    Random Thoughts

    Few people realize that Samuel Beckett wrote a baseball play called "Waiting for Votto."

    At least Melky Cabrera has that web design class to fall back on.

    A bigger story would be if Melky had tested negative for testosterone.

    If only there was a metric for how long a slump will last.

    The bullpen is shaky because the starters were too good.

    Now the starters are shaky and the bullpen is rusty.

    A six-game lead feels better on the way up.

    First the Brooklyn Dodgers moved to L.A. and now the Boston Red Sox.

    The Reds never seem to play well in national telecasts, so it's good that the playoffs aren't.

    I marvel at your thought-processes.

    A lot of truth in these. Particularly the ones about the starters and bullpen.

    Waiting for Votto... one of your best ever. Still laughing at it.

    When the Pirates and Cards play for 19 innings, the Reds should emerge victorious.

    In my opinion, this is your best one yet. Well done, Bcubb.
