    Reds are 6-12 in save chances this year. I'll be right back I'm going to go throw up.

    That pitch to Morneau caught just a wee too much of the outside corner. He was able to drive it.

    Alright, win it now.

    That ball came a couple batters too late.

    I get that but if I was a hitter and saw a catcher actually stand up I'm pretty sure I'd tell myself "Well here comes an obvious ball, don't even pay attention".

    Okay, a 1st pitch Votto walkoff. Yeah, I could live with that.

    True, however the batter better not be peeking behind him. That is one of those unwritten rules lol.

    Go ahead and look at a hitter closely next at bat and tell me what he's looking at. I'll give you a hint - it's not the catcher. Most batters don't even have the catchers in their eyesight for most of the at bat.
