    It's kind of a bummer that he's too good this year. I was hoping he'd be one of our bench players next year as Votto starts at 1st Base.

    Bat him second?

    He seems to either be 5-5 or 0-5.....and look bad doing it. Just me I guess.
    He's like Concepcion in the 70's after Morgan arrived. A .270 hitter with some speed. Bat him 7th just like Concepcion.

    Dunn keeps striking out. 107 this year. I know, it doesn't matter.

    With "GOOD MR. RED" being a team that played smart with energy.......

    BAD MR. RED is baaaccckkkkkk!

    I would almost think that Jerry Narron is hovering somewhere around this game.......

    I think I've never said a bad word about Adam Dunn. But I've got to say, he look sterrible at the plate. Why doesn't he swing at the close balls when he has two strikes!!!! It's as if he is sleepwalking out there. What are our coaches doing for this team?

    Hernandez just said if he K'd as much as Ross in 200 some AB's he'd consider jumping off the GW bridge.

    He's killing me tonight.

    I have no problem with it. Its likely not a 1 run game anymore as soon as the pen gets involved, the bench is weaker than circus lemonade and there were 2 outs.

    Freel lets Reyes stretch a single to a double.

    Reds don't appear ready to play tonight. The Mets are so much more athletic and aggressive it's like the Reds don't belong on the same field.

    Maybe Reds will pick things up in the eighth and ninth.

    I think Hatteberg is great, but he is platooning. Why leave him in against lefty Feliciano in the eighth inning? Against the lefty, isn't Conine the better hitter? Mets gain the advantage lefty-lefty, Reds agree to the disadvantage.

    Conine is not going to hit for Griffey, nor for Dunn, so Reds basically are unable to use good righty hitter against Mets lefty relievers.

    Ok if Hatte plays against all pitchers, but he is a platoon guy. If so, platoon him.

    Quick Poll:

    How many runs do the REDS give up in the 8th?
