    Votto can't get back fast enough.

    Slower now. He had a setback. Another 7-10 days. Removed some floating cartilage in his knee.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Hard to feel good about daily Cairo/Valdez in the lineup. Need to acquire a 1B/3B type who can actually hit.

    and then Stubbs, shockingly, strikes out looking.

    Phillips pops out to right. Travis Wood hits 94mph on the gun?

    DeJesus flew out to deep center
    Barney grounded out to third
    Rizzo singles up the middle off of a diving Cozart
    Soriano flies out to center

    0-0 after 1

    Reds hacking away so far. Ludwick with a one pitch out, like Cozart.
    Frazier lines the first pitch to center for a single though.
    Heisey flies out to right.

    With Votto out, this team has no one that goes up there and gives a professional at-bat each time. Reds are hackin' at the first pitch almost always.

    Hey, just worked for Frazier though.

    The Reds are making things incredibly easy for Travis Wood today. Not making him work at all.
