The Operator (10-01-2013)
you forgot 2B !!!
and yes those positions have been avg or below avg but I doubt that the reds could effort much more... choo will be gone and I doubt that BH will have a good OBP therefore his speed is not that helpfull...
I think Ludwick will have a pretty good year next season, with a spring training and without his injury he should be much better than this (quarter) season...
cozart is a solid ss and it is hard to find an big offensive upgrade without giving up defence and it would cost a lot...
so I hope we´ll see something on 3rd, catcher and 2nd base (altough we won´t see it because bp contract isn´t trade friendly)
McCutchen singles to left
Sabermetrics can be boiled down to this simple truism: 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.
There's a real MVP. Not pissing down his leg in the spotlight.
Rounding third and heading for home...
But the Reds do need to take an objective look at their ballclub. They need a few more bats in the lineup, proven guys.
Ya know, for those that are bashing Votto and loving on Cutch...
McCutcheon has never had 100 RBIs.... ever. Votto has twice. Just sayin.
And people are saying Cutch should be the MVP this year and all.
this is the longest two hours and 10 minutes of baseball i can remember in quite some time
I have about as much confidence in Zach Duke as I have in the rhythm method
How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids
Tim McCarver: Baseball Quotes
I remember one time going out to the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the batter, that the only thing I knew about pitching was that it was hard to hit.
Hmm...ESPN boxscore shows Marshall was never in the game! LOL
