    Did Dick Stuart write a book about 1B defense that Joey reads as much as Ted Williams book?

    Yeah I'm old. No doubt about that, but my Dad always used to say that when the Reds were sure to lose a game. He would say that, turn off the radio or TV and head for bed. After a rant or two.

    I don't think it is a care thing I think he is a perfectionist and takes his craft pretty seriously. That being said the defense has sucked for awhile and it is hard to find an explanation.

Most posters agreed and said Cingrani must be hurt, otherwise it made no sense.
    So you really, really do not like this decision?

    This is not what you want your bullpen to do.

    And just a careless E on Votto that you don't want your big buck superstar to make.

    It could be the "I've got too much $ in my pocket to care as much anymore" syndrome that many of them get?

    Honestly, getting upset at this game makes no sense since the 2014 Reds aren't going anywhere. I need to find a new hobby this summer. Too bad I hate golf.

    After the play in Atlanta on Sunday, no way in hell this should get overturned.

    Rentaria is a punk. Up by 5 and you protest a call at first. Of course, Thom defends him.

    Hahaha that was also more frustrating for me than this one.

    And the first Ike Davis GS game.

    I don't blame him. You never know how many runs you might need.

    Evidently replay blows another call (good for us - I'm listening on the radio). This whole system is a joke.
