Great, and with that he improved his career postseason OPS to .619. Slugging % of .270.

I love Votto, but we cant deny he has been horrible in the postseason.

I mean, yea, he hasn’t been good. But we’re talking 11 games counting today.

I don't get it either there is 50% chance of rain there. They played in way worse conditions in Cleveland last night. Apparently the Cubs are going with the you can't be eliminated if you don't play strategy

A low centered over Lake Huron is bringing rain down from the north. We’ve got a chance of rain here from it later. But yes, the Cubs are pansies.

Acuna is the kind of hitter the Reds desperately need. Maybe Garcia can come close with experience.

No chance with this current hitting coach.

I am not trying to dunk on Votto, and I fully understand RBI doesnt = good hitter but the man has 1 RBI in his postseason career. This is the kind of thing that sinks HoF chances. And rightfully so.

There probably no way we’d ever know one way or another, but I’d be shocked to learn that there wasn’t a significant amount of covid cases caused by the crowds yesterday and today.

Silver lining, after we set another crazy record for futility by being shut out of an ENTIRE SERIES......they're gone for a long time. And they'll be somewhat different next year. No idea how different, but every little bit helps.

Start with that walking, mouth-breathing humanoid of a manager and just keep whacking until you have something that only resembles this year's club in name.

Dumb, I don't know.

I never agreed with it though.
I mean the starting pitching is no doubt better and at this point now the bullpen might be as well.

But that team was better defensively, more athletic, and had an in his prime Joey Votto.

This team has literally no one right now that pitchers worry about that much at the plate. Don't make a mistake, sure. But they know if they make their pitches that they can get every single one of the guys in this lineup out multiple times in the game.

This is true and something I've thought about. But I also don't know what evidence we have from the Reds player development during 2016-19 to think Anderson would be this good if he was in the Cincinnati organization.

So the record is 20 innings, not 21 as I thought earlier.

The 1921 New York Giants didn't score until the 3rd inning of Game 3 of the 1921 World Series. They scored 4 runs that inning, the first two by a pair of bases loaded walks. Then they went on to win the World Series.

The big difference, though, is those Giants were playing a best of 9. We don't have the time to wait like they did to finally get some offense going.

I feel the exact same way. I called the third time through the order and Acuna or Freeman putting the Braves on the board before it happened.

If I'm an objective person I look at this and say, look, everybody's having trouble scoring, after 13 innings yesterday whoever won was probably just lucky, and a one-run deficit is overcome in half a second. This is still as anybody's series as anybody's series can get.
