    Love to see Ludwick playing out his career instead of giving YRod an opportunity.

      Price has completely gone over to the “old school manager” mentality. Got to play the veterans because that’s what the “unwritten rules” say. I’m sick of the whole thing, like having a root canal, can’t wait for it just to be over.

      I don’t understand why not just play Y Rod? This season is done so why not give him a chance?

        Because we wouldn’t want the contending teams to think the Reds aren’t trying now would we? They have to play Ludwick for some reason. He probably won’t even be on the team next year. Why go into next year having a clue what you have in the young guys when you can go into next year being clueless. I don’t get how Walt or Price either one can do their jobs this off season by playing Ludwick the rest of this year but hey what do I know I’m just some guy sitting here at home complaining. I just don’t get it.

    Looking doubtful that Votto gets back on the field this year.

    Price: “He’s not pain free. He’s not 100 percent and he won’t be at any point in time the rest of this season. The question is, do we want to play him at less than 100 percent? He still hasn’t seen any live pitching. He still has a ways to go, in my opinion, before he’d be ready to go.”

      If they know for sure that he won’t be completely healthy then shouldn’t they just shut the book on trying to get him out there? I get the point in wanting him to get some at bats but at this point it is definitely pointless. Especially to sit there and say he isn’t going to be 100%. Then let the man heal completely.

    8 pitch inning. Man oh man. These guys are quick if nothing else.

    Leake throwing batting practice. Opening Day 2015 can’t come soon enough

    Once more with feeling…Negron should have made the team out of spring training.

    • Shchi Cossack

      Yes he should have and he would have if WJ hadn’t signed Schumaker to a 2 yr/$5.5MM contract then signed Santiago to a minor league contract with a handshake agreement to make the 25 man roster.

    completely out of zone. Like the Cards need help.

      Beyond ugly. Not sure there is a word for it at least not for use in a public forum.

    hate seeing how quickly this team has turned into a flaming septic tank
