    Random Thoughts

    I wonder if Volquez the pitcher complains about lack of support from Volquez the fielder and Volquez the baserunner.

    Phillips, Votto and Bruce are the chunks of meat in a thin soup.

    Can a pitcher be said to throw more than 100 mph if he can't control it and it hirts his arm?

    I wonder if Dodgers fans complain about how much time Vin Scully spends talking about Reds players.

    It sure is weird to be scoreboard-watching the Pirates.

    I figure by the All-Star break Marty and Jim will have figured out how to pronounce Lllvll.

    Is it too soon to talk of Marty and Jim?

    Seriously, are the Reds setting a record for most broadcasters in a season?

    How could a team with Corey Patterson and Edwin Encarnacion take two of three from the Reds?

    1 I guess "we" shoulda kept Patterson and EE...dangit

    2 I'm pulling for the Pirates even at my own expense

    3 Volquez probably wouldn't look so bad if not for wave athletes like Wood, Leake, and Arroyo

    4 always surprises me that RedZone as a whole isn't interested in paying Phillips long term(at least with a relatively stupid contract)and that more often than not his impact on this team is constantly taken for granted.

    Agreed on number 4. Phillips should have gotten the deal that Arroyo got.

    Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS

    Behind the arms of Cy Reyes and Cy Morrow.
