    Interesting note on the Mets stealing 4 times tonight against one of the NL's top guns. Almost seems like their advanced scouts saw something.

    Phillips, meanwhile, stands still against a 20% catcher.

    THAT at bat is why I am a Dunn not a supporter.....

    Dunn rolled over on a pitch that he should be driving somewhere.....

    Phillips takes a page out of Freels book and is easily out.

    Edwin steals 2nd.

    Conine is pinch hitting for Gonzalez.

    That's just sad ... Encarnacion isn't even much of a basestealer, and he steals second base without much of a problem. You've got a pitcher who's slow to the plate and a catcher with a weak arm, and Encarnacion did what Phillips couldn't do.

    Phillips never tried to take second when Dunn was up, he never tried to take third when Encarnacion was up, and then he gets caught in a rundown. Phillips should have been standing on third base when Encarnacion was up, but instead ... he wasn't.

    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.
    Is it an issue of a leader? I don't put that kind of problem all on the shoulders of one player...on a manager maybe...some players lead by example. Griffey at his peak with the Mariners was as good an example as there is.

    I don't know what it is. Just that I feel that this team has consigned itself to losing. It's been a losing team for going on eight years now, but one of the reasons last year's (losing) team was so fun was because it didn't seem to have that air about it. Lacking talent, yes, but lacking a desire to win...not quite. I can't explain it, I probably shouldn't try.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Conine grounds out to 3rd. Reds lose 3-2.
