    Re: 9/7 vs the Brew Crew

    Fun to watch the boys beat up on someone else for a change. Bronson was deceptive tonight. He wasn't totally overpowering, but he kept them from getting hits and getting on base much. All of a sudden he was out of the game only having given up 2 runs and a handfull of hits.

    Couple of nice plays, Votto snaring a line drive and EE had two really, really good catches.

    Best of all, my father snagged a foul ball off of Johnny Estrada. Always like the souvineers. Actually, it was impressive. The ball hit right in front of a lady two seats down and it shot off to the left. I flailed at it like a drunken, wounded goose. My 65 year old father deftly grabbed it and handed it to me. Soft hands indeed.

    The sad thing is this organizations GM and top scouts appear to believe what you have posted here.

    They are too often afraid to give up on old veterans like Conine/Hatteberg in favor of a youngster like Votto.

    This club wasn't going anywhere this year. This was a perfect time to turn EE, Hamilton and Votto loose for an entire season.

    Let'em play against RHP and LHP. Let'em make mistakes, Let'em learn.

    Edwin has always been a favorite of mine.

    I think most fans forget just how young EE really is. Edwin is just eight months older than Joey Votto.

    Somebody's full of crap
    Word. And then some. Lies, lies upon lies, from the front office with regard to Votto.

    Votto was not left in AAA too long. A September call-up was perfect.
    For the love of all that is holy, why, exactly, would they need to find that out?

    I think the citizens of Hamilton County ought to be able to fine the Cincinnati Reds every time they start Phil Dumatrait.

    You're assuming of course that the media or the internet or cable guessers have been accurately stating what our FO actually thought of him. For that matter, did the rub of "no defense" come from scouts outside the organization hoping to diminish the value of Votto. Far too often, we get from the newspaper bloggers that "some in the organization" and we have no idea with that is. Most anything coming out of John Fay's blog, or Hal McCoy's columns and occasionally from CTR's blog (he's on verge of exploding in some of his game blogs, not a good thing, IMO, for resume building) are generally pretty much full of it.

    I always like it when the dad's catch the ball and give it to their little boys. [that's in all seriousness - fun for both of you - can you tell I'm getting ready for my final kid to leave for college and facing the fact that my little ones have grown up!]

    I made some joke about Dad not giving the ball to a kid. He responded, "I gave the ball to a kid...my kid".

    I don't care how old you are. Going to a ball game with your father, having him snare a foul ball and hand it to you is one of the best feelings in the world.

    Celibrate and enjoy the empty nest Redsmetz. But don't forget that you'll always be Dad.
