    You are wrong. On any ball hit to the right side of the infield, the pitcher's first rule is to get to the bag as quickly as possible -- until it's clear he isn't needed. Bronson hesitated first. Maybe we would have gotten the runner and maybe we wouldn't have, but Bronson didn't do what he's supposed to do on that play and he himself would admit that.

    Samardzija looks like he could easily pitch 11 or 12 innings tonight.

    What's Frazier hitting now, .750, .800? Yet he can't get a start?

    That is Baseball 101. You learn that in little league. On ANY ball hit to the right side of the infield the pitcher breaks AUTOMATICALLY towards first. End of conversation.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    This guy has 4x as many BB's as K's and we swing at the first pitch.

    Cozart isn't a leadoff hitter either pew.

    Reds (face facts time) do not have a lot of real good players. Votto, Phillips, Bruce start for most teams and Cozart and Mez for a few. Otherwise, not much to work with. A very .500 team put together by Walter J

    Never seen so many batters swing at bad pitches and take good pitches

    These right handed batters simply cannot hit right handed pitchers. Just pitch around Votto and Bruce and any right hander will beat the Reds.l We need another left handed batter in the lineup, but i've been saying that now for 3 years.
