    bases loaded, 1 run in, and Cueto still hasn't allowed a hit. Sheesh. not the formula for success in this ballpark.

    Short fly ball near the line. After a long run, he just dropped it. No doubt it should've been caught.

    Tough play that he came a long way for, but the ball hit off of his glove. A major league OF makes that catch IMO.

    Cueto was forced to throw 35 pitches in the first inning despite not allowing a hit. Those errors cost him probably 20 pitches, if not more.

    Votto stays hot with a lead off double.

    Man, Votto is just pounding the ball since he's come back. Even his outs are freaking bullets. Lead off double to the wall.

    Overall I've been impressed with his defense. I think the more he plays right field the better he'll get. He's bounced between LF, CF, and RF this year. The more he plays in right the better he should get.

    1st and 3rd for the black hole. I'd say that there's one down...but I already see 3 down.

    Double play ball, but Patterson hustled and beat it out. Votto scores. Hmmm...nice to be wrong. :O) 1-1 game.

    I agree that he'll probably improve in RF, but even his CF play, where he spent a lot of time, seems lacking to me. He's not "get him outta there" bad like Griffey was at the end, but he's not a plus out there either IMO.

    Corey Patterson is like a parody or something.

    Patterson is brutal on the base paths, as well.

    I agree that his range isn't great in CF but he can cover some ground in RF from what I've seen.
