OK, I figured it out. They couldn't trade him for 2 weeks because you have to be at least signed for a year before you can be traded. He was signed on August 16 of last year. So I guess they just had an agreement. Interesting things to me anyway . . .
texasdave left us.
Iannetta pinch-hits for Pomeranz and lines to Heisey. Pomeranz only goes five. Odd. He was only at 63 pitches. Maybe he is coming back from injury or something. I have no idea. Pomeranz out so maybe the Reds can get the bats going now. Young with a ground hit up the middle. Young steals second on the pitcher.
I needed a snack.
Fowler lines to Valaika for the second out.
Bottom of the fourth:
1. Iannetta flies out to left. 1 out
2. Eric young singles to center, steals 2nd.
3. Fowler lines out to Valaika, two out.
... sorry I thought I had to catch up. Take the mic back, please.
Young steals third standing up. Pacheco singles him home. 2-0. Two steals pay dividends.
Third base is always stolen on the pitcher, but the young guys need a manager who is going to coach discipline.
Man I wish they would give Alonso some starts at 3rd. He played it early in his career. With him and Votto on the corners, that is some serious power.
Ball four. Wheels coming off for Volquez here in the fifth. 27 pitches so far, nearing the century mark.
Time out as they are checking on Valaika and he is coming out of the game. I wonder what that was about?
