    I've said it before: Votto is the only hitter in the major leagues who can be ahead in the count 0-2.
    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

    I said last year MLB can move to start every Votto PA with a 3-2 count....shorten games by 4 min just doing that alone

    Watching all these walks and 3 ball counts can drive a fan to drink...

    Baez definitely switches it up with 2 strikes

    You can't keep getting up 1-2 and continue to pitch to a full count.

    I'm really starting to hate these guys the Reds have allowed to throw off the mound for them this year - I can't call them pitchers because that would be insulting to pitchers.

    I've said it all year long...this bullpen does not have an above average reliever aside from Iglesias.

    You can't keep getting up by 3 runs, then squandering it!

    He's only doing what every other pitcher on the Reds does.

    Peralta is quite good, just overworked. Pitches virtually every game. Lorenzen, I think, hurt by overwork.
