    Tough error to take there. That was an absolute rocket off the bat of Pence.

    I do too, sadly. My dad is 50 years old and can still outrun me by a mile.

    Reds go through the top of the 3rd in 4 pitches. I love this new aggressive approach.

    With Oswalt, you have to be....he doesn't walk guys, and if u don't swing, you'll be at his mercy in a hurry, because he's a strike machine. Getting hits or fouls is the only way to really run up his pitch count

    I could buy that if it was just against Oswalt. But we've seen this all season, and Dunn/Griffey's absence has only exacerbated the problem. This team is hacktastic, and IMO it's hurting the offense in a big way.

    Votto works a walk on 7 pitches. Refreshing.
