    Suarez is bad too but Votto just struck out looking in the bottom of the ninth with the tying run on second.

    Thanks, ice on the shoulder...but it's worth it.

    I was worried about today as I was traveling. As soon as I pulled up the game we tied it up. I had good feeling that we'd put it away after that.

    Senzel's and Winker's hits will get the pub after the way the game ended, but Mahle and Bowman's performance should not be overlooked.

    No, that won't work. I'll break down by August and be done for the year.

    I'm OK with a 40 game winning streak if it means you break down.

    You should call the Warriors about getting a job. You would fit in well there.

    Isn't that the line of thinking that got you sent to the minors to begin with?

    Yep. Go get 'em!

    Starting on Friday, I will off the grid for three weeks, taking my wife and son on a once in a lifetime type of trip. So, rather than trying to manage from afar whenever and wherever I may find internet service, I am taking a leave of absence from the Reds threads beginning this weekend.

    While I will be rooting from across the country, I have full faith in our BGP Reds GM @LRCW and my bench coach @Voice of Reason to take over the reigns. Who the starters may be will be up to them. There may be some callups, rehab assignments, spot starts, or even a trade made, so everybody better be ready to go and do what the new skip may ask you to do.

    Hey, it's all about the team, I thought. If someone sweeps one of the best teams in baseball, I say go with the hot hand until it's not!
