So far, the biggest highlight of the Cincinnati Reds' season is that they scored a run. That, and Joey Votto isn't dead yet.

I don't think this will be accepted as the club's 2017 tagline.
"Come see Reds baseball... Joey Votto isn't dead yet!"

My friend has a bassinet that he can control via wifi to rock and/or play music and looks like a space egg. It's amazing and he can rock his baby while we play Smash Bros
Eno Sarris

sounds like maybe more than $40 tho
Carson Cistulli

This is actually something you invented in a dream.

I just turned on the first game of mlb.tv career
Carson Cistulli

I will reiterate, this is a great complement to mlb.tv:
5 Run Homer

I want that bassinet and I don't even have a child or a significant other

Am I a bad fan for hoping the Royals fall out of it early so they can burn it to the ground at the deadline?
Travis Sawchik
6:44
You're a rational fan

Hey, I have to step out for a moment. I will return for at least one or three of Yandy Diaz's plate appearances.
Travis Sawchik
6:45
I'd look for a killer return for Duffy, too
Trevor Gobble
6:46
Many years from now when bumgarner retires and is eventually considered for the hall, will they also take into account his value added at the plate? Just curious
Travis Sawchik
6:46
Of course
It's value
Harold
6:47
Gerrit cole looked so good then fell apart :/
Travis Sawchik
6:48
That happens time to time with him....He has trouble getting over mistakes. Pitches emotionally on occasion
Eno Sarris
6:48
Jon Gray, too. And they both didn't throw their third/fourth options much.
Travis Sawchik
6:48
Cole falls in love with fastball. High usage rate
6:49
Trumbo walk-off?
Eno Sarris
6:49
Well I saw that on TV before I saw it on the feed haha.
6:50
I prefer Trumbone to Trumbo Jumbo
Jack
6:51
Travis, any insight into the cutch plate discipline issues recently?

6:52
Who said stand alone power doesn't have value?
Travis Sawchik
6:52
He seemed to improve in August and Sept .... Let's wait and see. His bat has to bounce back, because the glove is in a four-year decline
Eno Sarris
6:52
Yeah that defensive decline is v trackable.
6:53
Oh man it's not going to be a ton of fun in San Diego this year, maybe.
Travis Sawchik
6:53
If I get an MVP vote again, regardless of year, I'm voting for Grandal
Lorcan
6:54
Yaz Grandal just unleashed an awesome bat drop from an over the top arm slot
Travis Sawchik
6:54
Might be a good year to make a few trips to minor league affiliates, San Diego fans
Matt
6:55
Are Manny Machado and Nolan Arenado on a serious HoF path? I mean you kinda have to be put them on the Adrian Beltre career path with maybe more consistency, right?
Travis Sawchik
6:55
Absolutely The skill sets are there. But accumulating counting stats requires health and longevity

Blue jays left 26 men on base, 8 courtesy of villain Bautista

Man, all the AL East fans HATE Bautista. What have I missed while covering the Pirates?
