    I rag on Dusty all of the time, but tonight he brought his closer in to the game down 1 run. Maybe he was just getting work in and maybe it wouldn't have mattered, but I liked knowing that Dusty was still acting like the victory was possible.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Ya but when he played for the tie in the 9th, he called down to the pen and told them to get Harang ready...

    That was awesome. As someone else posted, sometimes it is this kind of crazy game that wakes a team up.

    Stubbs and Heisey walking were less probable than a walkoff slam by Votto. Gotta tip my hat to those wild swingers.

    Considering how much Votto values family, the fact that this game happened on Mother's Day has to be extra special for him.

    I just checked the standings and you are wrong.

    They are 17-16, 2.5 games out of first.

    Fans who declare a loss well before a loss occurs don't deserve to celebrate a walk off grand slam.

    I hope that when Votto hit his grand slam you buried your head in shame.

    Because you certainly didn't deserve the right to cheer.

    We need to gain a game on the Cards every 51.6 games.

    Can it be done?

    According to Elias, Votto is the first player in MLB history to hit three homers in the same game in which one of them was a walk off Grand Slam.

    If you go to reds.com and watch the "Must C: Clutch" clips, Marty's call is at the end of the segment. Not sure if this link works...

    Man, that little skip Votto gives after he slams that is about as emotional as I've ever seen him, I think.

    Also like the pre-emptive protective covering of the head when he crosses the plate.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Yeah, the guys might want to go easy pounding on that 225 million dollar piece of equipment.
