    I don't think he's played much OF but I don't think Wrigley is a good place for him to learn.

    Another one-run loss. It's just the way it is

    I never read it that way. I always felt that people were serious about it, and only fell back on the "tongue in cheek" argument when it became obvious that he wasn't what they had built him up to be.

    I always saw him as a solid defender who would hit for a decent average, not whiff a ton, and wasn't allergic to walks. Very little pop, but a very solid contributor. I still feel that way.

    Pretty much, but he had hit for power in the minors between 04-06. This being kind of the last peak for big offense in baseball, it wasn't hard to assume before he came up that he could hit 15-20 HRs a year as a Red.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    Yep, and that's the definition of a 4th/5th OF.

    Reds lose, Cardinals win. Reds officially eliminated from division contention. Eliminated with more than a month to play. How long since they did that?

    Since we both have a long history with the Reds, you are teetering closely to the idea that 2010-2013 were good years, which is universally rejected here mainly because Johnny B. Baker was the hated manager. Now that we have that cracker jack short timer and much supported and short timer Bryan F. Price in charge, we fall off the face of the earth, even though it's widely because of injuries and wouldn't have anything to do with bad decisions in-game. Never.

    Just being a little bitter over the state this team is in. Forgive me.

    In general, that's probably true. But back then, I saw the Reds biggest need as a guy who could hit for a decent average and get on base. Power wasn't an issue IMO. And again, I still feel that's what we're missing...and have been for more than a decade.
