    I think it's the extremes the OP was referring to. It can be frustrating, whether it's reality or not. Didn't think it was right for people to take him to task for being frustrated. It's normal to be.
    Rounding third and heading for home...

    Latos was shaking hands in the dugout, I think he's done today.

    Don't know what Chapman's story is. Hoover has pitched three straight games.

    We'll see.

    Not saying I agree, but that was their thought process.

    But since they've brought in the RH to face Philips, I'm not sure why they simply didn't walk Votto?
    Crazy, isn't it?

    I don't disagree with your post, but if Joey Votto walking throws a wrench in your plans, it was probably a bad plan.

    It would be nice if Bruce went yard.

    It wouldn't be that difficult to put together numbers for how consistent or inconsisten the Reds are compared to others. Has it been done?

    I think he was saying that he's not sure if they even had one since they brought in a righty to face Phillips anyway.

    I would have walked Votto and brought in the righty to try to get the one out. Then load the bases with Bruce on first and pitch to the next hitter.

    Aren't they first or second in the NL in most 10+ run games?

    Yeah, I was just throwing out a little praise for Phillips.
