Everybody talks about Arroyo, Harang, Dunn, etc., but I watched the Yankee game tonight and it was fun to see marginal prospects performing.
Votto (not really a marginal player, but an afterthought for this year) hit a clutch Homerun; Bubba Crosby made an unbelievable catch to save a late inning; Ramirez pitched himself out of a loss (I am not sure he should be our 5th starter, and he does not have overpowering stuff, but he proved he knows how to pitch!); and Shearn (did you see that moonball? He struck out two with that-amazing!)
Most of these guys are not in the "plan", but there seems to be something about the Reds this year that is special. Anyone else think so?
