    So much bad baseball this season, so many outs given away.
    I fail to see how it's anyone's fault other than Frazier

    Probably, but in the moment Frazier is probably think he can pick his pocket. It was kinda dumb, but I side with Welsh. With a struggling offense, I'm fine with pushing a bit. Not like it really matters anyway.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    Oh well, let's move on so we can enjoy our 1 run loss

    I'm all for aggressive base running. But in order for that strategy to be effective, you have to use common sense. Frazier only had to watch the play as it developed in front of him. Plain as day.

    Only to the extent that Price has instructed them to be super aggressive on the bases. Which I think may be the case.
    Obviousy Frazier shouldn't have run in any event.

    The hustle to cut it off and immediate plant tells you he's not getting his pocket picked....a bad read by Frazier

    I can't believe they overturned that.

    Not watching. Was it a catcher not leaving a lane issue again?

    The Reds obviously didn't eat these before the game today:

    No. Play on the runner at third.

    Simon walks in a run to continue his 'human disaster' start tonight.

    Walking in runs is very reminiscent of the lost decade.

    Simon looks very uncomfortable out there. He's pitched enough. Just sit him for the rest of the year.

    The Mets should feel lousy that they've managed to score only 3 runs so far.
