    There are so many posts on RedsZone directed to Valdez. They really should be directed to the REGULAR players who have fallen into September swoons so far.

    Funny thing is the only game the Reds won this weekend, Valdez got a key hit, albeit a swinging bunt, but it produced two runs. And he fouled off a gazillion pitches, a very fine at bat in a key spot.

    Valdez is what he is, a versatile backup player who can't hit. More of the guys who CAN hit need to do so.
    This is a nice post.

    Valdez is likely our best alternative at SS with Cozart out.

    Such as it is.

    First batter flies out to left. Forgot the guy's name. Now Presley up and singles.

    McCutchen gets ahead 3-0. Swings away and misses, 3-1 count.

    McCutchen walks, two on.

    I'm not doing PBP, I'm bad luck.

    Bucs don't score. That much I can say.

    Yeah, that's what I'm thinking... I've got the Bengals game on and Reds game updating via Yahoo.

    How close was the fly out for Votto? Yahoo says "Deep Left Center"

    It was to the warning track. Earlier in the year he probably would have hit it out.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Balls typically travel better later in the summer, although the 'peak' is probably July and August, admittedly.

    Nonetheless, I suppose it depends on the weather on that given day.

    Hell of a grab by Phillips there.
    Is it "next season" yet?

    Bottom two, no score, amazing play by Phillips, as Gizmo said.
