    Taveras has got to catch that ball. The ball hit his glove, he just failed to catch it.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    How can an umpire call a guy safe before he is even there?

    Why not question that bad call Chris and george? What are they paying you for?

    It was far from a smash.

    I'm obviously not a Taveras guy, but he does have a pretty good arm (its actually his most valuable tool). He made that close from his butt.

    It was a weak fly ball to shallow center.

    I've been watching a ton of Franklin Gutierrez who is an exceptional defender in center and he would've made that play on Morgan standing up.

    Taveras isn't an elite defender.

    Nope. Not close.

    That's Harang's first K against a lefty this season. And the Reds needed it.

    Nice K and a nice job by the broadcast team to show the defensive alignment in the outfield.

    Taveras plays a very shallow CF. I don't like that. I'd much rather give up a bloop single than a double or triple.

    That's what? Already about 20 pitches? Can anyone get through 5 without throwing 100 pitches on this staff?

    If Taveras is really that fast.....he sure does not show it. He obviously get's bad jumps.
