    Nah, I"ve got no problem with putting him in for defensive purposes late in the game. I'd just prefer that they put him in left so we can see Chris in center for longer. Everytime Dusty double-switches Corey into the game, it's always to center and bumping Chris to left. I'd like to see a change to that.

    Did George defend him by calling him the Corkster?

    *sigh* Another fielding flub by Bruce. Affeldt repeatedly gets into trouble by not changing speeds. 6 straight FB's between 93-95 to Hill (10 straight if you go back to previous hitters). You're just asking to get beat when you do that. I don't care HOW fast your heater is, if that's all you throw...the hitters WILL get the timing down on you.

    Dang. Votto hits another homerun but it slices foul.

    Man, I thought Votto had another one. Foul ball though.

    Votto ends up striking out. 3 up, 3 down. Still, a great game for Joey. 2-3, 2 walks, 2 runs, 3 rbis, double & HR. Anybody know what he's hitting in the second half? It's got to be pretty tremendous.

    I don;t think his hot streak started until around the middle of AUG....his power was also down until recently. Good to see him finishing strong.

    Yeah, I just looked. Since he's come back from after his dad passed...he's been a terror.

    Re: Reds vs Cubs 9/5/08

    And this one belongs to the Reds.

    A really great game overall. With the exception of the 2 Bruce flubs and Majik....great game.

    Not at all. They've both performed well in limited ABs.

    Re: Reds vs Cubs 9/5/08

    Diggin' the kids....I think Joey Votto is going to be an absolute STUD.....maybe moreso than Bruce, who I think is going to put up great numbers as well. Volquez...well, he's looking like a TRUE ace in my book, and i've been a fencer on the trade all season..Cueto has worked himself a lot of valuable experience, and can be a dominant pitcher....Im excited about the young spark in Cincinnati...a foundation appears to be set. Jocketty has to build the house now.... The tools are there, and so is the GM

    I can't agree more. I'm right there with you Matt. Another great thing to see is the fact that we've got a solid pipeline of additional talent coming up through the ranks as well. I haven't EVER seen this much solid talent up and down the levels in the minors that we've currently got. Trying to find positions for all these young kids...now that's a new problem I'm thrilled to have. :O)
