    Those are the only options? So you're in favor of letting him off easy?

    Send a message waiver wire him and if someone is dumb enough to claim him work out a trade for whatever you can get and let them try to win with his non out knowing ass.

    Now they should to get rid of him for this? Ok....

    It was a mistake. It shouldn't have happened. It looked bad, but ultimately didn't mean anything.

    Maybe Hoover should learn not to throw a fastball hitter a fastball in his situation, you know the pitch that actually COST THEM THE GAME.

    No he didn't. He could have, but he didn't.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Maybe getting rid of him is a little harsh but honestly I don't want to see Votto on the field the rest of the season. He's everyone's problem. Everytime he goes out onto the field he's unsafe. I don't like him because he's dangerous.

    Well, I also think people who shoot others and don't kill them should be charged the same as shooters with better aim.

    It isn't. See my post #5 in this thread. I called for a substantial fine, laughter, and more loose aggressive play going forward.

    I think the home field, country club atmosphere surrounding the team is a big problem. Since Castellini took over, Joey has had his choice of delicious foreign coffees, and his big contract affords him all of the manicures and fancy clothing he desires.

    I know Rick Stowe's third cousin by marriage, and she told me that the leather recliners have returned, and that Votto's even has a cup holder.

    This team needs a shake up.

    I've relaxed a little I realize now its not his playing, it's his attitude. The Cardinals are dangerous but right now Votto is worse, dangerous and foolish. He may not like his teammates, they may not like him but who's side is he on?

    Sure am glad that nobody on this board is human and has ever made a crucial mistake in their lives. Makes me feel good to be surrounded by such folks.

    It's just a game. Get over it.
    Sabermetrics is this: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    But I get my self esteem from things I can't control; like sports, what about my feelings?
