    One move that might have helped the Reds is to add another catcher. Navarro would have been ideal, but would have cost.

    The catching duo just hasn't hit. In Mes' case, he may be injured, there's been talk of a hamstring problem. And maybe Mes just lost it when Hanigan starting taking a number of his at bats.

    If the Reds had added a catcher who hits lefty, the XPaul spot could have been used. Xavier doesn't play much anyway.

    Hanigan has hit better of late, but has no power at all. Maybe Mes will come around again to moot the issue.

    Tough call. Latos can totally do the job when his emotions don't get the better of him and his pitch count is 82. And good to save some pen, especially Chappy. Can understand Dusty's thinking here.

    Yeah was not questioning just throwing it out there. Not sure what I would do but with expanded rosters and Latos coming off complete game and allowing 9 hits so far I lean toward pulling him.

    I'd have loved to see us pick up Kurt Suzuki when the Nats shipped him a couple of weeks ago. Stand up clubhouse guy who can hit clutch and handles pitchers decently well. But back to Oakland for him.

    Izturis bunts foul. Choo almost picked off.

    mth also suggested Ryan Doumit, who may be more of a DH than a catcher on a contender. But I'm just looking for a bat to use in a game like this, against a tough righty who would give Mes/Hanigan trouble.

    With all the angst over some of these hitters, the catcher's spot has really been the biggest issue statistically, compared to the rest of the league.

    Joe Morgan and Eric Karros wanted Joey to swing at that first pitch. They don't like him walking with runners on base.

    Doesn't seem to be. He has looked at the ground several times like he is having a problem with the landing spot.

    This is a situation where back to back lefties pays off.
