    Terrible call at third. EE had the glove on him. With Freel's play in center, Dunn's strikeouts, and the umps' calls, this is one frustrating baseball game.

    Absolutely. No reason not to let Arroyo pitch the 8th. He's been pitching great all night showing no signs at all of being tired.

    wow, was I channeling you or you channeling me?

    Agree 100% on the mental weakness of this team, its been that way far too long and its the one area I feel a good manager can have a huge impact on.

    There are a lot of things that don't make sense. Why you'd keep Juan Castro and sell for cash a player like Brendan Harris sounds like a John Allen move to me.

    Intentional walk to Green. Bases loaded with 2 outs.

    I agreed until I saw the Edwin tag his own foot instead of the Met's players foot.

    It's only been an issue for about 6 years

    Wagner's not all that quick to the plate so Phillips just needs to flat out swipe second base if he can get a good jump ... unless Dunn walks since he's already at a 2-0 count.

    Ross is the closest thing they have to a leader.

    Griffey's not a leader. Never has been.

    Dunn's not a leader. Never has been.

    Gonzo's not a leader.

    Freel's a disaster waiting to happen.

    Hamilton's not a leader or he wouldn't do what he did.

    Phillips isn't a leader.

    Hopefully Votto is.

    One of the problems of the Mariners when Junior was there, was that he made it tough for a leader to appear on that team. Reds' fans won't know what I'm talking about, but Mariner's fans can back this up. There's an aura he puts on the team that isn't conducive to winning....there's not a team mentality where one each player is willing to sacrifice for the other.

    If you see this Jojo, or WOY. comment please.

    Dunn grounds out to 2nd. Phillips moves to 2nd.
