    Really? Should we just say that he's doing great? Most everyone here loves the guy, and want nothing more than a hot streak. But he's in a real funk right now.

    Not many guys get tossed in the middle of an AB. And he gets credit for the K.

    Volstad grounds to 2nd


    3-1 Reds after 5.

    I've never seen a guy start arguing after an ump called a ball after a strike. Maybe a strike after a ball that he thought was the same location, but not the other way around.

    Silly way to get thrown out.

    Yes really. Piling on by criticizing his overall defense is too much in my opinion.

    Don't be too sure. There's a good 5 or 6 guys I think we can rotate in and out of that spot at any time. But, this Cairo/Bruce pair may have some mileage left.

    I see. I agree with that. He had a few head-scratchers in the field, but overall his defense is fine and not the issue tonight.
