    According to THom, he's hitting "only" .250 with 2 outs and RISP.

    I wonder what the league average is?

    Double switch:

    Holt, who led off the last inning with a PH walk and scored on Votto's hit, stays in to play LF.
    Iglesias now pitching and batting 4th.
    Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman. Damn glad to meet ya.

    Yes, RBIs as a stat mean nothing. You're not differentiating the act of driving in a run from the RBI stat (which tells us nothing about a player's ability.)

    Distance covered: 123ft
    First step: -0.3
    Top speed: 22 MPH
    This May very well be the greatest play in StatCast history. Not only does no other CF make that catch....none of them could make that catch. You can't get a better jump and they can't run 22 mph on a catch and the fact the catch took him to the wall on a slide. He saved 3 bases that no one else could've.

    I guess this is just yet another outlier catch that shouldn't count because he doesn't have good CF abilities...he's just fast.

    What a play by Suarez. Shame BP couldn't handle it.

    the Reds' best pitcher rises to the occasion -- again - nice job
    The older I get - the better I was

    and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)

    I miss Raisor

    In this instance, and considering the no score game, it was terrific that Joey drove in a run, and yes accumulated an RBI which a lessor player with less RBIs would not.

    You are saying that less RBIs equals a lesser player. That is not always true. That is what Raisor is alluding to.
