    I'd be at the game, if not for this business trip. Darn!
    This is the only trip they're making to Miami this year, I think.

    I'd like to have seen Nix in LF tonight. Play the hot hand.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    But at the same time, Dickerson's going to be an important part of the club and we've got to get him on track...that means playing time. It kinda goes both ways I think. If he doesn't play, he'll never get into a groove.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    I don't mind playing Dickerson for a stretch, but it is too much to assume he will be an important part of this club. One good Sept does not a career make in the bigs. I'm not rooting against him at all, but he's got work to do before I pencil him in as a key part of this club. I'm rooting for you Chris.

    Re: Reds vs Marlins 5/4/09

    Janish still languishes on the bench...

    And I mentioned this in the Misc. Updates thread re: Dusty not moving Rosales up in the line up...Dusty says, "He's (Rosales) isn't a taker yet." You're right, Dusty, he only ranks at 17th in MLB in pitches seen per PA. Obviously, you're right, as always :banghead:

    That said, I hope AGon proves me wrong and isn't a black hole of despair in the lineup. Go Reds!

    Seriously, I don't understand why anybody tries to actually take meaning from Dusty. He doesn't even follow what he's saying half the time.

    Regis threw out the first pitch for the Marlins tonight. If that doesn't gurantee a victory, I don't know what does.

    Traveras made the first out and Dockerson grounded to the SS who threw the ball in the dirt for an error and Dickerson was safe.

    One on one out.

    Why can't we just put Votto and Bruce back to back?

    Re: Reds vs Marlins 5/4/09

    Top of 1:

    It always feels like home plate is so far away since the camera is so far away. BTW, there is no one at this game.

    Willy T takes a strike and then bounces to the 3rd baseman Bonifacio. 1 out

    Dickerson bounces to Rameriz. Cantu can't out the throw. Should be an error on Rameriz. It is. We'll take it.

    (Johnson throws to 1st; Dickerson refuses to slide in; like last game) (He throws over again Dickerson just in, he half slid this time but got in)

    Replay looked like Dickerson was out.

    Votto slams one into right on a line. Single, Dickerson moves to 3rd.

    Phillips plllllease don't ground into a DP. (Side not: Johnson throws 97, that's gas, folks)
    Phillips half swings and the balls hit him in the hand, but he swung. Willy May Hays would do that. BP fouls off the next pitch, shakes his hand. It is certainly bothering him.
    Phillips then K's swinging. Ball was off the plate 2 out

    Bruce quickly falls behind 0-2. Votto got a nice jump for a steal but Bruce flies to CF. 3 out.

    Made Johnson throw pitches at least.

    After a 1/2, Reds 0 Marlins coming to bat.

    No output from your cleanup hitter and don't take advantage of 2 on 1 out situation by striking and popping out. Sounds like SOP to me. I pray that Harang is on tonight.

    Where's that Hello Kitty avatar you guys were talking about yesterday?

    That was a nasty pitch for strike 3 to Brandon. It may have been off the plate but it wasn't by much and an umpire will give that pitch to the pitcher more times than not.
