    Yeah, it makes sense. Just think it should have been an offseason change. I guess he just didnt feel comfortable which is not good but the change has been a rough go so far to say the least.

    I'll agree with that. Seems like a long time since he's had a big hit.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    If Wood and Bauer are free agents after this season, why not use the money you would need to sign them and go after Cole??

    I kind of remembered something that you couldn't argue balks.... Am I mis-remembering that?

    Not sure but I think they don’t have to tell you why he balked.

    Yeah the swing change thing seems like a red flag, not sure what the thought process there was. Definitely more of an offseason thing.

    I had the thought today that maybe they dump Turner Ward and elevate Eckler to hitting coach for next season.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    Seems like a little bit of managerial overkill to double switch in 8-2 game....

    Punisher drives in a run with a duck snort.

    Bases loaded, probably the last chance in this one.

    Well that is good.
    A French prison inspector wrote in 1837: It is to the prisons that the historian must go if he is to make a sane judgment of a peoples moral state.
