Votto Pretends, Via Photograph, Not to Hate You, Reds 6-4
The offense stopped its homerun fast with Heisey doing some yard work in the 6th. Votto hit the team's second bomb of the day in the 8th with a couple of his good friends on base. That provided the necessary cushion for Coco to throw strikes. That he did, striking out the side (after walking the lead off).
As everyone is aware, the Reds Rocket doesn't question Dusty (whenever I type that sentence I always follow it with a but making the first sentence superfluous) but, maybe it's time for Heisey to get a little more regular time in left. Sure Fred Lewis and Gomes are pretty great but Heisey, at least at this point, appears to be the best option of the three. His defense is strong enough, he has a little pop and he even gets on base via walk once in a while. I'll have to mention that next time I see Dusty, which is frequent. Reds hammer Kershaw again tonight. Reds! Reds! Reds!
