    DatDudeDP to end the inning.
    Kelch is no Harry Caray in that regard, though.
    The world is a messy place. People are inconsistent and complicated. Maybe we should see how different things could be if we gave grace and forgiveness to our fellow human beings when they fail to be perfect in our eyes. -- me

    He said it was Peraza when Suarez hit the HR last night.

    Great changeup on 3-2 by Finnegan
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    I don't want to jinx what I've seen from Finnegan over the last month...

    He's looking like a starter.

    Heck, I've been all over the map with him.

    Critics point to his league leading counting stats (walks and HR) but he seems to have turned a corner. So I have no problem looking the other way on those 2 issues and seeing if he can't keep this up. He could slip back into poor form but on this staff let's let it ride.

    I'm all over the map too, I'm the odd bird who's simultaneously a fan and a critic this year lol.

    The changeup is the key. Without it, he's basically a reliever masquerading as a starter. With it, he looks like a guy you can dream on.

    Keep in mind I'm only in the first inning but Kelch made me laugh which has never happened....Chris.."where was he going"....Kelch.."right now he's heading back to the dugout"

    This season has made me delirious

    Another 1-2-3, 2 K inning for Finnegan.

    He's throwing strikes now too with confidence. Seemed like a lot earlier in the year he was immediately falling behind 2-0, 3-0 to batters, right now if he falls behind 1-0 the next pitch is a strike.

    Just joining. I see Finnegan the reliever is having another very good start.

    Whoever has been working with him deserves credit, he's obviously made helpful adjustments.

    Leadoff double Cabrera in the 6th, time to remember that Ricky Nolasco is pitching.

    Billy sac bunt and Cozart IMMEDIATELY grounds out to third to make it two outs with the runner on third.

    Welsh rightfully pointing out a sac bunt was a pretty dumb idea.

    Votto cracks one but caught by the jumping 2B. Sigh.

    Billy has been slumping a bit, probably bunting for a hit.

    I thought they'd give him a day off today.

    Didn't look as good at the plate last night. May be a bit tired.

    He kind of reminds me of Pat Summerall when he was on the sauce.
