    Phillips -- Griffey walks and he hacks on the first pitch popping it up.

    That's why you don't bat him cleanup....and that's ok. He can be a superstar without batting 4th.


    But what do I know?

    You always like to see a club make a decision on a player before he even has a chance to prove himself in the bigs. The sure signs of a successful organization is holding onto those old guys who have taken you all the way to fifth place, and leaving the youngsters who need a chance to learn down in the minors.

    Nice bit of hitting by Edwin. And, wow, Cox has a quick hook. I kind of like that.

    I think the Reds are dead wrong on Joey Votto. The guy hits the ball with authority to all fields and has great plate discipline. I'd say nearly half of his homeruns this year have been to the opposite field. I see him being a left-handed Kevin Youkilis type hitter with a little more strikeouts and maybe slightly better power down the road.

    Shame to see the aged Bobby Cox so slow to pull a struggling pitcher.
    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    He's had a good year. He'll probably catch on with Detroit or Atlanta.
