    Reds go for 11 straight against Volquez.

    No big deal if Marquis ends the streak on Tuesday. Or Kip Wells on Wednesday. Actually, I kind of like Kip Wells, he pitched pretty well for the Reds.

    Must. Beat. Volquez.

    Volquez, Marquis, and Wells?

    I want 13 straight.

    Well, last time the Reds faced Volquez was the night the thankfully short lived uber annoying meme "tip your cap" took hold in the game thread.

    Padres just put Hatcher on the DL and called up Bread Boxberger. That means all four players in the Latos trade could play tonight. #reds

    From now on, every pitcher's size shall be measured by whether or not he's bigger than a Bread Box(berger).

    I think if Alonso was truly an elite hitter, he could do better in Petco.
    Adrain Gonzales had a 904 OPS season there in 2010.. It can be done.

    Could he do better if he wasn't in Petco? Sure.
    I'm glad he couldn't play LF and the Reds traded him.
    Even if he could play LF as well as Ludwick, I'd rather have Ludwick this year.
    Of course, Alsono has a good chance to get better, but I doubt he's ever a 900 OPS player. There's not many of those. To put it in context, Bruce has never done it, despite playing in the GAB, and Bruce was more of a "can't miss" than Alsonso.. Maybe Jay will do it eventually too, but it doesn't seem very likely.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Worth noting that Alonso is actually hitting better at Petco than away from it.

    Alonso isn't an elite power guy like Adrian Gonzalez is/was. That makes a difference in a place like Petco. Alonso has talked about how he has basically altered his swing because he knows trying to hit for power there won't work for him. You would see a different guy in other places.

    Agree. As I said about him for years, and as he's demonstrating tonight, he would have been a killer in GABP.
