    I know the Reds are trying but if have to get things worked out now for next year. Reds are behind 7 or 8 teams and you just are not catching and passing that many teams.

    Votto just struck out looking on a border line high strike with guys on first and third and one out. He would rather strike out than swing at a border line strike. This is one of the areas I have the most trouble with a 36 RBI player.

    We had to give up that homer to Trout but it was a solo shot. Reds up 6-2 in 6th inning.

    Glad Reds scored 5 in the first inning because they can not hit this Rookie pitcher at all.

    Peralta comes in and walks first hitter followed by a isingle. You just can't use him.

    I get so sick and tired of all the pinch hitting early in the game just because of lefty/righty matchups. It’s asinine. Outfield should be Winker -LF, Senzel-Cf and Aquino- Rf. VanMeter at -2B. By the way Aquino is very good defensively and has a cannon.

    By the way Wandy needs DFA’d after the game.

    Nobody was effective out of the pen except for Lorenzen and Iglesias. Hernandez should be ashamed that he could not get three outs with a five run lead. Relievers needs to learn to throw strikes.

    Peralta and Hernandez are awful almost every time they come in, been that way for awhile now!

    You must go see Trout play. I loved that I got to see him in STL this summer.

    Castillo with a great performance tonight. Career high with 13Ks. The 11th brought quite an applause with free pizza for everyone.

    I'd like to see Pujols get one more start in GABP, in a losing effort of course.
