    Re: 7/7/2014 Cubs at Reds Jay Bruce at 1B!!!!

    Bruce at first is a joke. The average mlb team has roster flexibility and depth and a willingness to make moves. I didn't look it up but my guess is the Reds have made fewer non DL roster moves than every other team. Non DL meaning moves to improve team due to poor performance or someone playing so well in AAA or AA he moves up. We've done it a couple times. Anyway, this looks desperate and it is.

    Perfect time to call up Soto and play him everyday until Votto gets back off the DL. On the 40 man roster. Let's see if he has what it takes.

    i know we are playing the cubs but playing with even a shorter bench is going to cost us.
    there's nothing like bowling a 300 game! 13 now and retired.

    Votto has now played twice in the last five days. To continue with him as an active member of the roster is asinine. DL him and take advantage of the all-star break and evaluate him after the NYY series and make a decision on rehab stint in the minors, continued DL, or back to active roster when his time is up. I'm not sure why this has become the mess that it is.
    This is the ol Left Hander rounding third and heading for home.

    "As long as I'm playing, I'm 100 percent," Votto said. "If I choose to go on the DL, I'm on the DL. If I choose to play, I'm 100 percent."

    Sounds like it's Votto's call to make, from that quote.

    Watch Walt go to a 10 man pitching staff with all these starters going 7-8 innings almost every start. They could carry a Smokey Burgess, Roger Freed type on the bench and not worry about any defense.

    Bruce's Defense is going to get over-analyzed to death tonight.

    Bruce should have had that.
