    Pre-game Notes Per Fay:

    http://news.cincinnati.com/apps/pbcs...ategory=blog07

    Adam Dunn took the higher ground. Informed of Brandon Phillips’ statement about Laynce Nix: “It’s nice to have a left fielder who can hit and catch the ball,” Dunn smiled.


    “That nice,” he said.


    After a round of batting practice, Dunn added this: “He does that sometimes. He goes off. It’s harmless. Brandon needs to me let me go. I’m not over there anymore.”


    Other pregame notes:


    --Joey Votto worked out yesterday and again today.

    Votto, who is eligible to come off the DL Sunday, could begin a rehab assignment at any time. “He could,” Dusty Baker said. “But I don’t want to put a timetable on it. He’s getting better. He’s working on coming back.”


    --An MRI on Edwin Encarnacion wrist confirmed that he had a setback. “He’s not going to out on a rehab,” Baker said. “He’s going to take some more treatment. Hand is tough thing. He won’t hit for a few days.”


    --Jonny Gomes looked at the Nationals pitching lineup for the series and said: “We’ve got some action.” The Nats are left-handers tonight (Ross Detwiler) and Thursday (John Lannan). With left-handers starting, Gomes will be in the lineup.


    --Willy Taveras said his right hamstring is better. “Almost 100 percent,” he said.

    --The tarp is on the field and there is thunder, lightning and high winds in the area. Hopefully, it blows through before game time.

    Who is Dusty trying to sound like? Glenn Chervin??? He COULD come off the DL Sunday. I said he COULD, I didn't say he WOULD!

    Great news to hear that Votto is working out and there is at least a chance he could be back when he comes off the DL.I don't know what kind of problems he is having but I know that it is good sometimes to get back to work and do what is familiar to you.This is probably especially true when playing baseball is your job.

    Joey Votto is going to be alright. He is going to come back better than ever

    I love it that Brandon Phillips said what the majority were thinking.

    i'm confused why everyone in ORG was complaining how boring the game was. Watching Johnny C pitch is not boring.

    The reds arent hitting much right now but still, I would rather win 3-2 than lose 10-8.
    Yep....it is a pleasure watching Cueto mature every game.

    Wonder how Dunn likes it over there so far. Gotta be easy sitting back in a franchise that has no expectations whatsoever to win with his buddy Austin and collecting the paycheck while the Nats sit back as the worst team in baseball.

    You mean Votto's career isn't over? He doesn't have the bubonic plague? Could have fooled me by reading most of the posts here. I told everybody not to freak out.

    I'd so love to have Dunn on this team right now. Maybe we could score a few runs.

    I think with even bringing it up and asking Dunn, Fay is confessing he is the one taking the low, cheap shot road, weak IMO.

    That's not journalism, that's junior high (maybe even in middle school).

    Re: Pre-game Notes Per Fay:

    I agree that I thought it was shady and classless of Fay to bring it up to stir up you know what. That bothered me more then anything else about reading this. Just let it go. Dunn is a class act as he was here. Laynce Nix will never be half the player he is (sorry)

    What the heck is journalism these days if a journalist doesn't ask Dunn about what Brandon said? Fay is doing his job and gets criticized for doing his job. Yet, Dunn misplays ball after ball, can't hit with RISP, and misses 3rd base and we have many Reds fans who never want to question whether Adam is doing his?

    Re: Pre-game Notes Per Fay:

    ^No, that is called fishing for stories and trying to bait someone into an answer on a dead topic that the rest of the world has moved on from. I dont think it was even originally a shot against Dunn anyway. I dont care about soap opera high school BS, which is what this is, i want a sports journalist to focus on sports and the games, not he said/she said, if I want that, I wil buy your journalistic enquirer. I ahve no clue what you are saying or asking in the last sentence/question, Adam doesnt plkay on teh Reds, I dont care what he does or doesnt do, but what are you asking for?
