    I know they were all over him on TV for not trying it....but, honestly, from the camera angles that I saw, he'd been out by a mile. I don't think Hatcher sends most guys running at full speed if the left fielder has the ball where he caught it last night...let alone one of the slowest guys on the team, from a dead stop. Billy...Peraza...Schebler... Scooter? Sure. Votto...Barnhart...Winker? I think they'd all have been out.

    Also, when Lorenzen's spot came up in the 10th...yes, we had Suarez on first, but there were two out. Hindsight is always 20/20, but I think they should've let Lorenzen bat there and saved Cruz for a situation more critical. There was a pretty good chance the Reds were going to need more than 1 hit to score that inning anyway. No need to fire your last bullet when you have someone like Lorenzen already there.

    2-0 count and a pop up bunt with 2 guys on. Come on.

    Suarez hits a GS, and it's 4-0 Reds in the 3rd.

    One good thing the Reds have done was sign him long term. Specifically now that Senzel cant play and who know how or if he will ever be MLB ready now with is issues.

    He's an airhead but isn't that on the 3rd base coach as much as Votto? I could even throw some blame on the manager for not reminding the coach of the situation.

    Yeah...a win. My streak at Reds games continues...4 straight games with 10 Reds strikeouts (one short for pizza for those counting).

    I disagree. His defense is premiere.
