    I like Hernandez. I really do. I am fine with him getting some starts and trust him completely when he's in there.

    But this is why I really would like to see Hanigan as the primary catcher (nearing 60 plate appearances now)...

    .396 BA
    2 HR & 16 RBI
    .508 OBP
    .625 SLG (.229 ISO)
    10 BB & 5 K

    Oh, and he's thrown out 46% of the baserunners that have attempted to steal on him.

    I don't think I'm being irrational hoping he becomes the starter - even if he gives up some starts once or twice a week to Ramon.

    Phillips leads off with a single. Votto flied out to center.

    Wouldn't you know it. Rolen with a single. Crud. Phillips still on would be nice right now.

    Before the 1990 season my two house mates and I decided that we were going to break Pedro Borbon's supposed curse on the Reds through the creation of a "power triumvirate" activated by the fact that we each carried a Pedro Borbon baseball card in our wallet for the entire year.

    Reds still not very good on the base paths. At least in regards to pick offs and failed steal attempts.

    I looked at the radar. They should be good to make this one official. Rain is coming up from the SW and may be there in the next hour or so. Stay tuned for further weather updates. Now back to the game.

    Thanks. I tried pulling it up on the weather channel...but it wasn't working.
