I think that in a year or two, one of these guys - Frazier, Dorn, Valaika, Cumberland, Stubbs - will be ready to replace Dunn. They won't hit as many home runs as Dunn, but they should have similar OPS. - 757690, July 22, 2008
Alonso will be playing 1B for the REDS and batting 4th one year from today. - Kingspoint, July 9, 2009
On a full count, the Reds had Ichiro picked off at first. As Ichiro was in the pickle, Wilson broke for home. Cairo, the first baseman, threw a little bit high to the plate, and Wilson got in under the tag.
The game is now 2-1, Reds.
Leake has now balked, and Ichiro is on third.
Yeah, BLEEDS, it's hard keeping up with Leake's pace.
Janish makes a diving play on a smash hit to third and guns down Lopez at first to end the inning.
At the end of 3, it's 2-1, Reds.
Bruce is jammed and grounds out to 3rd to open the 4th inning.
Cairo grounds out weakly to first. Quickly two outs.
Janish grounds out to second to end the top of the 4th. Still 2-1, Reds.
On an 0-2 pitch, Leake hits Griffey in the foot to begin the Mariners' 4th.
Byrnes with a base hit to left.
Runners on first and second.
Gutierrez grounds into a 1-6-3 double play. Nice work by Leake. 2 outs.
Garko grounds out back to Leake to end the inning. Leake did a great job getting out of that jam. It's still 2-1 heading into the top of 5.
Sean White, a RHP, has replaced French on the mound for the Mariners.
On a full count, Hanigan flies out to CF. 1 out.
Stubbs strikes out looking. 2 away in the top of 5.
Cabrera gets a 2-out walk to bring Votto up to the plate.
Votto with a HR to left!! He's now 3-3 on the day with two singles and the HR! He now has 9 RBI on the spring, and the Reds lead 4-1.
