    Interesting to see Hannigan and also Votto, of course... really wished Bruce would've made it.

    Didn't see Hanigan coming, no surprises elsewhere.

    Hannigan was not on the 40 man roster. What does this mean for Ryan Jorgensen, who was on the 40 man?

    It probably means, for the time being, he'll be DFA'd. But they could still move someone to the 60 day list for a little bit - Livingston, whose surgery they announced today too.

    There's an open spot on the 40 man so it's no problem.

    Votto needs to play every single day against righties, lefties, chimps, dogs, or horses.

    McKanin's handling of Votto will be my determination as to whether he stays or goes, I'll be watching his every move with Votto.

    Why, Matt?

    I'd be more careful with him than that...start him out against RH pitching, and once he gets his feet under him, let him go.

    When I say "every" day...I don't usually mean "every" day. Nobody will play "every" day.

    He needs to play more than he doesn't, and even against some lefties...

    Oh, OK. Because I agree with that!

    Re: The call ups are in...

    He needs to play MOST days...I probably said it better in another post...platoon him Cantu, if they want Cantu to also play first...at least to start. You can always move Cantu around when Votto gets comfortable if you want to challenge him against lefties.

    There. Better.

    And Ellison needs to play ZERO days.


    Can they get Votto 75 or so at bats?


    I would guess, with Perez going tomorrow, Votto's first start will not be tomorrow...




    What will probably happen is Votto will get limited PT and Ellison will have a role since they're still "in the hunt"

    What are you looking for, from both Mack and Votto, ice?

    The way I'd handle Votto is this: he is the first baseman on this team, at least against RH pitchers to start with. Hatty's been fine, but I'd have him take a seat and be a PH off the bench for now. Cantu at first against LH pitchers, and then give Votto a few selected starts against some LH'ers once he gets comfortable.

    With the team facing teams 'in the race' [Brewers, Mets, Cards, Cubs etal] I think there is no cause to say these September AB's don't count because they will be facing pitchers who are trying. In other words, if Votto hits 300, it shouldn't be tempered by the usual September yeah-but syndrome.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Mark my words. Votto won't get more than 20 ABs.
