    I look at their lineup and Sampson's straight fastball and I see a ton of hard hit balls.

    I look at how Sampson's pitching and think that's the case with any team he faces.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    I think there are nearly as many here tonight as people in the stands

    shockingly --- Sampson only gives up one in the first ---

    Why on earth would the Pirates do a sac bunt with their 2 hitter in the first inning??????????????????????????????????? Against a rookie with a 6+ ERA??????????????????????????????

    I have been driven nuts by the Reds doing this over the past three years (though I don't remember it this year) so it is nice to see others do something equally stupid.

    I figured it was just to confound the idea of 10 hard hit balls off of Sampson

    In the world of competitve Reds baseball, two minor league playoff games tonight. Three Reds minor league teams in the playoffs. Wonder if they will draw more or less than the Reds tonight.

    I will take the Reds.....

    Billings is at home and will probably draw 2-3,000. Daytona is on the road and it's the Florida State League.
