"If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Last time I was this nervous during a game was Homer's debut against the Indians.

    Bruce said his dream was to always play with Griffey. Tonight that dream comes true.

    I suppose sometimes it's okay to bat the CF 2nd.

    Can't wait for this game to get under way. Hopefully Bruce scores me a couple hundred points in my fantasy league... tonight

    I wonder if ESPN will switch over to the game to show Bruce's first AB?

    Could be a kind of passing of the torch of a great hitter to young lion ready to take over. We shall see.

    Wilson attempts a sacrifice and Votto throws the ball away. 2nd and 3rd. Hit and an error on Votto

    One bad, bad defensive flaw Votto has is he looks toward second base everytime a ball is hit to him and then it screws the whole play up.
