    Phillips grounds into a 4-6-3 DP. A good scoring chance is blown. 0-0 mid 1st.

    A BP DP... the most predictable play in baseball.

    Gotta love Brandon Phillips in the cleanup spot. They'll never learn.

    First and second with nobody out against an awful pitcher... and they don't score.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Here's what is equally as nauseating, in my view:

    That Taveras and Dickerson were still on first and second as that at-bat unfolded. With that speed, and Phillips' propenisty for doing what he just did, they should have tried to steal to start that at-bat...

    Small Ball my arse. With Taveras and Dickerson on base, if there is ever a time to be running its with Brandon Phillips up and less than two outs. You know he'll swing at anything and protect the runners. If your going to get small ball guys, then let them do what they do. If your playing for 3 run homers, these ain't the right guys.

    Should have been an easy ground out by the throw from Votto to Volquez goes right off Volquez's glove.

    Reds baseball at its finest. Bouncer to Votto, who tosses it slightly behind Volquez, who drops the ball as he reaches for 1st...
    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.
