    God I hope so -- because this team already needs at least 2 more bats, and not getting Votto back to normal will really make this whole thing more difficult to repeat.

    But whatever. I don't know baseball because some guy who put me on ignore thinks umpires somehow see a TBS graphic showing a pitch .25 off the plate and call it accordingly.

    That was a quick way to get rid of Kontos.

    Kontos came in. Paul is the pinch hitter.

    And Kontos was removed for a lefty

    I don't get sending Bruce to steal. That was a dumb move.

    Weren't they doing pretty well against Kontos?

    Quit being sensible.

    It's Baker's fault For Rolen's error, Hanigan's passed ball, Cozart's error, Latos loosing his cool and grooving one.

    Maybe Dusty wanted to avoid the double play and played the odds that Hanigan would make contact.

    Not a terrible play, just didn't work.
    If this was the thought process, Hanigan should've bunted. Then you may have runners on 2nd and 3rd with 1 out. A much better probable outcome. And if he can't get the bunt down, you have 1 out and runners at 1st and 2nd still.

    I wouldn't pinch hit Cairo for a high school softball player.
