Re: Marty calling out Votto

    Truth lies somewhere in between. Votto's not been a great 3 hole guy this year when it comes to producing runs, but he's not been bad, either. And I blame a lot of the low RBI total on the 2 hole issues that have played the Reds. It seems like Votto has led off a TON of innings this season. Might be just perception, but feels that way.

    Re: Marty calling out Votto

    So can anyone guess who is second in NL runs scored?

    His name rhymes with "grotto."

    He's from a country in the north of North America.

    He plays for one of the MLB teams in Ohio.

    Let me know if you need any more hints!

    Have said many times this year he's the perfect 2 hole man for this particular team as presently constructed. Why is this not an option?

    Votto is the perfect hitter at every lineup position.

    I agree. WIthout legitimate protection, and with his tremendous OB skills, which only increase without protection, Joey would be incredible with Choo as a 1-2 lead off. Just move everyone up one and let Choo and Joey SCORE runs rather than drive them in.

    I was saying this the other day. I'm afraid Dusty is way too traditional in his thinking to ever bat a 1B in the two hole.

    No argument there. Just need a clone (or even a cheap knockoff) to hit in front of him.
