    Who was it on here mentioned they should change Votto's first name to Tobe, Two Outs Bases Empty.

    Welp. Weeks 2 run homerun.

    2-0 Milwaukee.

    Seriously, once you give Votto a huge contract, it would seem important to surround him with players who will compliment his skills.

    Weeks with a two run homer. This game is a real long shot for the Reds.

    Anyone still want Chris Heisey as the everyday CFer? Stubbs catches that Hart triple.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Stubbs might catch that HR too. It looked like it went off heisey's glove.

    Reds do get a break, though I'd trade that break for another break in a more winnable game.

    Me either, but I've seen some suggest trading Stubbs and putting Heisey in CF.

    Second point for today- Phillips must get a terrible break out of the batter's box. He's not slow yet he hits into a lot of DPs. On that last play, the swinging bunt to third, he should have beaten it, but for some reason he isn't that fast from home plate to first base.

    Hope you are all having a good day.
    The Reds are 6th in #2 OBP, 2 pts away from being top 5.

    I think those suggestions came before Heisey's recent extended starting stretch. Heisey has around 200 at bats, he's played a lot this year.

    Nobody is asking for him to be a regular player at this point, to my knowledge.

    Yep. Cozart and Stubbs tend to rake in the #2 spot. It's #28 who is almost single-handidly dragging the whole thing down.

    1-2-3 after the Weeks HR. 2-0 Milwaukee to the bottom of 2.

    Sometimes I wish I lived in Cincinnati.

    It would be fantastic to be able to go to the park this afternoon.

    Many still advocate trading Stubbs and putting Heisey in center because they're basically the same guy. I roll the eyes every time I see it.
