    Runner missed the go home sign and stopped at 3rd with the batter rounded first a little -- BP got behind him and the cut-off throw came back to him -- run down & 3rd out
    The older I get - the better I was

    and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)

    3rd base coach clearly waving the runner home. Runner stops at 3B bag and acts like he didn't see the signal. Runner at first got caught in a rundown trying to advance on the throw.

    Single to Bruce, man on second. He's being waved around but he's looking at Bruce and not the 3rd base coach. Just freezes in his tracks like a deer in headlights. Hung the batter out to dry after rounding 1st. Snap throw to 1st gets behind Navarro and he's out in a rundown...all the while, Valbuena (at third) is still just standing there. :O)

    It looked like Jay was in his throwing motion as the runner got to third. He would have been out at home by a mile. The ball was back in the infield before the batter reached first base.

    No, that I don't agree with. It was hit quite hard and had a bad hop. He didn't step out of the way of it...he simply didn't step INTO the way of it like he should have. Not a routine play...but still a play that should've been made.

    Frazier hitting over .400 against Wood lifetime, which explains why Todd was moved up to the fifth slot today. I'd still rather have Ludwick fifth most of the time.

    That's a routine play for a major leaguer. We can agree to disagree.

    Bruce K's, Todd grounds out to third to strand 2. 0-0 after 1.

    I hope the coaches realize that Todd's ground ball percentage is up ten points from last season. It could easily be a mechanical thing in his swing. If he could elevate some of these hard hit grounders, he'd be more effective.

    Votto's error has been removed. Double.

    I walk away for 2 batters. Can't you guys hold down the fort for 2 minutes?!? *sigh*

    1-0 Cubs.

    23 homers allowed by Arroyo. His stubborn refusal to walk guys helps Bronson a lot, seems like many are solo shots.
