The Good

Johnny Cueto and Joey Votto. How many teams have two guys like this. They carried the team tonight. Todd Frazier hit a monster shot to dead center in the 2nd inning

The Bad

Jonathan Broxton. Guess who got the win tonight? Don’t anybody ever cite won/loss records by pitchers as proof of their worth.

The Ugly


Not so random thoughts …

The Colorado Rockies came into tonight leading the NL in: AVG, HR, RBI, Slugging, OBP, Fewest Ks. Johnny Cueto could care less. Yes, the Rocks are a different team on the road. But, still….  8Ks for Cueto and only one walk.

This is the third straight 4-3 game for the Reds. Odd. (Correction: 4th straight 4-3 game)

How about Pena in the 2-hole tonight. I love the job Bryan Price is doing. The naysayers can say otherwise, but this guy is not afraid to go outside the proverbial box. It’s refreshing. It’s been long overdue in Cincinnati. When this team gets healthy, the people criticizing Bryan Price are going to look pretty silly.

How strong is Todd Frazier? Good grief. 485 ft. The 6th longest HR in the history of GABP. Only Adam Dunn (535 ft), Juan Francisco (502 ft), Willie Mo Pena (498 ft), Reggie Abercrombie (493 ft) and Alfonso Soriano (492 ft) have hit longer dingers in the ballpark down by the river.

A real show of emotion from Votto as he rounded the bases after his walk-off HR. You could tell the slump was beginning to get to him. And you could tell he didn’t want to discuss it with Jeff Piecoro.
