If anything....id call him out on his lethargic defense and below average baserunning.
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.
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
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.
Rounding third and heading for home...
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!
