Game 159: vs. NYM



It’s never a good time for our bats to go to sleep; now is next to the worst, save the playoffs. We are now fighting for home field advantage. Regardless of what Pittsburgh does today, we will need to sweep in order to play the WC playoff at GABP. Otherwise, we will play the one game WC game in Pittsburgh.

I take that back…we need only win 2 of 3 over this weekend; we then would have a winning record over Pittsburgh…10-9 and would play the WC game in GABP.

The reds should insist that votto play in the AIL this winter and learn how to hit pitches that are strikes but are outside his comfort zones for singles. He is not paid to walk 5 times in a game but is paid to drive in the tying or winning runs in the 8th or 9th innings. Less than 80 RBIs for the season is not acceptable.
