    He's clearly the best offensively, but he's not even close to being the best on the team in any other area. He's my boy, but lets be honest here.

    People bang on him, and for good reason at times, but what's he supposed to say when the team does things like what Votto did? That kind of thing is just a real head scratcher.

    You yourself are guilty of most of those things on a daily basis, so you probably shouldn't be lecturing anyone else.

    No, no he's had his defensive issues for sure. I didn't think the steal attempt was that bad of an idea. Bad execution, not a bad idea.

    Yeah it really was, I don't disagree with what he said. I guess I just never noticed it from him before and wondered if it was always like that and i just didnt realize

    Votto thought the pitcher was asleep. So he took a risk. It failed.

    Frankly, I can't blame him for trying to make something happen. This is just another display of the offensive shortcomings of this team.

    World Champions destroy guys like this pitcher Cahill. Just an unacceptable game on offense for the Reds.

    I have no problem with Votto trying to get in scoring positing with 2 outs.

    Or anyone.

    I would be genuinely curious for you to cite an example, other than that I obviously am something of a 'general nuisance' to you.
