    He's old school. This is a meaningful game. He's not going to give Roenicke his first try here, unless absolutely necessary.

    These Brewers announcers......Votto is a great fielding 1st basemen? They can score a lot? Never thought i would laugh at actual compliments for my own team.

    Let's start a poll. How many errors will Edwin have at the end of the season? He may set a record.

    That play is exactly why EE may not be at third for the Reds next year. Wasn't an easy play, but the real good third basemen make that throw.

    *laughs* Yeah, didn't see THAT stolen base coming. :O) I wouldn't be surprised if he swiped third too. And that's not a swipe at Hanigan...but rather our pitching staff's slow approach to the plate overall. Again, that's on Pole.

    I really wish EE could learn to throw without that loop. It's so unorthodox...and that's ok if you have accuracy.

    Can't even get a throw off when everyone in the park knew he was running.

    It shouldn't matter too much from left field.

    Or from DH.

    Some perspective on Griff. He batted 6th tonight while DeeeWayne Wise hit 2nd. Yes, that Dwayne Wise.

    that would border on the castro for hamilton move from the last manager.
    there's nothing like bowling a 300 game! 13 now and retired.

    Patterson due up in the 9th...since Dusty's genius worked last night, I bet he lets him hit tonight

    Pre season Bakers fielding coach Chris Speier was suppose to be the cure there.

    Or my personal preference...first base. Votto to left. Rosales to third.
