Didn't see the game, but some very good commentary on the offense in this game thread. I hope the FO is attuned to these concerns as are some of the posters in this thread.
Get ready for tommorow's lineup that will look something like this possibly...
This place use to be fun
Sean Casey is on the way!!!
8 runs in 3 games without Votto. This team is in big time trouble.

Bruce, Frazier and Ludwick are better than anyone in that 1982 lineup, except for maybe Dan Driessen. Basically, Dan Driessen was their Joey Votto. The Reds were dead last in scoring, averaging 3.36 runs a game. That was easily the worst offensive team I have ever seen. I do understand the need to block out all memories of that 1982 season, so I'll forgive you for not remembering it clearly

Fay mentioned in his game notes that Valdez and Cairo will probably start todays game. Leake better pitch a shutout because if they score more than one run it will be a near miracle.
