    5 RBIs for Edwin... tied for most in a game this year. Done twice before tonight...

    (1) Votto, Apr. 17 @ Cubs.
    (2) Bako, June 9 @ Marlins.

    Each time it has happened... Volquez was the REDS starter.
    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    Chris was always known for the strikeouts in Louisville. I don't think that will change much now that he's here in Cincinnati. Still, 1 in 3 is a bit much.

    Dickerson's homer makes it 10-4 Reds.

    BTW, is this the wake or the funeral? It could be either.

    As announcers point out, terrible pitch by Affeldt to Aurilia. This could be another adventure. Coco hasn't pitched in awhile, hope he has something in the tank tonight because he's likely to get a chance.

    Why am I still watching these games?

    What is there left to say? I know my season of posts has become as weak as the Reds offense. Last year I found statistical research far more interesting. This year I just can't bring myself to do it. I remember being interested in lineup construction but this year any thoughts would have just been killed by the fact that CF leads off, SS is second, etc. Hopefully energy will come back.

    I just saw Dickerson's HR over on Gameday. Does his swing always look that nice? Compact but smooth, lefty grace. Good pop

    Many would say that attempted steal was good baseball, but the pitcher wasn't throwing strikes and then Votto singles. It seems like a waste of an out.
