    Horrible managing there by Pete Mac. Letting Ellison hit in a close game? Bad decision.

    I don't understand why Dickerson wasn't given a shot before Ellison. How many organizations does Ellison have to filter through before he returns to full-time AAA duty?

    Krivsky appears attracted to players like Ellison and Hopper. Banjo-hitting speedsters.

    Just for the record, I'd like to point out that it is no coincidence that the Reds overall record has improved with each member of the team who has switched to wearing the reds socks again.

    If a few of them start wearing the old stirrups and sanitary hose, they can start printing playoff tickets.

    I sure like the look of the "hose" and stirrups better than the long solid socks. Looks stupid to me.

    with Cantu swinging a hot bat I would have let Cantu hit since you knew Grabow would face Hatty.

    Hopper up, over/under on a bunt?

    Mac hasn't done a very good job. My guess is the game ends and Dunn never comes to the plate. He hit a ball of Grabow between the stacks last year.

    Hatteberg is a favorite of this organization while Cantu is the new kid on the block, thus the change. Batting Hatt against a lefty (which was sure to come) just means you've burned a hot hitter you didn't mean to burn.

    FWIW, Dunn was on deck to bat with runners on when Ellison GO.

    Pure and simple Dunn should have hit for Ellison right there.

    MY question re: Hopper is this: does he bunt so much because no one's figured out how to stop it, or does he bunt so much because he doesn't hit so well?

    I know, but I hoped if I typed it he would actually swing at a pitch, and it worked. :P
