    I hate to say it but....

    Joey Votto getting injured may have been the best thing to happen to this club. Everyone else has pulled together and there is a new hero every night. They all seem to believe in themselves, and no lead or team is insurmountable. Five in a row, 15 of their last sixteen, and 22 of their last 25....They can't possibly keep this up can they?? This is an unreal pace, I'm just going to sit back and enjoy the ride and prepare to buy my playoff tickets.

    Yes I think they'll be a more well rounded team when Votto comes back. I got the feeling before Votto went down the team was sitting back waiting for Joey to make something happen. Now as a team they have more confidence.

    My only problem is when Votto gets back, with Rolen and Ludwick playing like they are right now, where are they going to play Frazier? He has to get in there somewhere.

    I agree, I don't see an easy answer for Frazier on a daily basis. The spots in the Reds lineup that could use an upgrade don't fit for Frazier.

    Frazier has a spot at third...Scotty's body can't hold out with all this play!! If they value his play for October, they need to give him more time off...I know he must be hurtin' for sure after that 'Pete Rose' action to third last night....

    That woulda been me. I was killed for it then to. I'm glad things have worked out for the Reds. Hopefully they can keep it up when Votto and BP gets back.

    Yeah but Frazier should be playing about 27 out of 30 games, Rolen about 23 out of 30 and Ludwick about 27 out of 30.....with Votto back we'll likely see Rolen right on his number, Frazier about 14 starts and Ludwick about 20.

    I have more guesses I'll keep to myself but Rolen and Votto's health are just up in the air.

    But zero reason not to sit Rolen and Votto a decent bit to ensure their health for October.

    This team is resilient and keeps winning despite a lot of things....when Votto gets back and Rolen is still healthy....Dusty will have his most difficult scenario to figure out and if Bruce and Stubbs are molded into their titanic slumps....it will become even greater.

    It's all there and it looks really good on August 5th.

    Ok...I wasn't shooting for rude...just saying he proved to be spot on.

    I will call your analysis spot on.

    Sorry to upset you, guess I should have put a smiley face on the post I was just kidding. By the way I've been a Reds fan for 40 years. Sorry for being outta line.
