    Uh...didn't I see this movie last night?

    This is a mis-match....the Reds aren't even in the same world as a team like the Braves.

    I think the league is catching up to Dr. Livingston.

    Without Lohse, the starting rotation requires three days of rain to be successful.

    Very nice play by Edwin. Good stop and he took his time to make a good throw even though the baserunner was motoring.

    Nice strech by Cantu to real it in.

    These can also be good things too, with Livingston and Dumatrait....they learn something about these guys now as opposed to March. You can assess where they are for next year.

    As Mackanin said recently, auditions.


    So speaking of auditions...where's Joey Votto? If that means Hatteberg has to take a seat because of the Cantu/Votto auditions...he knows how this works, and he wouldn't complain. ''

    If Votto comes up and looks lost, then you can always pick up Hatteberg's option and give Votto more time.

    I'd like to find out.

    If that's how they feel, and aren't going to give him a chance to prove he's not...then trade him.

    If this organization is seriously contemplating putting Livingston and/or Dumatrait in the rotation next season, then you might as well expect another 90 losses.

    Both those guys are what I term "6th starters" for organizations. Stash them in AAA and use them only in emergency situations when you've got actual major league caliber starting pitchers riding the disabled list. If either of them are among your best five starting pitchers, you're in serious trouble from the get go.

    I think I read that on RZ yesterday (maybe) but can't remember what the original source was.

    Maybe he is. The last home-grown 1B prospect the Reds had who was this highly-touted was Reggie Jefferson.

    For the record, I think Votto can play. But it won't hurt him to finish the season at Louisville, then join the Reds in September.
    Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman. Damn glad to meet ya.
