    I’ll believe the Scooter extension when I see it.

    Glad to see Garrett get out of the inning unscathed.

    Yes! The reds have players who get on base. The reds are one of the top teams in baseball in runs scored. 4th in the NL and top 10 in baseball. So imo they dont need someone else who gets on more and better average. Because while he will never have a good OBP. But When he does get on base he scores. Then on defense he saves runs. So for a team that is top 10 in runs scored but dead last in runs given up. I think it's more important having a starting CF who saves more runs than we realize with plays he makes look routine, that other players wouldn't even get to. I think he is worth having as the starting CF and not a 4th outfielder. Everyone is so fixed on his average and obp. But they don't need someone who is a lot better than that. Whoever the they replaced him with wouldn't be as good defensively and also probably wouldn't even score as much as him, even if that player had a better average.

    As a lead off man his average and obp hurt. Where they have him bat now is perfect for him and reason why he imo should keep being a starter and not even a 4th outfielder.

    Agreed! The reds did come out and say they will increase their payroll quite a bit next year. So maybe he is one of the things they were talking about.

    Billy with a great catch. However, as a kid of the Jim Edmonds era, my shock and awe is mostly zapped.

    Pumped to jump on Twitter after the FCC game and see that we picked up another win against the Cardinals!

    Reds blow Cardinals out again that the Cards fired their Manager, bench coach and hitting coach after the game. Should fire their defense coach. They can't catch a cold.
