    But he is so bad at it. He takes fastballs that he should at least recognize enough to try and foul off?

    Flawed roster with no obvious candidate. What's Chris Dickerson doing these days?

    Arredondo strikes out Walker for the first out of the inning.

    It was bound to happen. McCutchen picked off. He was leaning 3 different times.

    Why don't Bruce and or Votto go to the press and stand up for the fans... call Dusty out in the media for his clean up batter brain freeze problem? We all know the media won't do it themselves.

    Chris Dickerson is currently in the minors after averaging a .585 OPS the last two seasons.

    Stubbs, since his terrible first two weeks, is OPSing close to .800.
