    Billy has some work to do on the steals.

    Still think the Reds overused him this year, but hopefully he'll learn from it and get better.

    I would have sacrificed there instead of the steal. Normally I don't like the sac, but with this offense I bunt.

    Thom way too busy talking about bunting to realize that Frazier clearly fouled off a ball and didn't strike out.

    But now he strikes out.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    In his nearly 80 attempts I swear 77 have been on easy catch and throw fastballs. Run on 0-1, 0-2, 1-2 counts

    Doesn't get a great jump and his timing seems predictable. Most of the year he always ran on the first pitch. He's varying it a bit now.

    Billy is young, have to give him time. As I said, don't really like that Price used him so, so much. Has seen a bit worn out the second half.

    Yeah, but I'm 40, not fast and haven't played organized baseball since age 18 as a freshman in college and I know with the fastest guy in baseball on first that a fastball is coming on nearly every 0-0, 1-0, 2-0, 2-1, 3-1 and more 1-1, 2-2 and 3-2 counts because Billy is on first.....run on the other counts more!

    I get you and agree...just want the right call in the end and I believe that happened.

    Replay has improved the game. Nothing is perfect. The take away on that play is that Hamilton is not very good at using his great speed to steal bases, as yet.

    I don't see any huge inconsistency. You can easily see how that call would be overturned.

    there's nothing like bowling a 300 game! 13 now and retired.

    I know the Reds' season is over, but come on, this is a boring team.

    But the games end more quickly and when they do score it's a wow moment.

    I see the problem now. According to ESPN Gamecast, the Reds only got two outs in the fourth.
