    Agreed. Gibson was managing that game like it was the one-game WC playoff. He better hope his starter goes deep today.

    Disagree. As an old first baseman (not a professional one, lol), that hop looked a little funny. True Votto did a swipe instead of blocking the ball. But that's an instinctive reaction from a 1B to get the out with the runner screaming down the line. Taking into consideration a player going to third, probably a block would have been better, but a natural 1B reaction is to do the "pick" and get the out. The opposite of the natural catcher reaction, which is block the ball block the ball block the ball.
