*Devin Mesoraco has been activated from the DL. Tucker Barnhart optioned to Triple-A Louisville.

*Here is a nugget of info courtesy of the Elias Sports Bureau: Reds first baseman Joey Votto and second baseman Brandon Phillips have made 787 starts together, the most on the right side of the infield for any tandem in franchise history and second-most among active players behind Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard and second baseman Chase Utley (950). First baseman Frank McCormick and second baseman Lonny Frey rank second in Reds history with 774 starts together.

*Across from Busch Stadium, the St. Louis version of The Banks has opened. It’s called Ballpark Village. It includes the new Cardinals Hall of Fame. If it weren’t raining cats and dogs, I might have taken a walk over there to check out the new neighborhood.


RISP – 8/40 (.200)
R (15) ranked 28th
BA (.210) ranked 26th
OBP (.287) ranked 23rd
SLG% (.315) ranked 26th

Six games just six games

What’s with the sac. bunt of BP in the first, w/Hamilton already on 2nd? Wasted at bat, leaving just 2 more at bats.

I don’t know what they’re thinking. That’s not using Hamilton like he’s could be used. Use him to get the batters good pitches. If they start getting curves or change ups send him!!!!
