    Do you think Cabrera would agree to sign again, start at AAA, and then come up again when there's an injury? He's not a bad player, versatile, seems to hit lefties.

    Knocks in a run there with a single.

    He crushed them in the minors. It seems like it takes lefty hitters a while to adjust to lefty pitchers. Josh Hamilton was awful against lefties last year (.588 OPS) but this year has a .821 OPS against LHP.

    Cabrera singles to make it 2-0 Reds.

    How old is Cabrera? I think he might have some offers on the ML level next year if he doesn't come back.

    Hannigan grounds out to Rodriguez. I really his plate approach. He reminds me of a RH Scott Hatteberg.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Hanigan grounds out. 2-0 Reds after 1/2 innings. Rodriguez threw 30 pitches in the first inning.

    He's 35. I imagine he'll find a spot on somebody's bench, if not ours.

    A Minute Maid opposite field HR for Kaz Matsui. Just slapped it over the wall.

    You can already tell Volquez is going to get rocked tonight. His first three pitches were all above the belt and Matsui made him pay with a homerun to left on a 0-2 pitch. You can just tell Volquez is worn out. These last few starts he hasn't been able to command anything and is constantly leaving the ball up in the zone. Hopefully this is his last start.

    That's only 14 bombs in 188 2/3 innings...

    Tejada slices one down the line which catches the wall and then bounces off the ball-boy on it's way to Bruce. No ruling from the ump on the matter and Tejada winds up at 2B.
