    Wind is blowing in which means Home Runs will be hard to hit. Reds will score very few against Hendricks today. Disco needs to hold them down.

    Reds need to move Votto down in the order until he starts making hard contact again. Choking up a lot and crouching more which tells me he does not see the ball all that well coming out of pitchers hand and is trying to compensate for it.

    Well I guess that was Home Runs for the Reds. Schwarber lead off with a deep drive.

    He needs his eyes checked.

    It is not a vision problem. It is picking up the pitch as it leaves pitchers hand. That is why swings are very tentative and he is defensively hitting not offensively.

    Another Reds favorite. A walk and then a Home Run to Bryant. Maybe we can win tomorrow. I could not type fast enough. Rizzo just hit a bomb.

    Votto has another single and has looked better today than I have seen him in a month. Winker with a big at bat with runners on the corners.

    Winker with a double but got lucky as he should have been threw out at second but Cubs cut the throw off. Would have been another killer out on the bases.

    As soon as I commented about him crouching so far and looking defensive, the next two times up he is ready to hit on first pitch and a little more erect in his stance.
