    That's the kind of at bat by Bruce that upsets people.

    It doesn't mean he stinks but to fan with them loaded there is unfortunate.

    Hopefully next year he will more consistently hit the fly ball in that spot.

    You probably wanted to say more than just "unfortunate"?

    Is this guy that overpowering or one of those guys who throws just out of the strike zone and with this bunch of hitters.....that have been taught to be aggressive, unable to distinguish pitches that are not strikes, they are just close enough to hit?

    Nats threatening with two men on and no outs in the bottom of the fourth.

    Cueto hangs tough. Nats don't capitalize. Still 1-0 Reds entering the fifth. Fast game.

    Good throw by Janish gets Gomes on very close play.

    Nothing doing for either team in the fifth. Detwiler is a Rottweiler, but so far, Cueto is dealing and outdueling the Nat starter.

    Reds batters fail again to pad the cushion. Still 1-0 going into the bottom of the sixth. Detwiler probably spent with 100+ pitches. Cueto at an economical 67 pitches.

    Seven pitches and Cueto retires the side. We're on to the seventh. Wake up your bats, Reds!

    Coffey sighting, we just need to pull David Weathers and Everyday Eddie out of the mothballs to find all of our 2006 closers.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.
