    Brutus - we are driving at the same thing, really. You have to find some way to score a run with a man on third and 1 out. Someone, somehow.

    productive inning
    "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."

    Well that was quick and unimpressive half inning for the Reds.

    But they're not Votto. I agree in a perfect world, you'd have every hitter doing their jobs correctly. But they're not, and whether it's fair or unfair, Votto is good enough to make that kind of adjustment. They clearly aren't.

    I'd rather have my best hitter making the adjustments and doing what it takes to score the runs rather than hoping the other guys do their jobs when they haven't been with any consistency.

    If Votto had two more Vottos behind him, believe me, I'd be thrilled to death to have him do what he does every time up. Unfortunately though, Bruce is a feast or famine type hitter.

    Also batters have an OPS of 1.389 when they hit line drives off Kershaw. So if we hit nothing but line drives tomorrow it should be no problem. Simple really.

    AGon up. Maybe the oldest looking guy in the majors. He'd be in the conversation. JV to Latos covering. 2 down.

    Who do you pinch hit with in the top of the inning?

    Raise your hand if you thought, after the first few innings, Latos would wind up lasting seven?

    Nice 1-2-3 from Latos. Looking sharp.

    Okay boys, I'm back from the store...time to smack around a pitcher in dodger blue.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG
